About the Author: Alistair Conwell was born in India and grew up in Australia. He has two psychology degrees. He has travelled widely through Britain, Europe, Egypt, the Middle East, Turkey, Taiwan and the Indian sub-continent. During his travels, he learnt various meditation techniques taught by Western, Indian, Tibetan and Vietnamese masters. It was in Nepal, the Himalayan land of mysticism, where he first learnt of the Audible Life Stream and the ancient art of dying while living. He has had articles about the Audible Life Stream published in America and Australia. He has been practicing meditation for over 20 years.
Music and sound have always been recognized as important components in spirituality, but seldom is sound mentioned as a catalyst and gateway into the preparation for dying. Through interesting analysis and real life examples this book skillfully opens those possibilities and inspires the reader to explore the Audible Life Stream as a pathway for more abundant living and conscious dying. In writing this book Alistair Conwell has made an important contribution to near-death literature.

Your words have such lyricism and the great ring of truth about them...I wish you every success with this beautiful work...
—Maggie Hamilton - Publisher Mind, Body, Spirit, Allen & Unwin Book Publishers (Sydney, Australia).
The Audible Life Stream: Ancient Secret of Dying While Living is an excellent, well-written work.
—Nicholas Tharcher - Former Vice-President New Falcon Publications (USA).
I receive many submissions of work in what might loosely be termed new age, or dealing with spiritual material, but I have seen few...in the area of NDE or spirituality as lucidly and convincingly written as yours, in part because you have handled so well the scientific aspects of your theory.
—Rosemary Creswell - The Cameron Creswell Literary Agency (Sydney, Australia).
It is an innovative, thoroughly researched presentation of an overlooked aspect of spiritual enquiry. I can heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a wider lens on matters of the spirit than provided by mainstream teachings.
—Alan Mann - Editor, NOWletter and Capacitie website (Australia).
I highly recommend The Audible Life Stream by Alistair Conwell. I found his book well research, easy to read giving examples from past and present mystical and religious traditions of the Audible Life Stream. In conclusion Alistair Conwell’s book offers insights that we can all relate to and nurture in our everyday lives.
The book was fantastic. Death has never sounded more beautiful (no pun intended!)...Your book made death so attractive that at times while I was reading the book I looked forward to my own physical death. I wondered who I would see, the places I’d go and the music I would hear...The book was an easy read and very informative.
—Monticue Connally - Society of Skeptics and Mystics
I would recommend this intriguing find to anyone wanting a clearer understanding of our living/dying process.
—Rikki Frahmann - Mystic Living Today Magazine
Your new book is quite unique in that it shows us a connection between topics like near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, the big bang, black holes, mysticism, meditation and even superstring theory to name a few... Get this book folks...you won't regret it...
—Jean Adrienne - Radio Host, Inner Speak Soul Adventures

—Andrea Garrison - Radio Host, On-line with Andrea
Impeccably researched and presented, this important book outlines the historical presence of the Primordial Sound Current – Shabd or Nada – as it weaves its way through the ancient teachings and practices of many paths across the planet. Coupled with modern-day case histories of NDE and OBE experiences and scientific research, and the increasingly popular field of sound as therapy, Conwell brings together a convincing argument for survival after death, and this most direct approach to spiritual awakening.
—Leo Drioli - Editor, Innerself Newspaper
Your book The Audible Life Stream is remarkable. There are chapters and passages in it that I would wish to write given the skill and insights you have brought to bear...I did not read a superfluous thought in it.
—Christopher Quilkey - Editor, The Mountain Path Journal (India)
The book is wonderful. It's very well-written and easy to read. I definitely recommend it.
—Dayna Winters - Host, ISIS Paranormal Radio Show
Conwell’s scholarly work of poetic beauty explores and explains the phenomenon of the Audible Life Stream. Sound, as a messenger offering guidance from other worldly realities, is presented as an important element in spirituality. Perfecting a contemplative meditation technique, thus seeking a path awareness which calls out from within, the reader is encouraged to explore the quest for adeptship in this inspirational book. Testimonials from those who have had out of body and near death experiences, quotations from classical religious texts and support from the principles of quantum physics are all a part of a wide array of evidence presented to support the potential for the expansion of individual consciousness in attunement to the sounds which reverberate all around us always. Readers who are facing the grieving process as well as those who seek understanding and a peaceful acceptance of the inevitably of death will be especially uplifted by this highly original volume. It has an intriguing subtitle, Ancient Secret of Dying While Living.
—Dikki-Jo Mullen - Parapsychologist, spiritual counselor and author of “Koo Hollie and the Corn Goddess Chronicle”
It is well-written, powerful, important...
—Miguel Connor - Host, Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio Show
This book addresses the most uncomfortabe subject in human existence, death and dying. However it differs from others by looking at how the process of dying can be the most potent for spiritual awakening and how we can actually bring that experience into our way of life rather than our death. There is an astounding amount of information within the pages but all is written in a clear and concise way so that the reader isn't too overwhelmed or the victim of condescension.
—Zoie Coggins - Kindred Spirit
...a very interesting and enlightening approach to the realization of, and identification with, our most inner essence, and what that provides for one’s outlook on life and the universe as a whole. Nicely done!
—Stephen M. Nanninga - www.cosmiclight.com
The book is fascinating…those who want to learn more I would recommend you pick up a copy of Alistair Conwell’s book…
—Bob Ginsberg - Host of the Signs of Life radio show.
