8th Annual Spiritual Retreat for NDErs, May 16-19
The 8th Annual Spiritual Retreat for NDErs will be held at the Mercy Center in Saint Louis, May 16 through 19, conducted by near-death experiencers. "As near-death experiencers we’ve been coming together every year since 2006 in St. Louis, MO for three consecutive days of opening our hearts and sharing our journeys, both on the other side and through our lives here on earth.... We have found that coming together to share with one another, opening our hearts to each other and voicing what has been a soul-altering experience allows us to not only make sense of our lives but also creates a community of support that strengthens and grows each time we meet." The retreat brochure and retreat agenda. Pictures from prior retreats.

IANDS preparing Online Educational Units for Healthcare Professionals on NDEs
Imagine a day when near-death experiencers can talk to their healthcare professionals about their NDEs and receive not judgment or ridicule, but support. We need YOUR help to make that day come sooner, rather than later. IANDS has now completed a state-of-the-art project that should have a tremendous impact on thousands of counselors, psychologists, nurses, social workers and other professionals about near-death experiences.
Each year, these professionals are required to further their education by taking classes that have been accredited through their professional associations. Our former President, Dr. Jan Holden took a sabbatical leave to develop just such a course. Part one of the course is now available on this website, using topnotch media production facilities and technology.
The cost for that will be around $18,000. The entire IANDS board has already pitched in and contributed an average of $887.50 per board member or $7100. It is relying on its dedicated members and supporters to contribute the remaining $10,900. Please join us in making this vision a reality.
