Throughout history, people have reported spiritual experiences that we now identify as out-of-body experiences or OBEs. In recent times, modern researchers like Robert Monroe have pioneered the scientific study and practice of OBEs. Increasingly, people are remembering spontaneous OBEs, especially from early childhood. Also, OBEs are a typical feature of near-death experiences and have been described as beautiful, painless and ecstatic. This is the comprehensive manual for inducing out of body experiences and managing the experience Peterson not only explores the stages of his own development, but, also, concludes each chapter with a specific exercise that takes you to the next level. From wiggling out of your body for the first time (the author did a back flip his first time) to travelling through other realms and dealing with your "e;encounters,"e;, this is one of the most practical, step-by-step guides to OBEs available. He clearly demonstrates out this consciousness-expanding experience is accessible to anyone willing to make the leap into the great beyond.
