Dr. Weiss's life changed forever when he took on a new patient named Catherine. "She was suffering from panic attacks, phobias, fears, nightmares," he says. "She had begun sleeping in a large closet in her apartment because of fear."
After a year of conventional psychiatric treatment with little progress, Dr. Weiss decided to try hypnosis, a therapy he'd used successfully before. Catherine was able to easily recall traumatic memories from her childhood. When he asked Catherine to go to the source of her pain, Dr. Weiss says he was shaken to his core—Catherine regressed back and started talking about living previous lives.
