Workshop with Mark Anthony, the Psychic Lawyer® aka the Psychic Explorer®

May the Force Be with You: Near-Death Experiences and Interdimensional Communication ($70)

Friday, August 31, 4:30-6:30 PM

Many respected people in ancient and modern times have reported a Near Death Experience (NDE) and receiving communication from spirits. Some of these luminaries include: Plato, Apostle Paul, Mozart, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor and George Lucas. In fact, “The Force”, a concept developed by George Lucas for the Star Wars films was influenced by his NDE. “The Force” is not Hocus Pocus, but rather another way of explaining Quantum Physics which is the basis for understanding the afterlife and the reality of Near Death Experiences. Mark Anthony will demonstrate how Near Death Experiences, Life After Death and Interdimensional Communication (Contact with Spirits) is based on sound scientific principles, quantum physics and human physiology. He will demonstrate how these Spiritually Transformative Experiences can not only help people lose their fear of death but how they also expand one’s consciousness to an elevated state of being.

This entertaining, educational and uplifting presentation by Mark Anthony the Psychic Lawyer® author of the best-selling books Evidence of Eternity and Never Letting Go is for anyone who has wondered if there truly is life beyond physical death. Mark’s spellbinding speaking style, humor and knowledge combined with colorful visual aids will take the audience on a mystical yet logical journey into the Science of the Afterlife.

Workshop with Robin Aisha Landsong

Becoming a Health Intuitive/Medical Intuitive ($55)

Friday, August 31, 4:30-6:30 PM

Robin Aisha Landsong had two Near-Death Experiences at eight years old during the Rhodesian War in 1977. The rural African women and men who saved her life, also taught her how to listen for the Medicine Song that each person carries within them. These experiences opened and inspired her to become a visual artist, writer, Health Intuitive, and Medicine Singer. She has practiced Cranio-sacral Therapy for over 15 years, and has given Singing Medicine to over 10,000 people. The objectives of this workshop are:
1.      Review how three of my six Near Death Experiences were a catalyst for me to become a Health Intuitive.
2.      Review how growing up with dangerous adults forced my development to quickly read people’s intent and mental health status.
3.      Share three of my drawings that illustrate how I see into the human body.
4.      Describe the benefits I received through training so I could refine my raw gift into a professional skill.
5.      Share a few cases of patients who presented with mystery illnesses that evaded traditional Western diagnosis and successful treatment. Illustrate how my ability to see, and directly know underlying cause for my patient’s ill health was efficient, empowering for the patient, and successful in find cause and remedy.

Workshop with Peter Panagore

A Stranger Living In a Strange Land: A Secret Inner Life ($40)

Friday, August 31, 4:30-6:30 PM

My presentation begins with a six-minute descriptive poetry reading over twenty slides lasting six minutes to catch-up the audience about my first NDE while ice climbing so that we have a common starting place to talk about living with, and cultivating, the strange aftereffects of NDE.My aftereffects story includes the usual—electromagnetic interference, breaking watches, love of all, dream visions, near constant déjà vu, non-attachment, feeling alien, longing for Heaven, depression, naiveté, struck by lightening, no fear of death, hearing plants, seeing the dead, a change in the course of my life, knowing I am an immortal soul and living as if I am, intimate interactions with wild animals (my grown children call me Snow White), etc. I will focus on sharing the unusual and deeper aftereffects of NDE such as repeated, witnessed, and prolonged states of Divine Mystical Union, the resulting divine healing and wisdom messages that marked my soul that came from each OBE event. I will share the practical spiritual tools that I have used for forty years to open my mind and open my heart to transportive and uplifting grace of God, the Nameless One. I end with a 1: 55-minute production that I shot on my iPhone in 2016 for TV of when I returned to the place I died and found more healing.

"Embodying the Binding Force of Love" ($70)

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.

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 or Joy Born out of Heaven's Lessons ($40)

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

Mary Neal: I have spoken to the IANDS group in the past regarding my 1999 NDE after drowning while kayaking in South America. In the past, I have 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 that 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 borne of my transformational NDEs is available to all people, not just those who have had a spiritually profound experience.

Rebecca Valla: Living From our True Selves: The Process of Self-Love and Self-Transformation: 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 of love – ourselves and others. This comes from the authentic self – which can also be described as the true self. The powerful energy of this heart connection, is the source of joy and inner peace that is described so often in the accounts of Near-Death Experiences. “All is well”, and we are loved and “watched over” throughout our lives more than we have ever been aware. In this Workshop format, I intend to review the concepts of True Self/False Self; Inner Child Healing; and Self-Love and it’s importance for Self-forgiveness and Self-empowerment.

Workshop with Janie Thompson & Jan Holden

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

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

Jan HoldenResearchers 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.
