PSI Presents Erica McKenzie, Friday, October 7, 2016, 7:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel. "A Profound Near-Death Experience". Join us and be inspired by Erica’s experience!  Erica McKenzie graduated from Clarkson College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, she is an inspirational speaker, NDE researcher, an advocate in helping people who have experienced a NDE and author of Dyeing to Fit In. 

In 2002 Erica McKenzie’s lifelong battle with addiction and body image ended one day when she collapsed to the floor unconscious having a near death experience. She will be sharing with us her experience on the other side a story of her extraordinary near-death experience with God and the journey to Heaven, Hell and back and what she learned while there. Since this time Erica has dedicated her life to sharing this experience with others.  After the NDE she first found she had to take control of her own health care and heal herself. Working with body, mind and spirit, she now finds herself living a more balanced life and says she’s experiencing vibrant health for the first time in many years.

As a self-advocate for her own health on all levels, she’s learned what it takes to work with traditional medicine, alternative medicine and spiritual practices to heal. With the knowledge, her goal is to help others achieve vibrant health. By recognizing the unique blueprint in each of us, she helps others find their own balance of body, mind and spirit. Each of us need to take responsibility for ourselves and choose the practices in each of these areas to achieve a vibrant life.  Join us and be inspired by Erica’s experience!

Linda Hall Library Presents Astronaut Scott Kelly, Thursday, October 13, 2016, 7:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel. Back from his historic record-breaking year in space, NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly has laid the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration, and continues to garner media exposure like no other pioneer of our time. From the cover of TIME to live interviews on TODAY to features in Forbes and on CNN to a Twitter following that is rapidly approaching one million, the world remains in awe as we celebrate a hero’s return to the planet that is home, from an adventure that is extraordinary. With life lessons and personal stories that reveal unique and valuable advice on pushing one’s own limits, to insight on the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, and the challenges—such as long-term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth—Captain Kelly reflects on the choices and life events that paved his journey’s path and brings audiences to the edge of their seats as he delivers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

An astronaut since 1996, Kelly’s achievements over his illustrious 20-year career with NASA earned him the coveted position as America’s first year-round astronaut. On his historic mission that spanned from March 2015 to March 2016, Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko conducted experiments, reconfigured station modules, and captivated the world with live interviews and never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station. The historic mission also included NASA’s groundbreaking Twins Study, in which Kelly’s identical twin brother, retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly served on the ground as a control model in an unprecedented experiment to understand how space affects the human body. Prior to his career with NASA, Kelly served 25 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring as an experienced aviator and decorated Captain.
