AFTEREFFECTS OF NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES

A Deeper Understanding and Sharing of the Gifts

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 offer presentations in two tracks each day

  • General Track: presentations by NDErs, clergy, social workers, researchers and others on the spiritual insights and wisdom of NDEs, near-death-like experiences and related phenomena.
  • Healthcare-Education-Research-Science (HERS) Track: 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.
