About Brian L. Weiss
Brian Weiss, M.D., is an American psychiatrist. His research includes reincarnation, past life regression, future-life progression and survival of the human personality after death.Personal and Professional Life Weiss graduated from the Yale University School of Medicine in 1970, completing an internship in internal medicine at the New York University Medical Center then returning to Yale for a two-year residency in psychiatry. Weiss currently lives with his wife Carol in Miami, Florida, where he writes and conducts public seminars on the subject of reincarnation. He is the Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami and Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Past Life Regression and Future Life Progression According to Weiss, in 1980 one of his patients - "Catherine" - began discussing past life experiences under hypnosis. Weiss has stated that he did not believe in reincarnation at the time but, after confirming elements of Catherine's past-life stories through research into public records, came to be convinced of the survival of an element of the human personality after death. Since 1980, Weiss claims he has regressed more than 4,000 patients. Weiss advocates the therapeutic benefits of hypnotic regression, noting his belief that many present-life phobias and ailments are rooted in past-life experiences that - when acknowledged by the patient - have a curative effect on the present-life condition. Criticism Reincarnation researcher the late Dr. Ian Stevenson penned an essay expressing concern about hypnotic regression, noting his belief that nearly all "hypnotically evoked "previous personalities" are entirely imaginary just as are the contents of most dreams." Weiss' research, which has been conducted without standard scientific protocols or peer review, has also been criticized for relying, as proof of reincarnation, on personal information about Weiss' deceased son that was provided by "Catherine" during a regression of her to "the space between lives." Media Weiss is a frequent guest on national television and radio talk shows, including: Oprah, Coast to Coast AM, Larry King Live and 20/20. He is the author of seven books on the subject of reincarnation, including Only Love is Real, a USA Today bestseller. Weiss was mentioned in the song, "No Creo" by Colombian singer Shakira.
