One of the internet's most comprehensive sites on the near-death phenomenon!

An international authority on near-death states, Dr. PMH Atwater, L.H.D. uses the culmination of her research 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. She combines her 38 years of near-death research with what she was doing in the 60s and 70s, experiencing, experimenting with, and researching altered states of consciousness, mysticism, psychic phenomena, and the transformational process, to reveal what transformations of consciousness really are, why we have them, and where they lead us. This lifetime endeavor covers over 43 years of work, involving nearly 7,000 people. Her meticulous and unique protocol gives validity to what she has discovered, and verified, about the percentage worldwide of people who have undergone near-death experiences.

PMH Atwater
NDE'r, prolific NDE author, NDE researcher

Most of us have heard of PMH Atwater, the internationally recognized researcher of the near-death experience. During her three NDEs in 1977, PMH received spiritual guidance to do the research she has done and to get the word out. She has more than fulfilled her promise, having written more than 14 books about the near-death experience, drawing on more than 3,000 adult and 277 children’s NDEs. She is a leading authority on Indigo children, and the author of the well-known “Big Book of Near-Death Experiences,” an  encyclopedic overview of the NDE. PMH is also the recipient of awards for literary excellence and for achievements in near-death research. Her books are available in France, Russia, Poland, Norway, Portugal, Brazil, Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Bulgaria.
PMH’s most recent book, published earlier this year, is A Manual for Developing Humans, which explores the conscious, subconscious and superconscious aspects of such topics as…how the microcosm reflects the macrocosm, the uses of the mind, developing and using intuition, interacting with spirit beings, meditating, bending time, rethinking money and how to take out-of-body trips. Join us as we journey with PMH into the NDE world as she has found it.

A Manual for Developing Humans Workshop
with PMH Atwater


Learn how to use your mind, develop and use intuition, understand color, sex, relationships, children, how to take out-of-body trips, interact with spirit beings, meditate, bend time, rethink money, and more with PMH Atwater.

In her third near-death experience, PMH Atwater was told by “The Voice Like None Other” to become a researcher and then to write three specific books. The result: she became one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, wrote 15 books on the subject, translated into 12 languages, and toured the world – inviting people to reconsider what they think they know. Her work is legendary. What she discovered continues to challenge science - while enabling experiencers to better understand and handle the pattern of psychological and physiological aftereffects.

A Manual for Developing Humans is the third book she was told to write during her third near-death experience. Written in a 5th dimensional format and featuring 28 thoughtform drawings, it covers the basics of life, everything you need to be fully you, all that you can be. Among its many subjects are how to use your mind, develop and use intuition, understand color, sex, relationships, children, how to take out-of-body trips, interact with spirit beings, meditate, bend time, rethink money, and much much more. In ancient times “Hu” was recognized the sound of God; “Hu-man” meant God-Man, God-Woman. Literally, we are each a god in the making. It is time, time for all of us to know thyself, love thyself, be what we were born to be. 

After a discussion of mission, what we believe our job in life is, simple easy exercises from the Manual will be experienced. Q&A follows.

Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience

Appearing in the MARCH 1, 2015 edition of:

Stacks Image 911

Stacks Image 826

What has been missing from my work, from everyone else's work, from personal stories, from those who interpret personal stories, from experts in religion and spirituality, from the news media, the scientists, the grief-stricken, and the born again . . . is the voice of the collective . . . inside what we all seek to describe. What lies at the heart of near-death experiences? A God that in ways beyond description, smiles at you. Not the God of holy writ, but a Sourceplace--an all-encompassing Oneness, Allness, that, as It breathes, moves skin and bark and wings and stars and babes and rivers and comets and dreams and faces . . . as well as the mustard on your hotdog. The book you have before you releases that collective voice, the sum of millions of people--worldwide--who speak as one. It is nothing less than the proof that everyone on planet Earth, in their own heart, seeks to have: that God exists.

t the very time that this new, revised edition was being released in January 2013, an announcement was made of a scientific study that verified the premise of future memory. Unbeknownst to the author, that scientific study was originally inspired by an earlier edition of her book, “Future Memory.”

PMH Atwater's groundbreaking contributions continued with Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story, examining the phenomena of:
  • Group experiences
  • “Heaven” and “Hell”
  • "Light" encounters
  • Aftereffects including unusual or amplified sensitivities
  • Spiritual transformations and societal implications
Basing her findings on extensive first person interviews as well as scientific studies of the deeper structures of the brain, Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story is a rational examination of an experience that defies ordinary reason – the first book to tackle this difficult and controversial subject from both the scientific and spiritual perspectives.
NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES: the rest of the story
Still available is PMH Atwater's most controversial book to date that dares to reveal "the rest of the story" about near-death experiences. Uncovering what really happens to children and adults who undergo this phenomenon, Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story combines extensive, objective research with first-person "survivor" accounts, as well as well as an exploration of "brain shift/spirit shift."

The past 30 years have seen a quantum leap in the intuitive, creative, and abstract- thinking abilities of children as well as an unprecedented rise in incidences of ADHD, dyslexia, and autism spectrum disorders. As PMH Atwater explains, we are witnessing evolution at work. The changes in consciousness and brain function evident in these “new kids” signal the widespread emergence of the Fifth Root Race and, fortuitously, coincide with our transition into the Fifth World.
