8/6/15Psychology and the Near-Death Experience: Searching for God by Roy L Hill, Published by White Crow Books. Near-death experiences tantalize the public's interest in what lies beyond the final human breath. Answers have been streaming by the thousands during the last few decades from people who have had them. However, grand designs can only be splendidly revealed by connecting thousands of NDE accounts like a jigsaw puzzle. In his groundbreaking book, "Psychology and the Near-Death Experience," Roy L. Hill roughly sketches God's canvas by integrating hundreds of NDE testimonies within the context of human psychology. As an inquisitive psychologist with strong spiritual roots, Roy's book uniquely mixes academic curiosity with a deep reverence for the sacred. The reader can expect exposure to profound spiritual insights throughout the book. Systems of meaning will be challenged, new purpose will be defined, and the nature of self will be primed for discovery. In this manner, "Psychology and the Near-Death Experience" may aid the spiritual explorer in their search for God.
6/22/15Billy Idol's NDE, excerpt from his book "Dancing by Myself" I SENSE BEINGS CROWDING AROUND me. I hear voices, some very close and loud, others softer and farther away. The whirl of movement in this dark vortex tells me that other worlds exist; I can feel their magnetic pull. People have a gravity of presence, and I can feel their movement as I slowly regain my senses. I’m not sure if I’m alive or dead.
I’m transported to just above myself. There are no white tunnels or distant lights, rather a red dimension. Walking through the shadow world on the other side, I see the beings who grace the crimson night crowding around to greet me. They pour out their love. The strange dimension sends a beam of thought: You’re all right. We love you. Don’t worry, here is love. They press and push. The circle of people holds my soul in a warm embrace.
I can feel their minds, good thoughts passing through me. I am one with them, yet still an individual. The warm red permeates my mind; a florid sun must light this world. I am connected to others who no longer live, but who exist in this red dimension. Red is the color of life, the color of death, a red masque, a celebration. The male and female voices are soft and resonate in my soul. We love you, they say. There are no individuals, no identification.
Now I slip into a warp of darkness, pulled from this loving dimension. I hang in a slip of time between life and death; I slowly begin to regain consciousness
6/3/15 NDERF has a wonderful partnership with S17.TV which is a French WebTV all about NDE. The studio is set up like a news room and is the next big movement towards getting the word out about NDE. Sonia is also the organization behind the European NDE conferences. I urge people to visit her website and support her world changing efforts. She has also released her documentary movie 'Untimely Departure' in English and in French. Her native language is French and most of the information is on French, but they are in the process of translating to English. So, if there is anyone who is interested in helping her this is groundbreaking world-changing work.
5/25/15 NDERF is moving towards being more than a website. We have a person who has some land in northern Spain near the Mountain of Gorbea for a gathering place, meditation, and spiritual retreat center. We need a volunteer architect to help with the next step. Please contact me if you are interested or know of someone who might be interested in helping with this project or if you are not an architect and would like to donate time or funds to help make this a reality.

12/28/14 - The Reconciliation Project is now done for English, so the experiences are in the process of being converted to the new format. The project cleaned up grammar and spelling and put them into a database so they could uniformly be posted. The new format has a lot more information than previously shared on the website, so it might be interesting for you to start reading them again from the beginning. Click here for the index

11/15/14 - Cyber-Temple -
My name is Farnaz Masumian. I teach World Religions at the University of Texas at Austin. I am also the author of several books, including one on Life After Death, which includes a couple of chapters on NDEs. The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation also includes a chapter by me titled World Religions and Near Death Experiences. My family recently launched a non-profit, service-oriented site called the Cyber-Temple. This inter-faith site provides resources for meditation, contemplation, and relaxation. It also includes resources on both NDEs and Life After Death. This is an entirely service-oriented site.

4/16/14 Heaven is for Real is out! This is the Burpo child's NDE. I expected a lot of proselytizing, but was pleasantly surprised. It was minimal considering the father is a preacher. I liked the movie and Greg Kinnear and the Connor Corrum (the child) did a great job!
