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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read a large number of books on Astral Projection and this one was completely different for its range of topics. The author sent out a survey and received first-hand accounts from 16,000 people who have had various degrees of out-of-body experiences from accidental to controlled, from enjoyable to unwelcome. Buhlman lets the stories speak for themselves, and categorizes the experiences by subject: meetings and messages beyond the body, childhood OBEs, combat- and trauma-induced experiences and transformational experiences. Buhlman also discusses what can be expected from an OBE and what benefits there are.

Chapter 6 was unique in the entire literature of OBEs: could alien abductions be unexpected out-of-body experiences? Buhlman does a masterful job of analyzing the reported experiences of alien abductees and drawing parallels to the sensations of OBEs.

His "Brief History" of OBEs is an eye-opening re-examination of descriptions of the mystical experience, synthesizing historical and biblical accounts from the Egyptians through the Greeks and Tibetans, to the Christian and Sufi mystics, including Swedenborg, Yogis, Aborigines, Native Americans and Shamans. It's all too brief, serving to point the way for the reader to research further, but does argue for the ubiquitous OBE in our religions and spiritual paths.

Chapter 8, "A New Vision of Death and Dying," is another unique feature of this book in the Astral Travel library. OBEs are not dealt with as simply enjoyable anomalies in consciousness, but as life-changing spiritual experiences demanding a transformation of our definition of reality.

The "Art and Practice" section of the book deals specifically with the sensations the practitioner will feel when attempting to leave the body.

Format: Paperback
Secret Of The Soul is an excellent book, not only for those interested in out-of-body travel, but also anyone interested in the nature of the soul and the astral plane. Included are survey results from nearly 17,000 people from all walks of life who have had some form of out-of-body experiences. These fasinating excerpts make this book a wealth of information on astral travel and the unseen universe around us. Reading this book really encourages one to think about the nature of our reality, to question our physical limits and how we interact with physical world. There are numerous, effective exercises that the reader can use to push beyond their physical limits and initiate out-of-body travel Readers are guided not only to experience leaving the body, but also contacting guides and loved ones that have passed over. There are also informative guidelines for self-protection and how to overcome fears and challenges. This is a wonderful follow up to William Buhlman's first book, Adventures Beyond the Body, and is sure to delight and inform the reader, whether they are a novice at out-of-body experiences or a seasoned traveler.

William Buhlman's THE SECRET OF THE SOUL is an excellent sequel to his definitive book on out-of-body experiences, ADVENTURES BEYOND THE BODY. It gives purpose to seeking and having OBEs-- spiritual growth and development. Many spiritual seekers have had OBEs as part of the spiritual discipline they practice but they don't know how to use them for their spiritual growth. Bill Buhlman tell us how to have OBEs and then how to use them for our spiritual developement. With only a few phrases we can move to higher levels and encounter our soul and spirit guides. Buhlman takes the fear out of OBEs and gives us understanding and control. Through OBEs we have a direct path to spirtual exploration.

Format: Paperback
The Secret of the Soul is a 'must-read' if you are at all interested in answering the question: "If I'm more than my body, who am I?" Whether you are one of the 30% of people who have experienced an out-of-body adventure yourself or whether you simply wish to better understand the phenomenon and perhaps learn how to self-initiate this form of personal exploration, this book will entertain, inform and enlighten.
Written in a clear and concise fashion by William Buhlman, best-selling author of Adventures Beyond the Body, The Secret of the Soul presents details about the out-of-body experience (OBE) that have never before been presented. Based upon an international out-of-body survey that has elicited over 16,000 responses from 32 countries, The Secret of the Soul provides a convincing testimonial to the fact that OBEs are by no means relegated to the mystic but are indeed a natural phenomena available to all of us.
Survey data suggests that many people experience their first OBE during childhood, but all too often the adult world greets the child's revelations with disbelief and instruction about "the way things really are"-the physical world that is seen with the physical eyes only. Buhlman offers helpful advice to parents who are faced with a child who encounters visitation from unseen friends and loved ones, night terrors, or the paralysis and sounds that can accompany the "vibrational state" which often precedes an OBE.
