The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences
Compact Disc ISBN: 1531845142
Dr. Penny Sartori is a registered nurse who began researching Near Death Experiences (NDEs) in 1995 after one of her long-term intensive care patients begged her to let him die in peace. The event shook her deeply and eventually led her to enroll in a PhD program to research NDEs. The findings, along with the profound spiritual lessons that she has gleaned from her work, are published here. During her academic work, Dr. Sartori studied three samples of ICU patients during a five year period. The first consisted of 243 patients from the first year of data collection who survived their ICU experience. Of those, two experienced an NDE, and two an out-of-body experience (OBE). The second cohort consisted of survivors of cardiac arrest during the five year period. Of those, 39 patients (or 18%) experienced an NDE. The third cohort consisted of all the patients who experienced an NDE during the five year period. Their stories are captured in her new book. One patient in particular, patient number 10, stands out for Dr. Sartori. When asked about the biggest takeaway from her research, Dr. Sartori says, "In medicine, we're trained to believe that the brain gives rise to consciousness. My research into NDEs has made me question this prevailing paradigm, which admittedly is very widespread. The most important lesson for me has been a deeper appreciation for death and a whole lot less fear and anxiety about it." In addition to detailing dozens of case studies, the book also discusses childhood NDEs, differences in NDEs among different cultures, and the after-effects of NDEs—one of which is the inability, in some patients, to wear a wrist-watch. Penny Sartori PhD, RGN is an expert in NDEs and undertook the UK's first long-term prospective study. She is the author of The Near-Death Experiences of Hospitalized Intensive Care Patients: A Five Year Clinical Study and lectures both nationally and internationally.
The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences
How Understanding NDEs Can Help Us Live More Fully
Paperback ISBN: 1780285655
This book considers a wide range of experiences of dying patients that Dr Sartori has encountered during her nursing career. It focuses on the near-death experiences (NDEs) of patients Dr Sartori has nursed as well as the hundreds of cases of people who have contacted her over the years. Many people take NDEs at surface value and are mis-informed about the full extent of this highly complex phenomenon. This book examines all aspects of the NDE and Dr Sartori emphasizes that by pathologising the NDE we are missing out on very important insights which can empower us to live fulfilled and meaningful lives. The results of her hospital research and that of others could not find a physiological or psychological explanation for these experiences and they can no longer be ignored or explained away. The crucial point of this book is that NDEs undoubtedly occur and have very real, often dramatic, life changing after effects. Further to that, the wisdom gained during the NDE can be life enhancing and have hugely positive effects on those who don't have a NDE - all we have to do is take notice and hear what these people have to say. A greater understanding of NDEs can not only enhance the way in which we care for dying patients but also revolutionize our current world view. This book encourages readers to take notice of and incorporate the wisdom and powerful message of NDEs into their own lives.

What We Say As We're Nearing Death
Paperback ISBN: 1608684601
What started out as a linguistic investigation into the meaning behind the intriguing and perplexing shifts in her father’s speech during the final weeks of his life became a much bigger project, leading Lisa Smartt to the work of Raymond Moody and to the founding of the Life After Life Institute. When Lisa Smartt became curious about her dying father’s uncharacteristic language, she began recording what he said. How could the startling changes she saw in her cigar-chomping father in those last weeks of life be explained? How was it that a complete skeptic, whose God lived between the slices of corned beef on rye, suddenly spoke about angels and another dimension? Did his language reveal that there was perhaps something beyond this world?or that we are ?wired
