Joel Kaplan, NDE (near death experience)

  • Middlesex community college bedford ma 01730 usa (map)

Transcending beyond our ordinary understanding, stepping outside of our human sense perception, Joel Kaplan shares his near death experience.  His accident, the experience of dying, the interaction on the other side and the changes that have occurred since.


Joel Kaplan died in a car crash after having a massive heart attack. He was brought back to life with a defibrillator machine after being shocked seven times – the procedure prior to this was only shocking a person three times. When Joel finally regained consciousness, he found himself connected to 21 machines. The medical community knew he was alive but could not diagnose his potential for brain function or physical abilities. 

 He became a national case study and changed the life-saving procedure in using defibrillator machines across the United States.

Joel has been the keynote speaker at the International Near-Death Experience conference, a guest speaker at multiple universities and has presented his experience to various medical communities worldwide. 

 We have all heard the stories of those that die, go into the light, and come back--- different, awakened and in Joel’s case “gifted”. This afternoon allows you the opportunity to engage with someone that had that experience.
