Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Explore new worlds without booking a flight! In Adventures Beyond the Body, William Buhlman recounts his fascinating experiences with astral travel, connects this phenomenon with current cosmological theories, and suggests that we all have the capability to travel to parallel universes. Don't worry about getting lost--Adventures is filled with well mapped methods for finding your way out of your body and into other worlds. Control is Buhlman's mantra, specifically control over our fear of the unknown. He precisely addresses the common events that can occur during an out-of-body experience, taking the fear out of the journey, and allowing you to focus on living the adventure. --Brian Patterson

Review

"An intriguing guidebook for those who want to venture beyond the horizon of ordinary reality." -- --Raymond Moody, author of Life After Life

More About the Author

The author's four decades of extensive personal out-of-body explorations give him a unique and thought provoking insight into this subject. His first book, Adventures beyond the Body chronicles his personal spiritual journey of self-discovery through out-of-body travel, and provides the reader with the preparation and techniques that can be used for their own adventure.

For over a decade he has conducted an international out-of-body experience survey that includes over 16,000 participants from forty-two countries. The provocative results of this survey are presented in his book, The Secret of the Soul. This cutting edge book explores the unique opportunities for personal growth and profound spiritual awakenings that are experienced during out-of-body travel.

Over the past two decades William has developed an effective system to experience safe, self initiated out-of-body adventures. He conducts an in-depth six day workshop with the Monroe Institute titled, Out-of-Body Exploration Intensive. This unique workshop provides the steps, intention and techniques designed for controlled out-of-body exploration. Each participant will experience a comprehensive array of proven OBE methods including the target technique, inner motion, visualization, chakra and energy body activation. In addition, hypnotic, shamanic and early morning methods will be practiced. Information about the author's workshops is available at www.astralinfo.org.

As a certified hypnotherapist, William incorporates various methods in his workshops to explore the profound nature of out-of-body experiences and the benefits of accelerated personal development. Through lectures, workshops and his books the author teaches the preparation and techniques of astral projection and spiritual exploration.

The author brings a refreshing look to how we can use out-of-body experiences to explore our spiritual identity and enhance our intellectual and physical lives. William is best known for his ability to teach people how to have profound spiritual adventures through the use of out-of-body experiences. In addition, he has developed an extensive series of audio and video programs that are designed to expand awareness and assist in the exploration of consciousness. William has appeared on numerous television and radio shows worldwide.

William's books are currently available in twelve languages.

While I admire the writings of Robert Monroe immensely I have to admit that he may be a little confusing for beginners, who may not fully understand or appreciate his terminology, or find it a bit dry. Not so with William Buhlman's book, which details not only his fascinating experiences but does something that no other book I've ever read on this subject has done, which is to explain this incredible experience scientifically by drawing comparisons to quantum physics. At first I thought this would be confusing, and perhaps a bit boring, but to my surprise I found it not only insightful, but downright fascinating. Buhlman has a great talent for taking a difficult and hard-to-understand topic and bringing it down to earth.
In my opnion, not only the best INSTRUCTIONAL book on the subject, but the best BOOK on the subject. Period!

Being interested in the occult, life after death and related matters for years, and after wasting much time (and money) on at least a dozen other books about OOBE's, I finally found this brilliant work. Buhlman's descriptions are so easy to read....I felt as if one of my friends was sitting there teaching the subject to me, totally unlike many of the other pretentious, self-absorbed works that are available.
You don't have to read the entire book to know that Buhlman is correct. Many of the initial phases of an OOBE will be so familiar to experiences that most people have already had that your doubts will be quickly dispelled.
I cannot speak too highly of this book, and I can guarantee you that, if you follow the methods listed, this book will have a more profound effect upon you than anything else you've ever read.

I bought this book because I was interested in the subject and it was published by HarperCollins... Most OBE books are filled with mumbo jumbo and panty waste New Age B.S... This book had exercises that read like a pilot's instruction manual... I tried a few just before I went to sleep for about two weeks every night... Low and behold I woke up in the dream state, climbed out of my body and walked around my apartment!.. If you don't believe it buy the book and try it yourself you skeptical stick in the mud... I only did it twice but it was enough to make me realize there is more going on than what we puny mortals may imagine... I actually got a little spooked and quit the exercises... I thought I could be playing around with occult powers I wasn't prepared for... The Tibetans claim you need a guru to initiate you into this kind of thing... Be careful... Read this book at your own risk...

Now I am reading two books on astral projection "ASTRAL DYNAMICS" by Robert Bruce and "ADVENTURES BEYOND THE BODY" by William Buhlman.
I find them quite helpful because yesterday I had my first out-of-body experience (OBE).

Every time before I go to bed, I relax and do some exercises from the books. But it never helped me leave my body... Till yesterday morning when I waked up and felt as some inner part of me along with my consciousness started to slide off my body as a glove from a hand. I soared over my bed and realized that I could see nothing.

I said to myself, "I want to see!" and suddenly everything became
clear and bright. I was in my room but it had some minor difference from my real room. (The books say it could be one of those astral
words which is close to our world).

I flied up to the window, looked around and then decided to come
back in my body because the authors do not recommend to do long
trips in the first OBE. So I flied up to my body, thinking of it, and returned back.

It was not a dream or lucid dreaming. I know the difference.
But it also did not look like a real life experience. I am still stumped
for an answer about the true nature of my experience. Though it was
interesting.

I have read a couple of other books about OBE/astral projection but to me, the most informative and helpful were "ASTRAL DYNAMICS" and
"ADVENTURES BEYOND THE BODY."

If it worked for me, it can work for you. Just be positive, do the
exercises and sooner or later you will have your first OBE. Though
ask yourself first if you really need it.

(I am not from an English speaking country, so please excuse my poor English).

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I wanted to read a book that would teach me how to experience out-of-body travel. Instead I found a completely different teaching.
Buhlam does give (I think) very good ways to induce astral projection. However, if you're expecting a step-by-step course, this is not where you will find it. Most of the work will have to be done by yourself. But this is only a matter of motivation and responsibility. So this comment should not seen as an argument against reading the book. The big surprise for me was in the multiple journal entries that Buhlman shares with us. I found them fascinating! They make up an adventure novel all by themselves. I might also define them as a roadmap to the astral dimensions.
We all are looking for teachings in the books we read, and hopefully those teachings allow us to take small steps toward wisdom. In this perspective, I am convinced that there is the right time for every book we read. So I will refrain from writing something like 'you must read this book'. You must make up your own mind. But if you feel ready for the kind of teachings I just described, then don't hesitate.
