Before she died, Theanna (then Sara Lonsdale) developed a means to continue communication with her husband Ellias. The Book of Theanna contains Ellias' daily transcriptions of her words through Death's doors.
In the course of these epistles she discusses the scenery of Death; the denials and delusions of the recently dead; and the nature of sexuality, violence, and power. The Book of Theanna is not just another account of life after death; it is not a channeled book in the sense that that is usually understood. It enacts a virtually unknown and ignored method of spiritual communication. Theanna's principal task is to make this process available collectively so that from this point in history people will be able to come back from the dead and recognize where we are and the we are.
