On Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Orange County IANDS will present Deb Foster who will share her story of the day she gave birth to a healthy baby girl, but a few hours later, something went wrong. Deb died. She’ll share her detailed story of going to “a different place” where she saw heaven.
Her story has been featured in newspapers, Guidepost, and Barbara Walters’ special Heaven, Where Do We Go, How Do We Get There?
She’ll be answering everyone’s questions afterwards. Bring a friend, especially any animal lovers who wonder where their pets go after they leave this world.
Tom Michaelsen and other volunteers from the Sukyo Mahikari Center for Spiritual Development will be on hand to give ‘light’ to those interested at no charge. The light is known to revitalize the spirit, mind, and body, and will be offered from 11:45 am and ending sharply at 1:00 pm. If you’d like to receive ‘light’, please email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org to ‘rsvp’ so enough volunteers will be available. The earlier you arrive, the better.
He and I just connected on Facebook. He’ll be doing a book tour in the first half of next year, and will try to make it to one of our monthly meetings. Will keep you posted.
This Harvard neurosurgeon is the last guy you’d expect to believe in what’s reported in near-death experiences, he says so himself, but then he had a medical crises, flatlined and courageously shares what he saw, heard, and felt after he died.

1:00pm to 4:00pm
Our Guest Speaker
Kimberly Clark Sharp, M.S.W.
After the Light:
What I Discovered on the Other Side of Life That Can Change Your World
This is Kimberly Clark Sharp’s message from her extraordinary experience during the time after her heart suddenly stopped beating and she lay on the sidewalk, not breathing, and without a pulse. Swept into a peaceful loving place of brilliant golden light and warm comfort, she saw, for the first time, the meaning of life and death. Thereafter, Kimberly, with hamster Toto at her side, left Kansas for Seattle – known as “the Emerald City” – to fulfill a destiny devoted to the service of others as foreseen during her near-death experience (NDE).
Guided by a new sensitivity to the presence of angels, demons and other invisibilities, Kimberly attained a Masters degree in Social Work at the University of Washington and began a career in medical social work that put her in direct contact with dying people and those who almost died and came back. These inspirational stories, as well as Kimberly’s own life challenges, including breast cancer, forms the core of her book, After the Light, an NDE classic, that has educated thousands about the near-death experience with humor and tact, yet delivering the serious message that we do not die. “Death is nothing to fear – and life without fear can be lived to the fullest.”
Kimberly is the founder and president of the Seattle International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), the oldest and one of the largest groups of its kind in the world. As a clinical social worker, Sharp has taught at the University of Washington School of Medicine and at Seattle University. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband.
***Also at this meeting*** – we’ll have a drawing where four people will win a copy of Sharon Lund’s DVD, “Dying to Live: NDE documentary”, where she shares her incredible near-death experiences, how she conquered childhood abuse, her husband’s gutwrenching betrayal, and a life-threatening diagnosis. It’s thought-provoking, inspirational, and will change the way people think of life and death.
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 half-way through, and afterwards, 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.
This exquisitely produced 15 minute documentary, Reflections Back and Beyond, was produced by Beverly Brodsky, facilitator for the San Diego chapter of IANDS. Most participants are from the San Diego chapter.
