Diane had a near-death/afterlife experience while drowning during a white water river rafting accident in 1971 at age 30. Seven years after her experience, in an effort to understand what had happened to her (because nobody talked about these experiences back then), she returned to education to study psychology. She later became a student of the Ancient Mystery Schools, parapsychology and metaphysics, and hypnotherapy. For many years she has been a spiritual teacher, counselor, speaker and author in Florida, California and Oregon.

Barbara Graver on Blog Talk Radio (9/27/12)
In 1989, she wrote “Sitting in the Lotus Blossom,” a compilation of conversations she had with entities not from this world about subjects most of which she had no previous knowledge. Chapters include Spiritual Enlightenment of a Third Kind; As it is above, so it is below; Sowing and Reaping; The Cycle of Life, Death and Rebirth; Prevention vs. the Medical Model; Whole Man-Divine and Human; The All That I AM; The Healing of the Body-Mind-Spirit; Schools of Thought; Thinking about thinking; Inner Wisdom. Her objective was to make people think, open minds, start new conversations. Much of what she wrote is echoed in new thought.
In 1992 she self-published “Through the Tunnel: A Traveler’s Guide to Spiritual Rebirth,” which is now out-of-print but can still be found on amazon.com. This book was based on “The Tibetan Book of the Dead” and the information about the art of conscious dying that she received during her afterlife experience. Even as she was writing this book, she knew there would be another book offering this information to a wider audience.
In 1996, she began her internationally-known web site, A Near-Death Experience Beyond the Veil on which she describes her near-death experience and afterlife journey, provides spiritual lessons received during her experience which she clarified through her studies back in the physical world, and offers vast lists of books and links for spiritual seekers, as well as for seniors and caregivers.
Over the next 12 years, it became almost a full-time (non-paying) job answering the deluge of email questions she received from people around the world (180 countries). A few years ago she put a selection of these conversations into two ebooks, “Conversations With a Near-Death Experiencer” and “More Conversations With a Near-Death Experiencer” to share with others who have similar questions about near-death experiences, the afterlife, death and dying, reincarnation, fear of death, grief, suicide and spirituality.
In 2008 Diane developed a program to train Transition Guides in the Art of Conscious Dying. These are paraprofessional healers and therapists, hospice volunteers and nurses who are able to incorporate this training into their current practice to help their dying patients reconcile their lives and practice dying before they die to assure theirs will be a peaceful, even joyful, experience into the Light. Her message is that we don’t die; only our bodies die and our soul continues on in full consciousness.
In 2010, Diane reworked “Through the Tunnel” as an ebook called, “How to Die Consciously: Secrets from Beyond the Veil” so that anyone can learn the art of conscious dying for themselves or teach to those they are caring for to have a peaceful dying experience. Through meditation and guided imagery a person is able to reconcile their life and come to a peaceful acceptance of their transition journey. She also writes about how to have end-of-life conversations with loved ones and fill out paperwork that will assure one’s wishes for end-of-life care are carried out.
It is non-denominational and can be adapted to any belief system. Even atheists will benefit from reading it when they wake up one day outside their body and realize that we don’t die and there is life after death!
Diane is currently more or less retired but continues to write about her experiences and lessons learned.
