Why It’s Important To Know About Shadow Issues And Work On Them

by David Sunfellow

Quotes “Here is a universal truth that everyone needs to know: Spiritual experiences, including near-death experiences, DO NOT perfect the human side of our nature.

Dr. Yvonne Kason – What I Learned From My Four Near-Death Experiences

by David Sunfellow

Having had four NDEs over the course of my life impacted me profoundly. As a medical doctor, it prompted me to shift my medical specialty into pioneering STE research and counseling. My personal struggle for understanding convinced me of the need to spread awareness of STEs, and to affirm that they are not hallucinations! My NDEs also impacted me profoundly personally, as a spiritual seeker. My multiple experiences on “the other side” taught me many spiritual truths. The most powerful lessons I learned were these…

The Other Side Of Paradise: How I Left A Buddhist Retreat In Handcuffs

by David Sunfellow
