Description

Dr. 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, Dr. 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 Dr. Sartori.

When asked about the biggest takeaway from her research, Dr. 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.

Penny Sartori PhD, RGN is an expert in NDEs 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.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"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)

Good but stories are too brief

I like to listen to these NDE stories to put myself to sleep or lift up my mood. I liked the Dr. Long's "God and the Afterlife". This book by Dr. Sartori are also good, but for some reason I don't go back to it as much, maybe the stories are too brief or not as captivating as those told in Dr. Long's book.

Very interesting; scientific approach

Would you try another book from Penny Sartori and/or Julie Maisey?

Yes

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would add more first person accounts- either narrated by the actual person or by another voice over.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Add more descriptive details to the actual NDE experiences.

Was The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences worth the listening time?

Oh yes! This is a very well researched scientific approach.

Six stars!

What made the experience of listening to The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences the most enjoyable?

The content in this book was exceptionally well researched and presented. From the outset Dr. Satori points out that she is not out to prove afterlife in this book, just that the NDE is a real experience, not a hallucination of a dying, hypoxic brain.

What did you like best about this story?

Analysis of countless NDE experiences, and Dr. Satori's reflection on how we deal with death in the west. Her work experience as a ICU/ITU/CCU nurse had provided a perfect vantage point for the observations discussed in the book.

Have you listened to any of Julie Maisey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't. I liked the performance; by the end of the book I considered Julie's voice that of Penny Satori's. This kind of merger is to me a sign of a good performance.

Any additional comments?

Like Dr. Satori suggests, content of this book should be necessary reading for any nurse or doctor in training. Audible should offer a "bonus star", as sometimes the five stars aren't enough.

A Must Read for Anyone Interested in NDEs

Having read much on NDEs from various authors over last forty years, I found this book to be an ivaluable addition. I felt that it started slow, but then it seemed to become better and better as it progressed, never letting up. I appreciated the specific points the author chose to focus upon in later chapters pinpointing key issues.

One very, minor thing I'd point out to the excellent work of the narrator is the pronunciation of Dacher Keltner's name (the "ch" is pronounced like a "k"). His mother, whom I've known for years, actually corrected me on this (smile).

Great book! Thank you!
