The talk is very approachable and easy to follow. Take the half hour and see...

Travel Far by Darryl E. Berry Jr. book review

“Travel Far” by Darryl E. Berry Jr. is a book about Out-of-Body Experiences (OBE). It was published in the summer of 2015 and is the first book by the author. Darryl sent me a copy of the book for my review. Structurally, the book has two very distinct parts: it starts with a collection of Darryl’s personal OBE accounts, beginning from his first ones in childhood and going through experiences such as meeting the deceased, engaging extra-terrestrials and other strange being, and visits to strange worlds. Part Two of the book is a practical guide to practicing Out-of-Body Experiences. It is longer than Part One and goes over a wide variety of topics. Initially I found the personal OBE accounts in part one intriguing but also confusing. These are not connected much one to another but a collection of stories, some short and some longer. Most are OBE-related and at least one is a UFO encounter. While the content of many of these might be hard to digest, I’ve found that the writing style was very believable, it is written just as I would expect somebody to tell a personal story. Darryl refers to some of these accounts in the second part of the book and in this way the two parts connect. I must digress now and mention that I don’t have any personal experience with OBE, but...
