Some scientists have been interested in uncovering evidence suggesting that past life memories are indeed real. Dr. Jim B. Tucker and his predecessor, Dr. Ian Stephenson, both at the University of Virginia have together investigated thousands of such cases in four decades of research.
Of particular interest to Dr. Tucker are past life memories of children, and he will be talking about some of the most astounding and evidential cases. These accounts continue to be documented throughout the globe, and represent strong evidence that consciousness survives physical death.
If you would like to learn what scientists look for in reincarnation cases, or perhaps you or someone that you know appear to have memories of a past life, you will not want to miss this stellar presentation!

You wonder if medical doctors have uncovered evidence of past lives
Dr. Tucker was born and raised in North Carolina. He attended the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a BA degree in psychology in 1982, followed by a Medical Degree four years later. He then received training in general psychiatry and child psychiatry at the University of Virginia. After he completed his training, he stayed in Charlottesville and began a successful private practice in psychiatry.
Dr. Tucker, who was raised Southern Baptist, had never seriously considered the possibility of past lives before reading one of Dr. Stevenson’s book. After learning about the work, he became intrigued both by the children’s reports of past-life memories and by the prospect of studying them using an objective, scientific approach. He contacted the Division and in 1999 began working there half-time. A year later, he gave up his private practice completely to work at the university. He has now published two books and numerous papers in scientific journals. He has spoken before both scientific and general audiences and has made a number of television appearances, including Good Morning America, Larry King Live, and CBS Sunday Morning.
The scientific investigation of children’s memories of past lives offers significant evidence that consciousness survives physical death. Dr. Tucker’s books, "Life Before Life" and "Return to Life" are fascinating looks at forty year’s worth of evidence.
