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.

The Near Dean Experience – Guest Experiencer Peter Panagore

Peter Panagore had a catapulting and captivating NDE that changed his life’s journey in unimaginable ways. It began by Peter choosing to live that he might help others find the path he discovered by freezing to death! In the magical music moment, Dean will share Peter’s favorite song… Thursday, October 15, 6 pm PDT (9 pm EDT)

Guest Experiencer – Peter Panagore

Peter Panagore is a husband, father, grandfather, a two-time near-death experiencer, storyteller, ordained pastor, writer, best-selling author, entrepreneur, public speaker, tv personality, producer, and more. He earned his Master of Divinity at Yale University with a focus on the classics of western mysticism.

Peter served eighteen years as a Congregational community minister in the United Church of Christ, primarily along the coast of Maine.

For fifteen years (2003-2018), Peter had the honor and privilege to broadcast a daily two-minute spot on two NBC TV stations with Daily Devotions just before the morning weather. Through this program, he reached thirty million viewers annually and countless listeners on FM and AM radio across Maine, New Hampshire, and around the nation.

*******************

The Near Dean Experience (moving to every second Thursday of the month – be sure to check the ISGO catalog listing):
 
* Mystical Music Moment – We listen to, share, and discuss brief clips of music that enable us to connect spiritually (approximately five minutes)
 
* Guest experiencer
 
* Q&A
 
Group Host: Dean Christensen
 

Dean has been a researcher of the NDE phenomenon for over thirty-eight years. A possible NDE (at a very young age) and multiple STE’s have compelled Dean to actively share these spiritual phenomena with others. Dean has a deep fascination with the human experience in tandem with the spiritual, as interpreted from the universal message of the NDE. As a musician and lover of music, Dean believes we can “tap into” various spiritual energies via the musical experience.

Please join us for what should be an uplifting and enriching experience!

Salt Lake City IANDS -Home and Back Again

In the summer of 2004, Imelda (Medy) Fowler died “several times” during emergency surgery. In her NDEs, she returned “home” to a celestial realm of astonishing beauty, met Jesus and deceased family members. During some visits, she had a life review, visited other dimensions, briefly saw the “Plain of Hell”, and an escape from that awful place, plus more of “spiritual reality”… presented by Salt Lake City IANDS on Sep 25, 7 pm MDT (6 pm PDT, 9 pm EDT)

Imelda (Medy) Fowler – Home and Back Again: My Journey Through The Valley of The Shadow of DeathFriday, September 25, 6 pm PDT (9 pm EDT).

IANDS of Utah is pleased to announce our September 25th speaker will be Imelda Fowler. Imelda (Medy), originally from the Philippines, came to the US in 1980, where she married her husband, Tommy. They currently live in Hillsboro, Oregon. Medy, just 88 lbs. holds several world, national and state Power Lifting records in the 97 lbs. class.

In the summer of 2004, late one night, Imelda found herself in intense pain. She went to the hospital where a late-night intern misdiagnosed her burst appendix. It took 14 hours (the next morning) for an attending physician to make a proper diagnosis. In the meantime, Imelda had been in excruciating pain.  Once properly diagnosed, she was rushed into surgery, during which, and several times thereafter, she died and returned “home” to a celestial realm of astonishing gardens full of flowers with vibrant, vivid colors, some beyond any worldly colors.

While in this world of spirits, she met the Savior Jesus as well as many deceased family members. During one visit, Medy stood before the Grand Council of Heaven with Jesus by her side. She was able to see other realms or dimensions in the spirit world including a glimpse of Hell and those who go there. While she stood above the “Plain of Hell,” she learned there is escape from that most awful place. Medy even had a brief, frightening, one-on-one encounter with Satan.

The story of Medy’s NDE is told in Home and Back Again: My Journey Through The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death.

Greater Reality Living Series

Much scientific and clinical evidence now clearly shows that life continues after bodily death in the greater reality –  the totality of life that isn’t perceived by human senses.  How might this great news, nine related benefits, and the L.I.V.E.S. formula affect the way you live and treat others and our planet?  This event fee includes a digital copy of The Greater Reality book by myself and Gary E. Schwartz PhD.

Greater Reality Living Series with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
August 29 at 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT)

This is the first of 10 independent interactive & presentation-oriented sessions…

Greater Reality Living – series launch (introduces series and includes a bonus gift).

SHORT DESCRIPTION

Much scientific and clinical evidence now clearly shows that life continues after bodily death in the greater reality –  the totality of life that isn’t perceived by human senses.  How might this great news, nine related benefits, and the L.I.V.E.S. formula affect the way you live and treat others and our planet?  This series launch session fee includes a digital copy of The Greater Reality book by myself and Gary E. Schwartz PhD.

LONGER DESCRIPTION – Overview of Series Topics 

The greater reality is all that actually exists. The vast majority of it cannot be perceived by your five senses, but is nonetheless very real.  It is a scientific fact that your senses, as amazing as they are, detect less than one percent of reality.

Because so much of reality escapes the senses, you likely have viewed life as though through a tiny pinhole and then wondered why things don’t make sense.  Many benefits accompany deeply knowing the contemporary evidence about the nature of reality.  University-based, controlled, replicated, and multicentered research reported in peer-reviewed scientific journals now makes it very clear . . .

Life continues after bodily death.

(Please take a moment and let that great news settle in.)  This life-transformative news will be officially announced in early 2021 after completion of multicenter studies at six universities and institutes, publication of The SoulPhone Experiments book, and publication of a seminal paper in a prestigious scientific journal.  To learn more, visit SoulPhone Update.

In addition to the great news about life after bodily death, much scientific, clinical, and experiential evidence provides a high degree of certainty that you and everyone else . . .

  1. do not really ‘lose’ loved ones after their earthly bodies perish since you can reunite with them when you change worlds.
  1. can enjoy a continued, but different, relationship with them now.
  1. are an integral part of Source Energy / the Light now.
  2. receive assistance and guidance from sources variously described as angels, guides, master teachers, and higher energies.
  3. can have many different and, perhaps, simultaneous life experiences.
  1. can create the greatest life you have envisioned.
  1. are interconnected with other people, animals, nature, and all of life.
  1. have special purposes for experiencing being on this planet at this time.
  2. have a pre-birth plan … “Did  my soul REALLY plan all this?”.
  3. can develop an awareness of past-life traumas that when understood facilitate release of issues carried over into this life.

None of the above is apparent when you rely on just your five senses.  All of the above can assist having a more joyful, peaceful, and meaningful human experience.  That’s why it’s so important to learn more about the greater reality AND deeply internalize this great news.

The term greater reality living describes how you might choose to live as you expand your awareness about the totality of life.  How will you live and treat others – and yourself – when you really know that the benefits listed above are quite probably true?

We pose this question because we do not pretend to know what this will mean for you.  You and all people are unique and have special reasons for being just as you are in this exact moment.  The book Greater Reality Living can help you formulate your best answers.  My book The Big Picture of Life – co-authored by 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 The Big Picture of Life book with young people in your life.

Living in more evolved ways is easier when you have a support system of kindred spirits who are also on the path of love, enlightenment, self-growth, and service to others.  We encourage you to expand your circle of loving, open-minded, and service-oriented people.  This is one benefit of online and local Greater Reality Living Groups.

Many people have expressed their desire to regularly meet with a group of such people.  They want a nonjudgmental, safe, inclusive, and respectful place where they can share their personal spiritually transformative experiences and discuss important topics.  Five keys to greater reality living – the L.I.V.E.S. formula – will also be discussed in this webinar.  

Life continues after bodily death.  That has now been definitively demonstrated scientifically!

I hope you join us to learn more about the evidence behind this statement and the benefits listed above.  Knowing all that, and applying the L.I.V.E.S. strategies for greater reality living over time, can improve every aspect of your earthly experience.
