P.M.H. Atwater: What is the Meaning of Life?


Life is the Breath of God breathing. As co-creators with the Creator, we experience and extend the self-givingness of that eternal pulse now, always and forever.


~P.M.H. Atwater, L.H.D. is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978. She has written fifteen books on her findings – the last, “Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story,” a wrap-up of her near-death findings along with her theory about transformations of consciousness – covering 43 years of work both with near-death experiencers and those who had an intense spiritual transformation (covering nearly 7,000 child and adult experiencers). Some of her findings in the near-death field have been verified in clinical studies, among them the prospective study done in Holland and published in Lancet Medical Journal, 12-15-01. Her “The Big Book of Near-Death Experiences,” brought the entire field of near-death studies uptodate worldwide, and was featured in an online version of Newsweek Magazine. Her latest, Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience, is a summary of experiencer voices speaking their word, their truth, what they learned.

In 2005, she was awarded the Outstanding Service Award from the International Association For Near-Death Studies (IANDS), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists (NATH), as well as an honorary Ph.D. from a school in Sri Lanka. In 2010, she was also awarded the Nancy E. Bush Award for Literary Excellence and the Lifetime Achievement and Special Services Award, both from IANDS. She has presented her findings for many organizations and schools, including twice at the United Nations, and as a guest on such TV shows as Geraldo, Regis and Kathie Lee, Larry King Live, Sally Jessy Raphael, and Entertainment Tonight. Her books have been published in over 12 countries.
