Biography & Resources

 
 

A neuropsychiatrist and fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Peter Fenwick is a leading clinical authority on near-death experiences. He has analyzed more than 300 of these life-altering events in the course of four decades of research and is highly regarded both by medical colleagues and by the media for his knowledge of this subject.

In 1996, Dr. Fenwick became a consulting neuropsychiatrist emeritus to the Epilepsy Unit at the Maudsley Hospital, which he ran for twenty years. He is also chairman of the Scientific and Medical Network, a group of doctors and scientists seeking to deepen understanding in science and medicine by fostering intuitive as well as rational insights. He has had a longstanding interest in brain function, the relationship of the mind and the brain, and the “problem” of consciousness. He has an extensive research record and has published over 200 papers in medical and scientific journals on brain function and also several papers on meditation and altered states of consciousness.

With over 240 papers in medical and scientific journals to his credit, Fenwick has also coauthored three popular books with his wife, Elizabeth Fenwick: The Truth in the Light (1997), Past Lives: An Investigation into Reincarnation Memories (1999), and The Hidden Door: Understanding and Controlling Dreams (1999).
