Biographical/Historical Note

Kenneth Ring was born in San Francisco on December 13, 1935. In 1963, he graduated with his Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Ring took his first teaching position as an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Connecticut, where he remained as a faculty member until 1994. Though he retired from teaching at this point, he continued to work at the university as a Professor emeritus until December of 1996, at which point he moved back to the Bay Area of California, where he has resided ever since.

Upon his arrival at UCONN, Dr. Ring was hired as a social psychologist. However, towards the end of the sixties, his interested began to shift towards transpersonal psychology. This shift of focus came to a peak when he discovered Raymond Moody’s best-selling book Life After Death, which galvanized his interest in near-death experiences (NDEs). Noting Moody’s philosophical approach to the investigation of NDEs, Ring concluded that this phenomenon could benefit from greater scientific scrutiny than was then currently being offered in the field. Thus, beginning in 1977, Dr. Ring set about studying NDEs with the aid of graduate and undergraduate students. This period of about a year’s worth of research led to Ring’s first book on NDEs, Life at Death, published in 1980. It was with the release of this book that Dr. Ring declared that “there was no turning back,” he had committed himself to the lifelong study of NDEs.

Ring and other early NDE researchers had formed an organization with the goal of professionalizing the study of these experiences, called The International Association for Near-Death Studies. By the end of 1980, Ring was asked to take over the organization and expand it.

Ring’s main research interest remained NDEs until 1987 when he became interested in UFO encounters, which, he believed, bore striking similarities with the typical near death experience, especially in terms of the aftereffects following both phenomenon. In 1992, Dr. Ring published his research findings in The Omega Project, which emphasized the similarities he found between NDEs and UFO encounters and suggested reasons for the commonalities between the two phenomena.

Dr. Ring then turned his interest back to NDEs, publishing and lecturing until the year 2000, when he published his “farewell address” to the NDE field in The Journal of Near-Death Studies.

Since 2000, Ring has collaborated on a screenplay and has written books on classical music and his memoirs. In 2010, after becoming interested in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Dr. Ring collaborated with a Palestinian colleague to publish a book on the contemporary lives of Palestinians based on collected stories. Most recently, Dr. Ring has been assisting several authors writing their own NDE-themed books, acting as kind of “combination editor, mentor and soi-disant agent.”

Ring has authored numerous books including: Life at Death (1980), Heading toward Omega (1994), The Omega Project: Near-death Experiences, UFO Encounters, and Mind at Large (1992), Lessons from the Light: What We Can Learn from the Near-Death Experience (1998), Mindsight: Near-Death and Out-Of-Body Experiences in the Blind (1999), Psychological Perspectives on Camille Saint-Saëns (2002), and Letters from Palestine: Palestinians Speak Out about Their Lives, Their Country, and the Power of Nonviolence (2010).

Series XIX: Audio Visual Materials

A portion of audio materials, those that pertained to patients, were removed and sequestered into the Restricted series. That is the reason that there is no longer a carton 2 in box 146.
Ring's lectures or audio cassettes pertaining to his books, or conference proceedings, or other non-patient recordings are open.
