Authors

Kenneth Ring, PhD, is professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Connecticut and cofounder and past president of the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS). Regarded by many as the “Dean of NDE Researchers,” he is the founding editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies and the author of several books, including his bestselling Life at Death, Heading toward Omega, and The Omega Project. He lives in Kentfield, California.
 
Evelyn Elsaesser Valarino is an independent researcher and author in the field of death-related experiences, notably NDEs and after-death communications (ADCs). She has written numerous books and articles on these subjects, including Lessons from the Light, coauthored with Kenneth Ring. She is the leader of the research project “Investigation of the Phenomenology and Impact of Spontaneous After-Death Communications (ADCs)” and founding member and member of the Scientific Committee of Swiss IANDS. She lives in Switzerland.

“No other researcher has been able to transmit to the rest of us the true meaning and impact of near-death phenomena for the planet.”
—Bruce Greyson, MD, bestselling author of After
 
“A major contribution that offers a wealth of case materials together with balanced and insightful commentary.”
—Raymond A. Moody, PhD, bestselling author of Life After Life
 
While providing many remarkable accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs), Lessons from the Light is much more than an inspiring collection of NDEs. In clear language, the practical lessons for living and dying are to be found from the study of these experiences. Written by one of the foremost authorities on NDEs, Lessons from the Light is a book for those looking to gain knowledge and wisdom to enhance their own lives by incorporating the insights stemming from what many people have come to believe is the ultimate spiritual experience.
 
Although Lessons from the Light recounts many moving stories of NDEs, it is not just another book filled with inspiring testimonies—it includes helpful guidance and practical exercises concerning how readers can make use of this knowledge to live with greater self-insight, self-compassion and concern for others, as well as be better prepared for death, dying, and bereavement. Readers can easily apply what they have learned to their own lives and absorb and internalize these lessons from the Light in such a way as to lead to deep personal and spiritual transformation.
 
This edition replaces the previous edition (ISBN 978-1-930491-11-3) and contains a new postscript by the author.
