In 1980 Dr Brian Weiss, who was the head of the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, began treating a young woman for anxiety. Under hypnosis the woman begins to tell Dr Weiss experiences she had had that could only come from past lives. The book Many Lives Many Masters is a story about the woman’s treatment and how it affected both the client and Dr Weiss. The stories that the client tells, and Dr Weiss comments give us a beginning understanding of reincarnation.
