Other Information:

We usually have a speaker or panel, with topics either directly related to NDE's or spiritual growth. While our attendees include a number of people who have had near-death or other spiritually-related experiences, many non-experiencers come to learn about these life-transforming events, and to ask questions of NDErs face-to-face. We provide a friendly, open, and supportive environment.   Our meetings include a break for socializing, and time at the end to meet the speakers. You are encouraged to bring refreshments for sharing! An $8-$10 donation is requested to help with rent and expenses. Nobody is turned away for lack of funds.

East Bay International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) presents…

Four –Time Near-Death Experiencer PRANA SATI


 TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 7:30 – 9:30 PM

Rudramandir, 830 Bancroft Way, Berkeley

Dear Friend of IANDS,

What is your life’s purpose? Why are you on this particular planet at this particular time in history? Why are you living your life the way you are living it? Is there some deeper meaning to your existence? Did you agree to be here, and if so, what other agreements do you have while you are here? Is who you are limited to just your five senses, or even to your six?

“These and many other questions were answered for me at age 17 just shortly after I slammed my motorcycle into a stationary car at more than 100 miles per hour.” … Prana Sati, after his first NDE in 1979

Prana Sati is the rare individual who has had four near-death experiences. But put that number aside. The real story is his immensely detailed account of the wisdom he received during his visits to the Other Side.

Yes, says Prana, everyone signs a pre-birth agreement – his even included agreement to have his NDE’s. We choose our parents and many other details, forming our Cosmic Blueprint.   The future is not set in stone. “All those potential realities were based upon where I was choosing to be in every Now moment, and could be changed in this or any other Now moment, because within the Now lies all the power that ever was or ever will be, and nowhere else. “

In that first NDE – and his second, when he drowned 10 years later – he had life reviews. It was, he says, like a movie.

“I was experiencing it from three, or more, different perspectives simultaneously: as the giver, the receiver, and the neutral witness of every thought, word, and deed. I was the one doing, the one receiving what I was doing (and I was also those who were subsequently affected by those who were affected), and the one in the audience eating popcorn.

“The parts of “the movie”, where I had harmed others, felt almost unbearable as I myself had to experience the receiving end, and quickly pledged to never do anything like that again. Yet, at the same time it was all surrounded with unconditional love and forgiveness, because it was all about lessons and never about retribution. “

Prana was also given the “Five Laws of Creation.”   We – each of us – are always at the center of creation,   “We are always deciding - whether or not we are aware of it - with every single thought, emotion, word, and deed what we will experience next. And the more we evolve, the more possibilities we can experience simultaneously, yet none of them are Real, until we realize “God,” which is the aspect of us that is experiencing all possibilities simultaneously.”

An accomplished musician, Prana will also be playing the didgeridoo and his flutes for us!

Come welcome Prana - and bring your questions!

East Bay IANDS monthly meetings are open to near-death experiencers and non-experiencers alike.  We provide a respectful place to discuss and voice opinions and experiences. NO DOGMA! A $7-10 donation requested to help pay for rent and expenses; no one is turned away. Wheelchair-accessible.
