Aftereffects of NDEs: 2018 IANDS Conference – Bellevue, WA

August 30, 2018 - September 2, 2018

Explore the Extraordinary: Aftereffects of Near-Death Experiences

People who have had an extraordinary experience in their lives often change their perspective on human relationships and may develop special abilities to help others. The aftereffects of an Near-Death (NDE) or Spiritually Transformative Experience (STE) often prove to be the initiation of profound changes. We seek to provide a deeper understanding of these gifts, which allow all to live life with love, hope, joy, compassion, awareness, and connection to others. The conference features many speakers and workshop leaders including: Eben Alexander, Mary Neal, Pim van Lommel, Bruce Greyson, Mary Helen Hensley, Mark Anthony, Jeffrey Olsen and more.

OPEN TO EVERYONE including researchers and others who seek affirmation and greater awareness of these extraordinary experiences!

Eben Alexander, MD: General Session | Thursday, August 30 | Keynote Presentation

Thriving in the Heart of Consciousness

In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander’s brain was severely damaged by a devastating case of bacterial meningitis, and he lapsed into a week-long coma during which time he had an extraordinarily vivid NDE, documented in his best-selling book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife.  But the journey didn’t stop there. In the sequel, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, he relates what has happened in the nine years since, including after-effects and how he continues to connect to the other side. Follow along through encounters with scientists, scholars, philosophers and other experiencers to understand his revolutionary new vision of science, our perceived reality and profound truths about the universe we inhabit.

There is much more to our so-called reality than what we can see, hear, smell, touch and taste. The entire scientific community is facing a conundrum: how to explain that consciousness is merely a byproduct of the brain when overwhelming evidence suggests otherwise. Ultimately, direct experience is the key to fully understanding how we are all connected through the binding force of unconditional love and its unlimited power to heal. As we begin to realize precisely how to harness that love, our world will thrive in the heart of consciousness through direct experience and gnosis.

Dr. Eben Alexander & Karen Newell: Workshop | Saturday, September 1, 4:30-6:30 PM

Embodying the Binding Force of Love

Becoming aware of the reality of consciousness and the binding force of love will lead to unprecedented individual growth and understanding. As each of us discovers how to tap into the love that is available to each of us and radiate it to others, together we can shift the current predominant world paradigm into one that acknowledges the oneness and inter-connectedness of all.

Join New York Times best-selling author Eben Alexander MD and Karen Newell, co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, for an experiential sound journey and ride on the power of group energy and innovative audio technology to achieve thinning of the veil and journey into the heart of consciousness.
