History

Walter Falk was born in 1933 on a farm in Manitoba near Winnipeg. He attended the University of Manitoba and graduated with a degree in Mathematics and Modern Physics in 1967. After graduation, he taught math, physics, and later computer science at a secondary level until his retirement in 1993. Upon the death of his wife Mary, he began exploring the field of spirit communication, including séances, which he participated in from 1991-2007. Through these séances, Falk was encouraged to study the notes of Dr. Thomas Glendenning Hamilton (1873-1935), held in the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, which he eventually did in 2004. Over the course of six years, he photographed and transcribed the notes, and created a website, videos, and ultimately a nine-disc collection called “The T.G. Hamilton Files” using both the notes and photographs of the Hamilton Family fonds (MSS 14). Falk is also a member of the Manitoba Hypnotherapy Association (MHA), currently (2015) an emeritus member, and has written and facilitated courses on hypnotherapy and past life regressions, including the MHA Certification Course in hypnosis in 1998. He has continued to work on various topics involving the survival of consciousness and past lives, creating documentary films and other files for future research.

Walter Falk passed away in 2016.
