Emmy Award-winning producer and New York Times bestselling author Lionel Friedberg has spent 50 years making films as diverse as full-length theatrical features and television documentaries. After growing up in South Africa during the troubled era of apartheid, he began his career during the dying days of colonialism in Central Africa.

Friedberg eventually settled in Los Angeles, where his work took him to the sound stages of Hollywood and to the most remote regions of the Earth. His career exposed him to the extraordinary wonders of our planet and brought him into close contact with many unforgettable personalities — from maverick scientists to politicians, from well-known entertainers to people who literally survived near-death experiences.

His life-long observations have taught him that life is far more complex and infinitely stranger than we can imagine. Example: when he was struck by an unexpected life-threatening illness, his efforts to find a way to save his life took him back to Africa, where he encountered the age-old rituals and powerful healing methods of African shaman. In his direct experience, their mysterious ways have much to teach us and are as relevant today as they were in ancient times.

Lionel Friedberg is the man who brought us television shows such as Ancient Mysteries, Mysteries of the Bible and Histories Mysteries — for the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and National Geographic. His latest book brings on an adventure into Shamanism, Near-Death experiences, interviews with the Dead, UFO encounters. .. and all manner of other strange “paranormal” (read “Hyperdimensional”) experiences in between ….
