What near-death experiences tell us
NDE researcher Robert Mays will moderate a symposium on near-death experiences, A Journey to Heaven and Back sponsored by IANDS and by the Open Center in New York City on Saturday, November 23, 10 AM - 5:30 PM. The program will include NDErs Dr. Eben Alexander, Anita Moorjani and Lorna Byrne. We encourage you to come hear their remarkable accounts and explore the implications of these extraordinary experiences. The Early Bird Rate is $140 by November 2. Moderator Robert Mays offers the following preview:
In 2008, Eben Alexander came down with acute bacterial meningitis and was in deep coma for 6 days, with little chance for survival. Although his brain was severely compromised, he had a profound, ultra-real experience of an exquisite, heavenly realm. High above him shimmering angelic beings arced across the sky in glorious song, raising him higher and higher. He entered an immense void.

Eben Alexander public lecture August 29, 7 PM in Arlington, Virginia
Dr. Eben Alexander will give a public lecture My Journey to Heaven on Thursday evening, August 29, 7 PM at the Sheraton Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. Dr. Alexander was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from acute bacterial meningitis. He experienced a vivid journey into the afterlife during which he was guided by an angelic being and shown the Divine Source. He then returned to his physical body and experienced a miraculous healing.
Dr. Alexander confirms that our life on planet Earth is a "test" of personal growth, and that the way to make progress in this test is to overcome evil while spreading love and compassion.
