New Thinking Allowed: The Power of the Near-Death Experience with Jeffrey Kripal?

Jeffrey J. Kripal is the J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Philosophy and Religious Thought and former chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Rice University in Houston, Texas.
His books include Kali's Child, Esalen, Authors of the Impossible, The Serpent's Gift, Mutants and Mystics, The Supernatural (with Whitley Strieber), and Secret Body.
Here he explains the significance of 
Elizabeth Krohn's near-death experience.
He points out that simply reading or talking about such matters helps to create a "safe space" for others who may be having similar experiences.
He notes that her experience, like most NDEs, was colored by her family and religious background.
He also describes Eric Wargo's concept of "time loops", and suggests that this model allows for a wide variety of phenomena otherwise thought to be "paranormal".
