IANDS Makes Waves in Santa Barbara

BarbaraBartolomeDeath and the Big WOW!  The Santa Barbara Chapter of IANDS was recently featured in the Mission and State newsletter in Santa Barbara.  Barbara Bartolome is the leader of the Santa Barbara IANDS NDE Support Group as well as a member of the IANDS Board of Directors. Her personal NDE occurred during spinal surgery when she was 31 years old.  In her words, "I was up on the ceiling and they were calling Code Blue, they were putting an oxygen mask on me as I looked down at my body.  I thought, ‘Huh. If I’m up here and my body’s down there, I must’ve… died.’

This article provides a wonderful review of a meeting of the IANDS chapter in Santa Barbara as well as a discussion of the NDE experience and the scientific evidence that has been gathered to support this experience. You can read the full article by clicking here.
