the search for david
DO WE EXIST PRIOR TO LIFE?
WE PLAN OUR LIVES?
WE SURVIVE DEATH?
Eighteen-year-old David Schwimmer's death at sea eventually received wide national attention through the reportage of The New York Times, The Washington
Post, Newsweek, and CBS's Sunday Morning.
the major story turned out to be David's pre-life and after-life. His father eventually received extraordinary information
about David's death, life plan, and spiritual identity from highly gifted and accurate psychics--like Irene Hughes and Noreen
Renier--and from David himself, communicating with his father through the psychics.
Search For David is a ritual journey through the soul of man, seeking out the dimensions of man's nature and the reasons
for his existence. The journey leads to the exploration of premonition, pre-existence of the soul, survival after death,
spirit communication, reincarnation, astrology, synchronicity, clairvoyance, mediumship, and more. This is a spiritual
detective story without equal.
quest of David's father turns into a search for his own true self, in the course of which David helps his father to learn
the lesson of unconditional love. The Search For David is the universal search of everyone, whether adult or
teenager, to discover where we came from, why we are here, where we will go when we die, and who we really are.
WHOLE LIFE TIMES
To lose a child is every parent's worst fear. As your child grows older
and begins to venture out into the world without you, there is always the lingering anxiety and that thought whispering in
your head, "Please, be safe."
For George Schwimmer, his nightmare began with a telephone call at mid- night.
His son, David, 18, had gone to Baja California on a kayaking trip with Outward Bound, which has programs designed
to teach survival skills. During David's final exercise in a storm off the coast,
his kayak capsized. Presumably, he was killed instantly, along with his partner
and one other person from the trip. David's body was never found.
for David is a first-person account of a father's attempts to uncover the details of his son's death and discern just
who David had been in life. In a search for final closure, the author began a
journey of discovery into his son which ultimately led him also into himself. With
the help of reputable psychics, David's journals, David's friends, and self-exploration, Schwimmer was able to say goodbye
to David and change his own life's path.
This is a powerful book that conveys the deep emotions and pain that the author experienced. For Schwimmer the "not-knowing" was at times harder than losing his
beloved son. He had no concrete way to say goodbye and had so many unanswered
questions. Through his search,
he came to realize that the parent-child connection and love transcend even death.
as we know it is only a small inkling of our soul's being. The Search for
David gives us a beautiful account of coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
It is not only an aid for anyone enduring the grieving process, but an
inspiration to us all. --Jennifer Eyraud http://www.wholelifemagazine.com

Probably most APRT members are
familiar with the understanding that our lives here on Earth are gifts
in learning--that Earth is our classroom. Most of our lessons are uniquely difficult for each of us, but perhaps one
of the most difficult of all lessons to comprehend and resolve is that of a parent losing a child.
In The Search for David, George Schwimmer takes
the reader through his experience of this tragic loss. But if losing a child is one of life's greatest tragedies,
then trying to understand and resolve such a loss can bring the gift of finding one's own soul in the process.
And this can be one of life's greatest triumphs. This is the process and the subsequent gift that George so beautifully
writes about in his book: his own personal journey into growth, change, understanding, and the ultimate acceptance of life's
purpose, of death--in a word, self-acceptance.
In 1978, George's 18-year-old son, David, was lost at sea
off the east coast of Baja California during an Outward Bound kayaking course. Hoping that David was still
alive, and unwilling to accept only the scattered pieces of information given to him surrounding his son's disappearance,
George began a search that perhaps only found resolution with the com- pletion of his book. His search for his son took him
through years of exploration, grieving, understanding, and change. It ultimately involved his own spiritual growth,
his discovery of his own true self. With his son's help, he was able to grasp the lesson of unconditional love.
George experiences the entire range of grieving: the
anger surrounding the reality of dealing with a system that is often geared toward self-protection, the feelings of isolation
and loneliness of living in a world that often only understands its own pain, of the struggle in trying to find meaning to life
through the memory of one's child, and the myriad other pressures that can sometimes shatter one's present existence.
And as sometimes transpires with individuals who are strong in determination--for those who have learned how to survive
adversity--George's path may have been the long path. This, however, adds a unique richness to his writing.
The book shines with personal reve- lations and deep insights. George
has given the reader a glimpse into the deepest recesses of his pain and struggles, and he does so with
descriptions that can be visualized and felt. He is able to describe from the inner, personal level, as well as
the objective, impersonal perspective, so that a complete picture of his search evolves. His outer search for under-
standing is no greater than his inner search, and he has integrated both in his
In a fluid, well-written style, he takes his life and his
son's through the present and past, through an inner and outer search, through subjective and objective perspectives, through
facts uncovered, and through his own developing inner wisdom. He has woven his search for David together with his search
for his own true self.
this book can provide understanding, hope and support to those people who have had to search for meaning and peace following
the loss of a child. It can also provide hope to those who are searching for meaning, purpose and understanding
in their own pain, and process of life and growth.
In this book the author
individualizes the process of human growth. The Search For David gives the reader the rare opportunity of experiencing
the personal process of one individual's evolvement at its most profound levels. George beautifully discloses how deeply
personal, sometimes painful, yet ultimately rewarding humankind's spiritual evolution can be.
