Physician with 2 near-death experiences to speak in Peoria


“I knew I was dying. The first thing I noticed was that I was still alive. I was still there, just outside my body!”

This was the reaction of Dr. Lotte Valentin as she came close to death in the ER in 1992.

She then developed a serious blood disorder and walked a fine line between life and death for several years. Two years later as she struggled to heal, she again left her body, which resulted in a spiritual transformation and activated her life path.

As a result of these experiences, she became clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient. She was then guided to attend medical school as well as become an author and evidential medium. Lotte completed her medical school pre-requisites and was accepted into medical school at the age of 54.

She was an atheist before having her near-death experiences and it took her a quarter of a century to understand her newfound gifts.

Valentin is eager to share what she has learned and show others that it is never too late to transform one’s life path. She captivates her audiences and inspires them to become the person they were born to be by moving from their mind to their heart. Her messages provide hope and healing and create peace and happiness in your mind, heart, and soul.

Valentin will be the in-person guest speaker at the monthly meeting of Northwest Valley Friends of International Association for Near-Death Studies, April 21, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., at Rio Vista Recreation Center, 8866 W. Thunderbird Rd., in Peoria, just west of Loop 101 and Thunderbird Road.

A minimum $5 donation is requested to offset the cost of renting the room.
