What if you could get to the roots of your current life challenges or discover exciting possibilities for bringing greater meaning and fulfilment into your life — in about an hour and a half?
And what if you could successfully help others to do this, too?
AND what if you could reach beyond memory and the usual means used in a therapy or counseling session to achieve this — unearthing lives and experiences already lived?
Such a process is available and fairly easy to learn... it’s called past life regression...
We all have buried, or partially hidden, issues (karma) or affinities (dharma) spurred by our past lives. These can show up in many ways — as the chronic backache you just can’t shake, the self-sabotaging relationship pattern you keep repeating, or even as a remarkable talent that just comes to you naturally.
There have been many scientific findings that confirm past life experiences, and past life regression therapy has been used for decades as a potent modality for delving into past lives to get to the bottom of current life issues and potentials.
Past life regression therapy uses hypnosis to ease a client into a relaxed state for opening to guidance to help uncover a particular past life, one that will be of most value to the client’s personal and spiritual growth at the time.
For those new to this modality, or leary about a process that may seem a little “out there,” the thousands upon thousands of clients across the globe who have discovered life-transforming insights through past life regression — improving their current life (in ways no other modality could) — may shift your perspective. (You can read the powerful testimonials of some lower on this page.)
Through the lens of regression therapy, your life is viewed as having a divine purpose.
Before you were born — with the assistance of spirit guides and wise elders — you designed a plan for this incarnation, choosing the family, culture, era, and life circumstances that would best serve your spiritual advancement.
Exploring your soul’s journey through past life regression can provide insights into how to mitigate or balance your karmic patterns now. Balancing past-life karma is the key to aiding your soul’s evolution.
Healing relationships, caring for oneself, and working through fear and loss can help you mend the wounds of your past lives and shift the course of this and future lifetimes.
Through past life regression, you can find out the reason for a chronic physical challenge... You just might discover that the original source of your sore neck traces back to carrying water vessels on your shoulders in early Egyptian times.
Or, that the person you’re so strongly drawn to in this lifetime — who’s “not your type” — was actually your spouse or son or father in another life. Or, you may discover that your current fear of bridges is the result of having seen a loved one jump off one in a previous life.
This 10-week advanced training in past life regression with author, psychologist, and past life regression therapist Dr. Linda Backman will provide you with the practical skills and client prep guidelines needed to lead others in the past life regression process.
Dr. Backman’s approach to soul exploration is not religious. She bases her understanding of soul evolution on vast professional research and decades of case studies.
As a clinical psychologist and regression therapist, she’s worked with hundreds of clients, assisting them in experiencing past life regressions and aiding them in using their discoveries and new understandings to help heal past wounds, mitigate karma, and live more freely and fully.
To help clients experience this important work in a way that provides lasting results, Dr. Backman will instruct you in using both right-brain and left-brain approaches.
You’ll learn and practice each step of a past-life regression, including how to conduct a pre-regression meeting with a client, prepare a client for the session, initiate an induction (the process of guiding a client into a hypnotic state), lead a client in opening to an unseen guide or their higher Self (to uncover the past life to be explored), and help them to bring and use the important insights they discover into their life today.
You’ll also receive insights on how to effectively use your own intuition to help guide a client to open to unseen guidance and feel safe during the process — key elements in conducting a successful past life regression.
Linda will also demonstrate a past life regression live during the training.
And you’ll discover how you can use this potent process to uncover your own past life material and aid in your own soul’s evolution in this lifetime.
We all hold past-life karma and dharma that can offer us fertile ground for growing and evolving our soul, and healing and more fully enjoying our life today.
Past life regression therapy offers us a proven means for excavating the insights and strong feelings linked to our past lives, which can illuminate what we need to face and heal to take our next positive steps this time around.
Past life regression can help you to better understand soul, gain important insights into how to heal and thrive in your present life AND it can be a potent life-changing addition to a hypnotherapy or other healing practice as well as a profound means for accelerating your own spiritual and personal growth.
Please Note: Participants in The Past Life Regression Training have the option of using this course as a foundation for certification in Past Life Regression to guide clients. Those who desire certification will continue to work with Linda upon completion of the Shift Network training to meet additional requirements. There is a fee for certification and details will be outlined by Linda during the 10-week Shift program.
So you can better connect with Linda and her teachings, all of her sessions will be streamed on video. This video connection will be easy to use and will enhance the impact of Linda’s teaching. Or, you can easily connect via audio, either through the Internet or your phone.
Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 4:00pm Pacific.
In this 10-week transformational training, Dr. Backman will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to learn to help others uncover important insights from their past lives, illuminating what they need to face and heal to thrive in this lifetime.
Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles to master this potent hypnosis-based modality.
You’ll receive in-depth teachings and experiential intuitive deepening practices and step-by-step instruction for conducting a past life regression from a renowned expert in the field. Linda will also present true-life case studies from her client work to ground and expand the teachings. In addition, you’ll be given weekly exercises and journaling questions to deepen your access to your guides and help shift current life challenges.
NOTE: Linda will be available for LIVE Q&A on most class sessions to engage with your emerging inquiries about the course material.
Our past lives and the information about them are believed to be held within the Akashic Records. Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning sky, space, or ether. It’s believed these records are real but energetic, existing in a non-physical plane.
Often, we have more than one past life where related circumstances constrict our life today — a pattern that appears from one life to the next, leading us to make faulty assumptions about our capabilities or how others will treat us.
For example, you may have had a lifetime 1,500 years ago that’s tied to your unexamined, puzzling, or undermining beliefs today. Perhaps your mindset was much too “advanced” for others at that time, and in your life today, you may shy away from being open about what is deeply meaningful to you for fear you’ll be ostracized. You can gain important insights by considering the apprehension you now hold that may be tied to a past-life experience.
In this first module, you’ll explore how when a client is in trance, she is able to utilize intuition to become aware of such past life events and details.
This week, you’ll discover how to:
Experiential exercise: Guided intuitive encounter to trust we are guided at all times
Soul regression therapy uses hypnosis, similar to deep meditation, to support and guide a client into a relaxed, altered state of consciousness called trance.
Every day, when we relax enough to fall asleep, the frequency of our brain waves lessons. It’s when we are in these alpha and theta brain wave states that we gain access to the soul knowledge of our higher Self. Your higher Self has access to guides (in other realms and lifetimes) and a “library” of soul information that can be helpful to your soul’s evolution.
During regression hypnotherapy, your left brain is the mental overseer, enabling you to understand intuitive guidance from the spiritual realm. The key to gaining clarity and balance in this process is to exercise and trust both your right- and left-brain capabilities.
This week, you’ll:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to deepen and allow past life content to arise
Past life regression clients frequently uncover a past life pattern, for example, in which they have repeatedly been abandoned by a parent, either physically or emotionally. In the soul DNA of such people, there may still be karmic residue of this past, causing them to cling to feelings of victimization.
If they can be guided in releasing this bound-up hurt and anger, they can let go of their emotional distress and clear out this painful energy, which can enable their soul’s evolution to achieve its intentions this time around.
This week, you’ll:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to discover a past life theme
Interviewing and preparing a client for a past life regression is as important as conducting the regression itself. One or two pointed questions from the client can aid their guides as to which past life to reveal. Examples of such questions include: Is there a current life relationship that could potentially be tied to a past lifetime? Or, is there a past life event that could be causing a current life fear or physical symptom?
Soul regression can illuminate the root cause of a physical or emotional health challenge. Melding our eternal Soul Memory Code with this lifetime’s body and mind activates our life blueprint to evolve our soul — and that of humanity.
In that respect, when we release past life trauma and care for our mind, body, and spirit in the ways that are best for us, we also honor the core of “all that is.”
This week, you’ll discover how to:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to talk with a guide about intentions and questions to be asked in a regression
Past life regression is a powerful tool. In simple terms, it refers to the use by a trained practitioner of specific breathing techniques, guided imagery, and other noninvasive means to guide a client into a natural state of relaxation, or trance hypnosis, that is conducive to accessing information beyond that which can be obtained in our everyday waking state.
The regression therapist uses a specific hypnotic induction to support a client’s revelation of a past life that can explain circumstances in current life. Understanding the past life regression process, as well as a specific group of skills, is essential for a practitioner to have success at this. Such skills include helping a client in moving through the past lifetime, scene by scene, and uncovering events surrounding the death scene.
This week, you’ll discover how to:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience for participants to discover a karmic or dharmic past life
Past lives can affect our current life in every imaginable manner — physically, emotionally, and behaviorally.
Regression into past-life memory “opens the curtain” on specific important scenes and events that we have lived in different times and places, providing an opportunity to unlock emotions, thoughts, awarenesses, and energetic blocks they may have caused.
Regression hypnotherapy is a precise and powerful tool you can use to access and deepen your understanding of your core Self. It can open a unique window on any number of issues and life circumstances, including fear of death, health challenges, emotions, phobias, career choices, geographic location of residence, relationships, and interplanetary connections (lifetimes spent in realms other than Earth).
This week, you’ll discover how to:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to talk with a guide about lives on Earth and elsewhere
Resolving experiences from other lifetimes often requires “attaching to” and acceptance of challenging past experiences, such as the death of a child, the ending of a love relationship, the ache of aloneness, and more.
Attachment happens when we encounter a previous life circumstance in which discomfort was the end result. Once we attach, it’s crucial to free ourselves from the pain that binds us.
Detachment relates to maintaining healthy emotional and physical distance from an event or situation. it’s in the freeing, in the detachment, that we start to understand that all is meaningful, and is there to lead us ever higher on the ladder of our individual soul evolution, and that of humanity.
This week, you’ll discover how to:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to talk with a guide about attachment and detachment
As advancing souls, we’ve known embodiment for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. And each life we undergo has an objective.
Like the tides of a calm or a stormy sea, some incarnations are framed with pleasantry, through agreeable relationships, work, and health, including the quality of where and how we live, while others are “prickly,” intended for rapid and intense emotional and spiritual growth. Lives of challenge reflect our behavior — both as the victim and the victimizer.
Our current life details reveal themselves through memory, ours and that of our family members. Yet, without the “big picture” of our string of past lives, it’s impossible to fully comprehend why we must cope with what we’ve “been handed” this time around. For example, we don’t know why we have a father who is alcoholic, or a child with a chronic illness. Through past life regression, we may discover the origins of these challenges. The soul of our father may have also been that of a servant-girl we abused; our child may be have been our child in a past life, in which we left them to be raised by grandparents.
This week, you’ll discover:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to talk with a guide about why a particular past life was discovered
Guiding a client to unveil specific linear and emotional details of a past life, chosen by spiritual guides, is often profound and life-changing. Past life facilitation and therapy requires a skillful combination of precise practices and spiritual awareness.
Supporting and aiding a client in this process — which include the discovery of their karma and dharma is an honor, as well as a serious responsibility. This week, you’ll learn distinct and methodical “implements” for guiding a client through past life revelations to help them evolve their soul in this lifetime.
This week, you’ll discover:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to enhance the progress of soul evolution
When we “mend” our soul through reincarnation, the “seam” of our ongoing soul evolution is tightly sewn — through our knowledge, understanding, and release of who we’ve been and what we’ve done. Through consistent balance and healing of what has come before, we evolve as a soul.
This is an experiential and often painful process. As we illuminate the darkness of our past, the pain of our misdeeds, caused by their emergence, is suffered. In other words, during soul regression, when we delve into exactly what happened, and with whom, we can arrive at the place of debriding our soul wound. And it’s only then are we likely to avoid similar behavior in the future.
Though it’s not essential to actually know someone in your life today, who was your victim in a past life, the power of literal, truthful sharing and apology goes a long way to assist you (both) to release past wounds.
This week, you’ll discover:
Experiential: Guided intuitive experience to help you incarnate today with purposeful intention

Because of this Shift Network course with Linda Backman, I experienced huge shifts in being able to recognize when and how past life karma is showing up in my life... I am so grateful for this deep, transformational learning!
— Kristin Wildensee, Iowa City, Iowa
enabled me to find and work with some past lives that needed clearing. I also was surprised to find an interplanetary life. I really liked Dr. Backman’s expertise and I hope to attend one of her workshops in the future.
— Sarita Boban
Linda’s class gave me the opportunity to look into my “past” each week with her compassionate help and thorough explanations. If you’ve been curious about past lives, this is a great course for those wanting to “test the waters” as well as those who are more seasoned.
— Jen, North Carolina
I found it very easy to access past life images with Linda’s guided experiences, and it was very helpful and applicable to my life now. And the recordings were invaluable as i was unable to attend live. Would take a follow-up course with Dr. Backman for sure. Thank you.
— Tina Hamilton, Ventura, California
I feel enlightened because it opened up a world I felt in my heart but wasn’t educated about. There are moments, places, experiences, fears I know can be tied to a past life. I now have a set of tools that will help me explore this realm and, perhaps, resolve some karma in my life.
Thank you so much, I received much-needed information and clues to the subject of past life experiences. I received words and images that will stay with me and continue to nurture my soul and practice.
— Victoria Gagnebin, Novato, California
The course opened doors and understanding. Linda Backman led us deep into past lives, soul purpose, karma, and how to effectively contribute to our own soul evolution and that of our planet. The course was organized and well put together... Linda was awesome giving feedback and explanations. It was a great experience!
— Antje, Rockland, Maine
This course really helped me gain a higher perspective about who I am and the challenges I’ve faced in my life. It also helped me be more compassionate towards others as I now better understand and can recognize their archetypes and the courage of their soul in agreeing to take on certain experiences and challenges. I highly recommend this course!
— Amy Grams, Santa Rosa, California
The course [with Linda] helped explain why certain events happened in my life. Also, I left each class feeling calm and peaceful. I plan on sharing the guidance with friends I share like values with.
— Sandy, Alberta, Canada
Discourse gave me greater understanding of our souls journey here in this dimension as well as other dimensions at same time. I have a greater feeling of peace and purpose in my life here.

The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
