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 been 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  James City Co. Library, 7770 Croaker Rd., Williamsburg, Va.  All are invited to attend.  A donation of $10.00 is encouraged, but not required.  Donations are used for speaker honoraria, rental fees for meeting rooms, website expenses, etc. During our meetings we listen to the speakers, give feedback and/or share our personal experiences if we wish, and can ask questions. Occasionally the library is not available, but if not, the location will be included in the speaker information located further down this page. 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. 

July speaker, July 27, Joan Fowler

James City County Library 7770 Croaker Rd, Williamsburg, VA 23188 11 am to 1 pm. Please join us.


Joan Fowler received her formal education in Engineering at the United States Military Academy West Point and graduated in the 3rd class of Women to enter the institution. She also has an MBA from Webster University and is a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher 500 RYT.

Following a near death experience in 1989, Joan had been in search of a way to re-experience the elation and knowingness that was present during her NDE. She was soon to experience it again when, in January 2008 as she picked up Eric Pearl’s book “The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself,” she was struck by a powerful electrical sensation. She immediately read the book and scheduled Reconnective Healing Sessions and The Reconnection. During the sessions that feeling of knowingness, of peace, of home surfaced again and continues to permeate her daily life.

It is with great humility and gratitude that Joan participates and continues the expansion of this incredible work. She sponsors grassroots efforts with local area practitioners to expand public awareness of The Reconnection through cooperative advertising, public speaking, as well as practitioner mentoring and Hospice work. She offers sessions of Reconnective Healing, The Reconnection, Reconnective-Certified Practitioner Program training, Practitioner Credentialing, Mentoring and Refresher courses.

A donation of $10.00 is appreciated, but not required for admission.
