Veterans' NDE Video is now on sale!

Veterans Video CaseThe new video DVD, Understanding Veterans' Near-Death Experiences, is NOW ON SALE ($24.95 IANDS members, $29.95 non-members). 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. This new IANDS-sponsored Veterans' NDE Training Video provides answers.

donateIANDS and many generous donors contributed $25,000 to produce the video. We are still seeking donations of an additional $15,000 to promote the video to veterans and veteran care givers. See the video trailer on YouTube. Order a copy today!

The Self Does Not Die is now available on Amazon

BookCoverThe long-awaited book The Self Does Not Die has now been published by IANDS and is available on Amazon.com. The project involved translating and expanding the Dutch book by NDE researchers Titus Rivas, Anny Dirven and Rudolf Smit. This new edition details 104 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. Available at Amazon & Kindle!

Dr. Jan Holden presented on Drowning NDEs

International Swimming Hall of Fame
One Day Conference on Drowning Near-Death Experiences
August 18, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida!

Near Death Experiences while Drowning Dying is not the end of Consciousness by Janice Miner Holden EdD and Stathis Avramidis PhD

The International Swimming Hall of Fame hosted a fascinating and visionary “Conference on Near-Death Experiences While Drowning”, on Friday, August 18th, 2017. Since its inception in 1965, ISHOF has been the "Mecca of Aquatics," bringing together many fascinating people and acting as the facilitator for knowledge exchange. This conference aims to bring attention to near-death experiences during a drowning episode, a very important issue largely neglected by most aquatic safety professionals.

I could see, floating in the air, the lifeguards attempting to resuscitate a lifeless body; it was mine.” “I saw a bright light that asked me, in a life review, what I have done in my life for love and learning.” “I felt peace and no fear of death.” These are the words of people reporting what they experienced during the time they “died” temporarily during a drowning episode, as reported by Holden and Avramidis in their book Near-Death Experiences While Drowning. Such Reports are termed near-death experiences (NDEs). Contemporary advances in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation have enabled lifeguards and first responders to bring large numbers of victims back to life, heretofore unprecedented in human history. Of the millions of those who survive drowning each year, approximately 20% of survivors report NDEs. Read More!

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.

2012 Keynote Speakers: Brinkley, Cicoria and Clark!

2012 IANDS ConferenceDannion Brinkley, Tony Cicoria and Nancy Clark will be Keynote Speakers at the 2012 IANDS Conference, Visions: 2012 and Beyond in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, August 31 - September 2!

Dannion Brinkley

Dannion Brinkley is an internationally known author and speaker and a three-time near-death experiencer. His deep compassion for those who are suffering comes directly from his own experience of unimaginable pain in his NDEs. During his NDEs, he received prophetic visions, a number of which have been accurate. He is the author of Saved by the Light and the co-founder of The Twilight Brigade, a care community dedicated to being at the bedside of our nation's dying veterans.

Tony CicoriaOrthopedic surgeon Tony Cicoria was struck by lightning while talking on a pay phone in 1994. He experienced many of the elements of an NDE -- out of body perceptions, feelings of peace, love and warmth, a life review -- then was brought suddenly back when a woman administered CPR. Cicoria experienced no lasting neurological or cardiological effects. However, he began to have an uncharacteristic, insatiable desire to hear classical piano music and spent most of his spare time listening to classical artists. He began piano lessons and tried to play a composition he had first heard in his mind a few weeks after his NDE. Every time he would sit at the piano this music would keep playing in his mind. Fourteen years after his NDE, on his 56th birthday, Tony Cicoria played his Lightning Sonata, along with two other pieces he had composed, in a concert performance.

Nancy ClarkNancy Clark, Ph.D. is a medical intuitive, an international lecturer and workshop facilitator. In 1991, she spontaneously began to see inside the body. Within two months she had begun working with many people who initially wanted a session. Dr. Clark teaches a certified 100-hour course and clinic in "Becoming a Medical Intuitive" to students around the world and, until recently, served on the IANDS Board of Directors. Dr. Clark has a very positive view of the coming changes symbolized by 2012: "There is a reason for optimism! There is a reason to be joyous! Earth and her inhabitants are changing rapidly."

Visions: 2012 and Beyond — Perspectives from Experiencers, Science, and Spirituality

August 31 - September 2 at the Doubletree Paradise Valley Hotel in Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ
Hotel rooms: $89/night, breakfast included, complimentary parking
Plan your vacation, bring your family: visit the Grand Canyon or Sedona!

People who have near-death and near-death-like experiences sometimes report receiving visions of the future. In some cases these are visions of a personal nature that are later proven correct. Sometimes, visions are more general, relating to Earth and humanity. A vision can simply show a possible future or provide a note of caution. Still others are hopeful, showing a very positive outcome for humanity.

This Conference will focus on the visions that can give us guidance for the future. NDEr visions can be especially comforting to those grieving the loss of a loved one.

There has been a lot of hype around the meaning of "2012". Come and hear what near-death experiencers and NDE researchers can tell us!
