George Schwimmer PhD  


George Schwimmer, PhD, is an adventurer in inner spaces. He obtained extensive training in Past-Life Therapy from leading U.S. practitioners of the international Association for Past-Life Research and Therapy (APRT) and became the first person certified in Past-Life Therapy by APRT. He later was elected to APRT's board of directors for four years (serving as secretary and then a vice-president) and was APRT's newsletter editor for three years. Since 1982 he has helped individuals to remember their past lives and receive guidance, employing a process he calls Transformational Guidance,which utilizes a variety of techniques, including past-life regression, visualization healing, guidance from each person's higher self, past-life rescripting, and spirit releasement therapy.


He also was trained in the use of the inner senses and higher consciousness by Patricia Hayes at The Arthur Ford International Academy of Mediumship, which resulted in his doing spiritual past-life readings for five years, and obtained instruction in the utilization of altered states of consciousness at The Monroe Institutein Virginia, for which he was briefly an outreach trainer. He is a Usui Reiki Master, studiedchakra healing, and in recent years was trained in Peruvian shamanism by Dr. Alberto Villoldo and The Four Winds Society.


He has given lectures, seminars and workshops on Past-Life Therapy and Transformational Guidanceat conventions of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, the California Association for Counseling and Development, the Association for Past-Life Research and Therapies, Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, The Brain and Mind Symposium,and New Zealand's New Spirit Festival. He has held past-life recall workshops for the general public and has conducted professional training workshops in past-life therapy. He currently gives the Peruvian Q’ero Munay-Ki sacred rites in Santa Fe.


Dr. Schwimmer eventually realized that the purpose of his metaphysical trainings and experiences was to gather first-hand information to write and speak to those who were ready to learn about these states and processes, so that they would understand they really are spirits inhabiting bodies and that everyone can do these things. He has consequently written numerous metaphysical articles, which were published in A.R.E.’s Venture Inward, The Journal of Regression Therapy, The APRT Newsletter, The Journal of Religion and Psychical Research, Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship Newsletter, Link-Age, AHP Perspective, IONS: Noetic Sciences Review, and Whole Life Times. His first book, The Search For David , an account of his spiritual journey after the death of his  son, David, was published in 1996, received raves from readers and reviewers, and was republished in 2004. He published his second book, Adventures In Consciousness (see June 2006, and his third book—his son David’s writing, edited by Dr. Schwimmer— DAVID: leaves from the journal of a soul , was published November 2006 . He has also written metaphysically themed screenplays, including one about Edgar Cayce. He has directed, produced, and acted in numerous theatrical productions, taught theatre and directed at two colleges and a university, and worked in theatre for thirty years. He is listed in the 2009 edition of Who’s Who in America. He currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
