Rev. Sharon Ghamari-Tabrizi, PhD In An Explosion of Being, Doug and Barbara Dillon take the reader step by step through a fascinating journey of exploring paranormal states of consciousness. They judiciously confess their skepticism and growing confidence in their experiences with spirit-guided automatic writing.The Dillons are plainspoken and frank, alternately cautious and enthusiastic. This is spooky and enthralling true-life stuff. Isabel Durand Osth Florida USA I've always been intrigued by occurrences that defy a definitive explanation. This was one of the reasons that prompted me to read Doug and Barbara Dillon's An Explosion of Being. The book is the true story of a family of five who, from their completely normal central Florida home, begin an amazing journey into the world of the paranormal. The story is told from two points of view, with alternating chapters written by Doug and Barbara. It begins with a car trip to the spiritualist town of Cassadaga. This easy, ambling trip is a foreshadowing of the incredible, sometimes frightening, but always fascinating journey into the realm of the unknown. Invitingly and beautifully written, the story takes the reader through almost a decade of discoveries, encounters, experiences, and insights that, in Doug's own words, make us "stand back and question the very nature of physical existence." The authors take the reader into their world, with generous hospitality, much like a couple of good hosts. Their courage in sharing their personal, detailed stories makes this book an inviting read. Theirs is a riveting account of a contemporary family that did not look away from the unexplained, but instead was willing to ask questions and look deeper into the mystery of existence. It is a good and memorable read.
