About the facilitators

M.K. “Kathy” McDaniel – Facilitator

Kathy is the author of Misfit in Hell to Heaven Expat: Lessons from a Dark Near-Death Experience and How to Avoid Hell in the Afterlife.”

Placed on a ventilator for lung failure in 1999, M.K. McDaniel fought for her life in a drug-induced coma for three weeks. Misfit In Hell To Heaven Expat is a memoir of M.K.’s experiences before, during, and after a Dark Near-Death Experience. Her family waited and prayed, totally unaware of the horrors M.K. was bravely facing and miserably enduring in a seemingly eternal hell, culminating in her eventual glimpse of heaven and chat with her deceased fiancé. But M.K. still had work to do on Earth. During her lengthy recovery, as M.K. reflected on the purpose of her experiences in the Afterlife, she recalled the tribulations of her family ancestors and their courage to survive. If they could overcome their overwhelming obstacles, then so could she. As memories of former earthly hellish traumas surfaced and seemed to parallel her actual hell experiences, M.K. sought out others with the same story. She eventually found solace, hope, and understanding at the International Association of Near-Death Studies meetings in Seattle. IANDS offered insights, camaraderie, and joy she had nearly forgotten to be possible in this life. Uplifting, humorous, chilling, and engrossing, Misfit In Hell To Heaven Expat takes the reader by the hand to safely explore our human and otherworldly selves. Its gentle message will help the reader find their way along the bumpy, earthly road to eternity.

Daniel Endy – C0-facilitator

Daniel has been a spiritual seeker and researcher for over 50 years. In his early teens, he decided that the religious dogma he had been taught made no sense and he became what he calls a spiritual independent. Daniel felt that if there truly was a Creator and a spiritual reality beyond the physical world, it had to make rational sense. His studies have covered a very wide range of teachings, experiences, and publications.

Daniel has a particular interest in NDEs, the works of Emmanuel Swedenborg, and distressing spiritual experiences. He is a member of the IANDS board of directors and is very active with ISGO, the IANDS Sharing Groups Online.

Jewish Experience Theme Group

Are you Jewish and wonder how or if your NDE or other Spiritually Transformative Experience aligns with your faith? Are you struggling to integrate your experience? Come explore these questions with others having similar concerns. While this Sharing Session contains Jewish content, it is open to all who have a desire to join us.

The “Jewish Experience Sharing Group” is a sharing group for those in, or from, a Jewish community who have had, or are interested in the near-death or similar experiences.

For some experiencers, it’s helpful to consider issues of having a Jewish background when discussing their NDE/STE. This group allows a safe place for those types discussions. Each evening will begin with a presentation, followed by time for participants to respond. Additionally, there will be time to share your experiences, challenges, joys, and dreams.

We understand attendees of this group may come from many different Jewish traditions, other faith traditions, or none at all. We commit to respecting all who attend this group, knowing each person holds their own personal perspectives and beliefs.

This is a safe place of non-judgment. There is also no proselytizing. The group will explore the meaning and purpose of NDEs and how to integrate them by understanding the Jewish values implicit in the experience. Each person’s NDE or spiritual transformative experience is unique, and Rabbi Steve will help you find the hidden core of your soul’s purpose contained in the experience of the NDE.

Kabbalah, contemporary psychology, and brain science will provide a deeper understanding of the role of your physical being in this world and how leaving this world is not death, but transformation into another stage of living. Together we will support each other as we move to greater insights and application of the wisdom which will be revealed to all of us in these sessions

Open Spirituality Theme Group

This monthly ISGO theme group offers respectful open discussion of what Spirituality means to YOU.  

Open Spirituality is a non-religion. It’s for people who consider themselves spiritual but who may have issues with traditional forms of religion. Open Spirituality has zero dogma or doctrine. It’s about a personal relationship with the Divine with zero requirements other than your intent to connect.

“Open Spirituality” is perhaps best defined by these quotes:
“Religion is an external practice. Spirituality is a state of mind.”
“Religion is about believing. Spirituality is about being.”
“Kindness is my religion.” – Dalai Lama

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing,
There is a field. I’ll meet you there.” – Rum

Open Spirituality Sharing Group
4th Sundays at 1 pm ET/ 10 am PT

The topic for this meeting will be “The Future of Religion and Spirituality.” In addition to our usual open discussion where anything goes, we will also entertain the subject of how religions, religious beliefs, and the concept of spirituality evolve over time. What do you think spirituality will look like 100 years from now? What about 500 years from now?

This monthly ISGO theme group offers respectful open discussion of what Spirituality means to YOU.

——————

Let go of any preconceived ideas of spirituality! We are going to explore the subject of spirituality from every conceivable perspective. This group will combine open discussion with presentations and guest interviews all centered around the broadest definitions of spirituality. 

This group:

  • Respects and values all perspectives;
  • Is inclusive of all perspectives,
  • Welcomes all that seek to explore and investigate the mysteries of life;
  • Seeks to find the common ground that ties everything together;
  • Feels that science and spirituality are 2 sides of the same whole;
  • Sends love and understanding to all beings.

If you like subjects that are “out there” with a spiritual, philosophical, and/or theological perspective, this group is for you! 

Religions generally come from an exclusive perspective that can be very limiting. 

This group is for you if ANY of the following statements resonate:

  • You feel constrained by societal boundaries/definitions of spirituality and/or religion;
  • You consider yourself ‘spiritual’ but not religious (SBNR);
  • you love your religious community, but feel there is more to spirituality;
  • You believe in the Oneness of all that is;
  • You believe in the equality of all beings;
  • You love the mystery of life/existence and you would like to explore it in more depth;
  • You love God/Source/Creator, but feel that those terms are too limiting;

The Open Spirituality group will explore and discuss the most inspiring spiritual aspects of all religious traditions, philosophies, theologies, cosmologies, and *experiences* like STEs, NDEs, OBEs, alien encounters, psychic phenomena, mediumship, the healing arts, and such.

Open Spirituality welcomes people from all faith traditions. It does not promote any particular belief or theology other than the belief that we are all spiritual beings.

Proponents are self-proclaimed and all are welcome and supported as long as they are open, inclusive, and supportive of the beliefs of others. Open Spirituality welcomes atheists and agnostics as well since the belief in the existence of a deity is a matter of personal opinion.

“Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of the opinions of others drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.” – Steve Jobs

Lastly, the following excerpt from Wikipedia seems appropriate:
Spiritual but not religious” (SBNR), also known as “spiritual but not affiliated” (SBNA), is a popular phrase used to self-identify a life stance of spirituality that does not regard organized religion as the sole or most valuable means of furthering spiritual growth.
