Paths to Healing and Wholeness: Near-death experiences (NDEs) often result in a greater sense of well-being and purpose in life. But the journey of integrating the experience is often fraught with challenges as well. NDErs themselves, the professionals who care for them and their families, and NDE educators and researchers, all have a role in helping NDErs stay on the path to healing and wholeness—and in helping humanity to use knowledge of NDEs to pursue this path. We invite you to join us as we explore this path together!
Healthcare-Education-Research-Science (HERS) Session (Thursday, all day): presentations by healthcare professionals, NDE educators and NDE researchers on exploring and applying our understanding of NDEs, for example, applying understanding of NDEs in psychiatry and counseling, training medical professionals and the military about NDEs, conducting research studies on the deeper aspects of NDEs and related phenomena, and developing theoretical perspectives on the non-material nature of the mind and consciousness.
General Session (Friday through Sunday noon): presentations by NDErs, clergy, social workers, researchers and others on the spiritual insights and wisdom of NDEs, near-death-like experiences and related phenomena. Workshops (priced separately) are offered in late afternoon Friday and Saturday, and all afternoon on Sunday.
