Unity of Tustin Church, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA, Classroom 5

Sue Ingram has had two near-death experiences, the first in 1966 due to a car accident in a turnpike.  The NDE was extensive, intense, and as Sue describes it, “in full color”.  The second NDE occurred about 22 years ago, the result of an epidural administered just prior to going into surgery, when something went very wrong.
Please join us to hear Sue’s experiences of when she crossed over, to share any NDE or transformative experiences you may have had if you’d like to, or to ask questions.  Everyone is welcome.

Jan 10th Doug Heyes, Jr., a Healer due to NDE and Miraculous Healing. Conducting Healing Meditation

While on his skis as a ‘ski patroller’ at a well-known California resort, Doug Heyes had a devastating accident when his skis locked up, resulting in a spinal cord injury, paralysis, and an NDE, which he will describe.

Doug first came into awareness of his gift for Spirit Energy healing following his own miraculous healing, which received widespread attention from its publication in Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles. Since then, he has devoted himself to the study and practice of transformation healing, working extensively with masters and teachers in the field, from which he has built a worldwide healing practice.

During Saturday’s talk, Doug will guide us in a meditation where we will open ourselves to the presence and power of Spirit through breath, light and energetic attunement, a state in which profound healing can occur.

In concert with his healing work, he is also an EMT, and continues his work as a ski patroller and professional rescuer. He’s also author of Body Mind Heart & Soul – The Journey to Total Healing. He holds a B.A. in Psychology (UCLA, 2007) and a Masters in Spiritual Psychology (University of Santa Monica, 2012), as well as a Red Belt in Pyong An Do Wan (Peaceful Mind Way) Kung Fu. Prior to his conversion to the healing arts, he spent many years working in the entertainment business as a writer-producer IMBD/Doug Hayes.

Christian Minister’s NDE: Saved from Horrifying Darkness, Followed by Light, Healing Miracles

Mickey Robinson, born a Roman Catholic, now a Christian minister and author of Falling Into Heaven, recounts his 1968 near-death experience when the plane he was in exploded.  He was only 19 years old.  As the facilitator of Orange County IANDS and in my own personal interest and research into near-death experiences, he reports something I have not yet heard from other experiencers.  At the moment he revived and came back into his body, only momentarily he heard himself speaking a beautiful language, one he had never heard before.

Mickey has a pleasing low-key, matter-of-fact way style of communication in which he tells his story to Sid Roth, a messianic Jew and host of the Sid Roth-It’s Supernatural show.

A further search on Youtube will produce many interviews of Mickey.  I came across one in which the host invites him to say a prayer for all the listeners.  It may have a different effect for you, but the prayer had a calming peaceful effect on me which has lasted throughout the day.  I’m not a Christian so as I heard the references to Jesus Christ, I just replaced them with words which reflect my personal beliefs, ‘God’, ‘My Creator’, ‘Higher Power.’  The prayer in the following video starts at the 4 minute mark.

NDE’r Nanci Davison explains the Life Review is NOT God’s judgement of your mistakes

Video about 3 minutes.

Nanci Danison is an attorney in Ohio who had an NDE years ago, and is known to have one of the most expansive memories of all lessons learned while on the other side, which she uses to make a difference in all our lives.  Do a search on Youtube, she has many videos posted on different subjects.

Dec 13th speaker: Had NDE at birth, SIDS mother, helps dissolve fear of death

International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS)
Orange County Chapter Support and Interest Group


Featured Speaker

Kienda Valbracht


Date:          Saturday, December 13, 2014

Time:         1:00-4:00 pm

Place:         Unity of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA


Kienda had an NDE (near-death-experience) at birth and the reason why she had many STEs (spiritually transforming experiences) in her early childhood years. In her late teens, to more deeply understand her own experiences, she began exploring the world’s religions, cults, and mystery.

Kienda is also a SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) mother. She bore the shock and sorrow of her infant son’s death. Her continued relationship with her son, Christian Alexander, has contributed to her book, Lucid Death: Conscious Journeys Beyond the Threshold.

She says most people have no idea what happens after death, and so live in fear of the unknown.  Everyone needs a clear, comprehensible understanding of death and the beyond, including doctors, nurses, caretakers and hospice workers, because all physical life begins at birth and ends universally in death. Through her research and experience, she offers information, insight, and hopefully, can help to dissolve the fear, leading to a richer, fuller life.  That experience includes: Reiki Master, Institute of Cultural Affairs Facilitation Training, Interdimensional Consciousness Training. Minister of Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards (SHES), Multi-dimensional Cellular Healing, SIDS Grief Counselor, Hospice, Tai Chi Chuan, Firewalking, Omega, Tarot, Subud, Sufi Healing Order, IANDS, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Rites of Passage, Costume Design, Theater Production, Singing, Motherhood, Waldorf Education, and Anthroposophy.

Kienda has an IMA in Thanatology (the study of Death,) and is a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

Featured speaker
Kiowa Michaels

author of ​My Near-Death Experience and
When To Give Up on Life and Child (autobiography)
Kiowa was born with a congenital heart disease. He’s had 29 heart surgeries, 5 major lung surgeries, 5 pacemakers and 6 near death experiences (NDE’s). He was also severely abused by a parent all his life. As a young boy, he considered suicide as the only way out. When he was 12, two weeks prior to his first heart failure, he had his first near-death experience or spiritually transformative experience, something which NDE researchers say is not uncommon. After he revived, he never considered suicide again – not because of fear, but from the immensity, beyond description, of love, complete lack of fear, and peace he experienced.
Questions and answers follow.
