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.

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.

The Healing Power of NDEs and Overcoming Tragedy

In this time of indescribable suffering from recent tragedy, many ask how is it possible to resume day-to-day living in the face of such seemingly insurmountable grief. Jeff Olsen lost his wife and youngest son... One way is to seek hope from those who have paved the way by rising above unbelievable heart-rending circumstances.

Such an example is the amazing true story shared by Jeff Olsen in his new book I Knew Their Hearts: The Amazing True Story of a Journey Beyond the Veil to Learn the Silent Language of the Heart. In 1997, Jeff Olsen experienced a catastrophic automobile accident which caused the instant death of his wife and youngest son and multiple life-threatening injuries to him that included amputation of his left leg above the knee.

 

Jeff and his surviving son visit the gravesite...In this book, Jeff chronicles his arduous struggle to overcome his unfathomable grief, guilt and critical injuries in order to return to life as father for his surviving 7-year-old son and to pick up the threads of a meaningful life for himself.

At that time, Jeff had a profound near-death experience deepening his spirituality and giving him insights and gifts not common in today’s world. A true story for these times...Having that glimpse into heaven gave him the courage he needed to carry on.

From the foreword by Dr. Raymond Moody:  "Since 1965, I have interviewed thousands of people from all over the world who had profound near-death experiences. Jeff Olsen's story is one of the most amazing I have ever heard. It is scarcely conceivable to me, a medical doctor, that he survived given the extent and overwhelming nature of his injuries. [Among] wrenching grief for lost loved ones, nightmarish pain from horrific injuries and loss of limb, [he had] a glorious journey to the luminous worlds of love beyond death [bringing] hope, renewal, and the courage to love again."

In the depths of despair from emotional, physical and mental anguish, without hope or understanding for how to even begin to go forward, Jeff heard the etherical wisdom of unconditional love in the form of two words ... "choose joy".
