The Roads of Lives: Essays on Regression Therapy by Pavel Gyngazov

Reviewed by David Graham, CRT
In IJRT Issue 27, 2015

In many ways this is an unusual and interesting book that offers insight into past life exploration. Indeed, Pavel Gyngazov learned about his profession in a very unusual and individual way, working alone in Siberia. His work as a regression therapist, researcher and sexologist led him to develop his own approach and techniques through his practice, and this book represents many of his findings. His approach is designed to help his clients overcome their “internal chatter,” thus becoming able to facilitate their journey to find the source of their issues within their past. While many of his contemporaries help clients to access their human past lives that refer to their current life issues, his technique appears to open the person’s memory to include other experiences.

Less than half of his clients went to human lives (38%). Another 26% went to animal lives, and 14% to extra-terrestrial lives.
Others visited lives as energy beings, insects, plants, birds, fish, and nonorganic existences. His clients were able to access the particular characteristics of each existence and relate them to characteristics of their life today. Their stories are told by transcripts of the actual sessions which give the reader an insight into the dialogue that arises during a regression session between a client-who may be focused on events that occurred hundreds or even thousands of years ago— and the therapist, sitting alongside the person in the therapy room. The clients were able to give very descriptive accounts of how it feels to be a bird, a stone, an alien, etc., and this seems to be how this book is different from others of the genre. How those experiences are relevant to a person’s current life is explained in the dialogue between client and therapist. In this way the book broadens research into the field of past life exploration; thus, I consider The Roads of Lives: Essays on Regression Therapy to be a valuable contribution.
