The Song Of Belonging: A Childhood NDE During The Rhodesian Bush War

When I was eight years old, in 1977, I was abducted by an American from the US and taken to Rhodesia at the height of the Bush War. He assaulted me, then abandoned me. I made my way to a rural village. Two women of this village mothered me and helped heal my injuries with their love, singing prayer, and medicine from the land.

A battle happened near the village, I was shot by a soldier and crossed over into death. On the other side I was first greeted by two black women who I recognized but could not name. As I moved through the veils toward the Great Heart four more beings showed me that my belonging could never be diminished no matter what happened. While holding my lifeless body, one of my Mamas began singing a calling song to me. When I heard her song I chose to come back to life. Two days later my village was massacred. During my escape I collapsed and had a second NDE.

This past spring I returned to Africa for the first time in 40 years where I experienced profound healing. I share this healing and my NDEs to show how the situations where we have been most broken can be the very conditions that activate our greatest potential, and how we all absolutely belong. My presentation will include:

- A slideshow including the visual art I created to bring you with me on the beautiful journeys of my NDEs.
- My husband, John Utter, and I will close with Singing Medicine for the group.
