31 Oct October 31, 2018 – Paranormal Dr. Bruce Olav Solheim, Near Death Nancy Rynes and What’s in a Name Sharón Lynn Wyeth
Dr. Bruce Olav Solheim was the first person in his family to go to college. He served for six years in the US Army as a jail guard and later as a helicopter pilot. He earned his Ph.D. in history from Bowling Green State University in 1993 and is currently a distinguished professor of history at Citrus College in Glendora, California. He also served as a Fulbright professor in 2003 at the University of Tromsø in northern Norway. He founded the Veterans Program at Citrus College and co-founded the Boots to Books transition course, the first college course in the United States designed specifically for recently returned veterans. He has published five books and has written seven plays, two of which have been produced. BUT, the modern scientific world has no patience for the ‘paranormal.’ Strange experiences are explained away as dumb luck, coincidence, or misperception. Surely, we’re told, no educated person could possibly believe in telepathy, spirits, ghosts, or magic. But in a spellbinding series of true vignettes, Bruce Olav Solheim, author of Timeless, explains that the paranormal is vibrantly alive. This book is not about belief. It’s about genuine experiences that mainstream science has yet to understand.
Nancy Rynes – Keynote Speaker, Workshop Presenter, and Accomplished Author
Nancy Rynes is a noted keynote speaker, workshop presenter, and accomplished author whose work centers on living a life of presence, compassion, fearlessness, resilience, and focused awareness. She enjoys speaking to groups from small non-profits to major corporations helping listeners learn how to bring kindness, compassion, resilience, and presence into all aspects of their lives. She is a leading voice for personalizing the wisdom of Near Death Experiences (NDEs), developing our heart-centered intuition, and living a life of inspiration and creativity. Known for her fun, lighthearted, girl-next-door demeanor, she teaches how to live a more purposeful, joyful, and Heaven-inspired life. As a scientist and corporate trainer, for over two decades she aligned herself with the skepticism prevalent in so much of the scientific community. She remained an atheist until her life-changing bicycling accident and near-death experience (NDE). Now, Nancy is an avid spiritual seeker as well as a practitioner of compassion, kindness, contemplative prayer, and being the change we wish to see. Drawing on Heaven’s transformational wisdom learned during her own NDE, she integrates the teachings of love, compassion, kindness, gratitude, and joy that form the foundation for a contented, meaningful life.
Sharón graduated from the University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics at the age of twenty. She began teaching that same year in a public Junior High School in California. During her three years there, she obtained her Master of Arts degree from Azusa-Pacific University in education administration with an emphasis in math.
Sharón initially taught in California before moving to Germany where she taught for the Department of Defense Schools. She continued to move around as she married an Air Force soldier. She was fortunate to always find a teaching job in each location. After Germany came Texas, and then Japan. Eventually she would also teach in New Mexico, Nebraska, Washington state and China, besides being a high school administrator in both Texas and Oregon. She retired as a high school principal in 2002, only to come out of retirement in January 2008 to become involved in schools for an additional two and a half years.
It was during her time in the schools that she linked the patterns in names to a person’s mindset or personality. She worked on figuring out the patterns of the different letters for fifteen years before she fully comprehended all of the nuances. Sharón took the opportunity to travel a large part of the world testing her theories for the first three years after leaving the education field. Many people requested that she write a book so that they could learn what she had realized about names.
It was during this time that she wrote “Know the Name; Know the Person”, with the first edition being published in December 2006. The second edition, published in May 2010, added chapters on mnemonic devices to help people remember the patterns explained in the book and also how to compare two names. She is currently working on the third edition. She is also is working on her second book which combines story telling with logic to challenge people to think again about some commonly accepted beliefs that may no longer be serving us. Since the publication of her book, she focuses her time writing, traveling and sharing Neimology with others, and researching her theories.theories.
Have a fun and safe Halloween!
