Past News Releases


ASEMC Press announces the May Day release across Amazon.com and around the world of ‘An Upraised Chalice’ (with the sub-title) ‘Adventures and Near-Death Encounters in My Search for the Brotherhood of Light - and what It Can Mean for You.’ New autobiography explores a man’s search for the meaning of life outside of religious doctrine and dogma. The book features multiple near-death experiences and introduces the concept of a ‘Brotherhood of Light’ composed of the great masters and saints of east and west in whose ranks are the principal figures of the world’s religions.

According to J. Mahon at ASEMC Press, “the scientific, real-world background of the author who is, among other things, a family man and a builder as well as a flight instructor, conveys a physically grounded and practical approach to a unique spirituality that some reviewers call remarkable.”

Denis Ouellette, editor of Natural Life News, which is publishing excerpts of this book, stated in his opening, “Periodically a book comes along that is capable of changing people’s minds about Reality. The just-released An Upraised Chalice is one such book. It chronicles the world travels and the inner and outer experiences of the author, Gene O’Neil, from Vermont. Gene includes all the stunning stories, miracles, and near-death experiences that have marked his life, told in an engaging style, filled with pictures taken along the way, and ringing with the truth of experience. With other such books, such as Proof of Heaven and Heaven Is for Real (now a movie), it seems the tide is turning for the mainstream’s acceptance of life after death.”

ForeWord Reviews, awarding the book it’s highest 5 -star rating, says, “’Nothing gets one’s attention like one’s imminent demise,’ writes Gene O’Neil in An Upraised Chalice, a book that chronicles the remarkable travels, adventures, and near-death experiences that have marked his quest to discover the meaning of life. O’Neil’s practical insights, born of experience, cut across religious boundaries to convey a vibrant spirituality in plain, accessible language... O’Neil’s compelling book offers a clear road map for both what he calls the greatest and most exciting journey one can take (the journey within) and the greatest discovery one can make (our true identity as divine love).”

An Upraised Chalice – Adventures and Near-Death Encounters in My Search for the Brotherhood of Light and What It Can Mean for You” ISBN 978-0-9912635-0-9 (print) and and 978-0-9912635-1-6 (eBook) is now available around the world from Amazon, Apple's iStore, and for bookstores and libraries, through Ingram's distribution network.
