This week I am talking to Jacob Cooper about his NDE and his book ‘Life After Breath: How a Brush with Fatality Gave Me a Glimpse of Immortality’.
In Life After Breath, Jacob’s near-death experience as a child ripped an opening between him and the spirit world. He lived, but was forever changed. As he grew, darkness and light led him on a roller coaster ride of turmoil, loss, discovery, and renewal. He now shares this mystical journey with those brave enough to explore the “other side,” understand the beings there, and hear the wisdom gleaned. He faces the question of the hereafter, looks at life lessons, and examines what a connected awareness can mean to the human experience.
Jacob holds a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Jacob is also a Certified Reiki Master, Certified Hypnotherapist, and specializes in Past Life Regression Therapy. As a psychotherapist, Jacob works with individuals, groups, and families in managing emotional barriers, promoting improved wellness, and resiliency. Jacob incorporates mindfulness and a spiritual approach to focus on the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. In effect, this teaches individuals how to improve their cognitive processing and shift their perspectives.
Based on his near-death experience and past life regressions, Jacob shares insight about the mystery of life on the other side of the veil. In addition to peace and euphoria in the afterlife, we also experience these feelings in the physical world; there is so much more to live for, as we are much more resilient than we imagine. Jacob’s experience also provides others with the opportunity to experience past-life memories, assisting in the development of self-awareness and finding meaning in their experiences.
Jacob provides meditation and mindfulness seminars to individuals and groups diagnosed with cancer, with developmental disabilities, and the aged population. Jacob has presented at the Edgar Cayce Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE), the International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS), spiritual centers, universities throughout the world, and public libraries. Jacob’s seminars promote healing for those grieving and those who seek to understand continuity of consciousness beyond the physical body, and for those with anxiety associated with the fear of life after death. He is the author of “Life After Breath” a memoir on his near-death experience (NDE) published by Waterside Productions.
