Title: My NDE was my release into life itself...

Description: Having lived a life full of grievances, fears, trying my hardest to fall into (emotional) love - all that I had studied so well in my parents and relatives,

In my NDE I could - through the eyes of love - receive another look in a lot of my-selves. And am since then on my way to integrate, to heal the "stuff" I have handed-down my-self to carry with me this time ... as I watched in my NDE that I am part of my ancestors and they are part of me ... I am delighted and looking forward to share from my personal experience of NDE as an opportunity to bring my disturbances in body and psychological manners to awareness, and so to awaken, and no longer dream of a life I am longing to live and dream of a love I am suffering to get it, and "do anything to be loved" and fighting armed to the teeth to find peace.

Description: Lorna will talk of her understanding of the reason for her NDE and how when she was waking from the trance state she received a potent calling which has served her on her journey of living in the multidimension of spirit living a human experience.

Ceolanna-Elizabeth Scott:

Description: Ceolanna will share her experience of NDE while being on holiday in Spain, age 21. The fear she felt at the time while knowing it wasn't her time to die. The peace she felt in connection with all life. The spaces and dimensions she had already purposely shut down as a younger child that had opened up again and wondering again, what her purpose was in this life and a devotional path to and with soul to find out.
