Our speaker for July 22nd is Peter Anthony. As his career in Hollywood was reaching its peak – working alongside the likes of Dan Rather, Diane Sawyer, Leslie Stahl, and Greer Garson — Peter Anthony’s life completely changed course when he lay in a hospital bed as an 89-pound man unable to see, walk, or speak.
On November 11,1987 Peter Michael Anthony was rushed to the emergency room due to a perforated viscous, the swelling and fusion of platelets. Unfortunately, during the late 1980’s in the height of the AIDS epidemic, medical staff were cautious in assisting any patient that was brought in with brown lesions, coughing and uncontrollable bleeding. Peter crossed over at 11:11pm on 11-11- 87 on the operating room table due to medical complications. His return to life after his NDE is remarkable. The road to recovery was paved with countless health obstacles made psychologically worse by disbelief and denunciation by family members, co-workers, friends and experts in the medical and religious community. But Peter’s will to survive and thrive became paramount due to what he experienced on the other side. “In life, second chances can occur…even for those of us who die,” says Anthony. “NDErs have been given a second chance for a reason.”
Peter Anthony is the author of Key Master and The Accidental Prophet. His book Key Master was inspired by his NDE and currently is under development for a film.
Peter’s near-death experience added an array of inexplicable gifts to Peter’s capabilities. As word spread through Hollywood about Peter’s gifts and Peter began booking private sessions for celebrities and their families, friends and colleagues. In 1995, Peter’s NDE- related abilities landed him on Fox’s hit show Sightings and several other popular television shows. He recently was selected into the Hall of Spiritualists and Writers.
Peter, who is wonderfully honest, engaging and entertaining, will share his near-death experience and his amazing spiritual journey with us.
The July 22nd 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.
