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.
