Workshop with Eben Alexander & Karen Newell

“Embodying the Binding Force of Love” ($70)

Saturday, September 1, 4:30-6:30 PM

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.

Workshop with Paul Aurand

“Essential Healing – A Life Changing, Transformational Workshop” ($40)

Saturday, September 1, 4:30-6:30 PM

Standing in the street, on a sunny day in July 1998, I was struck by lightning. Electrocuted, convulsing, unconscious, dead. During my brief dead time I was transformed. Following this “en-lightning” experience I began my search for a way to help others achieve this same transformation without the trauma of being killed. In time I came to Life Between Lives regression and from that I have developed NDE Regression. I would like to demonstrate for you how NDE Regression can be used to re-experience many of the transformational aspects of an NDE. By watching this live demonstration, you will see how it is possible to return to that state of unconditional love and oneness to recover memories, messages, and gifts from guides and loved ones.

Workshop with Mary Neal & Rebecca Valla

Living in Joy Means Living in Trust: Lessons from an NDE, and Those from a Life of Spiritual Growth; Both Lead to the Process of Self-transformation ($40)

Sunday, September 2, 2:30-4:30 PM

In this workshop format, Mary Neal and Rebecca Valla will pose self-reflective questions; answer them from our own experience (one an NDEr, one not); and facilitate the transformational process for each participant. The intention is for lively interaction, focused discussion, and hopefully, the gift of lasting inspiration to take away and use toward a joy-filled life.

Mary Neal: I have spoken to the IANDS group in the past regarding my 1999 NDE after drowning while kayaking in South America. I had focused primarily on the story-telling aspect of my experience and less on the lessons contained within the experience. I have discovered that what I learned not only changed my own life, but these lessons have the ability to change the daily life of others. In sharing these lessons with other people, I hope to show that the joy-filled life that was born of my transformational NDEs is available to all people, not just those who have had a spiritually profound experience.

Rebecca Valla: NDErs, life-long spiritual seekers, and those who have worked through and healed serious psychic wounds arrive at the same place, which is a knowledge that we are in this life experience to love-ourselves and others. We must come to know, and trust, our authentic self, which is our higher-self connection. This “trust” relationship is a heart connection. Its’ powerful energy is the source of joy and inner peace that is described so often in the accounts of NDE’s. “All is well”and we are loved and “watched over” throughout our lives more than we have ever known.

Workshop with Jan Holden & Louisa Peck

After the NDE: Managing the Challenges of Spontaneous Mediumship Experiences ($40)

Sunday, September 2, 2:30-4:30 PM

Researchers have recently identified the near-death experience (NDE) aftereffect of spontaneous mediumship experiences (SMEs) in which the experiencer (NDEr) is visited uninvited by a deceased entity asking the NDEr to do their bidding, most often to convey a message to another living person. This workshop will be provided by two people: a mental health professional specializing in transpersonal experiences and aftereffects, and an NDEr who experienced numerous aftereffects, many of them challenging or distressing such as SMEs—and who developed strategies to cope effectively with them. Together the workshop presenters will provide SMErs with a forum in which to discuss their experiences and share coping strategies. Jan Holden, NDE researcher with Louisa Peck, NDEr.
