New Books We Recommend

Here are some new books you might find of interest. Enjoy discovering the ones that have meaning for you!

Blogging Toward Infinity: Last Notes from the Ringdom

By Kenneth Ring

You'll want this book! Ken Ring is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Connecticut, author of five books on NDEs, and cofounder/first president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS). Now in his 90s, his work over the years has had an extraordinary impact on NDE research and the NDEs' lessons for all of us. In this book, Ring touches on many subjects of his studies and blogs over the years, including entries titled: NDEs--the Early Years, Lessons from the Life Review, Do Our Pets Have an Afterlife?, Revisioning Helen Keller, Terminal Lucidity, Love and Death, and Last Notes from the Ringdom. A treasury of short yet profound "notes" indeed.
--Eternea News Editor

Kenneth Ring’s latest book reminds me of an early love I had: the art of the essay. As Ring himself notes, blogging is essay writing. The essay…can be light and witty or profound and probing. Ring, one of the pioneers of near-death research, has produced a book of essays that are personal and profound…This is no everyday profession, eaves-dropping on the mystery of death…You will come away with a detailed picture of extraordinary facts that point to a human future that transcends the bleak offerings of mainstream materialism. Read the complete review here.
--Michael Grosso, author of Smile of the Universe

His "last notes" are filled with wonderful insights that only an NDE expert facing the realities of approaching death himself can produce. If you are looking for more information from Ken about NDEs, you will find them here...You will also find fascinating insights concerning his long and interesting life; the people and multimedia having influenced him throughout his life; his great passion for animals and animal justice; and much more. Ken's book section entitled "Adventures in NDEland" and his observations about the NDE life review are filled with gems comparable in quality with his classic Lessons from the Light. His wit and eloquence fills every page of this wonderful book. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to learn more about NDEs and about the NDE expert who has had the greatest influence in NDE literature.
--Kevin Williams

Spiritual Awakenings: Scientists and Academics Describe Their Experiences

Ed. by Marjorie Woollacott, PhD, and David Lorimer

This stunning collection shows that spiritual awakening is real, widespread, and life-changing, even among critical scientists. An invaluable achievement.
--Larry Dossey, MD, Author of One Mind, Space, Time, & Medicine and Recovering the Soul

This collection of personal testimonies of scientists' transcendent experiences provides a unique and polychromatic insight of human experience. Woollacott's and Lorimer's volume is unusual within science in both its grammar (first person) and topic (the subjective rather than objective). Yet both are essential aspects of human experience, especially for those who peer most deeply into the mysteries of the material world. It will prove a thought-provoking resource.
--Tom McLeish, PhD, FRS, Professor of Natural Philosophy in the Department of Physics, University of York (UK)

Science, Being and Becoming

By Paul J. Mills, PhD

Professor Mills is a shining example of a rigorous scientist and classic mystic, whose mind and heart are dedicated to the pursuit of both objective knowledge and subjective wisdom. This book tells the stories of scientists who walk the line between science and spirit, weaving them together into a beautiful tapestry that should validate the personal experiences of many more and bring us just a little bit closer to a glimpse of the ultimate and infinitely faceted nature of reality.
--Cassandra Vieten, PhD, Director of Research, Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, University of California, San Diego

Science, Being, & Becoming dismantles the fallacy that scientific investigation and spiritual exploration are at odds, instead illuminating them as two sides of the same coin. I am moved by the insights and the courage of Professor Mills and those academics and scientists who have shared their experiences and revelations, which beautifully express that what we are on the inside - mind - and the ultimate reality of the universe on the outside - matter - are one.
--Rupert Spira, author of The Nature of Consciousness: Essays on the Unity of Mind and Matter

The Story of GAIA: The Big Breath and the Evolutionary Journey of Our Conscious Planet

By Jude Currivan, PhD

Modern science has a fascinating story to tell concerning the origins and evolution of our marvelous universe. Jude Currivan’s encyclopedic knowledge of modern quantum-informed science shimmers with her vast, integrated knowledge of the relevant physics, chemistry and biology. Gaia truly comes to life through her masterpiece. Highly recommended!
--Eben Alexander, MD, Neurosurgeon and author of Proof of Heaven, The Map of Heaven, and Living in a Mindful Universe

The Story of GAIA is an amazing book. It tells the story of the Universe as the setting of the story of our planet. And it tells who we are, and what being the children of Gaia means for our life and our future—indeed, for the future of humanity on the planet and for the future of the planet in the Universe… Perhaps the greatest story ever told—now told with the authority of cutting-edge science.
--Ervin Laszlo PhD, whole systems theorist, philosopher, author and founder of Club of Budapest

A GREATER REALITY: The New Paradigm of Non-local Consciousness, the Paranormal and the Contact Modalities - in 3 volumes

Ed. by Reinerio (Rey) Hernandez, JD

These books contain articles from over 45 PhD academics, medical doctors, and researchers, plus over 75 articles from Experiencers of the Contact Modalities. Contributors include Raymond Moody, Bruce Greyson, Jim Tucker, Michael Grosso, Stephan A. Schwartz, Jeffrey Mishlove, Gary Schwartz, Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysicist Dr. Rudy Schild, and many others.

I have spent much of my adult life exploring the mysterious phenomena it deals with--NDEs, OBEs, UFOs, psychic and spiritual experiences. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking answers to what Colin Wilson called 'The Life Question'…What makes this book different is the quality of people and breadth of research amassed by Rey Hernandez and his fellow editors. Each section is written by someone of high credibility.
--Craig Pywell

PMH Atwater's Call for NDE Stories

Any near-death experiencer who had an encounter with an alien being, either during their NDE or within a year afterward, is eligible to participate in this study. An NDE is defined as an experience that occurs when nearly dying, coming close to death, or being pronounced or thought dead – and then reviving. Send a description of what happened during or after that experience, seeing or encountering an alien being thought to be not of this Earth, or feeling self as one of them.
Send your experience in writing/printing to:
Dr. PMH Atwater, P.O. Box 7691, Charlottesville, VA 22906,
or via e-mail to:
Drawings are welcome and must be black and white - color not accepted.
Everything sent must be accompanied by a signed and dated note from you giving me permission to use your story. Without that permission, I will be unable to use your story. I am not asking for a “book of stories” or lengthy renderings of “what happened.” I am no one’s judge, only a friendly researcher who is curious about what we do not often discuss: alien encounters.
