    Heavenly Encounters: Are Near-Death Experiences Real?

    in Spirituality

    Do you believe that Near-Death Experiences are real? Is it actually possible to be clinically dead, leave your body and travel to heaven? What kind of impact do these life-changing journeys have on someone that returns from the dead?  


    Our guest today is Linda A. Jacquin.  Her knowledge and understanding of this mystical phenomena are the result of two near-death experiences and one shared near-death experience. Her first spiritual experience between drowning and resuscitation at 4 years old would permanently influence the rest of her life.


    Linda Jacquin has served on the board of 'The International Association for Near-Death Studies' (IANDS), 3 years as Vice President and the Editor of Vital Signs (IANDS quarterly newsletter). She is also the founder for the annual retreat for Near-Death Experiencers where they share their journey and learn how to integrate it into their life.


    Linda also gives talks on Near-Death Experiences across North America, appearing on both radio and TV. She was featured on the DVD documentary, ‘Cheating Death -- Beyond and Back,’ a trailer to the movie ‘Final Destination II.’   Linda was also the consultant on the Capstone Children’s Book, Near-Death Experiences and is currently writing her own book.


    Heavenly Encounters is where we talk with everyday people who have had extraordinary experiences and gifted souls that see beyond the veil.


    Together, we’ll diminish our fear of death, explore our soul’s evolution and soften the crippling grief that accompanies loss.


    We will discover a new world, a fresh reality, just a whisper away.


    So take a deep breath…relax… and join hosts Mary Elizabeth and Janis Yakopovic on a Journey to the Other Side.  Visit our blog at www.heavenlyencountersblog.com
