Darryl E Berry Jr

I'm a long-time researcher of the out-of-body experience and contactee, an accomplished student of A Course in Miracles, and a budding physicist and astronomer. I've helped people to their first out-of-body experience, to a better clarity on and practice of A Course in Miracles, and to better understanding of math, astronomy, and physics. Talk show guests and hosts have found me helpful, informative, genuine, and entertaining. I have two books in print with more on the way.  

United States

My name is Darryl E Berry Jr, founder of Next Density Center. I have a long-time interest in the out-of-body experience, and I orchestrate practical courses and research studies on the topic. My first book, Travel Far, contains several of my out-of-body experience journals (including extraterrestrial encounters). Moreover, it is a comprehensive “how-to” on OBE (also called astral travel). Furthermore, I’ve been a student of A Course in Miracles for about twenty years. I host an ACIM class and study group on Sundays at 2 PM and 8:30 PM (email me for details), and publish books and recordings on the same, including Classes on A Course in Miracles. I’ve been praised for the clarity and accuracy of my teaching.

I’ve graduated Palo Alto College with two summa cum laude Associate degrees. I’m now studying physics and astronomy as a double major at the University of Texas at Austin – class of ’25, and work part-time as a Learning Assistant at UT. I anticipate entering graduate school in 2025 in astronomy/astrophysics. In 2023 I gave my first science talks, on dark matter and dark energy. My future profession will be a math and science tutor and professor, and an astrophysics researcher. I may expand my writing to fiction and other subjects, as well as continuing out-of-body and A Course in Miracles writing and teaching. 

I’ve participated in nearly 50 interviews and speaking engagements, and I’ve worked as a Tutor and Learning Assistant at the college level. I offer in-person and online lectures, workshops, and question & answer sessions. I can be contacted at debj@darryleberryjr.com or via the contact page. I might also be interested in “debating” (which is to say demolishing) more flat Earth believers in flat Earth “debates.”

I taught in the public education system for over 20 years.  During that time I saw students could not concentrate on academics because emotional issues and low self esteem got in the way.  I decided to write a curriculum that helped students get out of this struggle.  

I am currently a school counselor and my curriculum is being used in the school system.  I also work with teens online to help them find their happiness.  This is my greatest acheivement.  

In my free time I enjoy my cat Co-Co, traveling, and spending time at the beach!

The Joy of Imperfect Love: The Art of Creating Healthy, Securely Attached Relationships
Nancy Chadwick

Chicago-based writer Nancy Chadwick’s inspiration comes from nature and meandering through the woods of any forest. Her essays have appeared in anthologies, blogs and literary magazines; her memoir, Under the Birch Tree, and her debut novel, The Wisdom Of The Willow (published in May of 2024) are both published by She Writes Press. 

 

Noted as one of 2024's Most Anticipated Books by the Chicago Review of Books, The Wisdom of the Willow is a metaphorically rich and reflective tale of sisterhood and strength—a story of hope and healing, of the choices that shape our lives, and the challenges we all face as we seek to find our places in the world. It’s told from the POV of four sisters in midlife, each dealing with their own life changes and the illness of their mother. The story takes place from Memorial Day to Labor Day in the summer of 1998, making it a perfect Summer Read. 

 

Nancy can talk about: Why place and home are such important concepts in storytelling; What the personal essay and our natural world have in common; Embedding lessons from the natural world into a fictional story; The symbolism of the willow tree and the inspiration behind it; How trees can keep us, as well as our environment, healthy; Changes to our climate and maintaining our mental health and wellbeing; and the differences and similarities between the craft of writing memoir and writing fiction. 

 

Sample questions include: 

You started out as a memoir writer, writing personal essays, why the switch to fiction? Your first book was about a birch tree, and this book incorporates a willow tree. Usually when we talk about trees, it’s about the mighty oak. Why a willow tree? The story revolves around the lives of four sisters, yet only three of them face life changes. Why include a fourth sister? How did you get involved in writing about the natural world? Why did you choose to have Margaret, the matriarch, inflicted with a terminal illness? What is your favorite genre to write, nonfiction or fiction? Why?

Timely tie-ins for Nancy’s expertise include her pub date of May 7, Mother’s Day 5/12, National Love A Tree Day 5/16, Summer Reads, National Tree Day (July 28), and Sisters’ Day (August 4.)
