Rhea A. White's

"Project of Transcendence"

 

          In her "Dictionary of EHE-Related Terms:  An Experiencer’s Guide," Rhea A. White and co-author Suzanne V. Brown describe what they call a Project of Transcendence:  

After cultivating and nurturing EHEs, they may lead to a new way of being, living, and connecting in the world. This may lead to fresh insights concerning one's life purpose and "calling" that involve aspects that transcend the experiencer's ego and everyday activities and bestow a sense of grace and of doing and living as one is uniquely "meant" to do.  

          On this page, you will find a number of ways to explore Rhea White's life work, her Project of Transcendence, that grew like a giant beanstalk out of her seedling near-death experience when she was 20 years old.  It was that re-formative 'genetic encoding', one could say, of her consciousness that unfolded over the course of the last 50-plus years into this blueprint for a new stage of collective understanding and development to which we as a species are awakening or moving into, one person and one transformative experience at a time.    

          Her life certainly reflects her definition above.  Before her NDE she lived totally for becoming a woman golf professional, circa 1950!  She did not lose that first love, and in fact one of her latter-day superheroes was Tiger Woods.  But "being held in the Everlasting Arms" flat changed all that.  White began her awakening to that MORE that it means to be Human through being introduced into the Larger-Life scope of our truly native existence as spirit beings, which led to "a new way of being, living, and connecting in [this] world," and to an endless abundance of "fresh insights concerning one's life purpose and 'calling'"  transcending the narrow vision of the small ego grown from the soil of the consensus physical reality.  Indeed and as a result of the life-riveting need to understand what had happened to her during that terrible crisis, this woman has enjoyed a rare grace, "doing and living as one is uniquely 'meant' to do."  Thus came into being the Exceptional Human Experience Paradigm.

          White's labor of love is not a  "manual" for how to live but rather the brilliant observations and understanding of a woman who has lived what she speaks from the inside out, from its origin in her near-death experience.  This Big Idea is the imprinting for a fundamental shift in consciousness that, one at a time, we are all undergoing, taking us, as it did her, beyond the boundaries of the physicalistic, authoritarian, death-is-death I(r)Rationality into what she and William James refer to as that "MORE that it means to be human."  White's Great Work shines with this MORE both in her living it and through what she has given us.  

          Her incepting experience took place more than 50 years ago.  For a long time she thought of it as her "accident" that put her squarely on the path to have to make sense of what she experienced during that out-of-time encounter with the Ineffable, who spoke these words to her:  

 

 

          As you explore her work, you will recognize many facets of this phenomenon succinctly outlined in the aftereffects.  Initial research by other scientists into near-death experiences demonstrated these characteristics.  White's research showed that these attributes apply to all types of exceptional experiences, not just NDEs.  She was one of the original pioneers who, as both researcher and human being, was able to grasp the big picture and to convey her and others' -- I want to emphasize, experiential -- knowledge in a context rich with meaning, purpose and direction that potentially applies to all of us as human beings insofar as we come to live out of the MORE that we all are.

Because of her passing, Rhea White's website, www.ehe.org, has been in flux on and off over much of the last year.  White bequeathed this major window into her prolific works to the internationally renowned Parapsychology Foundation.  Through their good graces, using the original web address, it now appears to be re-stabilized online.  Many thanks to the Parapsychology Foundation for this Great Gift!
