AFTEREFFECTS OF NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES
A Deeper Understanding and Sharing of the Gifts
August 30 - September 2, 2018
2018 THEME - AFTEREFFECTS OF NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES: A Deeper Understanding and Sharing of the Gifts: People who have had an extraordinary experience in their lives often change their perspective on human relationships and may develop special abilities to help others. The aftereffects of an Near-Death (NDE) or Spiritually Transformative Experience (STE) often prove to be the initiation of profound changes. We seek to provide a deeper understanding of these gifts, which allow all to live life with love, hope, joy, compassion, awareness, and connection to others.
OPEN TO EVERYONE including researchers and others who seek affirmation and greater awareness of these extraordinary experiences!
- Promote disclosure, description and classification of the phenomena associated with NDEs and related experiences that affirm near-death experiences and their aftereffects.
- Identify practices and insights that may help those in the healing professions (doctors, nurses, hospice, chaplains) to support NDErs and STErs to affirm their experience, the aftereffects and the gifts from the experience.
- Compare and contrast insights about the aftereffects of near-death-related phenomena when viewed from the experiencer, scientific and/or spiritual perspectives.
- Discuss recent research on near-death-related phenomena and associated experiences, with an emphasis on the aftereffects and the gifts that affirm the experience.
