We're excited to let you know about a new book of essays from Dr. Kenneth Ring!
Dr. Ring is one of the founders of the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS), founding editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies, a long-time researcher into near-death studies, and a popular and much beloved contributor to the Life After Life blog ("Do Our Pets Have an Afterlife?")!

We hope you'll enjoy his wit and intellect as well as appreciate his honesty and willingness to tackle such difficult subjects as modern loneliness, aging, and the right to die. He also brings a lighter note in discussing his experiences of being a professor in the 1970s and his unorthodox research into psychedelics.

Happy reading! - Lisa and Raymond



Kenneth Ring, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Connecticut, the author of five books on near-death experiences (NDEs), including his bestselling Lessons from the Light, and cofounder and first president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS).

In these lively and often witty essays, Dr. Ring, best known for his pioneering work on near-death experiences, reveals his talents as a Kenny-come-lately humorist and would-be man of letters. Now in his mid-80s, Ring also touches on and goes into depth on serious topics, such as dealing with the COVID pandemic, the right-to-die movement, and the epidemic of loneliness. He also describes how he became interested in near-death experiences, and his explorations with psychedelic drugs.

Reflections in a Glass Eye is available on Amazon in paperback. For more information click HERE.

Amazon Review by Nancy Clark:

After reading Reflections In a Glass Eye by one of the most influential near-death experience researchers of all time, Kenneth Ring, PhD, I figured I should tell you how great it is.

Unlike many of his near-death research books, Dr. Ring has now written a book that masterfully draws the curtain on the true nature of his character, his intellect, and his private and public personas.

Humorous anecdotes, poignant encounters, and touching narratives breathe life into this no-holds barred collection of essays that is a joy to read. Kenneth Ring has an amazing gift of writing that touches the reader's heart and delights the soul. I love this book and so will you!
