"Having undergone her own profound transformations in consciousness resulting from three successive Near-Death Experiences in 1977, P.M.H. Atwater set about on her distinguished career of careful, detective-like fieldwork and research into the mysteries of NDEs. Near-Death Experiences: the Rest of the Story is her crowning achievement. In it Atwater places the varied phenomena of NDEs into a broader setting of the natural 'ongoing process of transformative adaptation within the human family as a species'. This is P.M.H. Atwater at her very best, resetting the bar for all future NDE research. She is magnificent in her painstaking role as detective, observer, interrogator, advisor, empathizer, compiler & categorizer of data, and creative formulator of plausible hypotheses in the face of 43 years of research findings...This is Atwater's 10th book, and is an absolute must for anyone interested in how NDEs relate to the transformation of consciousness, spiritual awakening, and our true potential & that of the world. It is destined to become a classic in Near-Death Studies and Consciousness Research, and has my highest recommendation." --Scott A. Olsen, Ph.D., author of The Golden Section: Nature's Greatest Secret

  • Author P.M.H. Atwater

    P.M.H. Atwater is an international authority on near-death states as well as a near-death experiencer who "died" three times. She is the author of 20 books and lives in Charlottesville, Va. Visit her at: pmhatwater.blogspot.com

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 provides a glimpse of not only 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.

Olsen, Ph.D., author of The Golden Section: Nature's Greatest Secret "The significance of near-death experiences can hardly be exaggerated, because they point toward answers to The Great Questions -- our origin, life's meaning, and our destiny. There is no more courageous explorer of this domain than P. M. H. Atwater, who has been at the forefront of near-death research for more than three decades. The fear of death has caused immense suffering throughout human history; the information in this book is an antidote for this distress. Atwater's fine book conveys more than information; it delivers healing as well." --Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words, Reinventing Medicine, and The Power of Premonitions "In Near-Death Experiences, The Rest of the Story, P.M.H. Atwater significantly pushes the acceptable boundaries of the scientific, spiritual and moral implications of the near-death experience, in modern times. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the unacknowledged ramifications of the fact there is no such thing as death!" --Dannion and Kathryn Brinkley, International best sellers of Saved by the Light, Secrets of the Light "This review of over 3,000 NDE cases belongs on the bookshelf of everyone interested in the survival of consciousness. The inescapable conclusion of her intensive study is in keeping with my conclusion that 'always there is life.'" --John L.
