Rob Wood – NDE

Rob Wood was born in 1948 at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, to a Jewish mother and Southern Baptist father who resolved the theological conflict by agreeing to never mention God or religion in the home. At the age of 10, Rob became a seeker on his own, setting the stage for a life-long quest to understand the nature of God, humanity, and his part in the Cosmic play. While in search of a deeper grasp of universal truths, Rob read about the therapeutic use of LSD by Stanislav Grof, Timothy Leary and other researchers, and he decided to do some serious experimentation of his own. On Valentine’s Day in 1968, due to a miscalculation in the potency of the tablets Rob took, he accidentally ingested 70 times the standard dosage required for the experience, and abruptly left his body. Rob’s account of the ensuing journey through this universe and beyond, his immersion in the “river of souls” he found there, and his reluctant return to Earth, is a unique look at the NDE/STE phenomenon.

Dr. George Rodonaia – NDE

Reverend George Rodonaia (died October 12, 2004) underwent one of the most extended cases of a near-death experience ever recorded. Pronounced dead immediately after he was hit by a car in 1976, he was left for three days in the morgue. He did not “return to life” until a doctor began to make an incision in his abdomen as part of an autopsy procedure. Prior to his NDE he worked as a neuropathologist. He was also an avowed atheist. Yet after the experience, he devoted himself exclusively to the study of spirituality, taking a second doctorate in the psychology of religion. He then became an ordained priest in the Eastern Orthodox Church. He served as a pastor at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Baytown, Texas.

Andy Petro – NDE

In 1955, Andy Pedro drowned at a senior class picnic a few days before graduating from high school. He dove into a cold lake and got stuck in the weeds and mud on the lake’s bottom. He desperately struggled to free himself, but couldn’t. Then he heard a voice. The Voice asked him to “let go”. When he did, Andy shot out of his body into a black tunnel with a bright Light at the far end. Immediately, he felt warm, joyful, free, happy, and loved — unconditionally. While on the other side, Andy experienced a life review in which he viewed all of his lives, individually and concurrently, without any judgements or condemnations. He was absorbed into the Light and knew “everything there was to know about existence and the universe”. While feeling himself to be one with the Light, Andy also retained his unique personality. In this state of oneness, The Light and Andy talked, laughed, played, and enjoyed being together. Andy noticed that The Light has a wonderful sense of humor and also became aware that the universe was full of other beings who celebrated his presence. Eventually, the Light told Andy that I had to go back. He refused, but suddenly found himself coughing up water on the sandy beach back on earth.
