In this episode we look in depth at the out-of-body experience. What it is, how to have them and why we may want to work at having them.
Robert Peterson has been studying and inducing out-of-body experiences (OBEs) since he graduated from high school in 1979. He graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelors degree in computer science in 1984. While attending the University, he became proficient at out-of-body exploration, while keeping detailed journals of his experiences. At the same time, he did volunteer work for a student-based organization called the Minnesota Society for Parapsychological Research (MSPR), which gave him experience as a “Ghost Buster” before the movie made the subject popular.
Since college, he has had a very successful career as computer systems analyst. He compiled his early experiences into his first book, Out of Body Experiences: How to have them and what to expect which was published in 1997. His second book, Lessons Out of the Body: A Journal of Spiritual Growth and Out-of-Body Travel, was published in 2001. His third book is a novel titled The Gospel According to Mike (2011). His fourth book is Answers Within: How to Use Your Inner Voice for Wisdom, Spirituality and Psychic Awareness (2012).
He just published his fifth book, Hacking the Out of Body Experience: Leveraging Science to Induce OBEs which contains more than 50 OBE induction techniques, and they’re all grounded in science.
He has given OBE lectures for INACS (Institute for Neuroscience and Consciousness Studies) in Austin, Texas and taught a variety of OBE classes. He also has a blog called “The OBE Outlook on Life” at http://obeoutlook.blogspot.com
