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.

Creating the Life YOU Envision Series

Are you ready to release stuck energies and heal old wounds from your past? Gain a broader perspective, see the blessings, and improve your life because of – not in spite of – difficult changes and challenges. This technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living. You can share this technique with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

Creating the Life You Envision*** with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
Saturday, February 27 at 10 am PST (1 pm EST) [rescheduled from Nov. 28]

5. Heal and Transform Your Suffering

*** This is the fifth of 10 independent presentation & interactive-oriented sessions… (this was formerly called “The Greater Reality Living Series”)***.

DESCRIPTION 

Are you ready to release stuck energies and heal old wounds from your past?  (These could be from during this earthly experience, or possibly other times and places.)  This technique can help you gain a broader perspective, see the blessings to adversity, and improve your life because of – not in spite of – these difficult changes and challenges.

Dr. Pitstick will use deep relaxation and visual imagery to help you heal and create the greatest life you have envisioned. In this session, you have an opportunity to heal and transform three past events with recharging time in between.  You can revisit and work on three different events or three aspects of the same one.

To fully benefit from this technique, focus on his suggestions instead of zoning out.  If the details of any experiences are too uncomfortable, you can just sit quietly and not continue participating in that time / place.  Or, your awareness can “rise above” and watch from your past challenges as though watching a movie as a passive observer.

Dr. Pitstick has used deep relaxation and visual imagery techniques with thousands of persons in private sessions and groups since earning his clinical psychology masters’ degree in 1980.  During the actual technique during this webinar, your audio and video will be blocked so you can relax in the privacy of your home during this group experience.

Recommendations Before the Session

  • Be rested since the induction techniques used are very conducive to sleep.
  • If possible, sit up instead of lying down during the session.
  • Eat a light, healthy meal beforehand so you aren’t hungry or have low blood sugar.
  • Avoid excess caffeine or sugar for 48 hours.
  • Avoid using alcohol or recreational drugs for at least three days beforehand.
  • Get as relaxed as possible before the experience.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that will not bind as you sit still for 45 minutes.
  • Bring lip salve to prevent dry lips during the open-mouth breathing.
  • Drink water and use the bathroom just before your session.
  • Turn off all phones, pagers, or other potentially interrupting devices

Recommendations After the Session

  • Enjoy some quiet time to internalize your lessons, insights, and inner peace.
  • Be careful and really focus if you drive soon afterwards.
  • Keep a journal to note any additional insights that arrive in dream or waking states.

Disclaimer: This session is not designed to replace medical or psychological care.  Your participation is voluntary; you should stop if you feel uncomfortable at any time.  If you have a history of significant mental illness, obtain permission from your doctor or therapist before using this technique.

From an early age, Albert Taylor’s sleep was frequently disrupted by episodes of death-like paralysis accompanied by extremely lucid dreams. His grandmother called them “witch rides,” but in later life he learned to call this facility out-of-body experiences or astral projections.

On these incredible flights, Taylor discovered he could go to distant places, communicate with the spirits of dead relatives and gain psychic insights. Eventually he came to a deeper understanding of his own role on Earth and the meaning of life and death.

Born and raised in Southern California, Albert Taylor performed development engineering on a top secret the F-117A Stealth Fighter. He evaluated satellite system designs in support of former President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) or Star Wars.

After a myriad of paranormal events, and as a result of a spiritual awakening, Taylor left behind nearly two decades of work as an aeronautical engineer/scientist, to author and publish his book, Soul Traveler. Taylor is currently a paranormal researcher, teacher, public speaker and artist.

An NDE Gave Krista the Tools for Living

While in labor, Krista Gorman suffered an amniotic fluid embolism resulting in cardiopulmonary arrest. Her pulse was lost  for 8 minutes, followed by three days in the ICU  for severe bleeding. Krista experienced an NDE when she flatlined, it was the catalyst for profound change that really would not fully take hold until 10 years afterwards. Friday, Feb. 26, 6:30 pm EST.

with Krista Gorman, Friday, February 26 at 3:30 pm PST | 6:30 pm EST

Krista Gorman is a Physician Assistant. Back in the summer of 2000 she had just recently completed her training and was pregnant with her daughter Maggie.

While in labor, Krista suffered an amniotic fluid embolism resulting in cardiopulmonary arrest. Her pulse was lost  for 8 minutes, followed by three days in the ICU  for severe bleeding. Krista experienced an NDE when she flatlined, it was the catalyst for profound change that really would not fully take hold  until  10 years afterwards. Krista explains,

“I continue to gain more and more insight into my experience and how it explains the Universe and our place in it.”

Krista Gorman, a Florida resident, is a Physician Assistant who has worked in emergency, pain management and now has gone to assist in the Covid crisis. Krista went to work in New York City when the pandemic so tumultuously emerged there. She has spent the last few months in field hospitals in Texas working 12 hour shifts, 6 days a week.

Krista wrote the book “I Died and Learned How to Live” available on Amazon.  In this book she shares her story and the principles by which she transformed her life and aligned herself with the love she was on the other side.

Krista and her daughter were featured on the “Story of God” with Morgan Freeman in 2017 . It is viewable on the National Geographic episode “Heaven and Hell.”

Krista has spoken at past IANDS conferences, as well as for the Edgar Cayce Association in Virginia Beach, Spirit University and also Blissful Beginnings in Florida. She is married to Ainsley Threadgold, who also happens to be a near-death experiencer and their meeting is another beautiful story in itself.

Have you experienced an “Awakening”? No, you’re not crazy!

Please join me as I share the differences and similarities of NDEs and Spontaneous Awakenings. Have you recently experienced an Awakening? Are you confused and perhaps even a bit fearful of what happened to you? Are you wondering if you had a psychotic break in reality? Well, I can tell you, absolutely: No, you are not crazy!

Have you recently experienced an Awakening?
Are you confused and perhaps even a bit fearful of what happened to you?
Are you wondering if you had a psychotic break in reality?
Well, I can tell you, absolutely:   No, you are not crazy!

Now you have to deal with the fallout from this incredible event. I know from my own experience that you have a great deal of confusion about what happened to you, and there are big shifts going on in every aspect of your life.

These shifts are affecting you and your family and friends. They are affecting your work, your home, and your relationships. You are probably asking yourself: How can I navigate in the physical world after experiencing an expanded state of consciousness?

The physical world now seems so trivial, fragile, transparent, unimportant…

What words can I use to explain to my loved ones about my new-found insights? I can’t imagine that they will possibly be able to understand me now… And most importantly: What am I supposed to do with the new-found wisdom that poured through me? And where can I get help to navigate through this new way of “being” in the world?

I know these are some of the questions I had in 1996 after having a spontaneous/kundalini awakening that left me unable to eat or sleep for three months. It took me twenty years to have enough language and courage to write down my story in “The Reluctant Mystic, Autobiography of an Awakening“.

When I had my spontaneous awakening over 25 years ago, it took me another 5 to 10 years to figure out what had happened to me and what to do with my new-found abilities. Please join me as I share the differences and similarities of NDEs and Spontaneous Awakenings.

IANDS Launch Pad Series – A Veteran’s NDE and Path to Revealing It

Chase Skylar DeMayo is a U.S. Air Force veteran who died April 1, 2008, and was sent back to spread laughter, light, love and joy to the world. His near-death experience (NDE) occurred during cardiac arrest while he was stationed at Langley Air Force Base. For 12 years, Chase kept his NDE private for fear of judgment and retribution. Now he reveals the depth of his experience and its aftereffects. Come hear this remarkable, spirit-filled man!

Are Veteran’s more likely to have NDE’s while less likely to come forward?
with Chase Skylar DeMayo

I took it in and realized I was in Heaven, watching what happiness was. We didn’t exchange spoken words back and forth like a traditional conversation. The joy itself seemed to be the conversation; the light and the love that was flowing through me was filled with information and memories.

Jesus turned to me and said with another smile on his face, “You have to go back now.”

I took another look around. I remember feeling content with his guidance—as if this was all part of the plan.

“I need you to go back and remember to share laughter, joy, love, and light,” he said.

When he said those words, it was if they were being tattooed into me, or digested into my heart. Those words hit me like a truck.

Before I could respond, he started to grin again. It was the type of grin you have right before a laugh starts to come out. There was such a sense of fun and humor during my time spent in the garden. To me, it felt like the relationship you have with a best friend or sibling or spouse, where even the slightest notion could send you into peals of laughter.

His grin was my last memory before gravity set in and the weight of the world started to set into my human body again. It was obvious I was no longer in Heaven, where everything was so free and weightless.

What would a 21 year old do after such a clear, defined, and transformative experience while in the Air Force? Nothing. I told no one about my experience. I joked about dying with friends, but I knew if I told anyone about my experiences in Heaven that they would think I was either crazy, lying, or both. I couldn’t tell people I had met Jesus. Who was I to share that? A church might look at me and say, “He hasn’t earned his right to enjoy such an experience.” My friends and family might think it was all for attention. So, for 12 years, it stayed a secret from almost everyone but my close friends and family. Until now.

 

Multi-NDEr, Clairvoyant Visionary, and Spiritual Teacher/Healer: Michael Tamura

Friday, February 19, 7 pm Eastern (4 pm Pacific)

Michael Tamura – NDEr / STEr
Clairvoyant Visionary, Spiritual Teacher/Healer & Multi-NDEr

Spiritually aware from childhood, Michael Tamura sees everyone the way they are — as immortal souls. To guide thousands to their healing, awakening, and true life purpose, he draws from years of intensive training, profound past-life recall, nightly out-of-body sojourns, four decades of teaching and giving clairvoyant counseling, and a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, including having physically died three times in full consciousness.  Michael will discuss some of his amazing near-death experiences and also how to better deal with what’s going on in the world today.

Michael Tamura, YOU ARE THE ANSWER:
Discovering and Fulfilling Your Soul’s Purpose

[Note from Susan, Durham IANDS Group Leader: I first met Michael in my dreams years ago, as I was journaling them at that time. Then I later met him in person and now realize those were astral classes that Michael was teaching and I was attending.]

Born and raised in Japan, yet educated in American schools, Michael has spent a lifetime bridging gaps: Not only between East and West, but between men and women, the young and old, heart and soul, life and the afterlife – and, above all, between humanity and Divinity. He is beloved around the world as a spiritual teacher, clairvoyant visionary, and pioneer of healing and psychic development.

He has been featured on CNN, NBC’s The Leeza Show, The New Ricki Lake Show, Bridging Heaven & Earth, Gaiam TV, The Aware Show, Hay House Radio, and many other media programs. He was also included in ABC News’ The Century: America’s Time with Peter Jennings. Currently in production is a documentary film featuring Michael and his three profound death experiences.

A champion for soul-centered education, healing, and parenting of children, Michael appeared as a guest expert in the film, The Indigo Evolution. As a pioneer in the field of spiritual healing and psychic development, his insightful articles have been published in magazines internationally. He also wrote the final chapter, “Nourishing the Soul of the Psychic Child” in James Twyman’s book, Messages From Thomas: Raising Psychic Children as well as the first chapter in Susan Suntree’s anthology, The Wisdom of the East. Other pioneers in education and healing of children as well as those forging the path for soul awareness and psychic development often seek out Michael’s insights and wisdom.

Today, the award-winning author of YOU ARE THE ANSWER, is working on his latest book, THREE TIMES DEAD and What It Taught Me: A Journey Into the Heart of Wisdom, as he continues to provide psychic tools and spiritual practices to illuminate the way home for awakening souls. His teachings are offered through his acclaimed seminars, teleclass courses, writing, media appearances, special events, and audio products. For Michael, every step in life offers a golden opportunity for healing, miracles, and the fulfillment of one’s divine purpose.

If you’re seeking to discover more about your soul’s purpose and to learn how to live the miracle, you’ve come to the right place. We welcome you to find out more about our work and our spiritual community without walls.

May the Light of Truth illuminate your every choice and Divine Love guide you in your every act.

With gratitude and love, Michael”
