This is a powerful memoir of a near-death experience. After a Native American sweat lodge, the author loses control of his body and then his life. He begins a passage that leads to a personal hell. He discovers a way to escape and emerges into an amazing exploration of the soul’s journey. In this intense adventure, there are insights into stages of consciousness and encounters of blissful perfection. This spiritual, inspirational book is meant to be an aid to removing the universal fear of the final journey we are all taking.

“The stories and the pictures are absolutely fascinating. It certainly deserves to be widely read!”
–Dr. Jeffrey Long, M.D., author of Evidence of the Afterlife
“Mr. Kagan has created a sprawling, intensely sensory world. The highly allusive style lends itself well to the book’s marvelous evocation of the heady delirium and urgency of the primary death experience.”
–Abigail Holstein, Associate Editor, Ecco
“The prose is good and strong. I read every word of My Death, wishing there were more.”
–Virginia Barber, literary agent
“The message of the book is deeply beautiful and timely.”
–Janet Mills, Amber-Allen Publishing, Inc.

I was on an airplane at thirty thousand feet and suddenly there was heavy turbulence, throwing the plane up and down. I white-knuckled my armrest. The unpredictable violent jolts were scary. I scanned the other frightened passengers, and then I became aware of a young boy across the aisle. Unlike the rest of us, this boy was laughing and having the best time. While others were holding on desperately, he was joyfully letting go, delightedly dancing with the bounces.

We too have that choice. To realize we are on an endless ride that bounces in and out from concrete time/space to the infinite No-thingness. We have a choice to be at one with what is happening, to deeply delight in the unending Nows.

I've just seen the video and now getting the book. Fascinating, Jerry. I saw you at the Climate play last year and you told me about this but I did not "get" it. I do now!
