Tuesday, Jan 21 -- featured speaker/topic – Rajiv Parti -- While on the "other side" Dr. Parti journeyed through several realms of consciousness and beyond the "light at the end of the tunnel". During his near death experience, he learned his life's purpose: to be a healer of the soul, especially diseases of the soul, of the energy body, addiction, depression, chronic pain and cancer. It was only by experiencing the diseases that had befallen him personally that he could truly have empathy for – and help – others, because he now knew how it felt to be in their shoes. His books are The Soul of Wellness, The Laws of Wellness, and The Four Pillars of Happiness.

Tuesday, Feb 18 -- featured speaker/topic – Alex J. Hermosillo: As a young man, Alex had the ability to help people with their pain with a touch of his hand.

Tuesday, Mar 18 -- featured speaker/topic – Scott Taylor: At night Taylor transforms into a near-death experience researcher and speaker. Having interviewed hundreds of near-death experiencers, he speaks to the heartfelt needs and desires of experiencer's and those close to them. Taylor became interested in this area of research after having a rare shared-death experience. The NDE became the focus of his doctoral dissertation: Near-Death Experiences: Discovering and Living in Unity. Taylor served on the Board of IANDS and moderated five of their international conventions.  When Taylor is on special assignment at the Monroe Institute as a residential trainer, he brings his interest in the similarities of near-death experiences and the expanded states of consciousness induced with hemi-sync. Taylor is also a professional member of the institute and presented at several TMI conferences on the intersection of NDEs and hemi-sync.  Taylor decided to answer the question of “How do we get people the experience of an NDE without the physical trauma?” The answer is the unique collaboration of Taylor’s script and Monroe Institute, the inventors of Hemi-Sync® technology. Into the Light: near-death experience meditations is a two CD set just released. It leads listeners on four different guided experiences simulating an NDE while assisted by Hemi-Sync in a deep states of meditation.

Tuesday, Apr 15 -- featured speaker/topic – Kienda (Betrue) Valbracht, IMA in Thanatology, Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Author. Although there is a wealth of anecdotal information from the many near-death experiences, and traditional religious beliefs, nowhere did I find a context or philosophy comprehensive enough to contain and integrate all the information. Finally, the western esoteric traditions of Theosophy, Rosicrucianism and Anthroposophy presented a matrix vast enough to organize all the pieces. After years of personal exploration and academic research, I am delighted to have synthesized an understanding of why I was born, am living, and will die, and what happens after. I bring extensive experience through my own life path which has included: Reiki Master, Institute of Cultural Affairs Facilitation Training, Interdimensional Consciousness Training. Minister of Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards (SHES), Multi-dimensional Cellular Healing, SIDS Grief Counselor, Hospice, Tai Chi Chuan, Firewalking, Omega, Tarot, Subud, Sufi Healing Order, International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Rites of Passage, Costume Design, Theater Production, Singing, Motherhood, Waldorf Education, and Anthroposophy. Author of Lucid Death: Conscious Journeys Beyond the Threshold .

Throughout all these ordeals, adventures, and profound experiences, the author received clear and reliable inner guidance that helped her and others survive and thrive.
