The Girl from Kansas and the Shoe on the Ledge:

Tales from Near-Death Experiences

Kimberly Clark Sharp

Fri. Jan. 18, 6:30-8:30pm, $20


“Death is nothing to fear – and life without fear can be lived to the fullest.” 

This is Kimberly Clark Sharp’s message from her extraordinary experience during the time after her heart suddenly stopped beating and she lay on the sidewalk, not breathing, and without a pulse. Swept into a peaceful loving place of brilliant, golden light and warm comfort, she saw, for the first time, the meaning of life – and death. Guided by a new sensitivity to the presence of angels and other invisibilities, Kimberly began a career in medical social work that put her in direct contact with dying people – and ultimately, people who died and came back. The irrefutable evidence of out-of-body experiences Kimberly discovered led to a life-long mission providing validation and hope to near-death experiencers worldwide.


Known for her wit and warmth, Kimberly Clark Sharp, MSW, LiCSW, is a near-death experiencer and author of After the Light. Named one of the “40 Most Influential People Under the Age of 40” in the Pacific Northwest in 1987 for her work in the field of death and dying, Kimberly pioneered the field of critical care social work, founded the department of social work at the world’s first bone marrow transplant center and founded Seattle International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), the world’s oldest support group for NDErs. She also taught death and dying at the University of Washington School of Medicine and is a retired clinical assistant professor.
