by Allison Orton Near Life Experiences reflects the authors lifetime awareness of the fact that there is more to existnce than their appears to be. Since a very young age, she has always sought the unspoken messages. When she started experiencing what she couldnt easily share verbally with others, a deepening of inner sensitivities developed. As she matured, she recognized that this was not an isolated experience; however, there never seemed to be open communication about it. Near Life Experiences is designed to present others with an arena, a portal through which to view ones own experiences and to bring them into the light of openmindedness for others. It is only through this kind of vulnerability that the benefit of this work can be reaped by all.
