Sunday, April 28th (2019), we had the honour and pleasure of interviewing Whitley Strieber for the second time.
Our talk centred predominantly around his latest book, The Afterlife Revolution. For those who don’t know, it’s a pretty darn heavy book: non-fiction, throwing your own beliefs into question and turmoil, emotional and soul-searching, and absolutely heart-wrenching at times. He has written both fiction and non-fiction, some of his books having been turned into movies (e.g. Communion, The Hunger, The Day After Tomorrow). The rawness and honesty that comes through in his non-fiction is truly intense at times, and I know for sure that his last book has made many-a-person weep while reading it.
He talks about his relationship with his wife, Anne. More importantly, though, he talks about their relationship *after* her death. That is, communication with someone in the apparent afterlife. It sounds unbelievable. I mean, I’m not at all surprised that many people think this sort of thing crazy. But give the man a minute to talk and explain, and just maybe, you might start aligning with his wavelength. For some people it happens immediately; for others, it takes a while: for the rest, it’ll never happen. All outcomes are fine. But if you would like to even just dip your toes into this subject and its possibilities, then I’d say that you have nothing to lose by starting to read this book. You may stop at any point you want.
We delve deeper than merely these surface questions, though. We inquire as to whether it is only us, humans, that are capable of experiencing love in this manner. Does love transcend our reality/physical Earthly existence? Why do some of us have the experience of apparent “otherworldly’” visitors? What of Out-Of-Body or Near-Death-Experiences? And, ratherly pertinently: should we fear death?
The love that exists between Whitley and Anne is palpable in his writing and speeches. His story, for both believers and non-believers, remains extraordinary and intense. His experiences give us hope, at the very least, and something to look forward to, at best.
We always value Whitley’s input on this subject-matter, and we hope you do too.
If you’d like to see Mr. Strieber in-person, amongst an amazing array of other speakers, then do consider attending this year’s Contact In The Desert conference, should it be something you can reasonably take time out for and travel to. Thus far, it hasn’t disappointed us yet.
