Dr. Colli wrote a book titled book SACRED ENCOUNTERS, and here’s a quote from page 34:
The “subtle realm” is the hidden dimension that shadows the phenomenal world we perceive with our senses. It is the forbidden domain, the realm of angels and aliens. The realm beyond consensus reality.This got my attention, I've been working hard to try and wrap my mind around exactly these hard to grasp concepts.

one hour and 36 minutes long
During the interview we ponder the term “subtle realms” as way to describe the indescribable. We attempt to name a place just beyond our grasp and what it might mean. I asked how her patients report their “altered states” of consciousness. Can you try and describe that realm. And how her role as a therapist attempt to re-access these altered states of consciousness?
During the interview I share a personal experience with, what might be, that very strange ALTERED REALITY realm. And follow it up with a funny dream of the UFO in my brother’s garage. And I talk about a VERY vivid dream that culminates with a blue orb floating above my bed.
Dr. Colli is a therapist, and during our conversation I speak quite openly about my dealings with clinical depression. I was very tempted to edit out this section of the interview because it I talk about some very personal stuff. But I really feel that it’s relevant to some of the bigger questions that we attempt to unravel.
I first heard bout Dr. Colli on an audio podcast by Jeremy Vaini back in June of 2008 on his Culture of Contact show. I listened to it again as part of my preparation for my interview. This highly recommended conversation is linked HERE.
About Dr. Colli's book,
“A transfixing exploration of the human side of alien encounters. Entering into the storied lives of two life-long ‘experiencers’ of alien contact, journeying from Dharamsala to the mists of Seattle, Dr. Colli discovers the most important lesson for humankind comes not from the beyond but from within the heart; that compassion is the foundation for understanding even the most ‘alien’ of experiences.”

Here's a follow up half hour interview with Dr. Colli. I had the honor to sit in as the guest host for Whitley Strieber's on-line subscribers and interview with her. During the follow up interview we talked about the event in the tent with Natascha from 2010.
This conversation seems a little bit like a client and a therapist, where I ask for help and she shares her insights.
