December Monthly Meeting

December 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Our next Farmington NDE Support Group meeting is on Monday, December 12th, from 7-8:30 pm.

Joining us this month is Paul Schmitz, NDE Experiencer and a student of Native American Spiritualism.

In September of 2000, a month after his 40th birthday Paul found himself in the hospital for emergency arm surgery. During the surgery, Paul was subjected to a range of misapplied medications. After the surgery he had no direct memory of what had happened until he traveled to Peru in 2004. Under the careful instruction of a Hopi Navajo medicine man, he had a profound recollection – during the surgery he had died, and had an NDE!

Leading up to this, Paul did not have a famous career, or write a best-selling book. He had been a servant and a helper of people.

The sudden recollection led to a set of experiences stripping him of his original identity. His remembrance was unplanned, unexpected and out of his control. All of this made it very unpleasant. In the decades of research that followed his NDE, he has come across very few people who report this rare experience.

As a part of the process Paul became involved in the Navajo ‘Beauty Way’. Traveling back and forth from parts of Colorado, he helped over 700 people access the healer who woke his NDE memory, so they can participate in the Hopi Navajo healing ritual.

An important companion in Paul’s healing has been Luna, pictured here in the passenger seat. Paul will share more about her role when he talks with us.

Now living in Canada, Paul continues supporting others with Native American healing methods. If you would like to contact Paul after he speaks with our group, you can email him at [email protected] .

Join us on Monday, December 12th, 2022 at 7pm to hear Paul speak about his near death experience for about 45 minutes, followed by a question and answer session of about 25 minutes.
