About Us


How We're Helping

We are a nonprofit organization focused on introducing the public to individuals who have had life changing spiritual experiences. Folks return from these experiences with no fear of death, more love of others, and changed priorities.  Many times they embrace spiritual or charity work.  They believe they have the unction to share their experiences with others. These talks give hope, comfort and direction to the listener.  Although each experience is different, there are commonalities;  floating above the body, going through a tunnel, meeting loved ones who have passed on, feeling totally loved, and being greeted and embraced by a Being of Light and Wisdom. This realm is felt as being much more real than the earthly realm. It feels like "home." Although by far most experiences are positive, hellish experiences have reported. Even so, people report being rescued  by the Being of Light.


When We Meet

We usually meet the last Saturday of the month at the Williamsburg Public Library or the James City Co. Library. All are invited to attend.  A donation of $10.00 is encouraged but not required.  Here we listen to the speakers, get to know one another, and ask questions. If you have had a Near Death Experience and would like to share or if you have any questions, please call 757-345-2460 and leave a message  for Hope Dillard. I am a counselor so I may be in session. I will call you back.


Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.

In the last 20 years, Rosemary Thornton has written nine books on historic architecture, and her books and unique vocation have been featured in every major newspaper in the country. She’s appeared on PBS (History Detectives), A&E (Biography), CBS (Sunday Morning News) MSNBC and more. In May 2009, she was interviewed on BBC Radio. Twice in the last four years, Rose has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered.

In 2016, Rose’s husband, a prominent attorney, came home for lunch and committed suicide. The emotional devastation and social isolation that she experienced was indescribably horrific. She struggled to survive moment by moment and suffered from crippling anxiety and severe PTSD. Two years later, subsequent to a “minor” medical procedure, she bled out, had a heart attack and had no vital signs for more than ten minutes. 

During that time, she was taken to a beautifully lit white room where she was told that she was being purified and healed of multiple spiritual and emotional wounds as well as physical ailments. Remembering clearly how hard her life had been, she decided that she wanted to go on to heaven, but that wasn’t to be. 

After she was back in her body, she was hospitalized for several days, and enthusiastically told all the medical staff what had occurred in heaven. After discharge from the hospital, she noted that the words “mentally ill” showed up on her medical chart. 

Today, Rose is working on a book describing her wonderful experience in heaven, and is eager to share the message of hope, healing and restoration that the angels shared with her.
