Far From This Land: A Memoir About Evolution, Love, and the Afterlife

By: Michael Gellert


11 in stock

SKU: 9780892541966 Categories: ,


This book is inspired by the author’s dreams and visionary experiences in response to brain surgery. Unfolding as a dialogue between different parts of his personality, its story is told from the perspective of an alter ego, a skeptical part of him that could not believe and accept these astonishing dreams and visions. Throughout his story, he is resistant to accepting his near-death experience―an extraordinary one by most standards. He has to fight his way to embracing, reluctantly, the implications this experience has for his personal development as well as his understanding of human evolution. The book explores such topics as the workings of the unconscious mind (dreams, visions, and paranormal phenomena); the evolution of consciousness and of our planet; and the psychological and spiritual dimension of climate change. Though also about the afterlife, it has profound implications for our everyday lives.
