The International Association for Near Death Experiences is one of the more well established and respected sites for NDEs. We recently become aware of this wonderful resource and can’t recommend it highly enough. The website, www.iands.org , offers a wealth of research, education, publications, and more.
“IANDS’ purpose is to promote responsible, multi-disciplinary exploration of near-death and similar experiences, their effects on people’s lives, and their implications for beliefs about life, death, and human purpose. Where scholarship does not indicate a reasonably clear position on the origin or interpretation of these experiences, we remain impartial and open to the presentation of varying points of view…” From www.iands.org
For those who are interested in a more in-depth experience, there is a conference scheduled for this summer:
Hope, Healing & Life Transformations Stories and studies from near-death experiences
August 28-31 at the Marriott Hotel & Spa in Newport Beach, California
The near-death experience (NDE) catalyzes powerful transformations in the experiencer. Many times there is a miraculous healing from the NDEr’s injuries or illness. With the insights and understanding of their life purpose, there is always personal growth and spiritual transformation. NDErs frequently find they have the gift to heal others, and the message and insights of the NDE can soothe and comfort grief from the loss of a loved one. The profound message of love from the NDE can bring about transformation for all of us.
2014 IANDS Conference details: – Thursday, August 28: workshops (priced separately), healings – Friday — Sunday, August 29 – 31: presentations, healings – Hotel rooms: $129 (single to quad occupancy)
