What We Say as We’re Nearing Death

What last words tell us about life, death and consciousness.

When her father became terminally ill with cancer, linguist Lisa Smartt began transcribing his conversations and noticed that his personality underwent inexplicable changes.

Smartt’s father, once a skeptical man with a secular worldview, developed a deeply spiritual outlook in his final days ― a change reflected in his language.

Baffled and intrigued, Smartt began to investigate what other people have said while nearing death, collecting more than one hundred case studies through interviews and transcripts.

In this groundbreaking book, Smartt shows how the language of the dying can point the way to a transcendent world beyond our own.

Conte Bardo Book Lisa Smartt

Conte Bardo

A Song Between Lives

Channeling or merely the imagination?

One July morning as Lisa Smartt sat at her kitchen table, she heard these words, “I am Carlos Pena. I have come to tell my story. I am from Cadiz, Spain from the days when Flamenco was a pure art and La Culebra danced to my songs in the cafes of the gypsy tenements.”

Over the course of four days, Lisa could not pull her hand from the page as Carlos dictated his story.

He shared the tale of a gypsy singer caught in a life between lives for murders he committed—and the surprising redemption he finds.

Was the story channeled from spirit, or is it merely the imagination at work? Decide for yourself where the voices come from as you enjoy this lyrical novel about near death experiences and reincarnation.

Veil Book  Lisa Smartt


Poems from Across the Threshold

"Once light always light

I am still as you can feel beside you

Guiding, incendiary joy"

A few weeks after her father’s death, linguist and educator, Lisa Smartt, heard his voice asking her to transcribe poems from beyond the veil for her mother and his beloved, Susan, wife of 54 years. While not certain if the voice she heard was truly that of her father, she suspended disbelief and listened attentively, and wrote down everything he said. The result is this beautiful collection of poems in celebration of life and love.

Lisa explains, “I am undecided if these poems come from my father truly or are merely inspired from the collective unconscious, but either way they hold deep beauty and the possibility for greater healing and connection in times of loss.”

Evidence of the Afterlife

The Science of Near-Death Experiences 

With Dr. Jeffrey Long

“There is currently more scientific evidence to the reality of near death experience (NDE) than there is for how to effectively treat certain forms of cancer,” states radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long. In 1998 Dr. Long and his wife, Jody, began the Near Death Experience Research Foundation with the goal of creating a forum for near death “experiencers” to share their stories.

Grounded in first-hand evidence culled from over 1,600 verified NDE accounts, Evidence of the Afterlife presents the strongest argument yet for the underlying truth of those who have died and returned to share their tales.

The Powerful Effect of Near-Death Experiences on People's Lives - In "Closer to the Light", Dr Morse explored the near death experiences of child survivors. Now he presents testimony from adults which he believes may serve to alter people's views on death and dying.

The book sets out to prove that those who return from the brink of death are profoundly changed for the better, both spiritually and physically, for the rest of their lives; that they are healthier and have fewer psychosomatic complaints, are happier psychologically, and have stronger family ties, more zest for living, a greatly diminished fear of death, and a significantly increased psychic ability.

Closer to the Light Paul Perry Dr. Melvin Morse Book

Closer to the Light ..........................

With Dr. Melvin Morse

The skeptics have had their say; now listen to the experts. In hundreds of interviews with children who had once been declared clinically dead, Dr. Morse found that children too young to have absorbed our adult views and ideas of death, share first-hand accounts of out-of-body travel, telepathic communication and encounters with dead friends and relatives.

Finally illuminating what it is like to die, here is proof that there is that elusive "something" that survives "bodily death."
