Russell Targ, a laser physicist, cofounded the remote viewing research program at SRI International. He is coauthor of Mind Reach, The Mind Race, Miracles of Mind, The Heart of the Mind, and The End of Suffering. He is author of Limitless Mind and The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities. He is also coeditor of the anthology, Mind At Large.

Here he shares his memories of his late daughter, Elisabeth Targ, MD, a pioneering researcher in the realm of psychic healing. Elisabeth had been raised as a child to consider psychic functioning as a normal part of life. She was also fluent in several languages. She died at the age of 40 from a brain tumor. Subsequently, many accounts began to appear from individuals who believed themselves to have received convincing post-mortem messages from Elisabeth. Russell concludes by sharing a moving story of one such account that convinced him of the reality of Elisabeth’s post-mortem survival.
