About the Presenter
Born in Twin Falls, Idaho, Atwater married young and became a mother of three, Sunday School teacher, secretary, and prize winning cook. A handwriting analysis in the mid-sixties led to a complete career and life-style change. She was redirected into public service and innovative project development and analysis.
Paralleling this change she began intensive research into paranormal and altered states of consciousness. With a professional background in hypnotic past-life regressions, sensitivity work, dehaunting houses, and mediumship, she came to specialize in aura massage, astrology, numerology, dream and symbol interpretation, rune casting, divinatory and earth energy sensing.
1977 set the stage for severe health traumas resulting in death and the near-death experience phenomenon, three times in three months. The following year, in an effort to understand what had happened to her and was still happening, she began to seek out and interview other near-death survivors.
She is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978, and is a pioneer in subjects like near-death experiences, the after effects of spiritual experiences, transformations of consciousness, reality shifts, future memory, and modern generations of children and how they differ from previous generations.
Her initial findings about the aftereffects of near-death were published in Vital Signs magazine, 1981-85, and later became “COMING BACK TO LIFE: THE AFTER-EFFECTS OF THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE”. After over fifteen years of intensive research, interviewing over 3,000 near-death survivors, her book “BEYOND THE LIGHT, WHAT ISN’T BElNG SAID ABOUT THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERlENCE”, represents the most complete compendium yet done of the phenomenon, its aftereffects and implications.
An international authority on near-death states, she has served two terms on the Board of the International Association for Near-Death Studies. With the help of David Morgan, she produced the world’s first positive/negative, 360-degree compendium of the entire near-death phenomenon. Titled “THE COMPLETE IDIOTS GUIDE TO NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES,” this 480-page Macmillan edition debuted March/April, 2000. It is now been renamed as “The Big Book of Near-Death Experiences.”
Atwater has received numerous awards during her life. She earned her Letters of the Humanities (L.H.D.) doctorate from the International College of Spiritual and Psychic Studies in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in 1992; and was awarded an honorary Ph.D. in Therapeutic Counseling in March 2005, from Medicina Alternativa Institute. Also in 2005, the International Association for Near-death Studies (IANDS) presented her with an Outstanding Service Award and the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists awarded her a Lifetime Achievement Award. She has been a Prayer Chaplain since 2004.
Some of her findings have now been clinically verified in prospective studies, including “The Lancet” medical journal 12-15-01, in a paper by Pim van Lommel, a Dutch cardiologist. She has lectured at the United Nations and at many other international gatherings, large and small. Her writings have appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers. She has been on such television talk shows as Sally Jessy Raphael, Larry King Live, Entertainment Tonight, Regis & Kathy Lee, Geraldo, and The Shirley Show in Canada.
