Ellie Schamber

Ellie Schamber explains that “I was an atheist and did not believe that there is a soul that can exist apart from the body.” As a teaching assistant at U.C. Berkeley during the sixties, she was involved in the political activities there and taught her students that “religion is the opiate of the people.” When she was involved in a fatal car accident, she was shocked to discover that she had been mistaken. “Looking down at my body, I was dumbfounded! I realized that my belief system and all the activities I had based on it had been wrong.” It took many years for Ellie to come to grips with the experiences she had after she died. She explains that when she finally told people about her experiences, it seemed to help them. “This made me more open to talking about the experiences I had when I was on the other side, and the spiritual experiences I have had since then. I want to let people know what the Truth is, and why we are here, and what the implications are for our lives.”
