Dr. Edith Fiore’s latest book, Encounters, is a superb report on a highly controversial subject. Coming from a background of traditional psychotherapy, she discovered past-life therapy only a few years ago and wrote You Have Been Here Before, an excellent volume delineating the value of PLT as a therapeutic tool. Next, confronted by evidence of psychic attack in many of her clients, she wrote The Unquiet Dead, a fascinating and altogether plausible account of this universal phenomenon.
One might almost believe that Destiny had a hand on this courageous lady’s shoulder, knowing that she would share these discoveries regardless of how unorthodox or debatable they might be. When Dr. Fiore discovered that some of her clients were apparently having encounters with extraterrestrial beings, she again accepted the challenge, first investigating and then reporting her findings.
Encounters is a verbatim account, in dialogue, of 14 of the cases the author worked with in her office. Her selection is varied enough to give the reader a broad overview of the characteristics and purposes of the extraterrestrials. Her cases also represent a good cross section of the client population, with a balance of men and women, and for the most part, individuals with quite diversified emotional problems resulting from their encounters.
