Dreaming & NDEs
Mon 03-24
Pioneer of Active Dreaming, combining shamanism and modern dream work, Robert Moss will discuss how he survived three near-death experiences in childhood and first learned about dreams through his friendship with Aborigines in Australia. He'll cover how we can develop the conscious practice of stepping in and out of time by using synchronicity, as well as the mental twilight state between waking and sleeping.

Very true, Michael, great post!

Our friend Mr. McLuhan does a good job looking into past research in his book "Randi's Prize."

There are current writers who are not going to go quietly into that long dark night. Edward Kelly and Emily Williams Kelly along with Adam Crabtree, Alan Gauld, Michael Grosso and Bruce Greyson have made a monumental contribution in their compilation book "Irreducible Mind" published first in 2007. None of them are shy about referencing work done by Frederic Myers and others pioneers in the field of parapsychology of the late 19th and early 20th century. This book of 800 pages including the index is a must-read for anyone who finds parapsychological phenomena interesting.

Another, but not so ponderous book is Immortal Longings by Trevor Hamilton. Published in 2009 this is a very detailed, while at the same time entertaining, account of the life and activities of Frederic Myers and others in his circle which are known to most of you e.g., William James, Edmund Gurney, Richard Hodgson, Eleanor Sidgwick, etc. etc. It provides seemingly real life background information on the early parapsychology titans as they laid the groundwork for others to follow.

It would make a great movie!- AOD

Great post. Thank you.
