The life story of Nadia, a three-time near-death experiencer, is a message of hope and inspiration. She views her life as a journey that, after many turns, has led to the joy of connecting with her true purpose. But it began very differently. Nadia was sent to a full time boarding school at only four years of age, and was raised in a strict Catholic convent. She recalls early childhood as a time of nagging sadness, of feeling different and out of place in a seemingly harsh world.
Nadia is a perfect example of how an NDE can dramatically change a person's life. After being bitten by a snake when she was a child, she had a very beautiful NDE. Having to return to life from her NDE was a tremendous disappointment to her. Her desire to once again be in the spirit world of love and peace caused her to attempt suicide on one occasions, which resulted in another NDE experience, yet this one was very different than the first one. Many years later her third NDE eventually led her to dramatically change her life; where she discovered her life purpose and devoted decades of service to terminally ill patients and the promotion of near-death experiences; letting people know that life goes on.
Her NDEs are profiled in P.M.H. Atwater's excellent books entitled Children of the New Millennium, The New Children and Near-Death Experiences and We Live Forever: The Real Truth About Death. Nadia is the President and Founder of the Angel Staff, volunteer and formerly headed the Bay Area Chapter of Compassion in Action, an organization that trains hospice volunteers. She is the facilitator for the San Francisco-Bay Chapter of IANDS and directs her own organization, Changing the Face of Death, a not for profit organization dedicated to public awareness, consciousness and service towards the dying.
