Death is a door to a deeper and higher consciousness. That consciousness is endlessly evolving.
Near death experiences are for all humans with all kinds of religions and philosophies of life exactly the same. Pim van Lommel explains in this interview more about it.

Pim van Lommel
Pim van Lommel (born 15 March 1943) is a Dutch author and cardiologist.
Van Lommel is best known for his scientific work on the subjects of near-death experiences and consciousness, including a prospective study published in the medical journal The Lancet.

He gained public attention as the author of the 2007 Dutch bestseller titled: Eindeloos Bewustzijn: een wetenschappelijke visie op de Bijna-Dood Ervaring (English: Endless Consciousness: A scientific approach to the near-death experience), which has been translated to German, English, French, Polish and Spanish. The English translation is titled: Consciousness Beyond Life, The Science of the Near-Death Experience (Harper Collins, 2010).

The Nature Institute
Mission: Nature around us is whole and interconnected. Though we are part of nature, we do not yet fathom her depths, and our actions do not embody her wisdom. A fundamental shift in our way of viewing the world is necessary if we would contribute to nature's unity rather than dissolution. At The Nature Institute, we develop new qualitative and holistic approaches to seeing and understanding nature and technology. Through research, publications, and educational programs we work to create a new paradigm that embraces nature's wisdom in shaping a sustainable and healthy future.

Modern science has increasingly moved out of nature and into the laboratory, driven by a desire to find an underlying mechanistic basis of life. Despite all its success, this approach is one-sided and urgently calls for a counterbalancing movement toward nature. Only if we find ways of transforming our propensity to view and control nature in terms of parts and mechanisms, will we be able to see, value, and protect the integrity of nature and the interconnectedness of all things. This demands a contextual way of seeing.

The Nature Institute's methodology is inspired by integrative thinkers and scientists, such as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Rudolf Steiner, Owen Barfield and Kurt Goldstein.

We develop ways of thinking and perception that integrate self-reflective and critical thought, imagination, and careful, detailed observation of nature's phenomena.

Goethe's words stand as a motto for our efforts: "If we want to attain a living understanding of nature, we must become as flexible and mobile as nature herself."

One Planet, One Ocean
Conserving the diversity of life on Earth and ocean health is critical to global human welfare, yet essential resources are at risk from the direct results of unsustainable practices. Sustainable development cannot be achieved by technological solutions, political regulation or financial instruments alone. We need to change the way we think and act.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)
Education for Sustainable Development means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning; for example, climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, poverty reduction, and sustainable consumption. It also requires participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behaviour and take action for sustainable development. Education for Sustainable Development consequently promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way.

Oneness
Oneness means that the world of physical phenomena is non-dual with the Divine Realm. One of the best ways to realize this philosophy is by working with the elements. Divine Humanity prescribes to not four or five, but to six elements. The six are: earth, water, fire, air, space and consciousness. Divine Humanity believes that all things of creation have consciousness, which interpenetrates the other five elements. These five elements are physical as well as metaphysical: i.e. water = water, emotions = water; fire = fire, spirit = fire.

Divine Humanity—a Green Religion
http://www.revolutioninreligion.com/index.php?page=pure-religion

There is one key element and one very important concept that permeate the belief and philosophy of indigenous cultures and Divine Humanity. This is the belief in the importance of nature; not the dominance and/or stewardship of it as believed by the Christian Religion, but a partnership and an oneness with nature—a nature that is divine, alive, conscious and responsive. Nature is the holy grail of healing and the secret to the maintenance of wholeness and wellness for all individuals, communities and nations.

The superiority of humans over nature is an entrenched mindset of our culture.
This philosophy can only result in a separation mentality from the essential paradise that has provided, and so far still provides, humanity with food, shelter and beauty. Why do so many go along with this separation paradigm? How blind can the majority be when “it is as true today as it was in those ancient times, dimly recalled by legend, that Nature can bestow upon human beings great wisdom and knowledge.”

Question: What is the importance of Universal Knowledge?
Answer: Without understanding the whole of All Existence humankind will not be aware of the need to restore its connection with All Existence. Only when that has been restored, healed, nature on earth will heal, life can continue. To become aware of the whole of All Existance not any treatment can help more than nature itself. The energy, present in an undisturbed environment in pure nature, creates an inner connection with your deepest Self. That connection goes far beyond the spot where you are, it is unlimited, without borders, it is universal. Then you know.

Heal your own natural self, by being for a long time back in nature.

We live in times of great social change and of deep social problems, times in which millions of people flee impending dangers of war, times in which shortages of food and water supplies are a major threat to our world and our natural resources are close to being exhausted.

Standing on the brink of a threatening world conflict which draws a sharp divide between millions of people living in sickness and poverty and a relatively small group living in prosperity, the question is justified whether now is not the time to take renewed control and counter a pending global catastrophe.

Universal Knowledge

In more than 11,000 pages of universal knowledge, the Dutch mediumistic writer Jozef Rulof gives a universal answer to deep questions of life.
 
Personal note: the 27 books Jozef Rulof wrote have not been translated all till now, but as soon as possible the translations will be completed in English, German, Portuguese and French. More languages are following. The most of the books are study books, have to be read therefore in the right order, and go far beyond the horizons of earthly science and even that what is named wholistic science or is known as spiritual science. They have nothing to do with fantasies, with visualizations or science fiction. 

Question: These books have been written by mediumistic writer Jozef Rulof. Does this not mean that they belong to pseudoscience? 
Answer: No! A lot of people however will categorize it as pseudo science. It would not be the first time in history that knowledge has been rejected as a lie, as not true, and again it takes time before it will be acknowledged as true.
In the time that science started, in the mind of the old Greeks like Aristotle, metaphysics were reality: The word "metaphysics" derives from the Greek words μετά (metá) ("beyond", "upon" or "after") and φυσικά (physiká) ("physics"). It was first used as the title for several of Aristotle's works, because they were usually anthologized after the works on physics in complete editions. The prefix meta- ("beyond") indicates that these works come "after" the chapters on physics. However, Aristotle himself did not call the subject of these books "Metaphysics": he referred to it as "first philosophy." The editor of Aristotle's works, Andronicus of Rhodes, is thought to have placed the books on first philosophy right after another work, Physics, and called them τὰ μετὰ τὰ φυσικὰ βιβλία (ta meta ta physika biblia) or "the books that come after the [books on] physics". This was misread by Latin scholiasts, who thought it meant "the science of what is beyond the physical". However, once the name was given, the commentators sought to find intrinsic reasons for its appropriateness. For instance, it was understood to mean "the science of the world beyond nature" (physis in Greek), that is, the science of the immaterial. 
(Wiki)
Add: I consider the word mediumistic as a facet of metaphysics, that what cannot be measured with normal physical instruments, or what we experience or observe as nature with our physical eyes. A medium is an instrument in itself. Like electricity goes through a lamp and creates light. The lamp is the medium. The energy Jozef Rulof has filled is the spiritual light (Higher Intelligence) of the Spheres of Light, the Hereafter.
It is comparable with the insights and experiences of Einstein and Jung, and so many more. But Einstein and Jung are considered as no nonsense humans, not stupid, not insane, not vague.
Note: What Aristotle really meant will never be scientifically investigated. Fact number one is that philosophy as we know it now is a pseudoscience, because all is brainstormed with the ratio, so: it is one-sided study of phenomenons that cannot be proved. Fact number two is that there was an incredible deep knowledge about the universe in old Egypt. The knowledge of the Egyptians goes beyond even the (poor, just rationalistic) science that is educated now on the universities, world wide. Nobody will ever know by using just the brains what the Egyptians knew. 
Also here an important message: Jozef Rulof writes in one of his books about his life in Egypt as a high priest, and about the black magic the most of the high priests around him in the latest Egyptian dynasties used/worked with to be in what they knew as Spheres in the astral worlds (Book: "Between Life and Death") where universal knowledge was present.
