NDEr; Author, Producer, International Speaker; HIV/AIDS survivor
Through Sharon Lund’s personal experiences of anorexia, suicide attempts, destructive relationships, nine years of sexual abuse as a child, two near-death experiences, and living “positive” with HIV/AIDS since 1983, Sharon has learned the true meaning of life.
These experiences have provided the basis for Sharon’s highly motivational and inspirational delivery which has made her a favorite for speaking engagements, workshops, presentations, screenings, book signings, and interviews.
She has shared with audiences around the world, traveling extensively in North America, Europe, Russia and Japan, often appearing on news and talk shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Eye on America, 48 Hours, Prime Time Live and CNN. She was featured in the November 2007 issue of “O”, The Oprah Magazine. To read this article, please go to: http://www.oprah.com/health/Women-Living-with-and-Beating-Down-AIDS/

Sharon has spoken at the Centers for Disease Control, and in 1995, she accepted a personal invitation from President Clinton to speak at the White House.
As the founder of Sacred Life Publishers and Productions, Sharon has authored and published three books: Sacred Living, Sacred Dying: A Guide to Embracing Life and Death; The Integrated Being: Techniques to Heal Your Mind-Body-Spirit; and the soon to be released There Is More … 18 Near-Death Experiences.
She has produced the documentary Dying to LIVE: NDE in which she shares her near-death experiences and also interviews other men and women about their NDEs. Dying to LIVE: NDE won 2nd place out of 300+ entries in the 2010 Silver Lei Award at the Honolulu International Film Festival.
