Dr. Janet Lee Mitchell received her Ph.D. from City University of New York in experimental cognition. She did laboratory research on extrasensory perception (ESP) in New York City for fifteen years. She has taught at Yavapai College in Arizona, lectured across the country, appeared on national TV and radio, and written numerous publications on parapsychological topics. She is included in such volumes as “The World Who's Who of Women” and “Contemporary Authors.” Her work is described in some encyclopedias and many other books considering ESP phenomena.
Drawing on knowledge gathered from a variety of different cultures over time, Dr. Mitchell provides one of the most authoritative accounts of out-of-body experiences (OBES) ever written. The material is presented in a manner easily understood by a general audience. This classic 1981 text has been translated into many different languages with hundreds of thousands of copies sold worldwide.
