Book Review: Soul Sessions by Carson Gage

An engaging journey of love and spiritual awakening, Soul Sessions starts in current day Chicago, where Nick Dalton is a troubled yet highly successful Investment Banker with a gorgeous girlfriend and an extravagant lifestyle. Despite all his success, Nick falls into a deep depression after a life altering event. Just as it looks as though Nick’s life might end in suicide, enter Katrina DuMont, a gifted psychologist who is expert in both traditional and new age methods of treatment for depression. Together, using past-life regression techniques, they explore several of Nick’s prior incarnations, where he unwittingly discovers a beautiful woman who repeatedly appears as his lover and soul mate. To potentially reawaken his epic love affair, Nick is compelled to search for her in this lifetime. Thus begins an astonishing story of love and intrigue, where Nick stumbles across inconceivable answers to some of life's greatest mysteries ... and once again finds the course of his life altered.

When shopping for a book, whether online or in person, I glance at the cover, but it's usually the description that draws me in. I knew instantly when I read the description for Soul Sessions while book shopping online, that this book was one that I would love and be very interested in!

During the winter my favorite place to relax and read a book is on the couch, but now that's nice outside I love reading on my front porch with a mug of chai tea! Normally it's too cold this time of year to even sit on the porch, but we've been lucky with beautiful warm weather these last few weeks, so I had to take advantage and spend some reading time outside!

Soul Sessions is a really deep and thought provoking book. I've been interested in reading about things like past lives, soul mates, and past life regressions before, always non-fiction, but this novel turned out to be my favorite out of all of them so far! Nick is someone most of us can relate to at some point in our lives. Depression is so common with a friend or family member, or even yourself. I know I went through some rough times after a bad car accident I was in. Sometimes that rough patch in our lives happens, but then we can thrive and learn from that bad experience and be better people in the end.

And soul mates, I think there is one out there somewhere for everyone. Those who haven't found theirs, always seem to be on the search, with somewhat similar relationship experiences like Nick. There's always something there that leaves you wondering is this person right for me. Once you've found that person, you'll no longer wonder. 

I really learned alot from this book and felt certain parts were totally relate-able for me. The past life regression sessions impacted me the most. Particularly how his past life events were so connected with his present life and the amazing stories of the people who he was in a past life. I also thought it was totally interesting that birth marks are supposed to be a mark from where we died in our past life. It really makes you wonder, what if?

One of my favorite parts was at the end when everything came together regarding the accident on his way to the airport. That was definitely the climax and brought everything together that I had read so far. 

This book is one I had a hard time putting down. It draws you in from the first chapter, and you may stay up late trying to finish to see what happens. As a reader, there is alot to learn from this book. Whether this is a subject that you believe in or not, there is something everyone can gain from reading Soul Sessions. It's thought provoking, which I love when a book challenges me and gets me thinking. It's also one that will leave you with questions such as... Do we have multiple lives? or What happens after we die?

  1. I started and finished the book the same day. The story is well told and effectively opens your eyes to the possibility of alternative realities. Long convinced I am married to my soul mate, I related easily to the concepts Gage laid before us and enjoyed the journey he took us along.
