I am honored to have world renowned author and NDE pioneer PHM Atwater on this week’s show!
Atwater is a noted authority on near-death experiences (NDEs), especially on the after-effects of NDEs, on NDEs in children and on hellish NDEs. She experienced three NDEs herself and has interviewed over 4,000 adult and child near-death experiencers. In 2001, her work on NDE after-effects was cited in The Lancet. As a result of her writings, she has been invited to speak around the world.
Atwater retired as an active fieldworker in near-death studies in 2010, calling for the entire field to recognize near-death states as part of the larger genre of transformations of consciousness and how they change people. Her last book on this subject, which gives her summation, is Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story I Died Three Times in 1977 – The Complete Story)
