Donate to the Veterans' NDE Video!

DianeCorcoran2IANDS President Emerita Diane Corcoran urges IANDS members and friends to support a video project for veterans called Understanding Veterans' Near-Death Experiences. Service members who have had an NDE should be assisted by medical personnel or chaplains trained to deal with those who have experienced NDEs. However, because of lack of training, that care is often not available, and the impact of this crucial gap of care can be great. It is traumatizing, exacerbating the effects of already devastating injuries, as well as PTSD, and magnifying feelings of confusion, fear, isolation and hopeless despair. Veterans may carry these feelings for a lifetime. donateThe Fund Raising Goal for this video project is $40,000. IANDS has contributed $14,000 toward the goal and we are now seeking donations of the final $15,000 to help promote the video to veterans and veteran care givers. See the video trailer on YouTube. The video DVD will be on sale shortly for $29.95.

New Book on Distressing NDEs by Nancy Evans Bush

Buddha in Hell

Announcing The Buddha in Hell and Other Alarms

Just in time to curl up with a good thought-piece for winter reading, here is The Buddha in Hell and Other Alarms: Distressing Near-Death Experiences in Perspective, a second book from IANDS’ own Nancy Evans Bush.

Whereas her first book, Dancing Past the Dark, was a descriptive study of distressing NDEs, here she blends questions raised by readers into her ongoing investigation and considers our cultural notions about fear in spiritual life. Despite the topic, it is not a gloomy book and throws considerable light on the source and purpose of the extreme conditions present in distressing NDEs.

Much of the book’s material originated in the years since the publication of Dancing Past the Dark; new writing augments blog posts and conference presentations, which have been expanded and largely reworked for the more permanent format of this new book. The Buddha in Hell and Other Alarms is available as an ebook or in paperback and can be found on Amazon and virtually all other bookselling outlets.

The Self Does Not Die is now available on Amazon

BookCoverThe long-awaited book The Self Does Not Die has now been published and is available on Amazon.com. The project involved translating and publishing the recent Dutch book by NDE researchers Titus Rivas, Anny Dirven and Rudolf Smit that detailed 78 cases of veridical perceptions and other verified paranormal aspects of NDEs. Veridical perceptions in NDEs provide the best evidence of the apparent separation of consciousness from the physical body and, by implication, survival of consciousness after death.

IANDS was able to raise more than $20,000 for the project and there are now 104 cases in the English edition! The book features each case with all of the references that readers can use to explore the case further. These references include many on-line references with the links given. There is a handy on-line version of the Reference List on the IANDS web site where the links can be followed simply by clicking on them.

Get your copy now at Amazon.com!   The Kindle version is also available!

2011 Keynote Speakers: Moody, Greyson and Alexander!

Leading NDE researchers Raymond Moody and Bruce Greyson, and neurosurgeon NDEr Eben Alexander will be keynote speakers at the 2011 IANDS Conference in Durham, NC, September 2-4.

EbenAlexanderDr. Eben Alexander, an academic neurosurgeon for the last 25 years, had an NDE in November 2008 as a result of acute meningitis infection. Many scientists still conclude about NDEs that "when the brain actually dies, so does the mind/soul/self etc." That's why Dr. Alexander's experience is so important. In the midst of his week in coma, he had a remarkable spiritual experience. His story is a key addition to NDE literature!

Drs. Moody and Greyson are two of IANDS' founders and will help celebrate IANDS' 30th birthday at the Conference.

Raymond MoodyDr. Moody recently published Glimpses of Eternity: Sharing a loved one's passage from this life to the next. This book describes Shared Death Experiences in which persons present at the death of a loved one themselves experience leaving their body, viewing the life review of their loved one and traveling part-way toward the Light. Moody described some of his insights in a recent interview.

Bruce GreysonDr. Greyson has been called "the father of NDE research" and is one of the most prolific researchers in the field. In a recent interview, Greyson discussed how cumulative research into NDEs challenges both a classical physical view of reality, and an exclusively neuroscience-based view of consciousness.

The theme of the 2011 Conference is Lives Changed Forever: Perspectives from Experiencers, Science, and Spirituality to focus on the profound aftereffects of near-death experiences.
