Revue de presse

“Nurse Penny Sartori was driven by an experience with a traumatized dying patient to study near-death experiences, not to pursue what might happen in an afterlife but rather to improve what happens in this life.  Her goal was to learn all she could about the dying process in order to help her patients find meaning in their illness and restore a sense of well-being in their lives.  The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences, the fruit of her labors, is an invaluable resource for health care workers, for dying patients and their families, and for all of us who will face death eventually.” 
- Bruce Greyson, M.D., Carlson Professor of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioral Sciences University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA

"With more than twenty years experience of nursing dying people in an intensive therapy unit ,  plus  a  Ph.D. in Near-death Experiences,  Dr. Sartori   is very well qualified to discuss issues of death and dying.   She believes that NDEs provide us with a  greater understanding of the dying process and that care of  terminally ill patients  could be enhanced  if NDEs would more widely studied.  A greater acceptance of the inevitability of death would help the situation of terminally ill people. At present they are increasingly  exposed to  invasive and burdensome treatments  even when  prospects for recovery are recognised as minimal.  This is an immensely  valuable contribution to current debates about patient care." 
 - Paul Badham PhD., Professor Emeritus of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Wales, Trinity, St. David

Présentation de l'éditeur

Penny Sartori is a registered nurse who began researching Near Death Experiences (NDEs) in 1995 after one of her long-term intensive care patients begged her to let him die in peace. The event shook her deeply and eventually led her to enroll in a PhD program to research NDEs. The findings, along with the profound spiritual lessons that she has gleaned from her work, are published here.
During her academic work, Sartori studied three samples of ICU patients during a five year period. The first consisted of 243 patients from the first year of data collection who survived their ICU experience. Of those, two experienced an NDE, and two an out-of-body experience (OBE). The second cohort consisted of survivors of cardiac arrest during the five year period. Of those, 39 patients (or 18%) experienced an NDE. The third cohort consisted of all the patients who experienced an NDE during the five year period. Their stories are captured in her new book.
One patient in particular, patient number 10, stands out for Sartori. “He was in bad condition,” she says. “When we put him into bed he was unconscious and unresponsive. Later he reported an OBE. He was accurately able to tell us which doctor was in the room and what he had said while he was unconscious. He claimed to have met his deceased father and a Jesus-like figure. But the most extraordinary part was that afterwards he was able to use his hand, which had been paralyzed since birth. There is no medical explanation for how that healing occurred.”
When asked about the biggest takeaway from her research, Sartori says, “In medicine, we’re trained to believe that the brain gives rise to consciousness. My research into NDEs has made me question this prevailing paradigm, which admittedly is very widespread. The most important lesson for me has been a deeper appreciation for death and a whole lot less fear and anxiety about it.”
In addition to detailing dozens of case studies, the book also discusses childhood NDEs, differences in NDEs among different cultures, and the after-effects of NDEs--one of which is the inability, in some patients, to wear a wrist-watch.

Ce livre est un témoignage qui sonne vrai! de la part d'une professionnelle qui a vraiment travaillé dur pour son sujet, qui est aussi sa passion.
Une absence toutefois: les expériences de "mort partagées", qui apparemment ne sont pas si rares que ça d'après Moody.

`Learn how to die and you learn how to live.' Morrie Schwartz 21 mars 2014
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Penny Sartori PhD, RGN is an expert in Near-Death Experiences and undertook the UK's first long-term prospective study. She is the author of The Near-Death Experiences of Hospitalized Intensive Care Patients: A Five Year Clinical Study and lectures both nationally and internationally. She currently teaches two courses she has written entitled Death and Dying as Spiritual Transformation and Science, Spirituality and Health at Swansea University. She lives in UK.
Though there are many books about NDEs by individuals who wish to share their insights and other books written by people who have out-of body (OBE) experiences with the same intent, few have studied these phenomena to the extent that Penny Sartori has. This book is more than just a tickler for those who are curious about what NDEs may be: this is a comprehensive study of three groups of patients Sartori studied - those who survived ICU having had a NDE, those who survived cardiac arrest, and a core group of all those who she encountered who had an NDE over a five year period.

Interviewing and working closely with these patients provided Sartori with an immense amount of information that show links among the experiences, commonalities, and the life changes that these patients experienced - unafraid of death, better adjusted to life, diminished anxiety, and the various forms of change in physical status as well as mental status that results in a compendium that becomes as much a philosophical treatise as a scientific examination of a heretofore poorly understood phenomenon.

Reading this fine book restores a sense of trust in the workings of the universe and the place we each fill with our lives here. It is very well written, completely comprehensible, and should be read by all those who fear death or are dealing with a friend or family member in the throes of the fear of dying. Experience it: you will never be the same. Grady Harp, March 14

Great Read 20 mars 2014

Having read many NDE type books as well as taking a death and dying class in college (Phoenix College, ASU) it is from a professional perspective but the individual stories about NDE's is worth the time, effort, and cost of this book. It is about time the medical profession explore and incorporate this information in the field of study.

Well written, objective, thoughtful, compassionate. Fascinating NDE accounts 1 juin 2014
Par Timothy Riso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Penny Sartori's book is the latest in a series of high quality books on the NDE that combine clinical data with careful analysis and a theme that focuses on the author's area of expertise.

In this case, the author combines clinical research with a deep compassion for patients that is manifested in a desire to understand and provide practical help to those who have had NDEs and are adjusting to life in this world again.

There are several examples of NDEs and A very interesting section of the book that describes the author's eventual realization that consciousness is almost certainly separate from the physical brain, and that the consciousness or soul is experiencing the NDE apart from the body as the experiencers claim.

She discusses her own findings in precise, specific detail, and her conclusions are essentially the same as those of Pim van Lommel in "Endless Consciousness" and Sam Parnia in "Erasing Death" - both recent high quality books on the subject - and Michael Saboms 1982 classic "Recollections at Death".

I would have preferred more descriptions of NDEs but that is a small quibble. This book is recommended for those who are new to the subject and those who are interested in the health care aspects. People who are close to death are often left without a listening ear and people who are aware. Sartori makes an eloquent case for addressing those needs.

This book does add to the discussion of duality (body & soul deriving from clearly separate and individual sources). Regrettably it does not offer very much which is new and credible from a factual source. A majority of the work is highly subjective. Though this title does make some important contributions to the subject of reincarnation and what comes "after physical death" and is therefore, a worthy read, personally I wish the author had presented more substantial direct evidence, as in the case of American James Leininger.
