Biography: In 2008, a life crisis led to Yvonne Sneeden having a near-death experience. During her experience, Yvonne entered a heavenly realm and encountered Jesus and various angelic beings. Yvonne is a member of both IANDS (International Association for Near Death Studies) and ACISTE (American Center for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences).
Yvonne is the executive co-producer together with Robert Neal Marshall of “Back From The Light”, a film-documentary focusing on the near death experience survivors and the after effects. This film is apropos because it helps Experiencers realize they are among many, around the world, who had a similar experience and have to live with the remembrance of an event which has no earthly point of comparison. The film is an exciting journey bringing together Near Death Experiencers, family and friends, with the specific focus on the after-effects of such a life transforming experience and how they have readjusted to a ‘normal’ life. It takes us into a journey of exploration of what life is like on a daily basis, following the “return”, on an emotional and physiological level, and how spiritual beliefs and relationship drastically changed.. The film will premiere at the next IANDS national conference in San Antonio Texas and a preview will be shown during the ASCS conference.
Yvonne is also currently working in collaboration with Sabine Van Den Bulke, psychotherapist and movement therapist with expertise in NDE Experiencers, and Mary-Jo Bullbrook, Director Graduate Program in Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM ) in bringing spiritual and emotional support to help near-death experiencers cope with NDE after-effects.
Yvonne’s NDE Story: Deep emotional life crisis lead to Yvonne’s Near Death Experience, in conjunction with strong medicines for heart arrhythmia. This profound and powerful life changing event, during which Yvonne visited a part of the place she calls ‘Heaven’, transcended her faith and heightened her understanding of Love, Compassion, Goodness, Kindness, and Acceptance of all. Since her profound experience, Yvonne is striving to bring the elements of the NDE into her daily life and in her interaction with others. She feels it is important to share what she learned from her NDE experience and bring it together for the common good of all and thus, help each and everyone of us to live a better life here in the now. Prior to her NDE, Yvonne’s professional career background includes working in the foreign diplomatic service in Europe. This has enabled her to meet people from around the world with very different backgrounds and through the course of her career, she has realized that regardless of the level of social and public influence people exercise, we are all on a journey.
