Guest Speaker: Dr. Mary Neal, MD

November 14, 2015

NDEr, A surgeon who was skeptical of near-death experiences, until she experienced her own....from Jackson, WY.

Dr. Mary Neal is a board-certified orthopaedic spine surgeon who drowned while kayaking on a South American river. She experienced life after death. She went to heaven and back, conversed with with angels and experienced God’s encompassing love. She was returned to Earth with some specific instructions for the work she still needed to do. Her life has been filled with the miracles and intervention of God. Her story gives reason to live by faith and is a story of hope.

She returned to Earth because:

1.Her husband needed some help with his health challenges

2.Her 17-year-old son was going to be dying soon and her community would need her help to deal with his loss.

3.She needed to tell her story.

The first two items have come to pass, and she is now busy telling her story as often as possible, including in the book she has recently released, “To Heaven and Back.”

Dr. Neal was born and raised in Michigan and graduated from the University of Kentucky before attending the UCLA medical school. She completed her orthopaedic surgery training at the University of Southern California, after which she lived in Sweden, Switzerland, and Los Angeles while undergoing 1 ½ years of specialty training in spinal surgery before becoming the director of spine surgery at USC. Five years later, she left the University for private practice.

She currently lives and works in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where she and her family enjoy everything the outdoors offers, especially all forms of skiing, bicycling, boating, and hiking.
