    Living With HOPE Guest: Dan Rhema

    in Health

    Dan Rhema, an international development worker, arrived at the hospital with his brain on fire. The three strains of dengue fever, he contracted in Mexico, had morphed into the deadly combination of meningoencephalitis—both his brain and his spinal fluid were infected.
    That evening, as the doctors fought to save his life,
    Dan left his body and began an unexpected journey to the other side.
    Dan spent most of the next three years asleep. Otherworldly visual images flowed out of his dreams. During his waking hours, a creative compulsion took over his life. He began to sculpt and paint the visions he encountered in the night.
    Dan is the co-author of "I Close My Eyes to See".
