Medium Nicole de Haas appears in Surviving Death, the documentary series on Netflix. Who is she? Let’s get to know more about her.

Netflix offered a wealth of diverse titles in 2020 and struck a particular chord with their array of documentary output.

From lockdown hits like Tiger King and Unsolved Mysteries to the harrowing American Murder: The Family Next Door, there were a wealth of non-fiction efforts to reach the streaming service throughout the year.

It’s likely that 2021 will offer some essential examples too, and audiences have already begun to check out Surviving Death.

Directed by Ricki Stern, this six-episode American documentary series was added to the platform on Wednesday, January 6th 2021 and explores ideas and themes of life after death.

A number of subjects and individuals are interviewed in Surviving Death, with medium Nicole de Haas appearing and offering her insight.

Surviving Death stars medium Nicole de Haas

In episode 2 – titled ‘Mediums Part 1’ – we are introduced to Nicole de Haas and she shares her knowledge as a medium.

According to her website, she was born in Tiel in 1976. She is married and adopted three children in 2002, 2005 and 2008.

She has lived with her family in Twente since 2006 and has worked with children and adults in social welfare work for a number of years. She had her own practice as a natural health practitioner and she explains that “the experience I gained during my previous activities is of extreme value for the treatment of and contact with the people within the Centre for Mediumship and Healing.”

Her interests in the spiritual have “always been present” and, beginning in 2005, she began taking healing courses and so forth, developing her skills as a medium ever since.

She completed a three-year education at the Academy for Mediumship and has trained at the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted numerous times.

It was there that Nicole became an approved tutor in April 2015, three years after earning her CSNU for demonstrating mediumship and public speaking.

Medium reflects on Netflix documentary series

On the day of the documentary’s release, Surviving Death medium Nicole de Haas shared some thoughts on her Facebook page:

She explained that she agreed to participate “because I believe that mediumship can help people to heal, that healing is needed in this world but also that we as human beings continue to learn about ourselves and life.”

Offering more reflection, she added:

“I did not want to convert people or even convince anyone of the existence of the afterlife. But one of my hopes was to inspire, to touch souls and to open doors, even if it is only a tiny bit. To give people an understanding of trance and physical mediumship and that it is not spooky or abnormal, but normal as mediumship is a natural ability.”

Continuing on, she explained: “As mediums we are very vulnerable, especially when we engage in a huge production like this and don’t know the outcome… I am very much aware that on TV things might come across differently, but what I can say about myself and all my fellow workers that participated is that we all stood there and gave everything we have, because of our love for and dedication to the world of Spirit.”
