Krista Gorman is a Physician Assistant who, only three weeks after graduating from her PA training program, suffered cardiopulmonary arrest and died while in labor with her daughter. During the eight minutes she was without a detectable heartbeat, her consciousness transitioned into what we
call the afterlife, where she underwent a profound reconnection with a most Divine love that she experienced as the Universe. It is a love that we are seamless with, the love we are in our very essence.
Krista is an active member of the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS) and presented at their 2014 and 2015 annual conferences. She has also presented at the 2016 and 2017 conferences alongside her husband, Ainsley Threadgold. Some of her story and the lessons she learned in the afterlife are shared in her book, I Died And Learned How To Live, available on Amazon.
Her NDE account is also featured in The Transformative Effects of Near Death Experiences by Dr. Penny Sartori and Kelly Walsh as well as the book Awakened By Death by Karen Swain and Cyrus Kirkpatrick. In 2017 she and her daughter were featured on the program Story Of God With Morgan Freeman on the National Geographic Channel episode entitled Heaven And
Hell. This episode is also available to view on Netflix.
In addition, Krista speaks both formally and informally to various groups, including sharing the stage with her husband at Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach, Spirit University in Sarasota, Florida and Blissful Beginnings in St. Petersburg, Florida. She currently lives in Venice, Florida.
