What is The Newton Institute?

Following discoveries in clinical practice, Michael began to explore the afterlife through the eyes of his clients. It was to be over 25 years before Michael first shared his work with the world, having researched and assembled a model of the spiritual realm through the eyes of 7000 souls and over a career spanning 35 years.

This History of Dr. Michael Newton and The Newton Institute briefly summarizes the development of both the specialized field of LBL hypnotherapy and the international organization that supports Michael Newton’s work.

Michael’s first book, Journey of Souls, was published by Llewellyn in May 1994; and Michael presented his work to the public for the first time right after publication, at the Book Exposition of America held in Los Angeles. From there book signings were organized; firstly in California and over the next 8 years, Michael traveled around the US, then Canada, the UK and South Africa with book signings and presentations at New Age conferences.

In 1995, Michael’s work was featured in a Paramount Studios Television show called “Sightings”. This show featured Michael’s work, involved two of his clients and was filmed at his home. It is estimated that some 9 Million people saw the initial show and the number more than doubled with subsequent re-runs.

A series of requested lectures to Hypnotherapists and Hypnosis enthusiasts took Michael around the world, to organizations such as The College of Psychic Studies in London in the UK; the International Institute of Integral Human Sciences in Montreal in Canada and Aquarius Rising Communications in Johannesburg, South Africa. The audiences numbered around two thousand at these last two events, as Michael continued to stun the assembled groups with the breadth, depth and robustness of his work. Back home in the USA, Michael had been asked to be a keynote speaker at the International Association for Regression Research & Therapies (IARRT) Conference in 1996, and then a further 3 hour lecture in 2000 at Bastyr University. Earlier that year Michael had also presented for the American Board of Hypnotherapy (ABH) in Newport Beach, California.
