Reviews of The Life That Never Ends

Having read several books, over many years, on the afterlife and earthly experiences of it, “The Life That Never Ends” is one of the best. The sincerity and authenticity of the contributions, over six easy-to-read chapters, gives an uplifting and optimistic message that there is no death, and especially to those new to the subject of psychic experiences.  – Jill Woods

I found this a most interesting and enlightening book. Reading others’ spiritual encounters and experiences upholds my own belief that we are connected in more than the purely physical. It illustrates that our love for each other and our animals is a bond which holds fast at all times, and is a great source of strength and support… This is a sincere anthology, fascinating and sometimes very humorous. – Joy Harris

It is beautifully presented and a pleasure to hold. – Robin Goodman


Living in the Mystery: Between Head and Heart

Jan Arriens

Our most recent publication is Living in the Mystery: Between Head and Heart by Jan Arriens, a memoir examining the conflict that mystical experiences can pose for us all: the tension between rationality and intuition, and between scepticism and hard-to-explain experiences.

His experiences, including the awareness of the other when working with prisoners facing execution, throw up questions about perception, consciousness and the nature of reality.  Does our consciousness extend beyond the individual, and form part of an interrelated whole?  Do such experiences suggest a wholly different realm of consciousness?

The sense of connection with a level of reality beyond the individual is where we encounter love, compassion and awe – and also confront doubt. It is, Jan concludes, through this sense of awareness that we are in touch with the mystery at the heart of our existence.
