In The End of Materialism, Tart presents research that supports the existence of paranormal phenomena and shows readers how science and spirituality can be understood as two interconnected halves of a whole instead of as forces in opposition.
The book presents Tart's most intriguing findings in his fifty year career investigating paranormal phenomena in scientific experiments at prestigious institutions including Stanford University and the University of California, Davis. This book offers evidence for the existence of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis and psychic healing, and explains other phenomena such as out-of-body experiences and near-death experiences.

In Life After Life, Raymond Moody investigates more than one hundred case studies of people who experienced "clinical death" and were subsequently revived.
First published in 1975, this classic exploration of life after death started a revolution in popular attitudes about the afterlife and established Dr. Moody as the world's leading authority in the field of near-death experiences.
Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Dr. Alexander knew that NDEs feel real but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down completely.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) is one of Britain’s most acclaimed authors. His creation of Sherlock Holmes and the subsequent novels featuring the Victorian sleuth made him, and Holmes, household names across the globe. Of less renown, however, are his later works in which he considered and discussed what he eventually saw as his life’s true mission; to spread the message of Spiritualism.
This book is about NOW—a time of unprecedented change and challenge. The author’s fifty years as a scientist have enmeshed with two decades of séance group encounters. These have led to intriguing revelations, that fast became sensational between-worlds adventures.
Anthony Borgia was a medium who transcribed the thoughts of a deceased priest and author whom he had known in life. The Catholic priest's name was Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), and he was a son of a former Archbishop of Canterbury, Edward White Benson.
David and Jean Ingman are a retired professional couple living in Sydney, Australia. They lost their son in 1994, and a series of happenings shortly afterwards convinced them that their picture of reality was incomplete. Twenty years of research and personal experience have followed.
This book deals with the reality of our life after death, not spirit communication, but actual visits with all sensory perception intact. As a result of a lifelong practice of deep meditation, the author projects his consciousness into parallel dimensions and non-physical reality systems while retaining full waking awareness throughout. He probes into the infinite vistas of human consciousness and brings back detailed accounts of his journeys and observations.

The dissociative experience of observing yourself from an external perspective as though your mind or soul had left and was observing your body.

A sensation or experience in which ones self or spirit travels to a different location than their physical body.
The Psychomanteum is a chamber invented by Dr. Raymond Moody, but inspired by the ancient techniques used for 2500 years at the Oracle of the Dead in Ephyra Greece. A visitor to the Psychomanteum often experiences contact with departed loved ones. The Psychomanteum technique involves mirror gazing. You seat yourself comfortably, then relax and look into the depth of a clear mirror without trying to really see anything. Deep relaxation is necessary for this process.
Dr Atwater uses the culmination of her research over 35 years to establish that the near-death phenomenon is not some kind of anomaly, but is rather part of the larger genre of transformations of consciousness. Commonly experienced factors of NDEs:
Experience of god

Meeting their religious avatar (jesus, buddha etc.)
