The Miracle of Death is a true story of multiple deaths in a close-knit family, and the precognitive dreams, visions, profound after-death communications, out-of-body experiences,and synchronistic visionary events that imbued their grief with layers of meaning and spiritual revelation. The sole survivor and narrator is Dr. Betty Kovács, a Western-trained academic who initially struggled to accept realities that ultimately changed every aspect of her life. Weaving personal, historical and mythic perspectives, she shows us that such individual experiences,along with cutting-edge scientific research, support a radical change in the way we think about death and life.
For those either struggling with the loss of a loved one, working with the dying, pursuing a spiritual path or interested in Depth/Transpersonal Psychology, Consciousness Studies, Dreams, Visions, and Mythology – this stirring account is both eye opening and heartwarming.

“Here are the spiritual secrets that the priests of the patriarchy and their drive for power have tried to repress, but which we urgently need at this present moment of evolutionary crisis.”
– Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Ph.D. Sufi teacher and author, Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth
“Betty Kovács gives us not just one but two messages that are vital for our lives and times. First, that our individual mortality is an illusion, for death and birth are a cycle through which life, the sole reality, continues transformed, but unbroken. Two, that as more and more people are turning inward and experiencing the true dimensions of their inner self, a new consciousness is being born on this planet – a consciousness that we are all part of each other and of the cosmos, and that together we can heal the Earth – that we can dance as Betty Kovacs says, the Round Dance. Few things could be more important for us both individually and collectively than understanding these messages.”
