Speakers at Connecting for Change (2013)

Ptolemy Tompkins is the author of “Paradise Fever”, “The Modern Book of the Dead”, and “The Divine Life of Animals”. He worked extensively with Dr. Eben Alexander in the preparation of the initial edition of Dr. Alexander’s Proof of Heaven, as well as the expanded edition coming out in October 2013. His writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Utne Reader, The Best Spiritual Writing, and The Best American Spiritual Writing.


Ptolemy speaks with Joanna about Near Death Experiences: a new way for describing the NDE experiences; the archetypal charge of visionary narratives; a new worldview emerging; the story-like aspect of reality; the challenge of the transpersonal.
