Few NDE reports include accounts of both heaven and hell. Emanuel Swedenborg and Howard Storm reportedly experienced both and there’s much to learn! In this episode, host Curtis Childs talks with near-death experience survivor Howard Storm, author of both "My Descent Into Death" and "Lessons Learned." Watch as the two discuss how Howard’s 1985 near-death experience changed him so deeply that he went from being a devoted atheist to a devout Christian minister. Like Swedenborg, Howard saw both heaven and hell during his experience and shares his story in hopes that viewers will find answers to their own spiritual struggles on the path toward God.

Who’s the Host?
Curtis Childs is the digital media producer at the Swedenborg Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to spread eighteenth-century philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg’s timeless message of hope to all. While obtaining his degree in communication studies from Oakland University, Curtis experienced an internal battle with depression that led him to question God, existence, and his lifelong interest in Swedenborgian theology. After a period of intense suffering, he recovered from his depression with the help of modern medicine, therapy, and a return to the spiritually uplifting messages he found in Swedenborg’s writings. Now, Curtis is applying his education and desire to help others find peace through Swedenborg’s insights by producing and hosting a weekly webcast called Swedenborg and Life on the offTheLeftEye YouTube channel. Each week, Curtis and his behind-the-scenes team pour their talents and passions into creating weekly webcasts that focus on spiritual and societal topics such as the afterlife, angels and spirits, near-death experiences, faith, and more.
