The loss of a loved one can bring overwhelming grief and deep questioning — Where is my loved one? How is my loved one doing? Will we ever be together again? How can I go on now without my loved one?

Near-death experiences give a perspective on death that truly inspires hope and provides answers for those who are grieving the loss of their loved one.


NDE Guest Speaker Saturday, July 13, 2013

Mea culpa!  Did you attend our IANDS meeting last month for the first time? The guest speaker was past life hypnotherapist, Scott de Tamble.  I misplaced the New Visitor sign in sheets so those names never made it to our mailing list. Please send your first and last names to  Mark the subject line: OC IANDS Mailing list.

Suzanne Boehm went for a routine dental appointment, and while she sat in the dentist’s chair, she simply died.  Having flat-lined for four minutes, Suzanne experienced a lengthy encounter with God.  He told her to write a book and bring certain profound messages which address many of the questions many of have, such as:

Why am I here?

Is there a meaning to my life?

What is my purpose in life?

Does God really exist?

Are my prayers heard?

Is God speaking to me, or is it just my imagination?

She died on July 13, 1993 –– that’s 20 years to the day of her talk!

Suzanne is the author of “BEYOND THE TUNNEL”, an award-winning speaker who is multilingual, and has spoken to both national and international corporations, conventions, associations, churches, and universities, and countless radio shows across the country.  She was also featured in the documentary, “Final Destination II: Cheating Death, Beyond and Back”.


From 11:45am-12:50pm in the same room as our meeting (Room 5), spiritual energy will be offered by Sukyo Mahikari practitioners. No charge. Each session runs approximately ten minutes.  If interested, a reservation is required by emailing Tom Michaelsen at

Sukyo Mahikari is the giving and receiving of positive, spiritual energy transmitted from the palm of the hand toward the receiver while both sit on chairs.  The energy transmitted purifies and revitalizes the spirit, mind, and body. You are welcome to invite your friends and family to receive light.  For more information on Sukyo Mahikari, click on the link:  Sukyo Mahikari Center for Spiritual Development


Snacks – only if you can, bring something to share.  It’s ALWAYS appreciated!  Bottled water will be provided.

We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month, from 1pm-4pm at Unity Church of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA.  Drive to the back of the church, turn left, and park. Enter the 2nd door you come to.

  • Each meeting contains a break, questions and answers, and discussion. There is no pressure to participate in a discussion.
  • Not everyone who attends has had a near-death or spiritually transformative experience. Everyone has their own reason why this group is of interest, and all are welcome.
  • We encourage a donation of $10 per person but no one is turned away.  STARTING WITH OUR  AUGUST 10TH MEETING, the cost of attendance will be $8 per person for everyone.
