CIRCLE OF LIFE: NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE:  Candace Drake (bio) began teaching in the spring session about her Near-Death Experience and the eternal life we all strive to experience. The problem is, since we know little about death, we fear it. Candace leads her class in conversation using materials she developed to aid in understanding of transition from the physical to the spiritual. 

 

In her second session she focuses on her own personal NDE and her introduction to her second soul. She states, “I knew something strange was happening in life, so I begin to keep a journal of the present happenings coupled with previous life events.  I also began reading and listening to videos of others who had NDE. I wanted to understand what I knew.” So come and join Candy in what will be an interesting conversation.
