Reincarnation Research Mission Statement


Understanding Past Lives & Promoting the Positive Societal Change Evidence of Reincarnation Can Bring

Anne Frank | Barbro Karlen Past Life CaseThe mission of Reincarnation Research is to promote reincarnation research, disseminate evidence of reincarnation and to enact the positive social change that evidence of past lives can bring.

Independently researched reincarnation cases, in particular those published by the late Ian Stevenson, MD of the University of Virginia, in aggregate, provide proof of reincarnation. Dr. Stevenson’s research focused on children who spontaneously had past life memories that could be factually verified.

Significantly, Jim Tucker, MD, a psychiatrist who has taken over for Dr. Stevenson at the University of Virginia, has stated on US national television that sufficient evidence now exists to conclude that reincarnation exists. Dr. Tucker made this statement when he appeared on TV with James Leininger after the James Huston Jr. | James Leininger case was aired on ABC Primetime in 2005.

Evidence of reincarnation shows that religion, nationality and ethnic affiliation can change from one incarnation to another. Most conflicts and wars are based on differences in these affiliations and evidence of reincarnation can mitigate conflicts based on differences in these markers of identity.

Reincarnation Cases with Change of Religion, Nationality and Ethnic Affiliation

To have a positive impact, key cases that together provide proof of reincarnation must be available to people of diverse cultures. We are now seeking funding for the translation of key reincarnation cases and in particular, past lives cases researched by Ian Stevenson, MD.

Ian Stevenson wrote in an academic style, as his target audience was fellow scientists. On the Reincarnation Research web site, synopses of his past lives cases are presented as children’s past life or reincarnation stories to make them accessible to all.

A template for the translation of key cases is provided on the page entitled Principles of Reincarnation, with the associated 23 independently researched cases that are cited on that page.
