NHNE Near-Death Experience Network

Exploring all aspects of near-death experiences (and related phenomena).

NHNE NDE Members Who Report NDEs & Other Spiritually Transformative Experiences

Many of the members of our network report having spiritually transformative experiences. In order to help them find others who have had similar spiritual experiences, we've created five categories of spiritual experiences and then listed members accordingly. Some members appear in more than one category because they have had more than one kind of experience. For our purposes "clinical death" is defined as "situations where blood circulation and breathing have stopped and there is no measurable brain activity".

If you have any additions or corrections to make to this list, please contact Sandy B.



1. Near-Death Experiences (NDE)

People who have clinically died who report having an out-of-body experience, tunnel experience, feelings of peace, encountering beings of light, encountering deceased family and friends, a life review, and/or a personal transformation of some kind after they return.

2. Near-Death-Like Experiences (NDLE)

People who have NOT clinically died who report having out-of-body experience, tunnel experience, feelings of peace, encountering beings of light, encountering deceased family and friends, a life review, and/or a personal transformation of some kind after they return.

3. Distressing Near-Death or Distressing Near-Death-Like Experiences (DNDE)

People who have -- and who have not -- clinically died who report having distressing or hellish spiritual experiences.

4. Shared Death Experiences (SDE)

Spiritual experiences that are triggered by being in the presence of a person who is dying. These experiences can include classic near-death experiences, as well as other kinds of experiences, such as rooms becoming translucent and altering shape. 

5. All other kinds of Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STE)

Couldn't figure out what to do to chat.  Any advice? 

Comment by David Sunfellow on June 17, 2012 at 6:25pm

Barbara, thanks for this update. I'm relieved. I'm also continuing to pray for Beth, you, and you/her family. 

Comment by Barbara Whitfield on June 17, 2012 at 6:17pm

Thanks Sandy. And she is getting better. Part of the incision has closed and there's just opening left.

She's gone back to work but says she is very sore and stiff. All the prayers are so appreciated and what has kept me going.

Thank you everyone!

Comment by Sandy B. on June 17, 2012 at 5:40pm

Barbara, wouldn't that be a fun gathering!

I'm still keeping Beth and your family in my thoughts and prayers.



Comment by Barbara Whitfield on June 17, 2012 at 11:16am

Wow! What a list. 

If we were all in the same conference room we would probably blow off the roof!

Comment by Sandy B. on June 16, 2012 at 4:21pm

Thank you Simon.  I hope that this proves to be helpful and beneficial to everyone here. 



Comment by David Sunfellow on June 16, 2012 at 1:58am

Hi Simon. Your entusiasm if contagious -- and much appreciated!

Comment by Simon Limbrick on June 16, 2012 at 12:28am

This is fantastic!  Well done, Sandy.  Now people who have had the same experience know exactly who to talk  to to share/exchange impressions.  This site just keeps getting better and better.
