Overview

By relating one man’s amazing tale of triumph over death on multiple occasions, this book brings a fresh perspective to near death experience literature. David Bennett, once a brash young commercial diver whose personal philosophy was “cut your way through life to survive,” was caught in a violent storm off the California coast one night where he drowned. While technically “dead,” he met beings of light, relived his life, and peeked into his future, resulting in a complete paradigm shift for him. Later, he discovered he had stage IV lung and bone cancer—so advanced that his spine collapsed. Miraculously, he survived once again, and this second close call taught him even more about living, loving, and how to find purpose in his life. Voyage of Purpose brings readers right into the heart of the near-death experience, including the sensations of dying, being surrounded by the light, and meeting the Soul Family. Part memoir and part guide for achieving spiritual growth, this book shows how to integrate the most traumatic of incidents into one’s spiritual path in order to live a more meaningful life.

Totally engaging in candor and truth, totally inspiring in the outcomes of the struggles. Voyage of Purpose is the real deal." —Howard Storm, author, My Descent into Death: A Second Chance at Life

"A raw and honest travelogue of a man. . . . What he went through is the stuff of miracles; what he learned along the way is a message for all of us - about spirituality, purpose, and the reality of unconditional love." —P.M.H. Atwater, LHD, author, Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story

"Exceptionally beautiful and well-written . . . David's experience is dramatic, as is his cure from what should have been a fatal cancer. . . . [Voyage of Purpose] exudes an abundance of wisdom." —Dr. Jeffrey Long, radiation oncologist and nationally recognized expert

    This is a must read book!

    Dave and Cindy put a lot of time and effort and energy and Heart into this book, and it shows! Dave's experiences were quiet a challenge and brought to Light (pun intended) the solid golden core of this amazing human being. We all face challenges in our lives, it is why we are here. However, sometimes our challenges overwhelm us, or cause us to doubt ourselves. Dave's words of wisdom guide us towards using our challenges as an awakening to our own truth and Light.
    Thank you Dave and Cindy.

    A journey worth taking

    David and Cindy Bennett's book Voyage of Purpose is a spiritual tour de force, filled with the heart-wrenching challenges of David's life and his struggle to find meaning and peace. He drowned in the Pacific's cold and violent waters, and in his ensuing near-death experience he met his guides, underwent a life review, and was given knowledge and unconditional love. The hard edges of his macho personality softened. He realized that life was not a battle to be won, but a jewel to be treasured. Afterwards, using his gifts of acceptance, tolerance, and truth as touchstones for living, he went deeper on a sacred journey, where he found his connection to the Infinite still intact. Here David found the strength and courage to survive the unthinkable, stage four lung and bone cancer, a collapsed spine, and, later, neck. Sprinkled throughout with little-known wisdom from the ages, this book will touch and teach you, make you laugh and cry, with its simple yet profound message. The purpose of our own voyages is to learn how to always hear Spirit's voice and see its signs and also to stay in humility and thankfulness, despite outward circumstances. Using gratitude and prayer, visualization and trust, David followed his inner compass and mastered his healing voyage.
