The Afterlife by Giulia Jeary Knap has the subtitle, Hereafter and Here at Hand, and an explanatory cover note: Three tried and tested methods to stay in touch with those who have gone before us. This goes a long way to explain what the book is about but does not expand on the wealth of guidance and information to be found in this relatively short volume. Part One of the book deals with extracts from numerous studies of near-death experiences, instances of clairvoyance and accounts of contacts with the deceased. In this section, the author presents a detailed picture of a world beyond our normal senses and vivid descriptions of life in the hereafter. There are numerous references to books, studies and research that have contributed to Ms Jeary Knap’s volume, backed up with links to websites and a bibliography for those who may wish to continue their research. In Part Two, the author goes on to describe several simple exercises which would put one in the frame of mind to make contact with departed loved ones – mostly gentle relaxation techniques that would not be beyond the reach of the general layperson. The author is fairly clear that she, along with most professional mediums, believes that any normal person can achieve contact with the deceased and her book sets out to explain how.

The Afterlife is a surprisingly clear and straightforward work on a subject often shrouded in mystery, prejudice and misconception. Considered taboo by many philosophies and religions, the majority of people shy away from contemplating or considering what (if anything) happens when we die. It is refreshing therefore to come across such a clear-eyed view of a subject which will concern every single one of us at some time or another. In this work, Ms Jeary Knap has managed to rekindle in me an interest which had laid dormant for many years and I am grateful for that. An excellent book on a difficult subject, which deftly avoids becoming creepy or mawkish. A great introduction for those with a casual interest and also a useful source for those looking for additional material or direction. I will certainly make a point of reading the author’s companion book: Looking Beyond the Fishbowl.”
