Mia Feroleto and New Observations are delighted to welcome Peter Panagore to the podcast. They discuss Peter’s childhood experiences of the Divine which culminated in his conversation with God at the age of 20 on a mountain in the Canadian Rockies–it happened after passing over into the realm of death.

Peter is a husband, father, grandfather, a two-time near-death experiencer, storyteller, ordained pastor, writer, author, public speaker, and more. He earned his Master of Divinity at Yale University with a focus on the classics of western mysticism. He served eighteen years as a Congregational community minister in the United Church of Christ, primarily along the coast of Maine.

He’s had two Near-Death Experiences. The first “death” occurred in 1980 from hypothermia while ice climbing in Banff Provincial Park in Canada. He died again from a heart attack in 2015.

Peter wrote about his first experiences in Heaven Is Beautiful. Reach him through his website, HERE.

“In the inner stillness where meditation leads, the Spirit secretly anoints the soul and heals our deepest wounds. In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human success, but rather on how much we have loved.”

— John of the Cross

  1. Thank you! Such a hopeful, comforting discussion at a time when we could all use one. We seem to be so overwhelmed by so many existential woes and sometimes it’s hard to imagine that there’s something or someone out there that’s not an “alien “. But, there’s a whole existence that we’re apart of and dare I say the “unknown” is part of as well. We all have access to our common beginning when we commune with our “beloved”. I don’t know if the aliens Unknown Country focuses on have a spiritual understanding of the All Creator. But I live in constant belief of my heritage that no one can take from me. I look forward to reading more of Rev. Panagore’s work.

  2. Thank you MIASTELLA!

    I found talking with Peter to be extremely uplifting. My personal thinking is God or the Divine created all of the kingdoms and the ETs. When I communicate with them I do bring God into the conversation.

    I ordered Peter’s book just before our interview and look forward to reading it!

  3. Peter Panagore is such an insightful, intelligent, compassionate experiencer, and so abundantly gifted to encourage and enlighten us by his experiences of the Divine. I love him and his journey; and this is surely one of the most magnificent interviews ever to appear on Unknown Country. I thank you forever, Mia, from my heart.

    1. Thank you Michael, from my heart to yours. I was in such an elevated state during and after this talk with Peter, it made my day. We will do it again for sure.

  4. Beautiful deep and thorough discussion. Being one of the ‘hundreds of millions’ who had an NDE, such experiences never leave us and it is so good to have reaffirmation of this awesome experience through such uplifting conversations. Thanks.

    1. CHRISTODEAN, thank you for your comment. NDE provides the opening for us to jumpstart our spiritual selves. I have been forever changed by the experience I recently had with open heart surgery and what unfolded from it. We are spiritual beings living a physical life and capable of so much more depth and understanding of the universe around us.

    1. Thank you JOSEPH KULIK, for your comment. Sometimes it feels like my interviews take place in a vacuum. It is the comments from listeners that makes them real for me.

      This conversation represents where humanity is headed as more and more people understand their spiritual center. It is then that endless possibilities open to us.

  5. The way Peter described dejavu, knowing what is happening a moment before is how I dream. That was very interesting to me.

  6. What a wonderful and uplifting interview. Thanks to both of you.
