DMT - NDE Field Research Project (UK)

The study has ethical approval from the University of Greenwich Research Ethics Committee.

This scientific study of psychological, perceptual and mental affects is open to anyone. We are also interested in participants who have had separate DMT and NDE (near-death) experiences.

New Books We Recommend

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

In Search of Ultimate Reality: Inside the Cosmologist's Abyss

By H. Chris Ransford

Tightly reasoned, very readable, and insightful discussion of "ultimate reality." Books like this―that draw upon mathematics, physics, philosophy, and theology―offer some hope that our civilization might rise to the challenge and perhaps overcome some of the issues that confront us. - Greg Matloff, professor of astronomy and physics, CUNY

This book contributes to advancing one of the important debates in society today and to resolving issues that have historically divided mankind so much. - Oleg Y. Latyshev-Maysky, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Spiritual Science: Why science needs spirituality to make sense of the world

By Steve Taylor

Scientific materialism has foisted highly effective blinders on our world-at-large. Future historians will likely be incredulous at the century-long gap between the advent of investigation into quantum physics and any meaningful assimilation of its revelations into the mainstream scientific culture. Spiritual Science expertly argues the evidence for the primacy of consciousness, an inevitable realization that will engender the greatest revolution in the history of human thought. Science will ultimately ripen through the influence of our spiritual nature. Highly recommended! -Eben Alexander, MD, Neurosurgeon, author of Proof of Heaven, The Map of Heaven and Living in a Mindful Universe

With elegance and lucidity, Steve Taylor explains why spiritual science is the only hope for humanity. A science based on the superstition of matter as fundamental reality could lead to our extinction but a science grounded in the understanding of consciousness as a fundamental reality - as described by this book - could be our saving grace. - Deepak Chopra, MD, Chopra Foundation

The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma

By James Gordon, MD

This is the book on integrative trauma treatment I’ve been waiting for. The Transformation is firmly grounded in science as well as in Dr. Gordon’s 50 years of clinical experience. Bright with teaching stories and warm with compassion, it provides a step-by-step guide to healing life’s inevitable traumas and becoming who we’re meant to be. - Andrew Weil, MD, author, professor of medicine and public health, University of Arizona

This book and its message of hope and healing...have arrived right on time. Dr. Gordon takes us into the very heart of our power to be whole and transformed regardless of our past. Whoever you are, wherever you are, may you find solace, solutions, and peace within these pages. Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief

By David Kessler

David Kessler writes of a world that is rarely examined with such sensitivity. Now he has gone to an even deeper and more soulful place. He is a healer par excellence to others who are in pain. —Marianne Williamson, author of Return to Love

Finding Meaning is a brilliant, caring, practical guide to help us understand grief and embrace this important "sixth stage" - Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Aware, Mind, and Mindsight

Droplets of God: The Life and Philosophy of Mavis Pattilla

By Suzanne Giesemann

Mavis Pittilla and her mediumship have been a true blessing, teaching us that love, like life, will never die.- James Van Praagh, Spiritual Medium

The Grande Dame of Mediumship in England, Mavis Pattilla’s life reveals a multi-faceted, endearing woman who has overcome tremendous adversity, much of it caused by her own human frailties. Beyond a fascinating biography, the book is a primer of the foundations of mediumship, the key philosophical teachings of Spiritualism, and of the soul’s journey of self-realization.
