Shared Death Experiences (SDEs) represent a unique aspect of Shared Crossing where individuals recount participating in the journey of the dying toward a benevolent afterlife. SDEs commonly take place close to the moment of passing, although they may occur moments, hours, days, or even weeks before or after the actual death.


Regardless of whether your encounter was joyful or challenging, transformative or intriguing; whether you felt misunderstood, shamed, or embraced; whether you found support or are still seeking validation; whether you are currently navigating the experience or have assimilated it into your daily life; whether it occurred recently or many years ago; and whether you've shared your story previously or not, you are invited to join a compassionate and empathetic community of individuals who have undergone similar experiences.


Or you may have never experienced a Shared Crossing or SDE, but are curious to understand more about the phenomenon and to hear the accounts of others to glean more insight, both from personal accounts and research-based perspectives.


This Sharing Group aims to offer a safe, neutral, and judgment-free zone, where individuals can freely express themselves in a loving, understanding, and accepting environment, while offering support and space-holding to others. 


The SDE Sharing Group is moderated and facilitated by the Shared Crossing Research Team.  Please see below for more details about your facilitators.
