For most, the NDE or TDE is life changing and there are significant after-effects. Such after-effects may include losing the fear of death and an unwavering conviction that there is life after death. Integrating an experience of such magnitude into one’s life is a process that requires time, support and understanding. For many experiencers this may take years. Discovering more about this process, as well as about the experiences themselves, contributes greatly to our understanding and ability to support experiencers.

In her talks and webinars, Elaine builds on the extensive research that has taken place in this field over the last fifty years including the work of, in alphabetical order, neuropsychiatrist Dr Peter Fenwick, psychiatrist Dr Bruce Greyson, oncologist Dr Jeffrey Long, medical doctor Dr Raymond Moody (who first coined the term ‘near-death experience’), psychologist Dr Kenneth Ring, cardiologist Dr Michael Sabom, as well as Dr Penny Sartori of Swansea University in Wales. Elaine focuses on cases from TELERF’s database, sharing each case in great detail and highlighting, amongst other things, patterns across NDEs and TDEs, examples of experiential verification, potential after-effects and the reported repercussions of these experiences. She also focuses on the relevant features that are suggestive of the survival of the personality, or aspects of it, beyond death. In the words of one attendee,
I have attended many talks and workshops but none as profound as Elaine’s. I was captivated from start to finish…the knowledge she shared has definitely changed me (Gill W.)
