In 1988, Dr. Jeffrey Long established the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation, ** where he has researched the accounts of thousands of people who have journeyed to the afterlife.

In this video excerpt, Dr. Long shares what he has learned about the kinds of encounters people describe during near-death experiences. Dr Long’s findings are based on the largest near-death experience study in history, involving 3,000 people from diverse backgrounds and religious traditions, including nonbelievers.

Although there are a wide variety of differences in how people experience NDEs–some see a bright light, others go through a tunnel, still others experience a review of their life–many report meeting deceased family and friends and communicating “non-linguistically” with them. Those encounters are the focus of this short video.
