After This: When Life Is Over, Where Do We Go?
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: April 2015
Duration: 6 hours 47 minutes
Claire Bidwell Smith follows The Rules of Inheritance with After This—an exploration of the afterlife that is part personal and part prescriptive, an invitation on a journey into the unknown.
In her therapy practice specializing in grief, Smith confronts the quandary of what happens next. In a dynamic five-part structure, she answers the unanswerable questions—Will I ever see my parents again? Can my parents see me now, even though they are gone? Will I remain connected to my own daughters when I die?—for herself and for all of us. Chronicling our steps along the path that bridges this world and the next, she undergoes past-life regressions, sessions with mediums and psychics, and immerses herself in the ceremonies of organized religion and the rigors of scientific experimentation.
After This is unique in the power of the personal that underlies the book’s message: what we believe about what happens next affects everything about how we live—and love—right now.
“With wisdom and grace, Claire Bidwell Smith navigates the mysteries of grief to show us that there is great meaning and even magic to be found in exploring the unknown.”—Maria Shriver, New York Times bestselling author of What’s Heaven?
