Many thanks to the Tattered Cover Book Store in LoDo and For Heaven’s Sake Book Store in Lakewood. I had a fabulous week in Colorado connecting with readers of Angels in the OR
I wish I had more time with each group to walk in the mountains, meditate, and have long conversations about spirituality. If one of the messages from the afterlife is to “remind them to go to nature,” then I long to have some events in nature in the future. The events were blessed, and it was wonderful to meet people I know from social media who are working to bring more light to this world. Frequency Riser is a great website and blog which reviews many spiritually themed books, so you might want to check out the link.
I am also grateful to those of you who attended The Second Annual Online Near-Death Experience Summit. I loved those three hours with your questions and the answers from the researchers and near-death experiencers. You can still purchase the 13 hours of interviews, and the replay link of the live stream (which was three hours).
This week I have been resting and contemplating my next project which is a book to help college students succeed and heal from issues that holding them back from being all that they want to be in life. My next book will be more research based and focused on a generation which is completely immersed in social media. If you want to check out an hour long podcast by Richard Grannon on the dangers of social media for this generation, you can click here.
In late August, I will be facilitating a writing workshop at IANDS and partnering with a publisher who will be at the conference to bring you the most up-to-date information about writing and publishing your future books. I’ll also be leading a panel presentation and giving a speech. I look forward to seeing you in Valley Forge.
As an English professor, I know that reading teaches others greater empathy. I read voraciously as a child and teenager and this helped me see from the perspectives of people around the world and those living in different time periods. As George R.R. Martin said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies….The man who never reads lives only one.”
Or, as said another way, “When we pray we speak to God. When we read God speaks to us.” —St. Jerome.
I enjoyed talking on podcasts recently about grief and dying. Part of the beauty of having a near-death experience is being able to support others who have lost someone or are facing death themselves. The Death Dialogues Project is a great podcast. You can check out my interview or one of the other powerful interviews on this podcast. I also enjoyed talking with Nina Impala about grief on her supportive podcast titled Tutoring for the Spirit.
I look forward to seeing you in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Georgia. I’ll announce more dates soon! Much love and many blessings, everyone!
