"....please everyone, get a copy of Jo's book. I know that the title may put you off a little but please get a copy somehow, your life will truly be enlightened...."


"Hi Joanne,

Just to let you know I am on my second reading of "The Causeway".
I am up to where you meet Mary and sit on that rustic, uncomfortable bench in her mountain garden.
There is something very validating for me in the synchronicity of your meeting Mary in her garden, both in your early reality then in this one.

As far as I can see, the reading of your book should promote some sort of change in the reader.
You simply cannot read this material and go back to sitting in front of the TV as if nothing ever happened.
I feel I should learn as much as I can from your experience and make changes to my way of living that is an expression of that experience.
All very well in theory, but just what are the actual changes to make? This, I'm afraid, is where I come a bit unstuck.
Still I hope in the fullness of time a meaningful path will become apparent.

Thanks again for your insightful book and the huge effort it must have taken to get it to press.

All the best to you and Ross.
Kindest Regards
January 18th 2008"

"What a great insight this little book is - thank you.
Dee read it it too and as it is with all things, it couldn't have come at a better time as Scott's Mum had just passed away and it was a great comfort to she and Scott."

I just thought it would be nice for you and Ross to know that you have helped some people you don't know by sharing your experiences in written form."

There are a handful of books that have touched my life and I nominate ‘The Causeway’ by Joanne Calman one of them. The others are ‘In Tune With The Infinite’ by Ralph Waldo Trine, ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gibran and ‘The Infinite Way’ by Joel Goldsmith.

Each book in its own way was able to awaken something within me that I recognize as a spiritual truth of the wonderful journey that we all face as we go through the experiences here on earth in order to grow spiritually into eternity. With Joanne’s book I not only felt ‘at home’ with the visions that she described in her book ‘The Causeway’ but I was also impressed also with the design of the book itself. The colour used for each page enhances the spiritual experience, the size of the font used for the text made it very easy to read and the pages left blank so that the reader can ponder and make individual notes about the ideas expressed in the book all added to the total experience of the book.

‘The Causeway’ will always remain as one of my ‘special’ books and I unashamedly recommend it to all who are searching for an understanding of what our purpose is on this earth.

May your life and that of you’re your loved ones be filled with peace and rich experiences.

A Kindred Spirit

It was a Friday in May when I entered hospital in preparation to give birth to our third child. In the early hours of Sunday morning that complications set in. I was to fight for my life on three occasions. It was during this time that I experienced what is called a Near Death Experience, not once but on all three occasions.

I received many long-term physical injuries and conditions during this time. It was because of this and due to the confusion that I felt about the birth that I did not at first tell those around me of what had happened. I did however tell my children of my Near Death Experience and
They became my greatest supporters. My two sons wrote the event down as I dictated it to them. Slowly over a period of time, I told others. Thus, a journey began a journey that began with the birth of a baby and ended with the birth of a birth.

"I have not had a near death experience but I can verify the truth in the rest of this book. The deeper suffering she has experienced is evidenced by the far greater spiritual insights and the reader would be foolish not to heed the advice given.

A close observance of human nature combined with a determination has allowed Joanne to successfully adjust to what life has served up." Gerard Kauter

Book Review By Carolyn- Aquarius Rising

Joanne Calman shares with us her fate, her extraordinary experience at near death in her book "the Causeway". I believe Joanne has received her power and her virtue through this experience. In reading her account I think she has been given the profound experience of actually knowing what her purpose is, that is acknowledging, sharing and honoring what is truly noble in the human spirit. Jo shares her vivid experience of the light. The light that does not change that binds us all together, light that is life giving and working for the common good, the light that is within us all, and the light that breaks into a myriad of rainbow colours when confronted with a soul such as Joanne’s. She has worked in the dark to prepare for the new dawn, which awaits us all - in her first book, she shares a situation we all will face one day.


“Joanne’s story will excite and enthrall the reader. I have known Joanne for many years and she has about her an air of profound peace and understanding.
Her detailed account brings comfort, understanding and hope to those who are fearful of what lies beyond this earthly existence.
I am sure you will find that Joanne’s words bypass your mind and bring comfort to your heart and peace and wisdom to your spirit”.

The Causeway

“I have written this to create awareness of what happens when our physical body dies- the great unknown. My wisdom and knowledge comes from what I learnt from the very valuable experience of my Near Death Experience. I hope that my experiences will help others understand the intimate balance between the forces that are seen and unseen in our world. To write the experience down has been the single most difficult thing that I have ever had to do. It has meant the opening of my soul and allowing people to hear and understand a very personal experience.”
