Dannion Brinkley

The survivor of three near-death experiences, Dannion Brinkley is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the fields of spirituality, self-development and complementary and alternative medicine.

The author of three international best-selling books, "Saved by the Light," "At Peace in the Light" and "Secrets of the Light," Brinkley is also a hospice volunteer and prominent figure in the New Age and New Thought Movement. After Brinkley's first near-death experience of being struck by lightning while using the telephone in his house in Aiken, South Carolina, he was left with psychic and paranormal abilities. He received visions of the future and predicted the breakdown of the Soviet Union in 1990 and subsequent food riots as well as the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Brinkley is co-founder and Board Chairman of the Twilight Brigade (formerly called Compassion in Action), a non-profit international organization that supports bedside volunteers who provide companionship to those who are dying, especially veterans, during the last months of life.
