Light the WayHelp Light the Way!

Envisioning a future in which near-death and related experiences have become part of the common wisdom, enriching the human search for meaning and inspiring a better world.

Wherever in the world knowledge from NDE research reaches, and wherever compassionate people educated by that information are able to offer understanding and support to their community - that is IANDS in action.

For over thirty years, IANDS has been educating the world about near-death and similar experiences, offering reliable information, education,and supportive understanding to the public and to experiencers and their families. It has helped change the public perception of what it is like to die; it has deepened our understanding of how best to live.

Now we ask you to help us move the IANDS mission forward!

This is the beginning of a new era for IANDS, crowded with plans and ongoing ventures.

  • The new IANDS office location in Durham, North Carolina offers exciting prospects for interdisciplinary programs, outreach, and collaboration.
  • We're developing a major outreach to hospices and palliative care units, reaching out to the many thousands who work or volunteer with the dying, to teach them about NDEs and make them aware of IANDS.
  • We're organizing a new series of multimedia programs to provide the kind of information you've asked for, from old voices and new, about the meaning and integration of NDEs and related experiences.
  • We're building a new online program for nurses and another for clergy, incorporating the best of what we know about helping new experiencers.
  • We want to make twenty years' worth of articles from the Journal of Near-Death Studies available as downloadable files on our web site, building support for new research, and creating an unparalleled resource for potentially millions of readers who want to learn as much as possible about NDEs and similar experiences.
