“Thank you for your precious comments! I’d love to respond to you. It is a joy to share my patients stories.”
If you would like to contact Becki about her video, her book, and/or speaking engagements, you can reach her at: [email protected]
Becki also writes:
“Many are asking me about my comment that I don’t believe in hell. Let me clarify that. I don’t believe in the hell that I heard about as a child; the terrible place that an angry God sends bad people. I think our experiences (in this world and the next) are based on how we live our lives, whether we’ve lived lives of love or non-loving. I choose to focus on loving God/Spirit/Jesus/All That Is and loving others. Those who have had hellish NDEs do come back ‘changed’ and seek to be more loving people. So it really is all about the Love. To learn more about this important topic, I encourage you to visit a resource page on NHNE Pulse called ‘NDEs & Hell’ ”
— In Love and Light, Becki
Becki Hawkins, a hospice nurse and a chaplain, is the author of “Transitions: A Nurse’s Education About Life And Death”. She sat by the bedside of seriously ill and terminally ill patients for more than 30 years as an oncology and hospice nurse. During that time, she listened to patients describe various kinds of spiritual experiences, including near-death experiences. Becki shared some of her stories, including the lessons she learned from them, on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 with a small group of people that gathered at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Sedona, Arizona. Becki’s presentation was co-sponored by NewHeaveNewEarth (NHNE) and The Mustard Seed Venture. Her presentation was part of an ongoing series of classes taught by David Sunfellow on near-death experiences.

The activist group calls the decision a retaliation for releasing an incriminating report about the Border Patrol. A fifth activist faces an upcoming trial and potentially decades in prison

And then what does he say when the family asks, “Will I see Aunt Betsy in Heaven?”
In this talk, Wes will highlight the metaphysics of the Atheist Hospice Chaplain who stands alongside the most fervent of religious during times of trauma. When talk of heaven, a spirit world, and a rosary are at the core of someone’s reality, how does an atheist chaplain bridge the gap?
Wes Fornes has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Philosophy from Dallas Baptist University, a Masters of Philosophical Theology from Criswell College and a Masters of Philosophy from [Green College] Oxford University. In the span of twelve years, he pastored in three evangelical churches, two of which were mega churches. Of the three churches, the first was a Southern Baptist church in Dallas TX, the second a young and hip Baptist church in Chesapeake VA, and the 3rd was a Pentecostal church in Charlottesville VA. His deconversion took place in 2010, but he remained a closet Atheist for one year while in the church.
Wes’ current position is Psychosocial Director at a hospice company covering Gilroy to Pacifica. He leads the team of chaplains and social workers whose goal it is to provide spiritual and emotional support to the dying and their families.

Reporter Dan Tilkin documents how their graves joined DOZENS of other children buried nearby that have died likely because their parents won’t take them to a doctor. They belong to a faith healing church called The Followers of Christ in Idaho. Idaho is one of the last places in the U.S. where a parent won’t be prosecuted if their parents rely on faith healing. A branch of the Followers of Christ exists in Oregon City. After dozens of children who belong to that church died, Oregon changed its laws to protect kids. Four sets of parents were prosecuted. Meanwhile, efforts to change the law in Idaho keep getting thwarted.

According to a 2009 study published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 23.5 million people in this country over the age of 12 need treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, and only 2.6 million of these afflicted individuals actually receive it. In response, drug and alcohol rehab has blossomed in the past three decades into a $35 billion industry with nearly 15,000 facilities across the country. Although non-hospital residential treatment serves only about 10 percent of those in recovery in the US, the exorbitant cost of such care–as high as $75,000 a month–has made it extremely lucrative. And thanks to popular TV shows like Celebrity Rehab, which have installed the luxurious rehabilitation center in the popular consciousness, the national enrollment figures keep growing.
VICE editor Wilbert L. Cooper traveled to Southern California, the region with the highest concentration of these high-end rehab clinics, to explore the peculiar and troubling side of the for-profit addiction treatment industry.
