Caregiver Sharing Group

A sharing group for individuals deeply committed for helping another in a situation facing a possible critical shutdown of vital functions. Join these dedicated group sessions — Third Mondays monthly, 5 pm Pacific/8 pm Eastern (see the dropdown at the top of this webpage to always display in your TZ).

Title: A sharing group for those caring for or knowing someone in the situation of being with an individual at or near the point of transition, the end of a life in a physical form – or – leaving and then returning for more until it becomes final, and caring for those that have had an STE or NDE. We are holding space for you to share your experience. This meeting is for talking about the challenges that are faced at the intersection of the NDE’r and the caregiver.

Purpose: To provide a safe environment for those in, or from, such a community to hear and share these extraordinary experiences.

Do you find an affinity with the phrase “left behind” or being somewhere between the known of “what was” and the new that is full of “letting go” with the adjustment that follows?

Christian Theme NDE/STE Discussion Group

Individuals often report having a being they identify as Jesus in their near-death or related spiritual experiences. This group is intended to provide a safe, validating opportunity to share individual experiences. This is not a forum to debate or deny another person’s experiences. All are welcome for the mission of loving and respecting individual experiences and differences of interpretation from religious themed experiences.

Title: A sharing group for those in, or from, a Christian community who have had, or are interested in, near-death or similar experiences.

Purpose: To provide a safe environment for those in, or from, such a community to hear and share these extraordinary experiences.

Are you a Christian who wonders how or if your NDE or other Spiritually Transformative Experience aligns with your faith? Are you struggling to integrate your experience and your religion? Come explore these questions with others having similar concerns. We will share our experiences and struggles and joys and dreams. We come from many different Christian traditions and will therefore hold a variety of views, so we commit to respecting all perspectives and seeing Christ in each other. This is a safe place of non-judgment. There is also no proselytizing. With open hearts we can discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among and within us. While this Sharing Session contains Christian content, it is open to all who feel called to join us.

About the facilitator

The Rev. Stephanie Chase Bradbury has been an Episcopal Priest for 25 years and has professionally counseled many people who’ve had NDE’s and STE’s. She herself has had a number of Spiritually Transformative Experiences beginning at age 6. Stephanie is drawn to the bright overlap between matter and spirit, and how life in this reality is intertwined with the transcendent. She feels called to act as a translator to a world that is often blind to the astonishing wonder of All That Is, and help facilitate the processing of those who have been touched by the extraordinary. Stephanie has led retreats, spoken at Boston IANDS gatherings, and been interviewed for the Leap from Within podcast. While grounded in the Christian tradition, Stephanie welcomes insight both from within organized religions and beyond. You can learn more at Grannypriest.com.

“There and Back Again … an extraordinary journey into the forever.”

Before my experience I had never painted in my life and would struggle to paint simple stick figures. Several years after I had my NDE I was compelled to paint the ‘living colors’ that I had seen on the other side. I started to experiment and found that I could enter a ‘zone’ and so I began to paint until I was finally able to reproduce the living colors I had seen. These paintings represent, not only to me, but to many that have my art, ‘what Heaven looks like’ or that they are a ‘Glimpse of Heaven’. Sat. Jan. 2, 2021, 10:00 am PST (1:00 pm EST)

A Message of Hope and Inspiration for 2021 with Jose Hernandez and his art!

I would like to introduce everyone to the world of not only my near-death experience but of all the beauty that I saw which I now translate into art.  My experience of death was stunningly beautiful and filled with the essence of pure love and peace but at first it was traumatic.

This was because of my belief system, or rather, a lack thereof, and it made me truly struggle with the integration of my experience.  After years of therapy and denial, I was finally able to embrace and accept my NDE.  It was then that I began to recapture my experience through painting digitally and was able to bring into this life the color that I saw at Heaven’s Gate.

I was blessed years later with an opportunity to be in the docu-series ‘Surviving Death’ where I am featured in the first episode which focuses on near-death experiences.

Bio

Jose was an electrical engineer, a self-described atheist and closed minded skeptic when, at age 46, after a minor accident at work, he was administered medication in the ER that he was severely allergic to. That mundane mistake changed Jose’s life completely as the damage to his lungs from the reaction to the medication became severe and he was brought back to the ER where he flat lined for a total of 5 minutes. There, he experienced a journey that shattered every belief in ‘science’ he had held dear.

Boom! The Life and Times of a Suicide Near-Death Experiencer

At six months Chris was thrown into a dumpster by his biological mother. This became the root for suicidal thoughts throughout his life, eventually leading to a suicide attempt, when he experienced his NDE. During his NDE he met angels who have helped him in his love for working with kids. Join us January 8th at 6:00 pm PST (9 pm EST) to hear his amazing story!

Arizona IANDS presents…

Chris Batts is an author and motivational speaker who had a near-death experience after a suicide attempt. He was born in Southern California, where at 6 months old was thrown into a dumpster by his biological mother.  That, and never experiencing love as a child nor having any family who cared about him, became the root of suicidal thoughts throughout life,  eventually leading to his suicide attempt by throwing himself out of a speeding car at age 24.  After being removed from his mothers care by the courts, he grew up in many foster homes.

In his book “Boom- The Life and Times of a Suicide Near Death Experiencer”, Chris goes in detail about his life, what led up to his suicide attempt and how his life has changed since. He was  taken to the spiritual realm and experienced telepathic thoughts from God of Pure Love, but was overwhelmed because he didn’t believe in any of this. He met many Angels in this realm, including two whom seemed very familiar to him, and whom he is still in contact with to date. These two Angels continue working with him to help guide his understanding of how the Spiritual Realm works.

One of Chris’s strongest missions is to get the word out about suicide prevention, saying “many people who go through dark times and depression don’t realize how much they are loved,”

Chris loves music and sign language. He is currently attending college pursuing a Deaf Studies major, with the goal of becoming an interpreter.

IANDS Stellar Speakers Series presents… A Second in Eternity

A professional psychic for decades, Gary L. Wimmer will speak in detail about his intense and life-changing 1977 near-death experience (NDE) and what it revealed about the current and future challenges facing all of humanity. He considers himself one of the luckiest of people for being shown how clearly ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’ is coming into view during the decades ahead to all who seek it. Sat. Dec. 19, 2020, 10:00 am PST (1:00 pm EST)

Gary L Wimmer began studying psychic ability during the late 60s in college while studying Electrical Engineering, and started giving readings professionally in 1974. In 1977, he had a life-changing “near-death experience” (NDE) that revealed the Unity that underlies all things, and shed light on the “World Revolution” we are currently experiencing and its affects on all of humanity. Life always guarantees change, and it is often through change and the unexpected that we learn to see matters from a new and more enlightened perspective.

For example, Gary recognizes that Covid-19, manifesting as humankind’s latest major “curve ball” is Infinite Mind acting through Nature to encourage mankind to reevaluate everything and make new priorities.

Gary has spoken in depth about these necessary changes during numerous interviews and during his recent radio show.

 That intense and enlightening 1977 NDE still profoundly inspires and motivates Gary to this day, and he wrote about it in detail in his book, A SECOND IN ETERNITY. SEE:

garywimmer.com/writer/eternity.htm

As a professional psychic for over forty-five years, Gary has been referred to as a medium, intuitive, healer, teacher, spiritualist, and clairvoyant. SEE: http://lithomancy.com. He is the author of LITHOMANCY, THE PSYCHIC ART OF READING STONES, the only comprehensive book on the amazingly revealing methodology he uses, known as Lithomancy. SEE: http://garywimmer.com/writer/litho_book.htm

In his presentation Gary will address questions such as: Who or what is God? How can we learn to “read the signs” and develop our natural psychic abilities? What is the best use of free will? What is our collective past and our collective destiny? Is there life after death and what is it like? How much is written in stone and how much affect do we have? He still offers readings over the phone. Both of his books are available on Amazon and Kindle.

Bio:

Gary studied Electrical Engineering at Texas Tech University 1965-1970. Always curious about God, life and the Universe, during the late 60s, he became interested in psychic ability and began reading the works of psychics and spiritualists like Edgar Cayce, Madame Blavatsky and Ruth Montgomery, stirring his curiosity and opening him up to his own abilities. He began giving readings in 1974. In 1977, he had an intensely illuminating NDE, which took him to the worlds beyond and to the infinite power and creativity of The Source, changing his life forever. He still offers readings and does interviews.
