NDE Book with the Austrialian Psychiatrists

You may recall that a few months ago I was approached by two Australian psychiatrists requesting my involvement in a new book outlining the NDE experience for Australian physicians and medical professionals.

Yesterday this became a step closer to reality. I will be meeting one of the them (Dr.Mahendra Perera) in his country of origin, Sri Lanka, in early December. We plan to discuss the viability of the project and exactly what my involvement will be. At present it has been suggested that I write a chapter on the history of the NDE phenomenon - applying at the end the suggestions of CTF and ITLAD. I will also be part of the editorial team.

(Indeed I have just received an email from Mahendra - he is travelling on a highway near Ayres Rock!!!)

I am very excited about this. as far as I am aware ITLAD has yet to be published in Australia so this will assist in getting it better known in that country. Indeed this is strange in that I have many readers in Australia and I have had two articles published in Australian magazines.

That is fantastic news, Tony: I do well remember when you first mentioned it, and I knew it would pan out. I think this sort of thing ought to occur more and more often with you in the future, and I would love an essay of yours, or a chapter, to be included in a philosophical text over here in New York, and will continue to seek this sort of opportunity out on your behalf. Wonderful, Tony.

A working holiday to Sri Lanka, eh? What a chore *grin*

Momentum is gathering. YAY!
