"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence"
. -Albert Einstein
What is an Extraordinary Experience? Extraordinary Experiences are those which occur beyond our five senses, time, and space. Such occurrences include Near-death Experiences, Out-of-Body Experiences, Past-life Memories, Paranormal Encounters, Contact with Non-Human Intelligences, Telepathy, Pre-cognition, etc. Regardless of the type of extraordinary experience, all are utterly transformational. They enable us to more deeply understand reality and realize that numerous commonalities exist among all phenomena. It is only when we open our minds and hearts to embrace experiences which lay beyond our three-dimensional world, that we may begin to explore the very nature of consciousness.
This blog will serve as the main site for our upcoming book:
