Returning Home to God – Thavy Mam
Friday, October 9, 2020, 7:00 pm PDT/AZ

Thavy Mam – Thavy’s spiritual set is unique.  With a tumultuous life, she was saved from drowning by an angel at 4.   In 2001, she had 5 spontaneous OBEs in 6 months, “returning to Home to God.”  In 2015, still experiencing emotional devastation; she made a decision that caused her spiritual transformation to accelerate.

Spiritual Beings began waking her to energetic healing, channeling, Egyptian and yoga postures, tai chi, healing modalities from all over the world and timelines, along with the ability to do deliberate OBEs.  She now uses a combination of all these to assist others in their own healing transformation.  Her spiritual skill set is a multitude of tools.

“Everything I learned, all the healing modalities, I learned from my Spirit Guides and angels. I never took any classes or had a human teacher.”, Thavy.

Durham IANDS Guest Speaker Webinar

In August 2013, Candice M. Sanderson’s life changed forever in a ten-minute period of time. When her training as a psychologist failed to explain these events, she reluctantly followed the breadcrumbs down a path which resulted in an extraordinary adventure into the unknown. The Reluctant Messenger chronicles her expedition across a vast expanse of universal consciousness that resulted in new truths about life that she thought she had known so well. Friday, Nov. 20, 7 – 9 pm EST.

Candice Sanderson – The Reluctant Messenger
Friday, November 20, 7 pm Eastern (4 pm Pacific)

In August 2013, Candice M. Sanderson’s life changed forever in a ten-minute period of time. When her training as a psychologist failed to explain these events, she reluctantly followed the breadcrumbs down a path which resulted in an extraordinary adventure into the unknown. The Reluctant Messenger chronicles her expedition across a vast expanse of universal consciousness that resulted in new truths about life that she thought she had known so well. Candice soon discovered she questioned everything she knew:

“Before that August morning, I epitomized normalcy—others might have called my life boring. I went to work each day, came home, read a book, and talked on the phone or sat in front of some sort of electronic screen. My life revolved around my work and my children. In 1987, at the age of thirty-five, my husband died, and I was left to raise my son and daughter by myself. Both are now married with children of their own. As a psychologist, I differentiated normal from abnormal, and my life represented nothing but the commonplace.

 

“On August 28, 2013, a brief experience changed everything. The foundation of my belief system cracked. I had to suspend my assumptions about the world to make room for different truths. As a result, I careened off life’s comfortable, and perhaps mundane, path. I now view the universe quite differently. Looking back, my life before that ten-minute experience seems as if it belonged to someone else. The previous six decades of comfortable living became unrecognizable.”

“This book is instantly approachable and ultimately satisfying as an exposé of what it means to be human on this planet at this time, in this age.”
Laurin Bellg, M.D, author of Near Death in the ICU

Greater Reality Living Series

The 2nd of 10 independent, interactive sessions in The Greater Reality Living series [this series is being renamed to “Creating the Life You Envision”] with Dr. Mark Pitstick. Today’s session is dealing with a contemplative technique for having a Life Review. This technique can deepen your awareness for connecting to the greater reality for living now.

Creating the Life You Envision*** with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
Saturday, September 26 at 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT)

The Life Review Technique

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

SHORT DESCRIPTION

If you were to pass on today, what would your life review be like?  Would it be a work of art, or not so much?  Find out in this session so you can improve and make amends.  This technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.  Note: the webinar fee includes unlimited access to the video recording of this session (access to the video is available even if the live event is missed).

LONGER DESCRIPTION

This technique was originally developed by Ken Ring, PhD, early director of IANDS and professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut.  Author of Lessons from the Light and other books, he has worked with many people who had near-death experiences (NDE).  In his research, Dr. Ring found that the life-review was one of the most impactful aspects of NDEs.

Further, he found that you do not have to nearly die to benefit from a life-review.  Visualizing it during a deeply relaxed state can infer powerful positive changes.   Dr. Ring, now retired, gave me his permission to continue this aspect of his work.

The Life Review Technique is a life-transformative approach that uses deep relaxation and visual imagery to simulate dying and the subsequent life-review.  Processing that experience can produce very real changes that shape your life for the better now.  Using this technique can deepen your awareness of greater reality living and how you choose to live during your earthly visit.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

A life-review can be a potent reminder about what is most important in life.  It can help you focus on your priorities and the purposes you had for choosing this earth-experience at this time.  The life review is not punitive; it is a great opportunity to learn valuable lessons that stay with you through eternity.  This feedback helps you do better the next time you are in a similar situation.

Using this technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living and applying information from Greater Reality Living (co-authored by Mark and Gary E. Schwartz PhD).  You also can share this technique with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

The Big Picture of Life – co-authored by Mark, Dr. Schwartz, and Katta Mapes MA, MEd – is a version of Greater Reality Living written for ages 10 -16 or so.  After this webinar, you will be better prepared to discuss this topic and this book with young people in your life.

If you are truly sorry for inappropriate actions in the past, those can be erased and reformatted in the way you could have acted (not should have, for there is no outside judgment here).  The life-review technique can help you more deeply realize your interconnectedness with all life and why the Golden Rule makes obvious sense.

You also can enjoy a “mini-LRT” each night when you go to bed.  Simply review your day with self-praise for your positive thoughts/words/deeds.  Then consider the ways that you could have done better and visualize yourself doing so the next time around.   Feel for ways that you can make amends or improve and resolve to do so.

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.
