Editorial Reviews

Review

"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. --Kristine Morris, ForeWord Reviews (Awarded 5 Stars)

An Upraised Chalice sets the tone for anyone ready for their own journey of discovery. Those who would drink from O Neil s chalice of understanding will find its contents full and complex. Near death encounters, a travelogue to the world's spiritual places and their impact on his life and understanding make for a fascinating blend of self-inspection, pilgrimage, and revelation that holds many possible truths that will resonate with many readers. O'Neil's search in a way can be identified as the modern dilemma of 'everyman': "There is a growing sense among many that something major is missing in our civilization - a lack of moral compass, a lack of direction. Many are looking for answers." And the crux of living lies in these questions: "The years turn into decades and sooner or later, (hopefully later) sickness or accidents happen and all are again confronted with the big questions: Why? What's next? What has this life that I've lived been about? As one begins to consider their own eventual departure: What have I been able to do to make things a little better? What have I passed along to make others' lives more beautiful?" --D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

The remarkable story of a lifetime quest by a modern-day mystic of his world travels and then integrating his experiences back into professional life in America. But what is really interesting here are the practical disciplines that he incorporated into his life that paved the way for his survival in multiple near-death experiences. A fascinating and thought-provoking read. --David Tame, author The Secret Power of Music and Beethoven and the Spiritual Path

About the Author

Gene O Neil is a teacher, builder and flight instructor. He is a family man and has long been a student of life. His background is as unusual as his book. After growing up with faint memories of previous lifetimes, and an unending urge to remember what it was that he was supposed to do, he embarked as a young man on an epic journey from which he did not know (or care) if he would return. These experiences, some of which were quite extreme, are detailed in this story and set the tone for the integration of a life filled with the teachings of the great masters known as The Brotherhood of Light.
When he returned to the United States 17 months after he left on his quest, he resumed his studies at the university and learned how to fly. He became a professional pilot and balanced that time in the air with building a self-sufficient homestead in the Green Mountains of Vermont a passive solar home powered by a hydro-electric plant. It was here that he has raised his family and hosted meditation retreats for 25 years. This period was punctuated with multiple near-death experiences and other mystical encounters. Aside from being a pilot, builder and cabinetmaker, he designed and built a state-of-the-art solar aquaculture facility that received national attention. He was asked by the United Nations to bring this design to developing countries.
After a lifetime of extraordinary adventures in studying and experiencing first-hand the teachings of the Great Masters of east and west, he wrote it all down so that his children and all others might benefit.
