An ISGO is much like a face-to-face IANDS group, only online and not limited by geography. Here you can connect with a community of mutual caring and respect from around the world. ISGOs are a safe space to share and explore, guided by facilitators to promote respect for individual uniqueness. As an initiative of IANDS, you will have access to the highest quality information available about near death and related subjects in the world.
Open to everyone with a sincere interest for understanding these extraordinary experiences are also welcome.
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.
