2017 THEME - LOVE, LIGHT and HEALING ENERGY: Affirming Near-Death Experiences: Love and healing energy from the Light are the most frequent and powerful messages brought back by NDErs. Affirmation comes from evidence and corroboration of these experiences gained through both personal testimony and research of the NDE phenomena. This conference is for anyone who has ever been touched by a Near-Death or Spiritually Transformative Experience (STE), as well as researchers and others who seek affirmation and greater awareness of the experience. Many people have had this experience. You are not alone. OPEN TO EVERYONE interested in these experiences!

New Book on Distressing NDEs by Nancy Evans Bush
Last Updated: Thursday, 12 January 2017 08:57
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 Self Does Not Die is now available on Amazon
Last Updated: Saturday, 18 March 2017 08:29
The long-awaited book The Self Does Not Die has now been published and is available on Amazon.com. The project involved translating and publishing the recent Dutch book by NDE researchers Titus Rivas, Anny Dirven and Rudolf Smit that detailed 78 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.
IANDS was able to raise more than $20,000 for the project and there are now 104 cases in the English edition! The book features each case with all of the references that readers can use to explore the case further. These references include many on-line references with the links given. There is a handy on-line version of the Reference List on the IANDS web site where the links can be followed simply by clicking on them.
Get your copy now at Amazon.com! The Kindle version is also available!

Donate to the Veterans' NDE Video!
Last Updated: Wednesday, 01 March 2017 15:47
IANDS President Emerita Diane Corcoran urges IANDS members and friends to support a video project for veterans called Near-Death Experience, What Veterans Need to Know. 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.
The Fund Raising Goal for this video project is $25,000. IANDS has contributed $5,000 toward the goal and we are now seeking donations. See the promotional video on YouTube.
