Words from Neil Helm:
My life changed profoundly when, at the age of five, I drowned in a hot springs in Central Montana resulting in a dramatic Near-Death-Experience (NDE). I have subsequently become a conference speaker, a journal article writer, and a researcher on NDEs.
I have enjoyed a long career in space and advanced communications research in corporate, government, and academic entities for over 40 years. From 1990 to 2008 I directed a space research center at the School of Engineering and Applied Science of The George Washington University.
For my humanitarian efforts that included seminal research and development of the satellite-based global disaster communications system and network and the global search and rescue system and network, both now operational, global systems credited with saving many thousands of lives every year, I was nominated in 1995 for the Nobel Peace Prize.
As Scholar-in-Residence, my goal is to conduct research, assist faculty and students with their research, and support students as they complete their Culminating Projects. I am also keenly interested in the field of transpersonal psychology, currently completing a Ph.D. at Sofia University (California) in this transformational discipline. My dissertation is titled: The Effects of Near-death Experiences on Religious and Spiritual Beliefs. I look forward to teaching transpersonal approaches in this dynamic field of psychology.
