Near-Death Experiences, The Rest of the Story: What They Teach Us About Living and Dying and Our True Purpose

Front Cover
Hampton Roads Publishing, Jan 9, 2009 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 304 pages

Real-life stories of out-of-body experiences, encountering a special light, greeters from the afterlife, life reviews, tunnels, and 360-degree vision--are all part of this intriguing look at near-death experiences (NDEs) by one of the world’s noted authorities, P.M.H. Atwater. Atwater shares her amazing findings, based on her sessions with more than 4,000 adults and children and over 40 years of research; a breathtaking culmination to a successful and controversial career. Atwater examines every aspect of the near-death phenomenon: from first-hand accounts of survivors experiencing flash forwards, waking up in morgues, and developing psychic abilities, to stunning cases of groups experiencing NDEs together. Atwater offers statistics from her findings to show the distinctive common patterns that people experience, as well as the common aftereffects and how it changed their lives. She also explores the physiological and spiritual changes that result from near-death experiences and looks at the connections between the NDE experience and what is often called “enlightenment." Near Death Experiences not only provides a glimpse of what lies beyond the veil of our temporal existence, but points to what--or who--we really are and what we are meant to be.
