The Spirits of Amoskeag: The Wounded Heroes of the Manchester Mills by Lois A. Hermann with Peter Paulson

Reviewed by Albert J. Marotta MA, CHT
In IJRT Issue 28, 2016


This book is a historical expose of the late 16th and 17th century manufacturing and abusive child labor practices in the New England weaving mills. It is a 21st century promise to tell this story, with the effective use of transpersonal hypnotic regression in the research needed to validate their stories, and keep that promise.

Lois Hermann’s book is well-documented dynamic historical adventure showing a dark side of humanity and big business. It is emotional, poignant, and fast paced. Hypnotic regression techniques are used to access earth bound spirit testimony. The spiritual dimensions do not detract or overshadow the storyline but rather add a deeper dimension to her work. From a therapeutic perspective, there is enough technique given, that with intensive study and careful diligence, effective spirit releasement can be achieved by a competent regression therapist.

The Spirits of Amoskeag is a fascinating true adventure well worth the effort of the avid reader, historian, spiritual enthusiast, and therapist. Research is ongoing, seeking the ultimate goal of greater details and accurate documentation. Well done Lois and Peter.
