More About the Author
Elizabeth Carman is a philosopher-psychologist, pre-birth researcher, author, and former social worker. After graduation from Michigan State University with a degree in psychology, Elizabeth did social service work with low income, minority families, and was a caseworker in adoption and foster care. Elizabeth learned first-hand that traditional methods were ineffective for dealing with the deeper problems of life. Problems are like a room filled with darkness and the solution is not looking for the source of the darkness, but bringing in the light. Then the darkness is no longer found. Ultimately, the answers lie inside of each of us.
Consequently, Elizabeth shifted gears from the field of social service to spiritual service. At this point today, she has spent more than forty-five years studying spiritual disciplines and researching consciousness, including participating in long-term meditation retreats in North America, Europe, and Asia. Elizabeth has taught meditation workshops and served on university faculty helping people work on the core of their existence and expand their consciousness as a way to leading a happier life.
Elizabeth's journey into researching pre-birth experiences began in 1989 with a focus on how women can prepare for a more elevated experience on the way to motherhood, and, at the same time, give birth to happy, smiling babies right from the first breath. Through interviews with mothers, Elizabeth explored the link between higher consciousness and motherhood/childbirth.
Elizabeth interviewed mothers who took time out for pre-conception health care, detoxification, meditation, exercise, before conceiving a child. Consequently some mothers transcended pain and gave birth in ecstasy. Due to their heightened sensitivity, mothers also met future children in dreams and telepathic visions. Following birth, some children recalled their birth, womb-time, conception, and even life before conception. Mothers also shared their natural memories of their soul's journey into this life.
In their newest book, Cosmic Cradle: Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth, Elizabeth Carman, PhD, together with her husband, Neil Carman, PhD, have synthesized forty-five years' worth of research, historical accounts, and firsthand natural experiences of the pre-birth realm.
