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.OPEN TO EVERYONE including researchers and others who seek affirmation and greater awareness of these extraordinary experiences!
We invite you to submit a proposal for a workshop, lecture presentation, panel session, poster presentation or art display that meets one or more of the following objectives.
Conference Objectives, based on the Conference theme:
We welcome proposals for workshops, lecture presentations, panel sessions, poster presentations and art displays that meet one or more of these objectives.
Note: presentations of individual NDE stories will be scheduled on one of the NDEr Panels. If you want to be considered for an NDEr panel, specify that in the abstract. The Objectives, Outline and Degrees sections then do not need to be filled in.
IANDS Policy: IANDS’ purpose is to promote responsible, multi-disciplinary exploration of near-death and similar experiences. IANDS is impartial and open to the presentation of varying points of view. While all personal beliefs are respected, IANDS does not support proselytizing or promoting personal religious beliefs.
Proposal submission deadline is Sunday, January 7, 2018, 11:59 PM EST.
