The Near Life Experience might seem to be an odd, extraordinary occurrence, but in fact it can happen to anyone. Why to be the self-stigma of your fixed, unchanging identity, as if we were never to act, never to desire, never to experience anything new? Now we can give you the most precious gift of all: The Near Life Experience.
