Publisher's Summary

Dr. Brian Weiss is a highly respected psychiatrist from the mainstream of the medical establishment. Catherine is one of his most difficult cases, a 27-year-old woman racked by phobias and anxieties. In the course of Catherine's treatment, Dr. Weiss makes a startling discovery. Under hypnosis, she recollects, in vivid detail, events from past lives ranging from the prehistoric times and ancient Egypt to the 20th century and the fires of World War II. Encouraging Catherine to relive her most painful experiences, even her moments of death, Dr. Weiss steers her toward recovery, while his own life is dramatically changed forever.

In Many Lives, Many Masters, Dr. Weiss tells the true story of Catherine, her many existences, her remarkable therapy sessions, and the vision she revealed of the human mind and soul.

Parts were good

I thought what Kathryn had to say was fascinating about her passed lives. Then what she said from the masters. I got a few ah’s. I would have like it to be more about what she said and less about the doctors experience. I also can’t help but feel that Dr. Weiss exploited Kathryn for his own selfish needs. She was his patient and he only wanted to hear what her past lives were then got board and then only wanted to hear from the in between, masters. I also found him very narcissistic the way he talked about this new info like he was the greatest healer in his field. The way he talked about it was off putting. I just would have love more about Kathryn and her story. I’m putting aside the things I don’t like about the author and choose to focus on her. In the end I’m happy she’s doing much better and she got out of the sessions what she hoped she would. Healing her fears.

Spiritually Fulfilling

I have found this book to be beautifully written, and performed. The story shows the depths of this world that we most seem to disregard. It is through stories like this, that remind us all that we all have a path in life, and that we all can strive to just be ourselves, live for the moment, and enjoy life.

It’s okay

Hi there.

This book was recommended by a guest on a podcast I listen to as a transformative book. I found it to be okay, the narrators were great. I found it a little short and only goes into one persons experience. Would have loved to hear multiple experiences.

Abridged!

Very frustrating that these abridged audiobooks are not advertised as such. Some titles on audible say they are but others don’t which irritates me to no end. This is not the complete book! I don’t want to listen to selective parts of a book, I want to listen to it as it was written and designed to be read... start to finish. Call me crazy.

it's incomplete!!

Has Many Lives, Many Masters turned you off from other books in this genre?

it turned me off because it was read edited. the original text is 16 chapters long, I even tried to read the original book to follow the audio...impossible! the audio skips many paragraphs and chapters.

How could the performance have been better?

read the whole book! you charge me more than the paperback? the decent thing would be to read it all

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

it is a really good book, only amputated!

Where it all started for me

I saw Dr.Weiss on the Ophra show a number of years ago.. I found him to be very believable, honest, and down to earth.. Listening to him was like hearing things I'd always believed in, but never said out loud because I never knew anyone else who believed these things..

I immediatly ordered this book and read it, which led me his other books, and then on to many, many other books on the subject, as well as other spiritual books and meditations.

Dr. Weiss narrates this book and I simply love the man's voice. He's kind, understanding and easy to listen to, not to mention the subject matter is fascinating.

This is his first book, and written about a patient he had who came in for therapy because she had so many fears in life.. After many, many sessions that did not seem to be helping, he hypnotised her, and she started talking about past lives... He was very doubtful until, through her, he was given a message about his father and a son who had passed away in infancy, things no one could have known..

I've always been a person searching for answers and not able to just take someone else's truth and make it my own.. It's nice to have books like these to help expand your mind and break down the walls of the boxes people end up in...

If you are on a spiritual journey, or just beginning to ask yourself questions about what really happens after death, this is a great place to start.

Stimulating and Thought Provoking

I watched Dr. Brian Weiss on the most recent Oprah show with Dr. Oz on past regression and hypnosis. I wanted to understand and know more about Dr. Weiss and this audio delivered. This audiobook is the beginning story on how it all began and the revelations that he and his patient found in their sessions. For two true skeptical doctors and Oprah to be changed by this information is worth a listen. If anything, it really makes you "think" about life and lives you might have lived and how they might be effecting you now. Riveting to ponder.

horrible abridged version of a wonderful book.

the guts have been ripped out of this inspiring story, and Dr. Weiss, the author, is the narrator. why would he agree to such a travesty?

I selected this book to listen while cleaning house. Didn't get to the cleaning. Sat quietly and soaked in the message. Life-changing.

I always knew...

For 35 yrs. as a pastor’s daughter I knew there was something more God wanted from us. I stumbled upon this book and it has changed my life... I can't possibly put into words how life changing this has been for me. I will never look at life the same again. It led me to so many answers I have spent my whole life looking for. It made me look at all the hurtful, painful things in my past as a blessing I never in a million years expected so much healing from one book. I shared this with everyone in my family, all my friends, co-workers.. I just gave it to them and let them listen to it.

I feel as if I couldn't possibly do it justice with just the words in this review. I wish everyone in this world could feel the peace I feel in my life right now.

Get this book!!! It will be the greatest one hour and twenty eight minutes of your life. I personally listened to it around fourteen times to date.

God Bless you and your family Mr. Weiss and thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this with me and my family. Because, of you our life will never be the same.

Thank GOD!! and Bless YOU!!!

Book versus Audio Book

When I purchased this Audiobook it was about 6 or 7 hours long, I absolutely loved it. Somehow it got cut short to about 1.5 hrs. SO for that reason I prefer the book now, even tho this was my most favorite Audiobook and I am actually very disappointed that someone felt it was ok to cut out at least 5 hrs. However the story is amazing and I recommend this to anyone, as it will change your life.

Many Lives, Many Masters

If you're curious about past lives or life after death, this book is a good choice.

The author, Brian Weiss, M.D. is as conservative as they come. A graduate of Columbia University with an M.D. from Yale University school of Medicine, he has taught at many universities. Dr. Weiss was the chairman of the Department Of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center and has authored numerous scientific papers. He's not the sort of fellow you'd expected to cure your ills by regressing you to a past life.

Dr. Weiss risked his professional standing - and perhaps his career- by publishing his accounts of these experiences. He believes in reincarnation and I believe him. I had an opportunity to interview Dr. Weiss for a television series and found him and his credentials to be authentic. I highly recommend "Many Lives, Many Masters" as well as his other books.
