In two short essays presented to Dr. Raymond Moody in Paris on 5. Feb.17 I have expanded on the standard observations of NDE experiencers and drawn conclusions that have not been published in this form before.
Because of your interest in the subject I thought to make those papers also accessible to you.

Body and Soul:…
Has anyone ever come back to talk about it?
What could one learn? What was it like?
How can this candle wax have dripped like a scroll? …
How can we see the importance of spiritual experiences if they keep being labeled as "psychotic"? And, how can we create a sustainable life on the planet unless we see more clearly that we are One with the planet earth and must care for all of her people?

I'm contemplating a piece of research work about the experienced nature of the afterlife. I intend to make detailed comparisons between channeled descriptions from spirits living 'Upstairs' written down by a number of channelers. There are many in the English language, 19th-20thCs - I'm on top of that I think, and there is the Brazilian national treasure Chico Xavier, a largely uneducated person who has channeled some 250 books, a couple of which are translated into English. Preliminary…Continue

This short ebook is a beginner's introduction to key themes in the anthropology of the supernatural. It aims to situate paranormal experiences and supernatural beliefs within a much broader framework through taking a cross-cultural approach. It is hoped that this approach will not only give the reader a greater appreciation of the variety of supernatural beliefs and paranormal experiences prevalent in the world’s cultures, but also that it will allow for a more in-depth, and so better…Continue

I cannot claim to be involved in research in any formal sense, but if self-examination in relation to non-material experiences is included in the definition of 'research', then yes, I am involved.

Now that I am officially retired perhaps it is time for me to get my three manuscripts published. This is where they can be seen and commented on with criticism (constructive I hope).

I've added reviews of Kathleen Ross's new book, Bound by Destiny and Muriel Dowding, The Psychic Life of Muriel, The Lady Dowding, to my Exploring the Afterlife Blog. Both deal with soul mates, reincarnation and psychic abilities but in very different ways.

(What follows is a short extract from my upcoming thesis. The conversation is between the Underworld deity Tua Ya Pek as tranced through his medium and myself. Shortly before this conversation, a girl with chronic leukaemia had approached him in his temple and asked for a cure. My previous blog article "Part 2: 13th March - collecting graveyard medicines" took place exactly two weeks after this initial meeting between the medium and the girl. I had been discussing with Tua Ya Pek the…Continue
