As the camera rolled for the very first of dozens of interviews for this new documentary film, Back From The Light, I reflected opon my own premature and temporary departure from this life on August 3rd, 2013 following a massive heart attack. I went into Ventricular Fibrillation in an ambulance as the result of a 100% blockage in my Left Anterior Descending artery, the “widow maker.” I was gone for approximately 1 1/2 minutes while paramedics worked to bring me back.
Besides the trauma of surviving a heart attack, the emotional and life changes I experienced have been complicated and intense for not only myself, but for my family and friends. It has become a compelling new journey to understand these new thoughts and pursuits. I was introduced to Yvonne Sneeden who shares her own intense Near Death Experience (NDE) and we saw that there was an opportunity to help so many others by sharing common experiences. We saw the need to explore, from a professional and personal point of view, the detailed After Effects of an NDE and provide specific insights towards healing and understanding.
As this film develops, many are joining to provide insights and deeply intimate details of life changing events. We welcome others to contact us if willing to tell their own stories and be part of this exciting project. Please note that as this film is focusing and exploring just After Effects, we will not include any details of actual NDE’s as these experiences are still a matter of deeply personal interpretation by the experiencer as well as by family/friends, the Medical & Scientific community and others. After Effects are more universally definable and, no matter the cause, can be directly defined as something that has a profound effect on a person and those around them after surviving an NDE.
