After literally stumbling into orbs appearing as bright as light bulbs in photographs he was taking at a spiritual retreat, Dr. Klaus Heinemann immediately sensed that he was onto something profound. There was no choice but to convince himself that his notion was on solid grounds. Heinemann looked at thousands of pictures he had taken earlier, and thousands more would be taken to test the hypothesis that these light circles are nothing less than emanations from Spirit beings.

Dr. Míceál Ledwith had a similar experience after the orb phenomenon was first made known to him through the teachings of Ramtha. He began an intense and systematic study of orbs in all sort of situations, day and night, and in all sorts of atmospheric conditions, in order to discover all he could about their nature, the situations in which their presence could be most easily detected, and what implications they might have for our understanding of our own place in the cosmos. To date, he has amassed a collection of well over 100,000 images.

In The Orb Project, Ledwith and Heinemann present their fascinating discoveries, along with practical tips that amateur digital photographers can use to photograph orbs and properly distinguish them from "false" orbs that are really dust or water particles. They offer guidelines on deciphering the orbs' various patterns, features, and characteristics, based on their extensive research.

As Dr. Ledwith points out, once you develop a keen and sustained interest in photographing spirit entities, some quite interesting things begin to happen: the brain stops censoring these images, and you can begin to see with orbs with the naked eye -- in more color and detail than is visible to even a digital camera.

Ledwith and Heinemann also explore communication with orbs and what their existence means to our lives. The implications of a realization that we are "surrounded by a cloud of witnesses" are enormous and incredibly hopeful for the world at large.

Klaus Heinemann was born and educated in Germany. He holds a Ph.D. in experimental physics from the University of Tübingen and has worked for many years in materials science research at NASA, UCLA, and as a research professor at Stanford University.  He has authored and co-authored over 80 peer-reviewed scientific publications.  He is founder and CEO/CFO of a corporation that performs scientific research in computational fluid dynamics, materials development, and nanotechnology under contracts from NASA. Dr. Heinemann has also worked extensively in the area of solar energy and water purification with environmentally friendly means and wrote a university-level textbook and holds several patents in this field. For several decades Dr. Heinemann has worked on mending the commonly perceived rift between science and spirituality.  His books Consciousness or Entropy? and Expanding Perception – consciousness, wisdom, compassion, love, are snapshots of this passion, which was stimulated and expanded by his contact with great minds from around the world ever since his immigration to the United States in 1969.  On his journey of re-discovering spirituality, Klaus has explored energy healing and how it can be rationalized and embraced by a person with a natural science-oriented frame of mind. Studies with his personal teachers, the late Dr. Harry and Emilia Rathbun, founders of the world-wide “Beyond War” movement, and the renowned spiritual healer Dr. Ron Roth, gave him a deep understanding that the conventional physical realm is merely an extension of the limitless spiritual realm, rather than all there is.  Klaus Heinemann is a Reiki and Karuna Reiki Master and an ordained spirit-directed healer.Dr. Heinemann has lectured numerous times about his findings and conclusions from this exciting physical manifestation from the spiritual realm. Miceal Ledwith, Ph.D., was Professor of Systematic Theology for sixteen years at Maynooth College in Ireland and subsequently served for ten years as president of the university.He was a member of the International Theological Commission, a small group of theologians of international standing, charged with advising the Holy See on theological matters.
