Jerry Gin to speak at South Bay IANDS meeting, April 23, 2019 7:00 pm (PDT)

On January 28, 1986, 17 million Americans witnessed the launch and explosion of the Challenger Space Shuttle and within 1 hour of the explosion, 85% of Americans had heard about the disaster. All 7 astronauts, including Christa McAuliffe, the first teacher in space, had died in this national tragedy. NASA and the media reported that no one survived the explosion. However, Jeanne Love, in Adrian, Michigan, channeled a hysterical Christa McAuliffe and learned the real story. In subsequent days and months, all 7 astronauts told their stories to both Jeanne and Regina Ochoa, Jeanne’s close friend. The astronaut stories, as they experienced their “life” after death, were documented in recordings which were transcribed for the next 2 years.

The main message the astronauts wanted to communicate to the world was: “life continues after death and that life is eternal”. The key question was how to accomplish this mission. Tom, Jeanne’s husband, a physicist, knew about the Foundation for Mind-Being Research (FMBR) and knew one of the physicists on the FMBR Board. Contact with FMBR was made. After 30 years, FMBR has finally honored the request of the Challenger astronauts to get their message out in a website ( ) - there is no death and life is eternal.

Foundations of Near-Death Research available on Amazon

AnthologyCoverIANDS has recently published Foundations of Near-Death Research, an anthology of 25 landmark research articles from the Journal of Near-Death Studies (JNDS). This volume provides a systematic overview—a map—of what scholars have achieved so far within conceptual and phenomenological research in the field. It identifies how nearly forgotten or neglected earlier research trends might inspire and enrich current research and points toward areas still left to be covered. The focus of the chapters moves consecutively from articles on epistemology—How do we approach the phenomenon of NDEs?, to phenomenology—What is the experience of an NDE like?, to ontology—What are NDEs, and who has them?, and, finally, to the wider implications—What do NDEs really mean?.

In the Foreword, JNDS editors Bruce Greyson and Jan Holden point out that the anthology highlights seminal work that may deserve additional attention among reasearchers.  To lay and scholarly readers who are already knowledgeable about near-death studies, the anthology brings a new level of coherence to the field; and to readers new to near-death studies, the anthology provides a relatively concise introduction with which to orient and familiarize themselves with the field.

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!
