Cheryl is author the book, “The Final Dance: Inspiration From the Dying About Living.” Which is coming out January 2018.

Cheryl has a Master’s Degree in Social Work and has been working as a Hospice Social Worker for the last 17 years. Prior to her hospice work, she was a self-professed agnostic.

Unsure of whether life after death existed. Her beliefs have shifted drastically as she has worked closely with dying patients and their grieving family members. She will share some of the sacred and miraculous experiences she has had during her years in hospice which transformed her beliefs from questioning to knowing that life after death exists.


New November Speaker Dr. Sarah Larsen

We are excited to welcome back Dr. Sarah Larsen to our newly renovated space. 

Are you curious to explore the secrets of the Ancient Egyptians and connections to near death experiences and celestial beings? The Pyramids, The Sphinx, and Temples along the Nile used sacred geometry to activate the Mystery School Initiates into the richer spiritual energies, alchemy, and mystical transformation! Dr. Sarah has led spiritual pilgrimages to Egypt, has had several Near Death Experiences, and will share her first-hand experiences of Egypt and beyond the veil. Dr. Sarah will also be channeling messages to you and the group. As an intuitive and medium, she will also offer guidance as specific requests or questions arise.

Dr. Sarah Larsen is trained in western and eastern medicine, is a transformational teacher and coach, a world-class speaker and entrepreneur.  Coming from a repressive society and having experienced an arranged abusive marriage between the ages of 14-19. Sarah had a series of Near-Death Experiences during that time and sought knowledge in science, history, and religious traditions to heal herself and expand her worldview.  These insights, which transcend traditional borders, are what she offers to her clients and to her audiences around the world.  She is committed to the joining of our inner worlds with our outer worlds. She is a certified master trainer and facilitator of Neurolinguistics Programming, hypnotism and intuition development.  She can be seen and heard throughout the world on iHeart Radio, UBN Radio/TV and CRN network – with its 25 million subscribers.

OC IANDS exists for people in the Orange County and surrounding area who have had a near-death and/or related experiences or who have personal or professional interest in such experiences. The group provides a forum in which to discuss such experiences and their meaning and integration into subsequent life.

Discussion takes place in an atmosphere of openness and interest/support without judgment, proselytizing, or advice-giving. The group meets on the second Saturday of each month from 1:00-4:00 p.m. in Irvine.  We have a structured program with a social hour followed by a guest speaker and discussion
