Desperately Seeking the Light: Distraction, Addictions and the NDE
P. Edward Salisbury, D.Div., Chuck Gaylord, Janice Holden, Ed.D., & Cassandra Musgrave

An open discussion to explore the challenges and pitfalls that have beset many of us as we have sought to reclaim the power and ecstasy of the NDE or similar STEs. It will be an open gathering designed to explore the experiencer's and the consciousness researcher's quest to simulate or recreate the NDE or STE thru 'less than positive' behaviors. Participants will be asked to respect each others opinions and anonymity, allowing for each person's point of view without retort or critique.
