RETROCOGNITION – Recalling Past Experiences


This course addresses the phenomenon of past-life recall (retrocognition). Several movies and books have been produced reporting cases of people having these experiences. Few, however, explain the reasons that the phenomenon occurs or how to generate it.

The Retrocognition course strives to study, in a comprehensive way, the mechanism of retrocognition. Alegretti, author of the book Retrocognitions – Memories of Past Lives and the Periods Between Lives, will analyze the causes of and techniques to generate the recollection of previous lives and the period between lives. Retrocognition is an unavoidable and important element in human evolution. Through retrocognitions we learn about our decisions in the past, thus being able to avoid making the same mistakes again. Also, we can verify “who” the people are who compose our evolutionary group in this life. It also allows us to access information about our existential program (life task, life mission) for this life.

The course examines spontaneous, forced, and voluntary retrocognitions, discussing the factors that predispose or inhibit such recollections (case studies will be presented). In addition, the course addresses the precautions that should be kept in mind and the benefits of this phenomenon.

Beyond discussing the recollection of previous physical lives, the course also discusses recollections of the intermissive periods (or between-lives periods), which is a much more fruitful and advanced type of retrocognition.

Some of the topics covered:

  • The mechanisms of retrocognition, or past life recall
  • Factors which predispose or hinder retrocognition
  • Retrocognitions: spontaneous, forced / induced, and generated at will
  • Benefits and precautions regarding retrocognition
  • Retrocognition as an evolutionary tool

This course is offered by Wagner Alegretti, whose best-selling book Retrocognitions – Memories of Past Lives and the Periods Between Lives, is available in Portuguese, Spanish, English, and Japanese.
