Near Death Experiences

Love is the Link

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 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.
