Dr. PMH Atwater
Dr. Atwater is one of the original researchers in the field of near death studies. She began her work in 1978, following her own experiences with dying three times. Her contributions to this field is considered one of the best. She uses a systematic method in investigating near death phenomena. Through her efforts, medical workers who routinely deal with trauma and emergencies are now recognizing and recording the NDE and sharing them. In 2001 the medical journal Lancet reported on the NDE for the first time, citing her work to the global medical community. Her book, The Big Book of Near-Death Experiences brought the field up to date globally and was featured in an online version of Newsweek Magazine. The reality of NDE have been verified and confirms its importance in the study of consciousness. Dr. Atwater is the author of 17 books, including, The New Children and Near Death Experiences, and Children of the Fifth World: A Guide to the Coming Changes in Human Consciousness.
