This week I am talking to Janet Elizabeth Colli about her book ‘Sacred Encounters: Spiritual Awakenings During Close Encounters’.
Sacred Encounters is the culmination of 13 years of research bringing together the psychology of close encounters, spiritual experience, and ultimately— enlightenment. Sacred Encounters reveals startling evidence that the enlightened gurus enshrined in Sufi, Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions communicate with otherworldly beings, and explores the potential that a current surge of “subtle realm” encounters by Westerners is preparing the modern world for our next evolutionary leap. Dr. Janet Elizabeth Colli presents case studies such as “Hayley,” whose close encounters unveil the hidden dimension surrounding us—the realm of angels and aliens. Trace Hayley’s development as she overcomes posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to become a gifted interspecies communicator. Discover the pivotal role so-called aliens are playing in the transformation of human consciousness—from those who are living it, firsthand.
