IONS OriginalLogo Blue@300x 100Initiated by Prof. Ian Stevenson at the University of Virginia in the 1960s and continuing to the present, this research project reveals riveting findings which have profound implications for our understanding of memory and the nature of human existence.  

In investigating more than 2,500 individuals from around the world, researchers have uncovered many cases which identified a deceased person whose life story matches the details given by the child. Common features of these cases include: a child speaking of a past life at a very early age; behaviours that appear connected to a past life, such as phobias related to the mode of death; and birthmarks or birth defects that correspond to wounds of the deceased person.   

The presentation will include a review of the decades of research as well as the details of recent American cases.
