Dr. Mary Neal’s life was transformed when she drowned on a South American river while kayaking with friends. During her thirty minutes underwater, she was held by Christ, experienced a surprising life review, went to heaven, and was then returned to her body. She was told about some future events, including the coming death of her oldest son and has experienced many tangible miracles. She believes an unshakable trust in God’s promises creates joy that transcends one’s circumstances, lights the world, and allows each one of us to become God’s messengers of love.

In the diversity of Near-Death Experiences, perhaps the most universal experience and therefore the lost luminous message is the reality that we are all ONE.

We are not only connected to each other, but connected to Divine Source. It is time to remember our origins and who we truly are, so that humanity can step into higher consciousness and a more compassionate way of being.

In 1997 Olsen experienced a horrific auto accident, which took the lives of half his family and nearly killed him. At the time of his accident, Olsen had incredible Out-of-Body and Near-Death Experiences, bringing him insights not common in today’s world. Jeff has integrated these experiences into everyday life, inspiring others to embrace the light within themselves and to choose joy and true connection in all they do.

Choosing joy and connection is a profound step toward oneness; oneness with the universe, oneness in relationships, and perhaps most importantly, oneness with one’s self.
Jeffery Olsen is a best-selling author who inspires audiences internationally with his intriguing story of perseverance and inner strength. After a horrific automobile accident took the lives of his wife and youngest son, also inflicting multiple life-threatening injuries to Jeff (including the amputation of his left leg) he found the courage to survive over 18 surgeries and eventually heal both physically and emotionally. At the time of his accident, Olsen had incredible Out-of-Body and Near-Death Experiences, bringing him insights not common in today’s world. Jeff has integrated these experiences into everyday life, inspiring others to embrace the beauty around them and choose joy in all they do. Olsen’s latest book, WHERE ARE YOU? is a collaboration with his oldest son Spencer, who also survived the accident at the age of seven. They have captured in a simple and powerful way their healing journey through the innocent perspective of that seven-year-old child and have created a heartfelt book for all ages. Among Jeff’s many accomplishments, he is most fulfilled by simply being a husband, father and friend. www.EnvoyPublishing.com

I died three times in three months in 1977, and each time had a near-death experience and each was different. In my third, a voice larger than big told me and I quote: “Test revelation. You are to do the research. One book for each death.” Book one was not named (I suspect it was my first one – COMING BACK TO LIFE). Book two: FUTURE MEMORY. Book three: A MANUAL FOR DEVELOPING HUMANS. Being a cop’s kid raised in a police station, I used police investigative techniques as my protocol. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, whom I met at O’Hare Airport near Chicago, listened to my story, and said I was a near-death survivor. She never mentioned Raymond Moody, nor had I heard of him or his famous book. In my first episode of “living the future before it occurred,” I saw myself quitting my bank job and moving to Falls, Church, Virginia. This I did, and began my work interviewing others like myself, a work that has continued unabated for 44 years.
PMH Atwater, L.H.D., had three near-death experiences in three months in 1977. This turned her life around completely. The following year she turned to research, because of what she was told to do during her third episode – and became one of the original in the field of near-death studies, completing 18 books on or related to the subject. Some of her findings have been verified in clinical settings, among them the prospective study done in Holland and published in Lancet. To date, her work covers nearly 5,000 adult and child experiencers

Both the EMS and the Collective Consciousness explain why during the different forms of spiritual contact people report experiencing a sense of interconnectedness and timelessness.

Just don’t expect a dry lecture. Combining his dynamic speaking style with a colorful PowerPoint presentation Mark Anthony, JD Psychic Explorer takes you on an
an entertaining and educational journey from the cosmic to the subatomic and even into the human soul itself.

NDEs in Salt Lake City: The Luminous Mormon View of Near-Death Phenomena

Jeffrey O'Driscoll, MD

MT
Room 1 (Grand Ballroom)
60
Minutes
Without discussing the rightness or wrongness of Mormonism, this presentation explains why many Mormons comfortably embrace near-death experiences. While much of the western Judeo-Christian world looks askance at NDEs and related phenomena, most Mormons, or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as they prefer to be called, view glimpses of eternity and end-of-life phenomena as normal, scriptural, and edifying. Indeed, though Mormons use a different nomenclature than the NDE community, they accept the eternal and divine nature of the human soul, communications with Deity, and after-death communications as a basis for belief at a personal level and as the source of Mormon doctrine at an institutional level. While such experiences are considered sacred, sharing them is acceptable and sometimes encouraged. When spiritual and faith traditions understand one another’s lexicon, they may realize they are much nearer a timeless oneness than they ever imagined.
After decades of silence, award-winning author and international speaker, Dr. Jeff O’Driscoll, finally share spiritual experiences from his 25 years in the emergency department. He saw souls leave their bodies at death and communicated with them and sometimes received impressions about how to care for his patients. His experiences began in childhood, after his brother died in a farm accident. After stepping away from clinical medicine, he published his compelling memoir, NOT YET, and works to help others understand their spiritual experiences

Oneness, Love, and God: Groundbreaking New Insights from a Survey of 834 Near-Death Experiencers

Minutes
A survey of 834 near-death experiencers (NDErs) was conducted. The survey included questions asking about awareness during their NDEs regarding: 1. Any specific information / awareness that a mystical universal connection or unity/oneness exists? 2. Any specific information / awareness regarding love? 3. Any specific information / awareness that God or a supreme being exists? A remarkably high percentage of NDErs answered ‘Yes’ to these questions- 47.1%, 57.1%, and 48.0% to questions one through three, respectively. All three of these questions allowed a narrative response. These narrative responses showed remarkably consistent insights: 1. NDErs often found that a mystical universal connection/unity/oneness really exists. 2. NDErs often describe the unearthly love in their NDEs as a part of everything, as if love connects everyone and everything. 3. God is often described as beyond earthly words and is a reality.
Jeffrey Long, M.D. is a radiation oncology physician living in Houma, Louisiana. Over 20 years ago he founded the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (nderf.org). Dr. Long has investigated over 3500 near-death experiences (NDEs), which is by far the largest number of NDEs ever scientifically studied. Portions of the NDERF website have been posted in over 30 languages allowing global outreach. The results of his previous research were published in the New York Times bestselling book Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences. Millions of people have seen Dr. Long discuss his research on shows including the NBC Today Show, The Dr. Oz Show, National Geographic television, History Channel, The O’Reilly Factor, and on television broadcasts around the world

The presentation will show how the NDE, while being tailored to the individual, provides universal lessons that can help in daily life. People are divided by race, nationality, religion, etc. because we have forgotten that we are literally all One. Many times fundamentalists will attack NDE experiencers because their experience falls outside the bounds of that particular religion or conflicts with Atheistic Materialism.

NDE Evidence and the Next Steps in Mind-Brain Research

Room 1 (Grand Ballroom)
60
Minutes
NDEs provide strong evidence that the nonmaterial mind is a separate entity that interfaces with the brain in ordinary consciousness—a view that requires a radical shift in neuroscience. Earlier scientific revolutions like the heliocentric view of the heavens took more than a century to be accepted whereas more recent revolutions like the structure of the atom took less than 20 years. The difference was the ability to provide convincing evidence and a model of the new paradigm to other scientists. We present the NDE evidence for the separate mind entity and a model of, and evidence for, mind-brain interaction. There is good NDE evidence that the nonmaterial mind interacts with physical matter including neural mechanisms and there is good neurological evidence from neural structures and anesthesiology that suggests an interface for the mind to work with the brain. What is needed now is a research program to validate this model of mind-brain interaction.
Robert and Suzanne Mays have studied NDE phenomena together for over 40 years, although neither has had an NDE. They are particularly interested in veridical perceptions during NDEs and apparent interactions during NDEs between the NDEr and physical reality, as well as the neurological evidence of the interaction of the nonmaterial mind with the brain during ordinary consciousness, especially in language comprehension and in memory formation and recall. Their current areas of focus are on (1) NDErs’ prophetic visions of world events, (2) describing the nature of the transcendent realm as is evident in NDEr accounts, and (3) understanding the nature of consciousness as an individuated mind-entity directly interacting with a physical body and brain, as opposed to a non-localized entity spread out across all of existence, transmitting to and receiving from the physical brain

We are at a pivotal moment in human history: A new species of Human is emerging. We have the opportunity to evolve into this new consciousness – or not. We all feel and witness the struggle between the age-old focus on ego, greed, power struggles and competition – vs – a new focus on the heart, cooperation, and Oneness with all beings we share this world with. During my NDE, I was taught that the 2 greatest challenges humans are here to explore and develop are: 1) Learning to consciously use, and create with, the power of our thoughts, rather than destroy with unconscious, repetitive, negative thinking; and 2) the importance of how we show up in our relationships – with people, the environment, and ourSelves. I will recount my NDE, and how working with these 2 teachings dramatically enhanced my life. I will share specific ways you can use the power of your thoughts and heart to co-create with the Universe, connect with the Oneness – and birth the new species within yourself.
Barbara Ireland is on a mission is to help birth the emerging, new species of human, Homo Diamondis – through the development of the conscious use of our thoughts and the power of the heart. She is author of the Amazon bestseller, “How To Stop Negative Thoughts: What My Near Death Experience Taught Me About Mind Loops, Neuroscience, and Happiness,” and contributing author to “The Transformative Power of Near-Death Experiences: How the Messages of NDEs Can Positively Impact the World.” She is founder of The De-Looping Method that uses neuroscience to interrupt repetitive, negative thoughts, and is creator of the Blueprint For Magic method of conscious-creating (both based on her NDE). Ireland trains individuals, foundations, and corporations (Boeing and others) to stop worry, raise self-esteem, and develop skill in joyful, conscious-creating.

Multiple times, in multiple ways, over my lifetime I’ve experienced Oneness. I said nothing for decades. Instead, I put The Ineffable into action, or rather allowed It to act through me, when facing division, judgmental attitudes, and self-righteousness interests. It’s less that I have diminished feelings of conflict, alienation, fear of punishment, and death. It’s more that I know what I am, who I am, where I am from, and to where I am going. The Living Remembrance compels me to care for others even by putting myself at risk for strangers. Touching Timelessness leaves me living in a constant state of déjà vu. Expressions of compassion and love naturally and unavoidably arise from a transcendental Union experience. I will talk about all of this and, inshallah, create a space combining our collective Luminous selves to multiple, and experience, the Radiance among us and feel the Essence of Love together.
International Audible Best-Selling author of Heaven Is Beautiful (optioned for a film), Peter Panagore, MDiv., first died in 1980 while ice climbing and died again in 2015 of a heart attack. Both times he chose to return to life the sake of love and caring. Peter earned his BA in English at the University of Massachusetts and his MDiv at Yale, focusing on Western Mysticism, and then served progressive church communities for two decades in New England. Recruited to television, Peter spent fifteen years writing stories of hope and inspiration for his daily broadcast on NBC-TV during News Center Maine, reaching eighty thousand viewers a day as a cultural influencer and renown storyteller.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (“Mormon” Church) was founded in 1830 by 24 year old Joseph Smith, based on a vision which had many NDE elements. Later he visited by an angel who, after delivering a message, departed through a tunnel into heaven. Once a mob beat him, and left him for dead. During assault Smith watched the rest of the assault from above, when his spirit left his body. From 1784 to the present thousands of Latter-day Saints have had extensive NDEs, including Mormon leader, Jedediah Grant. In 1920 a Mormon leader from Idaho, Heber Hale, shared his NDE in the Church’s conference. Details of these and other NDEs in Mormon Faith, in Judaism, early Christianity and other faiths will be described. Presenter will conclude with the suggestion tradition religions should not be skeptical of NDEs. Neither should those who accept NDEs be skeptical of tradition religion. Both share common roots.

Mystical Experiencers report that the ethereal Oneness experienced throughout a Transcendent state is a sublime peak experience, which radically alters one’s Life trajectory. Medicinal storytelling, including yet not limited to Near-Death Experiences, document how these experiences radically alter collective consciousness and inspire others to more aligned ways of Being. Yet, authentic embodiment of our Spiritual knowing is a notable challenge for seekers of all paths, as we are recurrently confronted with the dichotomy between our awakening and the realities of our complex and fragile humanity. This lecture, offered humbly by a perfectly imperfect experiencer and healer, explores the cultural phenomenon of Spiritual bypassing to highlight the need for integration of our human complexities and grounded embodiment of our Light, so we may shine as a relatable source of authentic connection to those we are blessed to inspire and serve.

Brooke Grove, MA, MFT, is a poly-trauma survivor, near death experiencer and multi-disciplinary integrative healer in co-creation with Spirit.

In this presentation, you will discover how during Ingrid’s NDE, while navigating in the spirit realm, she saw her mom who was about 10 min away from the place where Ingrid was drowning, and thanks to the strong connection between them, her mom was able to sense Ingrid’s presence. And then, by following her intuition and inner guidance she was able to find Ingrid’s lifeless body sunk at the bottom of a tank filled with frigid water, and to save her. Ingrid came back from the other realm to confirm that connection and communication between realms is absolutely real. When she grew up, Ingrid had a second NDE and not long after the Beings of Light revealed to her that one of the purposes of her NDEs was to bring back the message of the importance of connection which is essential to reuniting with our neighbors in Oneness. True Connection can only be achieved through Unconditional Love. Nowadays Ingrid is still communicating and learning from the Beings of Light and the spirit realm.
From the moment of her NDE at the age of two, Ingrid was aware of other dimensions of life than those most of us normally experience. She was also gifted with the wise input of “Beings of Light” who gave her invaluable insights and assistance as she faced the challenges of growing up and finding her professional destiny as an oceanographer. Throughout her life journey from her native Colombia to Europe and her eventual home in the USA — and from a deadly war zone to underwater explorations and a NASA research center — Ingrid teaches how any human experience can be illumined from within when we are tuned in with inner guidance
