Edward is a Workshop leader, Speaker, Author and the Creator of Self-Transformation and a New Consciousness.
In 1979 Edward had a spontaneous transformation which altered his life completely. He later came to call the happening self-transformation. He considers that he died completely and was born anew of himself, bringing forth a new consciousness. Since that occurrence over 30 years ago at age 36, he has been speaking with people from around the world about the possibility of living a life without any violence included; thereby, bringing forth peace on earth.
“It was not a near-death experience. I had earlier in my life experienced three near-deaths, so I could distinguish between those and what was about to happen to me that morning on November 19, 1979. The experience lasted four hours, and during that time it seemed that I was struck by lightning from within. At the end of those four hours, the life I had been living from my ego collapsed into a heap of ashes. From those ashes there was a spark when life and death met. For me, it was a complete death experience. In that split second, the spark was ignited and the result was the birth of a new human being and a new consciousness for earth. I say that I was born of myself.”
Edward now sees and speaks of a world void of violence and suffering and assists others in seeing the possibility of bringing forth a new manner of living. He reaches out to people all over the world via virtual seminars, personal workshops, radio interviews, videos, and social networking. His new book, A New Consciousness Born—You are the Source was published in the spring of 2010.
In seeing a possibility for a new consciousness, Edward states that we are now in a “rat race.” Will the evolution of a new consciousness on earth win the race, or will we continue down the path of self annihilation with our centuries old ideas and beliefs in the present consciousness? Will we transform our lives, thereby transforming the planet, or we will self-destruct? He states that is a question every person on the planet needs to ask of themselves.
Edward has never read any books about or had any interest in the paranormal, spiritual, new age, or studied any Eastern religions or philosophies. At the time of the experience, Edward did not know what happened to him. He spent the next couple of years going to several different leading edge workshops to see if anyone else had discovered what he had. He found no one. Everything he has discovered, he discovered from the original source—himself.
Edward was encouraged by some of the people he met to write about his transformation. He was then told about Dr. Kenneth Ring and sent the depiction of his death experience to him. Dr Ring was considered a brilliant psychology professor at the University of Connecticut and had conducted years of research into near-death experiences. Dr. Ring read the account of Edward’s death experience and stated that somehow Edward had spontaneously experienced what was written about in the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Dr. Ring put Edward in contact with Dr. Bill Roll who was then living in Georgia. Dr. Roll is a graduate of the University of California, Berkley, and attended Oxford University where he conducted research in parapsychology. He is a noted psychologist and parapsychologist and owns the Parapsychological Institute Services in Georgia.
Edward traveled to Georgia where he met with Dr. Roll at his home. After reading the account of Edward’s death experience, Dr. Roll began to edit the work and suggested that Edward write about what led up to that cataclysmic in 1979. After several months of the manuscript passing back and forth, and after many edits, an autobiography of Edward’s life emerged. This autobiography, which Edward says “contains the secret to life,” outlines the detailed events his life from the time of his birth until 1996.
Edward has devoted the last thirty years of his life reaching out to people who are seriously considering the options before them. He has spoken to thousands of people from around the world about “Self Transformation” and the possibility of life without violence. He passes along his message via in-person Workshops, Radio Programs and Interviews, Videos, and an Internet Discussion room, and now in this book, A New Consciousness, You are the Source.
Edward has hosted his own Radio Program on both Phantom Radio and Phaze Radio. He has been interviewed numerous times, including recently on “The People Speak” Radio and “Talking Purpose” and “Never Not Here Radio”.
