Frightening or Unpleasant Near-Death Experiences

17 Jan

I am currently preparing a paper about frightening near-death experiences to present at a forthcoming conference. (I’ll post a future comment with links to the conference over the next few days). I am very interested in the frightening NDEs as well as the pleasant NDEs. However, there is far less information about the frightening NDEs so I am looking for people who have specifically experienced a frightening NDE. Continue reading

Frightening NDEs: Dancing Past the Dark: Distressing Near-Death Experiences by Nancy Evans Bush

23 Jul


Nancy Evans Bush has released her long awaited book Dancing Past The Dark: Distressing Near-Death Experiences. I have recently finished reading this great book on frightening or distressing NDEs. It is so refreshing to see the frightening NDEs brought to the attention of the public.

The Healing Power of NDEs

17 May


In previous posts I’ve mentioned how some people appear to be ‘healed’ following their NDE. Indeed, Patient 10 in the hospital research that I conducted demonstrated such a healing. His right hand which had been in a permanently contracted position since birth is now fully opened – this should not be possible without having surgery to release the tendons which would be in a permanently shortened position.

Below are some other examples of NDEs where people have been healed. Continue reading

Final Passages – Preparation the day before

3 May


The above pictures give an idea of the building in which the forum was held.

The day prior to the conference, Penny Patterson (Communications Officer at Promega) took me to lunch along with Stan and Christina Grof which was a huge honour for me. To spend such quality time with people I had looked up to and whose work has been a great influence on my own work and my way of understanding consciousness was a true gift. Continue reading
