How a Near-Death Experience Shaped Five Teenagers' Lives: Henry Woodman at TEDxNSU

Dec 2022 03



In his talk, Henry Woodman recounts the journey of five spoiled teenagers from suburbia U.S.A. sent to the remote, impenetrable, and unmapped rainforest of the Mosquito Coast in Honduras. Their mission was to find a lost city rumored to have vast quantities of gold, but what they discovered about themselves was much more precious than gold. Woodman is the founder and president of ICE Portal and is a current M.B.A. student at the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship at Nova Southeastern University.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    where is NDE????

  4. #4

    This example of what greed does to people. it's sad..

  5. #5

    Definitely misleading title. Would be an interesting story anyway but expectations lead to disappointment. Lesson seems to be that he appreciates his white middle class life more than ever. Fair enough!

    Misleading title, did not like the talk at all, very disappointed!!!!!

  7. #7

    Wow! Scarey for these kids!

    Worst. TED. Talk.

    I know a few teenagers that this trip would work wonders ,anyone with a teenage they want to send ?

    "How a Near Murder Shaped Five Teenagers' Lives"

    This should be the title.

    Stop HIJACKING the TERM Near Death Experience. This was an absurd representation of something the ‘slick baiters’ have decided will get them hits. Can’t believe TEDx would allow that to happen.

    This is not a near death experience.

  14. #14

    I feel sorry for the mules that got swept away by the flash flood……

    I'll bet their parents had insured their lives heavily before sending their defenseless and clueless kids into the Central American Jungle along with a hired drug dealing killer whose job was to make sure they wouldn't make it back alive!

    boring, Ive done more than that – this is NO near death ex.

  17. #17

    The fact that the Dad arranged this made it personal. Shame on the dad . I was on the edge of my seat !!Excellent story and told very well.

    What a bunch of oversensitive babies in these comments… no one listening for comprehension it seems. Yes, there's no traditional NDE, but a flash flood is close enough. Flash floods can be extremely life-threatening. As for their father, the only thing he seems to have done wrong is not go with them.

    Father of the year!

    This was 4:45 minutes of my life I will never get back. Awful.

  21. #21

    I feel like there is MUCH more to this story.

  22. #22

    just a story, with a very misleading title, no nde

  23. #23

    THE JOURNEY UP THE AMAZON THAT THEODORE ROOSEVELT ENGAGED IN IS A FASCINATING READ.

  24. #24

    Cool Story, real adventures. Nice to listen to you telling. Sadly nothing about a nda but real cool story. The end feels like has nothing to do with the story though.

  25. #25

    Title is not what he talks about…I want to hear about near death not discomfort

  26. #26

    IF YOU STILL READ YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS PAGE, PLEASE READ A BOOK TITLED "SETH SPEAKS, THE ETERNAL VALIDITY OF THE SOUL" (THE UNIVERSE BEYOND THE FIVE SENSES) AND YOU'LL GET ALL THE ANSWERS YOU'RE SEEKING FOR BEING A BETTER AND WISER DOCTOR AND MORE UNDERSTANDING OF HUMAN NATURE AND ALL ABOUT THE LONG SEARCHED MEANING OF THE DEATH EXPERIENCE AND LIFE AFTER DEATH. ITS ACTUALLY CALLED "THE MECHANICS OF TRANSITION"

  27. #27

    NOT a near-death experience.

  28. #28

    The message is simple, but I think it's worth 12 minutes of your life to listen.

  29. #29

    This sounds like the basis for the Harrison Ford movie called Mosquito Coast.

    Before buying on gearbest, know that it's thieves.
    They do not repay,
    on google search for "Thieves Gearbest".

    crap nothing to do with nde! dont bother watching it

    Idiotic? I think of it like the lovely rich French foreign exchange student we hosted. The father told us to make sure he worked while he was with it since he never lifted a finger at home. We took it with a grain of salt, we did the basic stuff for him. Hubby had him help rake up the piles from our 3 acres of land, gather the chicken eggs, play with our toddler etc. I did the house work, cooked dinners and every meal from scratch. He was apart of our family for 3 weeks. We even purchased stuff for him and paid for all of his trips and meals. He told his family we were the best host he ever had. Perhaps that as the lesson his father wanted, doesn't mean he was lazy. Our host son was smart, had his pilot licenses at 17, taught pilots on school etc.

    Nice story, but down vote for misleading title.

  34. #34

    A TRUE conclusion!

  35. #35

    What Father sends a bunch of teenage boys into the jungle with only machetes to find a lost cit??? Ridiculous. Preparation is life or death in a place like that.

  36. #36

    I was put off by the constant laughing/giggling coming from some women in the audience. It seemed really inappropriate and odd. This man is telling a serious story, not a joke.
