Our IANDS meeting of Friday 25 April will feature a panel of experiencers and our beloved researcher Sandee Cherry. Most near-death experiences are brief and without choirs of angels and the secrets of the universe. Nevertheless NDEs have a profound effect upon those who live through them. Friday we will be privileged to hear Jennifer Foley and Robert Curtis speak of their experiences and how it has influenced their lives.
Jennifer had two experiences, one as a young child when she was thrown from a horse and received a life threatening brain hemorrhage that healed overnight with the prayers of her community. Her second NDE occurred as the result of a serious rollover accident just before her 18th birthday. She saw that her life hung in the balance and plead to return to complete her life’s journey.
During an 11-hour operation, Robert Curtis found himself outside of his body in the whitest place he has ever been. He was attracted to a veil behind which he could see some activity but his father’s voice told him he had work to do and needed to return. He was never told what that work might be but now believes he knows.
In the time remaining Sandee Cherry will outline her research on how NDEs change those who experience them, no matter how long or detailed the NDE. It may be that those who hear the NDEs of others are likewise changed.
The April 25th IANDS meeting will begin at 7PM in the Salt Lake County Commission hearing Room in the north building of the County Government Center located at 2001 South State, SLC. We meet the fourth Friday of each month except December. Bring a friend as meetings are free of charge.
