The DFW Friends of IANDS exists for people who've had near-death and/or related experiences or who have personal or professional interest in such experiences. The purpose of the group is to provide these people with a forum in which to discuss such experiences and their meaning and integration into subsequent life. Discussion takes place in an atmosphere of openness and interest/support without judgment, proselytizing, or advice-giving. Our meeting content varies from month to month. Sometimes we have a structured program, such as a speaker or watching a relevant video followed by discussion. Other times, we "circle up" and discuss our own NDEs and related experiences and their ongoing meaning in our lives. Although we meet in a Methodist church, the group is not affiliated with the Methodist--or any specific--religion. The church is conveniently located, and they gave us permission to use a meeting room without charge. However, those who attend and who can afford to do so are asked to make a $1 contribution to the church for our use of their meeting room Reply to this listing to have email contact regarding the details for this group and/or to have your e-ddress placed on a monthly e-reminder list.
March 11: Surprisingly few people understand the overwhelming nature of addiction to drugs and alcohol. Having succumbed to both addictions, in August of 2007 at the age of 45, David Morris overdosed on cocaine and had a near-death experience. Ever since, he has known he isn't a drug addict anymore. Join us on Wednesday, March 11, to hear David as he shares his incredibly uplifting story in person.
April 8: Despite no previous psychic or spiritual skills, Rebecca Austill-Clausen was spiritually transformed following her 37-year-old brother’s death when she discovered her ability to communicate with him. For the next 20 years Becky, a science-based expert in the field of occupational therapy, questioned her experience and doubted her sanity—and gradually gained the courage to share her journey in her award-winning book Change Maker. In addition to her work as a Reiki Master Teacher who primarily trains medical professionals at universities and professional conferences, Becky has received extensive training in shamanism, Celtic and Peruvian pathways, nature spirits, and complementary and integrative health modalities. She also is a hospice volunteer and entrepreneur who delights in facilitating spiritual discoveries during her validating workshops presented nationwide.
At our April 8 meeting, Becky will provide her After-Death Communication Techniques workshop in which participants will learn her 7-step experiential practice to enhance exchanges with deceased loved ones. Her book, now in its second printing, will be available for purchase at a special discounted $15 price. To defray costs and provide Becky with an honorarium, each attendee will be asked to pay $20 for the workshop, which will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. Following the workshop, attendees interested in continuing discussion with Becky may join us at the nearby IHOP located at the northeast intersection of Main St. and I-35E.
