Attraverso le loro storie a volte tragiche, spesso colpevolizzanti, scopriamo un’altra sfaccettatura della Vita: i limiti di quello che conosciamo si allontanano, e ci si aprono prospettive fin qui sconosciute...
Anne Givaudan, autrice o coautrice di 30 libri tradotti in molti paesi, ha fatto della sua capacità di uscire dal corpo un metodo di lavoro e di inchiesta, affrontando da quel punto di vista straordinario i temi più svariati. Quando ha iniziato a scrivere, parole come “viaggio astrale”, “uscita dal corpo” e “mondi del dopo-vita” erano espressioni esoteriche, riservate a pochi. Anne Givaudan ha avuto il merito di divulgare questi argomenti e di descrivere universi di cui forse avevamo il presentimento senza osare crederci. Si definisce “una reporter dai mondi sottili”, oltre advert essere una terapeuta dell’anima e del corpo. Parla di queste altre dimensioni, dell’aldilà o della vita su altri pianeti come qualcosa di ovvio, perché story è according to lei, in base alla sua esperienza.
