I still can’t write without pain – it seems I may have a pinched nerve and am having an MRI today – but I wanted to take just a moment to share a very inspiring NDE account with you that I recently received from a friend. Just the thing to lift our sagging spirits during these dispirited times. It will reassure you that much better times are ahead for us – someday – no matter how the election turns out (this piece was originally published on October 26th on Dr. Ring’s website -Ed.) and what may follow in the short term.
It will take a half hour. You won’t regret taking the time to watch it.
Dr. Ring is Professor Emeritus of psychology at the University of Connecticut where he researched near-death experiences. He designed scientifically structured studies of 102 near-death survivors that further developed Dr. Raymond Moody’s early NDE findings. He is well-known for his ground-breaking research of investigating NDEs among blind persons in his book Mindsight. Ken Ring is the co-founder and past president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) and is the founding editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies. He has published several near-death experience related books, including Life at Death (1980), Heading Toward Omega (1984), The Omega Project: Near-Death Experiences, UFO Encounters, and Mind at Large (1992), and his most well-known and celebrated NDE book, Lessons from the Light (2000).
