Dr Penny Sartori’s near death experience blog

10 Jun

Hello and welcome to my blog on near death experiences and consciousness.

I’ve decided to write a blog because I get so many questions through my website (often very similar) and I’ve been unable to reply to them all because there have been so many.

Check out the blog for the latest news and updates.

    It is great to see that you have got your blog up and running Penny – about time.

    I look forward to reading more about your NDE research as I have enjoyed listening to you and watching you on the BBC and ITV talking about all the NDEs that you have documented.

    What has taken you so long – have you been too busy swanning around with Clint Eastwood and all those other Hollywood stars whose near-death experience films you have been advising on?

    Hope to see more of you on the TV soon.

    Are you the lady that was on This Morning several years back talking about people having out of body experiences in hospital?

    I enjoyed listening to those stories. It makes you think.

    Hi- this sounds really interesting. I am a nurse in intensive care in Queensland,Australia. In my many years nursing here in Australia I have found we are severely lacking any information or training on topics such as death and dying and near death experiences. Due to the nature of ICU work this should be an integral part of on going training as many of our patents have “experiences” but there is no one for them to take it over with or share the experience with. And as nurses with no training or knowledge of this area (apart from personal reading) I feel ill equipped to talk with and counsel these patients.

    If you know of anyone in this wonderful country down under that offers some teaching in this area could you please let me know as I have many colleagues also interested in this. Do you travel to teach? Would be just wonderful to hear you talk,
    I look forward to regularly checking in on this blog. Also you said you have a web site, could you please add a link here or let me know the web address?

      Thank you for your comment Wozzie. I too have found the subjects of death dying and NDEs to be severely lacking in the education of health care workers. I agree it should be an essential part of all ICU nurse training. I found that most people who have a NDE do not speak about it because they are afraid that people will consider them to be crazy – which they certainly are not. The first reaction a person gets when they talk about their NDE is crucial to how they understand it and integrate it into their life. It is so important that healthcare workers are educated about NDEs so that they can respond in a supportive way and maybe guide them to further resources that would help.

      In Australia the NDE researcher who springs to mind is Cherie Sutherland who has done a lot of research into childhood NDEs. I don’t think there is anyone who has specialised in prospective hospital research.

      I would love to do some lectures in Australia. I have just finished writing a second book on NDEs so it may be possible to travel to Australia to give talks in the coming months to promote my book.

      Through my work as an ICU nurse, I have found that having a knowledge of NDEs not only benefits those who have undergone a NDE but it can also benefit dying patients and their relatives. Keep checking the blog and I’ll add some information that may help you when caring for patients in ICU.

    I wish you all the best with the publication of your new book Penny. The more I read of it, the more you seem to resemble the fearless researcher, Emily Firefox in my e-novella “World in a Grain”! Jeremy Shaw

      Hi Jeremy, thank you so much. I really enjoyed reading your novel ‘World in a Grain’. I plan to revamp the book review section of the blog as soon as I get chance and I will add your book as I think many followers would enjoy reading it.
