A Manual for Developing Humans

Join Karen as she guides you in the human experience and shares tools to ease the

journey. Friday, November 17th 7-9pm. Offering $20 Soulful Awakenings 1700 Main StreetLake Como, NJ.

In her latest book, A Manual for Developing Humans, P.M.H. Atwater one of the pioneering

researchers of the Near-Death Experience (NDE), points out that life is “inherently

paradoxical.” She defines paradox as “parallel principles that have crossed over.” For

example, “The only way you can keep love is to give it away.” Most people view death as a

very negative experience, but as Atwater found out, there’s a paradox here, too, since her

three near “deaths” served her in a very positive way awakening her to a new reality.

This latest book touches upon all the things she was awakened to during her NDEs and in the 40

years of research that followed. This manual covers every conceivable subject relating to

the human experience – intelligence, intuition, dreams, auras, synchronicity, health,

nutrition, emotions, fears, pain, parenting, sex, soul mates, science, racism, terrorism,

prophesies, planets, feminism, justice, politics, economics, messiahs, catastrophes, war,

solar cycles, free will, death, enlightenment, quantum medicine, you-name-it and Atwater

has some very interesting, intriguing ideas and suggestions about it.

Karen reviewed this book in November 2016, as it was going to print. She will discuss some

of the main points Atwater mentions. To make this workshop more interactive, please print

a question or problem that you have about becoming human and email to Karen at As many questions as possible will be considered by Karen in

answering according to the perspective of PMH Atwater’s newest book.

Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD, LCSW, LMSW, CADC, ACMHP has shared her clinical expertise

for thirty years in her private practice by lecturing throughout the United States on

dysfunctional and addictive homes, disassociation, grief, and loss from a Jungian

psychological perspective. Since 1995, her Interfaith ministry is to be actively involved in

Spiritual Psychology, specifically in naming spiritual experiences and working with chronic

grief. Chronic grief has led her to the bi-directional system of the vagus nerve/silver cord in

and out of the body. While physically important, it is also through this nerve that we receive

intuitive and spiritual messages. Her books, You’re Not Finished Yet, and Grandma, What is

a Soul? are available through, Kindle while Karen’s latest book published in

September, There’s No Health Without Mental Health: Breathing and Learning Through the

Vagal Nerve is available for purchase by contacting 732-530-8513.
