Introduction to AREI by R. Craig Hogan, PhD, President
Documented Proof of the Life After This Life
AREI has published the results of its five-years of research to identify the most compelling evidence of life after death. The result is the report published in the book Best Evidence Beyond a Reasonable Doubt You Will Never Die (Greater Reality Publications, October 31, 2021).
The evidence focuses narrowly on verified evidence from reliable sources that people whose bodies have died have communicated to people on earth who knew them well. The only evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that humans survive bodily death is communication from people whose bodies have died that is received and understood by individuals still on earth who certify without doubt that the communication is from the person they knew.
You Can Connect with Your Loved Ones Living in the Afterlife
You can communicate with your loved ones in the afterlife. They are available and anxious to communicate with you. There are 16 proven methods people are using with great success today. One method is 98% successful. We invite you to look at the methods to see which ones will be suitable to you. Included are links to lists of qualified mediums.
We also invite you to ask us questions you have about the afterlife or afterlife communication.
Four Books Explaining Who We Are in Eternity
Four books by R. Craig Hogan, PhD, president of the Afterlife Research and Education Institute, Inc., together explain what we know today about the nature of reality, our purpose in this life, and what happens when we leave this life. The books contain explanations of these six important truths:
- Your Mind is not produced by or contained in your brain. Your Mind doesn’t need a body or a brain.
- Your Mind is an individual manifestation of the Universal Mind all people are part of—we are all one Mind.
- Our one Universal Mind creates the world we live in
- Our Individual Minds continue to live after the body ceases to function.
- There is nothing but Mind and experiences. We experience the world, but the world does not exist outside of our Minds and experiences.
- We have a purpose in Earth School and can live in love, joy, and peace while we fulfill our purpose.
The publisher is Greater Reality Publications, a subsidiary of the Afterlife Research and Education Institute, Inc.
Reasons for What Happens in Your Life & Your Afterlife: From Speakers in the Afterlife explains what happens to a person through the major stages: deciding to enter Earth School, learning to succeed in Earth School, growing in love, compassion, and understanding, and living in the life after the Earth School life.
Psychotherapist-Guided Afterlife Connections
Grief therapy is acknowledged to be ineffective in having an impact on the person’s grief. However, three forms of grief therapy are dramatically effective in reducing grief and teaching the client about the nature of life in the next life and their place in eternity. The three are helping clients have afterlife communication for the people they love who have transitioned to the next life.
Jane Bissler, PhD
Loving Hearts Connections
The psychoanalyst conducts sessions using free online video-conferencing. They last for approximately 90 minutes. After the psychotherapist performs the procedure, she teaches participants how to use it on their own to continue having connections. The procedure is based on scientific research and known psychotherapeutic methods. The first test on the protocol showed that 17 of 18 participants had successful personal connections that they testified were very real and heartfelt to them.

Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy
The method helps clients communicate with loved ones for whom they are grieving. The psychotherapist uses bilateral stimulation to help the client enter a state in which afterlife communications occur. It is successful with 98% of the clients who experience it, and the clients’ grief reduces from high scores of 10 and 10 plus plus plus on a 10-point score for the disturbance of thoughts about the deceased loved one to 0, 1, or 2 in a single session.
Allan Botkin, PsyD
Induced After-Death Communication
This procedure uses eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to bring the client into a state of mind to have the afterlife connection. It requires a state psychotherapy license and EMDR certification. Success in the early studies was 70% of clients having an afterlife connection. Success in one more recent study was 75% of clients.
AREI YouTube Videos
You Will Never Die ~ Evidence from Instrumental Transcommunication
People living in the next life are communicating to loved ones living on earth using recordings, television, and radio. This video presents the recordings by two of the primary researchers in the field. The clear, articulate voices are proof you will never die.
The Brain Is Superfluous
The mind functions without the brain, so the brain is just part of the scenery of the Earth realm. People do fine with no brain. This video provides the proof that people function perfectly well with little or no brain. That results in the conclusion that brain is superfluous.
How to Record Voices of People in the Afterlife
In this video, Sheri walks you through the steps necessary to set up your computer to record EVPs. Sheri believes that it is possible for anyone who is coming from a place of sincerity to record voices using the same method she is using, which is based on Sonia Rinaldi’s work.

Evidence Beyond a Reasonable Doubt You Will Never Die
R. Craig Hogan, PhD
This book contains the compelling evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that you will live on after your body dies. It includes transcripts of people speaking from the life after this life and links to the audio recordings so you can listen yourself. It includes additional accounts of afterlife communication that are compelling because they reveal the person in spirit is alive.
Reasons for What Happens to You In Your Life and Your Afterlife
R. Craig Hogan, PhD
This book contains 570 citations, most of which are statements from people living in the life after this life, telling us the reasons for what happens to us in our life and our afterlife. This book explains why we have chosen the life we are living, what our purpose is in this life, how we can live in love, peace, and joy, what happens at the transition from this life, and what life is like in the realm we all enter after leaving earth.
Your Eternal Self: Science Discovers the Afterlife
R. Craig Hogan, PhD
Read this book with an open mind and you will be convinced by the scientific evidence of the life after this life. This book challenges the assumptions most of us learned as we grew up. If you follow the evidence keeping an open mind, you will come to the same conclusion a vast body of scientists, philosophers, theologians, researchers, and other scholars have come to today: we are spiritual beings having a temporary physical experience.
There Is Nothing but Mind and Experiences
R. Craig Hogan, PhD
Everything in the physical world is made out of atoms. Atoms are made out of energy. And energy is made out of consciousness. This book shows what reality is made of, how we participate in creating this reality, and how we can create a reality full of love, peace, and joy. Matter and energy do not create Mind. Mind creates matter and energy.

AREI’s Leading Role in the Consciousness Revolution
AREI’s support for afterlife and afterlife communication researchers and educators is playing a leading role in the consciousness revolution. Humanity is coming to realize our consciousness is eternal, not destined to die with the body. And scientists and philosophers are coming to realize that consciousness is the basic source of all matter, energy, and forces.
The Hindu god Shiva is portrayed standing on the back of an Asur demon called Apasmara, representing ignorance. Shiva stands on Apasmara to keep the demon from overwhelming humanity with ignorance. But Shiva knows not to kill Apasmara, because there must be a balance of knowledge and ignorance in the world. The message is that we live in a world full of ignorance, but we are allowed to learn the secrets life. We are not intended to be ignorant. All we must do is avail ourselves of the knowledge freely given to us. The searching, learning, and discovering we involve ourselves in are the plan for our lives.

Get Answers to Your Questions
AREI’s mission is to help humankind learn we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, we can communicate assuredly with loved ones in the next realm of life, there is no need to fear the normal life transition called death, and we should live together in peace, love, and joy. To achieve that mission, we are making available resources that will answer your questions about the afterlife, your loved ones living there, how to communicate with them, and what you can expect at your transition. AREI offers many avenues to explore the afterlife – you can ask us a question, join a community group, explore our research, or even join us at our 2019 Soul Summit!
Online Physical Mediumship Experimental Group
The Zoom physical mediumship circle meets online. Each member darkens the room in his or her home or office and we all join together in singing to raise the vibration. That is the protocol physical mediumship circles follow when meeting in a physical location. We invite anyone to join in to see what happens for you and the circle. We anticipate that these online circles may help physical and trance mediums emerge so the online circle produces phenomena or the mediums can form their own circles in their location.
The circle meetings are available to members. We invite you to join. We have downloads of the session recordings for circle members to listen to and watch. The videos are at this link: Zoom circle recordings.
