Presentation: Saturday, February 4 at the A.R.E. from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon

David Bennett was once a brash young commercial diver and Chief Engineer of the Research Vessel Aloha.  His harsh personal philosophy was, “You cut your swath through life to survive.”  But one night he was caught in a violent storm off the California coast where he drowned.  While technically “dead,” he met beings of light, relived his life, and peeked into his future, all resulting in a complete paradigm shift for him.  Later in life, he discovered he had Stage IV lung and bone cancer—so advanced that his spine collapsed.  Miraculously, he survived once again.  These brushes with death taught him even more about living, loving, and how to find purpose in his life.  David brings listeners right into the heart of the Near-Death Experience, including his path-changing life review, being surrounded by the love and light, and meeting the Soul Family.  Part lecture and part guide for achieving spiritual growth, this talk shows how to integrate the most traumatic of incidents into one’s spiritual path in order to live a more meaningful life.

Workshop: Saturday, February 4 at A.R.E. 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

David will conduct an interactive workshop about how can you use the life review to create tools for better living.  You will learn how to use the lessons from the life review, and practice using these insights to form deeper meaning and empowerment in your everyday life.  David will explain how during the Life Review:


     There is never any condemnation; you are not judged

     You are in the presence of beings who love you unconditionally

     You are treated with total compassion and already forgiven

     You are only asked to look at your life, and understand


The philosopher Plato once asked, “Why should we not calmly and patiently review our own thoughts, and thoroughly examine and see what these appearances in us really are?”

Admission $15.
