Marcus Aurelius has nothing on Kelvin Chin!

Increase your JOY in 2022 with easily digestible essays that harken back to Marcus Aurelius’ writings…but updated for modern times by modern spiritualist Kelvin Chin.

Marcus Aurelius has nothing on Kelvin Chin! Join us for this uplifting Book Club session. 
Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 7 pm EST/ 4 pm PST

“Marcus Aurelius Updated: 21st Century Meditations on Living Life” has the same goal as the 2nd century book, “Meditations,” by the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius: to help us think about key areas of our lives in a practical way to increase our enjoyment of life. It is a collection of essays on emotions, life principles, meditation, and the spiritual. Plus, insights into love, forgiveness, the pursuit of happiness, free will, destiny, and the meaning of life.

Biography:

Kelvin Chin has been helping people navigate their lives more easily and smoothly for over 40 years. Throughout his life, he has focused on empowering others, often teaching them techniques and new ways of thinking, helping them to be more self-sufficient and effective. At age 19, Kelvin learned to meditate as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Three years later, Maharishi taught Kelvin how to teach it in an effortless, easy-to-learn way. In his mid-20’s, Kelvin began to remember ancient personal memories from many centuries ago. During his subsequent corporate and legal careers, these memories unfolded more and more. In addition, over the past 40 years, he has had many experiences with the “other side of the veil,” so that now his connection between this physical side and the more non-physical side is normal and natural, not unusual or extraordinary. Kelvin taught meditation throughout the 1970’s, including at West Point Military Academy and in the U.S. Army in Korea and on the DMZ. His students included people of all ages and walks of life, including members of the clergy of every religion, and even Buddhist monks. Kelvin was a test subject in the first medical studies in the U.S. done on meditation in 1971. After graduating from college, graduate and law school, he had a several decade career in business and law. During that time, he continued to help others by teaching them to meditate, and when needed, how to overcome their fear of death. Helping others with death and dying issues, along with his unique approach to the grieving process is something he has offered since his mother’s untimely death in 1982. Now, his teaching of “Turning Within” Meditation, his Overcoming the Fear of Death work, and his Grief Recovery program is his full-time focus. Kelvin was born and raised in Boston, has lived throughout the U.S., as well as 6 countries in Europe and Asia. He currently resides in Los Angeles near his two beautiful, talented children. He teaches worldwide (over 50 countries) both via videoconference and in-person.

Book Club Read-Along: The In Between Practice: The Art of Letting Go

Featured for January’s read-alongs and guest author is NDEr Jim Bruton’s new book The In Between Practice: The Art of Letting Go (a follow-up to his first book, The In Between, A Trip of a Lifetime). Jim uses the personal integration of his near-death experience as a guide on how to live according to one’s true self; that which is of their own essence and meaningful and important personally. Jim was told during an out-of-body experience how to write his new book in such a way that the words would contain the information, but the “rivers of white” (or silence) between the words would hold understanding.

A Vision Foretold of Her Near-Death Experience

Andrea Courey will tell of her life-changing NDE and its after-effects, including after-death communication, spontaneous mediumship, automatic writing and helping others through Sound Healing. Wednesday, December 8, 7 pm CST.

A Vision Foretold of Her Near-Death Experience with Andrea Courey

Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 7 pm CST (5 PST, 6 MST, 8 EST)
Sponsored by Dallas/Ft Worth Friends of IANDS,
Co-leaders: Jan Holden, Ed.D. and Pete Quortrup

Andrea Courey will tell the story of a life-altering event which was foretold in a vision she had only fifteen hours before. She and her husband were both struck by a car as they walked along a snow-covered sidewalk and her NDE led to psychic abilities that have led her on a previously unimagined thirty-year journey.

Andrea’s life has seen extensive after-death communication with her grandmother, her deceased daughter Chloe and others who have asked her to deliver messages to bereaved loved ones, and these conversations across the veil have led to books and other callings, the most recent of which is the use of Sound Healing Meditation, through which Andrea helps others, such as parents who have lost a child.

Speaker’s Bio:
Thirty years ago, Andrea Courey was a wife and mother of three young children in Montreal, Quebec when she was struck by a car and had an NDE which changed the course of her life. No longer afraid of death, she suddenly realized that her marriage was no longer viable and began to hear from her grandmother across the veil. Now a single mother with no income, at her grandmother’s urging she became an entrepreneur, creating and running a company for eighteen years (Grandma Emily’s Granola).

After selling the company in 2015, she was called to care for her daughter Chloe, who died with cancer the next year. Andrea’s 2016 book, “Conversations with Chloe – A Mother and Daughter Dialogue Across the Veil” (Click here for Amazon Link), was a collaboration with Chloe written over the months following her death. The three decades since Andrea’s NDE have been a journey of self-discovery, marked by psychic aftereffects including spontaneous mediumship, automatic writing, and after-death communication. She has only been sharing her story publicly since Chloe’s death and most recently has begun leading Sound Healing Meditations to help others, such as parents who, like her, have lost a child.

Her second book, “Magical Thinking …not!”, is the result of her work with bereaved parents and is available for free from Andrea’s website: https://andreacourey.com.

Shared Crossings – An Evening with William Peters, Founder of The Shared Crossing Project

Shared Crossings are real. What can explain these shared death experiences and what do they tell us about what lies beyond? Can they reduce the sting of death or even prepare us for our own final moments? Can we have both a better life and a better death? (Rescheduled from January 12 to January 19)

Shared Crossings – An Evening with William Peters, Founder of The Shared Crossing Project
January 19th, 2022 at 7:00 pm Central

(This meeting has been rescheduled from January 12th to January 19th)

In 2000, end-of-life therapist William Peters was volunteering at the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco when he had an extraordinary experience as he was reading aloud to a patient: he suddenly felt himself floating in midair, completely out of his body. The patient, who was also aloft, looked at him and smiled. The next moment, Peters felt himself return to his body… but the patient never regained consciousness and died.

Perplexed and stunned by what had happened, Peters began searching for other people who’d shared similar experiences. He would spend the next twenty years gathering and meticulously categorizing their stories to identify key patterns and features of what is now known as the “shared crossing” experience. The similarities, which cut across continents and cultures and include awe-inspiring visual and sensory effects, and powerful emotional after-effects, were impossible to ignore.

Long whispered about in the hospice and medical communities, these extraordinary moments of final passage will be the subject of a discussion with William, author of the upcoming book “At Heaven’s Door: What Shared Journeys to the Afterlife Teach About Dying Well and Living Better.”
What can explain these shared death experiences? How can we increase our likelihood of having one? What do these experiences tell us about what lies beyond? And, most importantly, how can they help take away the sting of death and better prepare us for our own final moments? How can we have both a better life and a better death?

We do not sell books, but you can find Peters’ book here: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/At-Heavens-Door/William-J-Peters/9781982150426

You can also purchase it from Amazon here:

At Heaven’s Door: What Shared Journeys to the Afterlife Teach About Dying Well and Living Better: Peters, William J.: 9781982150426: Amazon.com: Books

William Peters is the founder of the Shared Crossing Project whose mission is to positively transform relationships to death and dying through education and raising awareness about shared crossings and their healing benefits. As the director of the Shared Crossing Research Initiative (SCRI), William and his team collect and study extraordinary end-of-life experiences (shared crossings). William is a global leader in shared death studies and end of life phenomenon. He has developed methods to facilitate the shared death experience and to assist experiencers in meaningfully integrating their experiences. He is a psychotherapist at the Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara where he specializes in end-of-life counseling as a means toward psycho-spiritual evolution. William’s work is informed by his two NDEs and a variety of Shared Death Experiences while serving as a hospice worker with Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco. He has presented at the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine Annual Conference. William’s research has recently been approved in the American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Omega magazine.
William’s book entitled “At Heaven’s Door: What Shared Journeys to the Afterlife Teach About Dying Well and Living Better”, will be published by Simon & Schuster for worldwide release in January, 2022.

Book Club Presents Jacob Cooper, “Life After Breath”

A playground accident led to a childhood NDE that guided the life — through triumphs and troubles — of Jacob Cooper. Often faced with confusion, Jacob meandered through life until he discovered his purpose. A true lightworker, Jacob now helps others in the journey we call life and death.

Book Club Presents Jacob Cooper, “Life After Breath”

January 3rd, 2021 at 7:00 pm eastern

Death, even for a moment, changes everything. In Life After Breath, Jacob’s near-death experience as a child ripped an opening between him and the spirit world. He lived, but was forever changed. As he grew, darkness
and light led him on a roller coaster ride of turmoil, loss, discovery, and renewal. He now shares this mystical journey with those brave enough to explore the “other side,” understand the beings there, and hear the
wisdom gleaned. He faces the question of the hereafter, looks at life lessons, and examines what a connected awareness can mean to the human experience. Jacob is a licensed social worker, and his expertise coupled with his warm and understanding personality make him a highly anticipated guest!

Book Club Presents David Ditchfield from NDE to Musical and Artistic Savant

Killed by a train, David had remarkable experiences in the afterlife. Those were unparalleled until he discovered the gifts with which he returned — exceptional talent as a composer and artist, with zero training!

Book Club Presents David Ditchfield from NDE to Musical and Artistic Savant
November 21, 2021 at 4:00 pm eastern

The after-effects of David Ditchfield’s NDE are undeniable — the ability to produce high-quality paintings with skill that goes far beyond any previous ability. As if that isn’t enough, add the newly-acquired skill to compose classical symphonies that sell-out orchestral concerts — even though, to this day, he is unable to read or write a single note of musical notation. Even a cynic would have a hard time explaining this! But this is exactly what happened to David. Read the details of this mysterious account, then hear straight from the horse’s mouth (er, uh, the conductor and artist’s mouth!), just what his NDE was like, and how life is with such incredible talent.

Misfit in Hell to Heaven Expat IANDS Book Club postponed

glimpse of heaven and had a chat with her deceased fiancé before being sent back to Earth, as she was told she still had work to do. Find out directly from M.K. what that work is, why her relatives figure so prominently in her life and afterlife, and what a negative NDE can teach us.

IANDS Book Club: Hear how God assigned David Milarch the task of saving Mother Earth! Presented by IANDS Book Club

David Milarch’s NDE provides proof that God is battling climate change right along with us! Without the work God assigned David to do, the Earth would perish. Find out about the instruction manual David acquired from an angel to clone the great, giant trees of the earth!

David Milarch from Archangel Ancient Trees Archive

The Man Who Planted Trees is the inspiring story of David Milarch’s quest to clone the biggest trees on the planet in order to save our forests and ecosystem—as well as a hopeful lesson about how each of us has the ability to make a difference.

David Milarch is a northern Michigan nurseryman who had a penchant for bars and hard living — until he died. After a near-death experience and subsequent angelic visitation – in which he was told the earth and human life were in jeopardy – David discovered his life’s mission. The angels told him he was to clone the champion trees of the world—the largest and hardiest that had survived millennia and were most resilient to climate change—a Noah’s ark of tree genetics. Without any scientific background, Milarch followed the angels’ manifesto and began cloning the champions. Experts told him it couldn’t be done, but twenty years later his team has successfully cloned giant redwoods, sequoias, and others, and have grown seedlings from the oldest tree in the world, a bristlecone pine named Methuselah. David rarely speaks publicly of his spiritual experiences (which happened over twenty years ago, but are ongoing), preferring to concentrate on the mission itself. However, as David exclaimed when I (Nancy) called on a long shot to see if he would grace our book club, “spirit has set us up!” Hear about this encounter before David launches into his incredible story!

“When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today.”—Chinese

About David:

More than twenty years ago, David Milarch, whose family owned a Michigan nursery for years, had an NDE in which he was shown an image of a devastated Earth: its trees dying. He was told his mission was to clone the champion trees of the world, reintroducing their hardier genetics into our ailing forests to combat climate change. But how could a burly, biker who arm-wrestled in bars, with no scientific education, accomplish this? The answer came when an angel visited David after his NDE.

Angel Visits, NDE’s and Messages of Light for World Peace with Nadine Telishewsky, Presented by IANDS’ Launch Pad Series

Nadine made an offer to God at age 13, leading to angelic visitations, viewing past lives, and a shared NDE. At age 18 she snuck into heaven and was shown her first profound message from the light, being 5 meanings of life, for the purpose of showing humanity how to love each other, and live together as one in world peace. She’ll also speak of her premonitions before her NDE at age 24, and her enlightening experience there before choosing to return to help others. October 30th at 1:00 pm EDT.

Angel Visits, NDE’s and Messages of  Light for World Peace with Nadine Telishewsky, Presented by IANDS’ Launch Pad Series

October 30, 2021 1:00 pm EDT/10:00 am PDT

At age 13 Nadine told God she wanted to either do whatever it takes to become an angel one day, or if it wasn’t possible to at least help his angels in some way. After a few months the beautiful angel visits began with them entering her dreams at night, with everything becoming vivid and cognizant. She’d follow them and astral travel in this realm, to past lives, to a future life to view the state of Mother Earth, and had a shared NDE at age 17. Now that she knew the way, she snuck into heaven at age 18, was able to pass a test an angel gave her, and had a profound experience where she received 5 of the many meanings of life. She was told the purpose was to teach everyone how to love each other, and how to live together as one to attain world peace.

Nadine will also explain 5 premonitions she experienced before her earth-death at age 24, as well as her NDE after being drugged with a date-rape drug which resulted in an overdose and massive heart attack. It was meant to be her ideal exit point to transition, as she’d completed her contract in this lifetime. But she received permission to return to this life from a strong yearning to help others.

Nadine then experienced an extremely difficult time with medical issues, aftereffects, and having no one to relate to about her experiences after being dismissed or criticized. She shut her spiritual life off and stopped speaking of them. After more than 16 years of silence, at the start of 2021, she founds IANDS as the miracle cure for helping her open herself back up to the ethereal, and had a profound spiritual awakening. This resulted in astral travels, communication with angels, Mother Nature and God, and learning many inspirational lessons.

For the first time she’s been called to reveal all her experiences of the light, to offer messages of love, hope, and connection to others. She’s so grateful for the opportunity to present through her new soul home with IANDS.
