James Van Praagh

James Van Praagh is a world-famous medium renowned for conveying messages and conversations between the physical and spiritual realms.  He has appeared on numerous radio and television shows, and was the resident expert on NBC's The Other Side.  Mr. Van Praagh conducts lectures and specialized tours throughout the world, and is the author of several best-selling books.

Reaching to Heaven

Within each of us, writes Mr. Van Praagh, is a divine spark -- the soul -- that we forget about when we succumb to the conditioning and illusions of the material world.  To be fully alive, we must develop a "sense of soul," a strong connection to the spiritual core that is who we are.  In Reaching to Heaven (review or buy), Mr. Van Praagh explores the journey of the soul and offers insights from his work as a medium.

Healing Grief

In Healing Grief (review or buy), James Van Praagh warns against conforming our grief to what is expected as the "norm," and encourages each of us to grieve in our own way, and in our own time.  In the book, Mr. Van Praagh shares insightful spiritual messages from deceased loved ones, who shed new light on grief and loss.  These stories, along with the telling of his own personal experiences, assist us in viewing our losses as stepping-stones on our soul's evolving spiritual journey.

Talking to Heaven

Part spiritual memoir and part instructional guide, Talking to Heaven (review or buy) offers a powerful, inspirational message about the world beyond the physical.  Filled with hope and enlightenment about our spiritual future, Mr. Van Praagh shares moving stories of after-death communication based on his years as a medium.  "Anyone questioning life after death must read Talking to Heaven," writes Dannion Brinkley.  "It not only confirms a spiritual world, but gives inspiration to eliminate the fear of loss."
