Over four decades, Nancy Evans Bush, MA, has built a reputation as a trusted pioneer in research of distressing near-death experiences, those which are not peaceful but are frightening or even hellish. Her own NDE at 28–a disempowering NDE of the Void–overturned everything in her sense of reality. In this anticipated third book, she talks for the first time about her long struggle to make sense of the NDE and also of its reshaped cosmology. Her unexpected, sometimes humorous, often synchronistic discoveries point beyond herself to challenges and reassurance.
She says, “At the beginning, learning about ‘all this’–the spirituality, the consciousness, the science, the psychic elements–was like finding threads of meaning, I thought, if one could only get enough of them to braid together, there would be some understanding to work with.”
“Reckoning” follows the threads of her discoveries about the nature of reality and the role traumatic experience can play in reshaping the way we understand the world and ourselves. Far from leaving her stranded in the terror of her NDE, the discoveries shared here have led to the serenity of her present outlook. Mark Anthony, the acclaimed attorney/psychic, says: “Reckoning is an insightful and uplifting book…destined to become an authoritative classic in the realm of near-death experience literature.”
