I am a journalist and documentary maker with a passion for peace and narratives drawn from oral history. In a world of globalised, homogenised and fragmented content, I believe the singular voices of truth-seeking documentary makers and bloggers are becoming increasingly important. I am also a mother,  yoga fan and dedicated dachshund owner.

    You are so eloquent and refined in the face of a situation that many would greet with obscenity and victim statements. Your perceptions of love during that NDE sounded like the nurses had given you Ecstasy but they also matched those of someone entering a much higher consciousness where love is said to be the ultimate reality of the universe. I want to say that you deserve that experience because you are such a loving and open person but it somehow doesn’t sound right…In fact you are the last person I would have imagined to have had a brain aneurysm. Some kind of weird fluid imbalance where the two fishes swam in opposite directions and collided…. I could understand that. But not something so heavy and a the core of your nervous system. I’ve just re read the Tibetan Book of the Dead at the same time as I was reviewing reports of NDEs on You Tube. There are some striking similarities in what educated western people report today and the incredibly esoteric descriptions of the ‘bardos’ that the Tibetans wrote 2,000 years ago. Farkk….is that where you went? Anyway…I hope you’ve made a full recovery and that the love that came out of that experience stays with you.
