Lifecycles combines the best scientific testimonies about reincarnation with philosophically sound yet accessible arguments about its implications. Lifecycles is the first book to both describe the dynamics of rebirth and explore the ramifications of adopting a reincarnationist perspective. The book begins with a masterful synthesis of recent findings from consciousness research and near-death studies. It includes the work of such eminent therapists and scholars as Stanislav Grof and Dr. Ian Stevenson, and critically surveys the most compelling evidence for rebirth. Lifecycles emphasizes the lessons for self-awareness and spiritual growth inherent in a reincarnationist world view, showing us how we can reconnect with the order, intelligence, and beauty of the universe around us.

This book by Christopher Bache is really a must read for anyone interested in the possibility of Past Lives.

It is written in an objective scholarly manner which is rigorous in detail yet incredibly readable.

He doesn't try to sell you on any point of view, he presents the evidence (which is quite compelling) and also explains rebirth in terms both Spiritual as well as Psychological.

I originally bought this book many years ago after hearing the last part of an interview w/ Christopher Bache on the radio. I was so blown away by his honesty and integrity regarding the subject that I ordered the book immediately.

The book far exceeded my expectations in every way.

Unlike Gary Zukav's book "Seat of the Soul" which is interesting but doesn't give the reader any data in which to understand where he bases his statements, "Lifecycles" is written from a scholarly perspective with loads of carefully scrutinized documentation.

It's approach is "here is the data (and it's very substantial), here are various points of view regarding rebirth throughout history (including discussions of karma), you are left to then come to your own conclusions based on the material presented.

Outstanding achievement and Highly recommended!

Lifecycles in review

This is an interesting, provocative and analytical book in that it attempts both a subjective and an objective assessment of the human condition with the added dimension of multiple reincarnating threads. The work makes a fair fist of reviewing some of the religious views on the matter and does quite well at that without covering some of the finer points of structure as elaborated in some of the Upanishads (see: Kenopanishad by Swami Chinmayananda). The individual life-experience examples provided are informative and persuasive. A considerable space is devoted to analyzing elements such as the meaning of "soul age" and reincarnation in relation to Christianity. In the latter case the author places less emphasis on the elements of political control utilized in the rejection of reincarnation by modern Christianity than might otherwise be warranted in an assessment that could be described as "Wouldn't it be nice if Christianity recognized reincarnation?" The discussion of Karma omits to point out that "group Karma" might be seen to play a long-wave role in why this is simply not the case.

In his postscript the author asks what the individual prophets and holy ones have added if the totality of cyclic manifestation has been ongoing (at the individual level) since the earliest of times. His conclusion is that they have added awareness and empowerment. The Hindu faith as stated by Swami Chinmayananda goes a step further and asserts that the totality of all minds/intellects in the visible world is the total conception of god (the god-principle). The individual avatars or incarnations are merely manifestations of the god-principle (however great or small they may seem).

There are two further features of the book, which are worth mentioning. The first is that a credible attempt has been made to "round out" the story of reincarnation by thoroughly integrating an often overlooked portion of the story. This concerns our life the bardo. (This is further carried over in the author's latest book "Dark Night Early Dawn" in an interesting chapter devoted to the insights of Robert Monroe). The title, Lifecycles, apparently relates to the emphasis placed on a rounded account of all the phases of the soul's cyclic development. The second resides in the way in which the author underlines that karma is a living energetic net connecting us to a living universe that continuously accumulates information and, when sufficient energy is amassed, responds to our choices by bringing about new configurations and opportunities in our lives.The Journey To Enlightenment

This is hands-down the most complete presentation of this body of information I've found. It reviews major case studies from key past-life regressionists and reincarnation researchers such as Michael Newton and Ian Stevenson. It also presents data from religions that teach the doctrine of reincarnation. It does a good job of demonstrating that people share a number of common types of experiences, especially when subjected to what is termed "past-life regression."

Where it falls short is it does not appear to consider Ockham's Razor, or the idea that the simplest plausible explanation is the most likely. The author seems to be trying to say he's just presenting the evidence and the reader should be the judge. However, he seems almost to be encouraging the reader to accept reincarnation as the most likely explanation. The unspoken conclusion: Since people remember deceased people's thoughts, those remembering must be reincarnations of the deceased people. The author and those studied do not even entertain competing plausible explanations. One area to examine is the fact that psychics also reportedly receive deceased people's thoughts, but they don't believe they are reincarnations of those people.

This book is useful as a review of case study research conducted in this area using certain practices. I would caution against adopting the unspoken conclusion, that the data support the reincarnation hypothesis. The data also support competing, simpler, plausible explanations that need to be addressed. The book could be useful as a departure point for investigating other plausible explanations.

This is a well-researched, clearly written, and thoughtful treatment of reincarnation and karma. Bache does a very good job of bridging pithy esoteric concepts to an open-minded lay reader.

Very grounded incredibly well researched and written book that opens our awareness to the reality of reincarnation

This is an excellent presentation on the subject, and it is directed toward the logically trained Western mind. It is the best work on reincarnation that I have read. I recommend it highly!

This book was insightful and thought-provoking. Perfect for someone newly interested in reincarnation and rebirth. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and highlighted and underlined multiple passages.
I thought this was an easy book for anyone to read. It gave lots of case histories and information for consideration.
