Straight Talk about the NDE


One more book - mine. I finished it a few days ago; the manuscript is now winging it's way to reviewers and prospective publishers. The working title is: STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE: WHO WE ARE AS HUMANS, WHERE WE'RE HEADED AS THE SOULS WE TRULY ARE. (This is subject to change at the behest of publishers.)

Two years writing it, 33 years researching near-death states plus a previous decade experimenting with and studying altered states of consciousness, mysticism, psychic phenomena, and the transformative process. Yup, this is my last hurrah. I am retiring this year from active, original fieldwork. Yes, I will continue with this blog, available as a consultant, public speaker, workshops, and the like, but my work as a front-line researcher is done. A full-announcement will be made once a publisher is found for the book.

Caution: STRAIGHT TALK is far more outspoken than any of my other books, and it will be controversial. I stick my neck out with this one and say what I've never dared to say before - about the larger picture and what I suspect is really going on with transformative states such as near-death. Stay tuned: I'll keep you informed.

See what I mean? This really is an exciting year of revelation about that edge between life and death. PMH


The near-death experience is once again in vogue, in that some incredible research is seeing the light of day this year. In case you didn't know, the near-death experience is now the number one choice of scientists worldwide to study consciousness itself. Great opportunities exist this year to learn about this in the way of books, announcements, and conferences that take us to the next level of revelation.
