Father and son (Jeffery Olsen & Spencer Olsen) share their two drastically different experiences of an auto accident that took the lives of half their family. Jeffery (the Father) having profound Near-Death Experiences, Out-of-Body Experiences and After-Death Communications, while Spencer (the Son, only 7 years of age at the time of the accident) had no NDE nor mystical experience at all and was left to navigate grief, loss and trauma as an innocent child. Now, the two come together to share where their paths have taken them and why. And how they are bonded beyond the experience through a unifying knowledge of love.

IANDS is a membership nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to advance globalunderstanding of NDEs and related experiences through research, education, and support. We envision a future in which all people embrace near-death and related experiences as a source of meaning and inspiration for a better world. We believe NDEs can transform an individual’s life, influence the sciences, and embolden society. Today, IANDS engages in far more than research and has members from around the world.

What is an NDE?
A near-death experience (NDE) is typically a profound, life changing, intensely emotional experience that usually occurs during a clinical crisis and has common characteristics and aftereffects. It is not a dream, hallucination, or mental illness (Greyson, 1983). There are no predictive variables to identify who will have an NDE. They happen to people of all ages, religions, socio-economic groups, cultures, educational backgrounds, and belief systems. They occur under a variety of circumstances such as accidents, near-drownings, illnesses, combat, surgical procedures, and childbirth. Following an NDE, experiencers (NDErs) often display some common aftereffects. Research has established a set of common NDE characteristics and long-term aftereffects. Theories used to explain near-death experiences in purely physical terms have been proven inadequate by NDE researchers and others.

  1. I've had lots of love for Spencer since the first time I heard Jeff tell his experience and it's fantastic to hear & see Spencer here. I buried my child in 1979 and had other horrific experiences since and so very much appreciate both of you and your experiences. I've long reached total acceptance about my child, but am still working on some of the other things. With no doubt whatsoever, I believe we will be reunited with our departed loved ones and will be completely healed from these temporary separations.

  2. Spencer is still visibly in great pain over the loss of his mother, brother and the whole ordeal. I don’t know you but I see and feel his pain within my being.
    Please be mindful and sensitive to this as I know he should not be reliving this pain again & again in interviews. Thank you sir.
