I had a near-death experience as a small child
that has greatly influenced my values and choices
all of my life. This book begins with my own
experience, both during the near-death experience
and as I have led my entire life from the perspective
of someone who has had a near-death experience.
One of the choices that I made was becoming
a physician. During the time that I served as
a hospice doctor, I kept a journal of my experience
with my patients and the touching and mysterious
stories that they told me.
Love is the Link combines my own story with a compilation of patients' stories
and my musings about the meaning of those experiences.
Creating the E-book Version of Love is the Link
When the printed version of Love is the Link became scarce two years ago, I
created an audio version of
the book. Honoring people’s stories in the oral tradition really appealed
to me. Since that time, many
people have enjoyed hearing those stories, but I have had requests for a written
version since some
people prefer to read the words rather than to hear them.
Recently, I had a request to use the book as a college textbook for a psychology
class on expanded states of consciousness and they really wanted a written version.
That was the final inspiration that I needed to create an e-book. Through synchronicity,
two months before I had met Linda Scott, the editor and publisher of efrog
press on a shuttle bus from the airport to a tai chi workshop and we “happened”
to talk about her field of expertise—e-book publishing. Hence, when I
received the request for a written version of Love is the Link, the
means to create the e-book were readily available. In the process of creating
the e-book, it was natural to update it with an additional chapter on changes
in the fields of near-death experiences, hospice care, and how my work has evolved
over the past two decades. The e-book version of Love is the Link is
now available on www.amazon.com
and you don’t have to own a Kindle to download the book. There are free
applications to make it available on other readers, including i-pads. And, of
course, if you prefer the oral tradition, the audio version is still available.
Just contact me through this website.
