The Induction of After-Death Communications Utilizing Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: A New Discovery

The Induction of After-Death Communications Utilizing Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: A New Discovery

Date: Spring 2000
Creator: Botkin, Allan L.
Description: Article describing a new induction technique that produces after-death communications (ADCs) in a more reliable, rapid, and efficient manner. ADCs induced by this new technique provide a more elaborated experience that often fosters complete resolution of grief. These induced ADCs also appear to be much more like near-death experiences (NDEs) than do spontaneous ADCs, which suggests that NDEs and ADCs may be essentially the same phenomenon.

A Near-Death Experience Followed by the Visitation of an "Angel-Like" Being

A Near-Death Experience Followed by the Visitation of an "Angel-Like" Being

Date: Winter 2000
Creator: Bonenfant, Richard J.
Description: Abstract: I describe a near-death experience (NDE) followed by a religious experience 15 years later in which the subject was visited by the same "angel-like" figure that she saw in the NDE. I describe details of the NDE and of the subsequent visitation; note transformational changes in behavior and associated aftereffects; examine childhood experiences possibly related to the NDE; review the presence of angels in Biblical and mystical literature and in contemporary media; and suggest a possible relationship between latent paranormal abilities and the occurrence of a variety of exceptional experiences.

Description: Study looking at three popular works of short fiction, by Leo Tolstoy, Ambrose Bierce, and Katherine Anne Porter, in which the main character dies at the end. There are similarities and differences between these deaths and recent near-death experience (NDE) accounts. The comparison helps define the modern sensibility about dying that is part of the cultural context for interest in NDEs.

Date: Spring 2001
Creator: Bailey, Lee W.
Description: Article exploring a phenomenon remarkably like the near-death experience that has been uncovered in Tibetan culture.

These delogs are a bridge between contemporary near-death experiences and ancient shamanic practices.

Near-Death Experiences in Thailand

Near-Death Experiences in Thailand

Date: Spring 2001
Creator: Murphy, Todd
Description: Study examining near-death experiences (NDEs) in Thailand, which do not demonstrate the episodes most noted in those collected in the West, but they do show consistent features. The article argues that these features, including harbingers of death, visions of hell, the Lord of the underworld, and the benefits of making donations to Buddhist monks and temples, can be understood within the framework of beliefs and customs unique to Southeast Asia.

The Near-Death Experience as a Shamanic Initiation: A Case Study

The Near-Death Experience as a Shamanic Initiation: A Case Study

Date: Summer 2001
Creator: Green, J. Timothy
Description: Abstract: The field of near-death studies shares a number of interesting, often compelling, similarities with the ancient spiritual tradition known as shamanism. Not least among these similarities is the fact that a near-death experience (NDE) is a time-honored form of shamanic initiation. I present a case example illustrating how a deep NDE can propel a person who had no prior knowledge or interest in shamanism into spontaneous, often classic, shamanic experiences, while living an apparently normal life in the midst of modern Western society.

Afterlife Research and the Shamanic Turn

Afterlife Research and the Shamanic Turn

Date: Autumn 2001
Creator: Grosso, Michael
Description: Abstract: In Western culture, approaches to the afterlife have mutated throughout history, from shamanism and mythology to philosophy, spiritualism, and psychical research. For conceptual reasons, however, survival research seems to many to be languishing, despite some remarkable recent advances. I urge a return to a more experience-based approach, modeled after features of the near-death experience, for its practical benefits; I intend that approach to complement other forms of research, not displace them. Finally, I underscore the unique status of survival research as a scientific pursuit.

An Hawaiian Near-Death Experience

Date: Autumn 2001
Creator: Kellehear, Allan
Description: Article presenting a case report of an Hawaiian near-death experience (NDE) from the early 1900s, which was uncovered in a turn-of-the-century monograph of Hawaiian folk tales. The account differs from others in the same volume because it appears to be a real-life account rather than a folk tale. The article describes similarities and differences from other Polynesian NDE account in the literature, a Maori NDE reported by Michael King in 1985.
