Austin IANDS Chapter In The News

PatJohnsonAn article in the Austin American Statesman from September 1, 2014 describes the near-death experiences of Pat Johnson while he was kayaking on the Blanco River. Johnson was with a friend when the kayak tipped over and he was trapped underwater for a number of minutes. During this time Johnson had a near-death experience where he saw light streaming through a stained-glass window and he was surrounded by "multitudes of souls". He felt overwhelming love, forgiveness and peace.

When he was revived, Johnson searched for answers and found IANDS. His experience drew him to help others who had similar experiences, and he now leads the Central Texas Chapter of IANDS in Austin.

Esquire article on Eben Alexander distorts the facts

Commentary by NDE researcher Robert Mays - revised August 21, 2013

Luke DittrichDr. Eben AlexanderLuke Dittrich, contributing editor at Esquire, wrote an article critical of Dr. Eben Alexander's book Proof of Heaven. Dittrich cited several malpractice lawsuits against Dr. Alexander, in some of which the allegation was that Alexander had altered medical records to cover his errors. Dittrich makes this his theme for critiquing the story of Alexander's NDE, that Alexander altered the facts of his story to make them more dramatic. In particular, Dittrich questioned the central premise of the book, that Alexander's experience was the result of a brain all but destroyed by meningitis. Alexander's hyper-real experience of the heavenly Gateway Realm with the beautiful girl on the butterfly wing and the knowledge he gained from The Core, were all hallucinations resulting from a medically induced coma. Alexander thereby stood to gain financially. But how careful was Luke Dittrich with the facts he presented?  (PDF:  Full article)

Week Long News Segment on NDEs


In 1962, Nancy Clark was in the midst of a difficult childbirth when she left her body and found herself in the presence of a soothing and calming light. Her near death experience was profound, but she did not find the words to speak about it until she read Raymond Moody's Life after Life in 1976.  Nancy has since become a group leader for an IANDS group in Ohio.

This story and other stories of near death experiences are being featured in a week long segment on Cleveland's Fox 8 News. You can see stories of Nancy's NDE and Howard Storm's distressing NDE by watching Fox 8 or viewing the videos of the segments on the Fox 8 website. Archive of all stories.

Did Edgar Cayce have an NDE?


Edgar Cayce's life was punctuated with remarkable experiences.  He spent years fascinating the public and producing thousands of recorded cases of readings and healings.  Cayce would enter an altered state and communicate with non-physical entities who spoke through him providing information and guidance.  His talents and abilities are legendary, and now there is evidence that Cayce had an NDE while a child.

Neil Helm, Scholar in Residence at Atlantic University at the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach has found evidence in the archives that Edgar Cayce drown and was pronounced dead at the age of 5.  He was revived but kept his experience a secret for many years.  Helm writes about this experience and his exploration of the Cayce Vault in the April through June Issue of Venture Inward in the article Did Edgar Cayce have a Near Death Experience (pp. 44-46).

The Perfect Pattern of Life Revealed

LynnclaireDennisLynnclaire Dennis had a Near Death Experience in 1987 after an accident in a hot air balloon.  The experience included the vision of a "beautiful and loving light" that she instinctively recognized as the pattern of all life.  Though many NDEs include the vision of a light, this one was different.   In a life review during the NDE, Lynnclaire was informed of her mission in life.  Lynnclaire returned to the physical world with a mission to recall and understand the perfect pattern that she encountered in the light.

For years, Lynneclaire explored the patterns in this light using lucid dreams, visions, among other techniques. The pattern caught the attention of mathematicians and scientists, and the Mereon Matrix is now a topic of academic study.

You can read a complete description of her amazing journey here.
