On Monday, January 25, 2016, we are privileged to have Linda Manley, Emergency Nurse Practitioner, talk with us about her work experiences and research in the area of near-death experiences. The title of her talk is:
This presentation will synthesize 30 years of evidence-based research on NDEs and identify triggers, common elements, and after effects along with helpful advice for family and friends. In addition, a discussion of related phenomenon, including near-death awareness and after death communications will be included, with many personal stories.
A brief background on Ms. Manley:
Ms. Manley’s 35-year career includes service in the Army Nurse Corp, 25 years as a flight nurse in Central Ohio, and 13 years as an emergency nurse practitioner. Her interest in NDEs began when a teenager survived a cardiac arrest and vividly described aspects of his resuscitation he could not have known. Ms. Manley has studied near-death experiences extensively and published in a professional journal. What she has learned about this subject fundamentally altered her viewpoint on death. With a personal goal of increasing awareness among health care professionals, Ms. Manley has spoken to over 10,000 people around the country about near-death and related experiences. In addition to her interest in this topic, she has also advocated for stronger child abuse legislation in the State of Ohio and, in 2000, this effort led to Ohio House Bill 162 (Homicide by Child Abuse).
