(E-mailing your account is great! But for research methodology, it is even better if we can tabulate the results from the questionnaire form above)
Experiences may be submitted to us (in order of preference):1. Via the form on the OBERF web site.
2. Via e-mail (see the bottom of each page).
While we greatly appreciate experience contributions, we regret there can be no monetary compensation to contributors. Confidentiality of all communications will be strictly maintained to the extent desired by the contributor..
We have a series of questions, and will also record aspects of the experience not covered by our questions. We expect these will be modified over time to help us more accurately understand NDE and related experiences. Completing these questions will take at least 30 minutes.
Your willingness to share your experience is vital to the success of this project. We express our heartfelt thanks in advance to those willing to share!
