Christian Clergy Sharing Group (Private)

A group for Christian clergy and Christian chaplains, certified by their professional association, who are interested in near-death and other mystical experiences. This will be an educational session with a 5x near-death experiencer who’s last NDE left her wanting to be part of a church again. She will share how NDEs have changed her and what she is looking for in a church today. Followed by a brainstorming session on what words might be helpful when inviting NDEers to share their experiences with you. This may move you to consider new models and language of traditional Christian expression. This meeting will not be recorded.

Open Spirituality Topic Group

This monthly ISGO theme group is a safe space for respectful open discussion of whatever Spirituality means to you. 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 with like-minded people for stimulating conversation. Open Spirituality is a “non-religion.” It’s a place to share spiritual experiences and beliefs without a religious context. Religious contexts like churches, synagogues, mosques, and such are often the only place where people feel comfortable discussing spiritual concepts, but those places often feel artificially constrained once one has had an NDE or an STE. This group is for people who consider themselves spiritual but who may not be comfortable with traditional religions and religious beliefs and practices.

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

The conversation starter for this meeting will be “The FUTURE of Religion?,” and, as always, will also include our usual open discussion of everything spiritual where nothing is off limits.

What does spirituality mean to you? How has your understanding of spirituality evolved? How has spirituality challenged you in this life? This monthly group is a safe space for respectful open discussion of whatever Spirituality means to you.

Open Spirituality has NO dogma or doctrine. It’s about a personal relationship with the Divine with zero requirements other than your intent to connect with like-minded people for stimulating conversation.

Open Spirituality is a “non-religion.” It’s a place to share spiritual experiences and beliefs without a religious context. Religious contexts like churches, synagogues, mosques, and such are often the only place where people feel comfortable discussing spiritual concepts but those places often feel artificially constrained once one has had an NDE or an STE. This group is for people who consider themselves spiritual but who may not be comfortable with traditional religions and religious beliefs and practices.

“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.” – Rumi

——————

Let go of any preconceived ideas of spirituality! We explore the subject of spirituality from every conceivable perspective. This group combines open discussion with presentations and occasional 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. Open spirituality is inclusive and it respects and values the vast diversity of perspectives we each represent.

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.


For these groups, IANDS uses the Zoom video conferencing system. After registering for the event, it’s as simple as clicking the link provided in your email (prior to the event).


This is an ISGO “theme group” event offered FREE to IANDS members and for the modest amount of $5 / session for non-IANDS member accounts. (This helps us defray our expenses of maintaining IANDS Sharing Groups.) That’s another good reason to join IANDS!  However, we never want finances to be an issue. If you wish to attend but have a limited budget, please contact Daniel at daniel.endy@gmail.com and he will take care of you.


About the host, Daniel Endy:

Daniel has been on the spiritual path ever since he was a youngster. He was brought up in the Catholic religious tradition and attended Catholic schools. As with many people, Daniel was comfortable with spirituality but he had trouble with the religious dogma and he sought deeper truths. As a teen, Daniel left Catholicism and became what he calls a “spiritual independent.” He searched and researched extensively finding “tidbits” of wisdom here and there at first. Over time he found his way to more and more spiritual teachings that resonated as truth for him. He believes that each person’s journey and their “truth” is unique and that it evolves as each person does.

Daniel often thought of how he wanted an open community of people who were spiritual but non-dogmatic. He envisioned a group that would be welcoming and inclusive for all without limits. Open Spirituality is that dream manifested. All are welcome. All perspectives are respected. We don’t need to invalidate beliefs that we disagree with. We can all co-exist in peace.

Mike’s Walk-In Experience

Mike was in a terrible vehicle accident seven years ago, and it altered every aspect of his life.
He experienced a unique NDE, one that few others ever had to endure. While he was still alive at the time of the collision, he felt he was reincarnated. Mike had a full walk-in experience, and his life is forever changed.

MIKE’S WALK-IN EXPERIENCE

 

Saturday, October 29th, 2022 1PM est

A message from Mike:

I was in a terrible vehicle accident seven years ago, and it has altered every aspect of my life.I had a unique NDE, one that few others ever had to endure. While I was still alive at the time of the collision, I feel I was reincarnated. Because of this, neither I nor my way of life are what they once were.

I was a complete secular, yet in the days following the accident I suddenly had an intuitive understanding of mystical texts like the Kabbala and the like. Experiencing the presence of both evil and good spirits, having precognitive dreams, having synchronistic encounters with numbers, etc. The secrets of creation started coming to me in dreams and visions, and I started seeing souls instead of bodies when I look at humans. I’ve always been a really sensible and down-to-earth individual, so spiritual matters have never particularly interested me. After a freak accident that would have killed 99.9 percent of individuals, I walked out unscathed but with a profoundly altered sense of who I am as a person.

Although I still have a deep, abiding affection for my current immediate family, I can hardly recognize their souls or the soul connection I once shared with them. Instead, I have a strong bond with a few angelic figures and hold fast to the notion that I am a resident of the past.

While I do use my talent to assist others on a regular basis, I have done so in secret for many years. I didn’t have a Near-Death Experience; rather, I’m a Walk-In, and my spirit has resided in this body for a very long time.

 

Mike has many years of extensive mentoring experience. He has experience as a martial arts instructor, police officer, and corrections officer, and he has mastered the skills of instructing, mentoring, and inspiring.

His primary objective is to assist others in overcoming obstacles, overcoming pain, and achieving their life goals.

 

This event will be recorded. The recording is included free with your RSVP to the event.

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

About the facilitator 

Rabbi Stephen Robbins, Psy.D., D.D., co-founder and co-Rabbi with his wife, Rabbi/Cantor Eva Robbins of N’vay Shalom, co-founder for the AJRCA (Academy for Jewish Religion, California), first Transdenominational seminary on the West Coast, also a Kabbalist and practitioner of Kabbalistic healing. He is a Clinical Psychologist with a specialty in the Psychoneuroimmunology of trauma and brain development. He integrates the science and the mysticism into a unified system of human development. This system is particularly applied to those with NDEs. Rabbi Robbins has had 8 NDEs as well as 13 surgeries and multiple STE’s. His work focus’ on the positive messages he has received from his spiritual guides through his 8 NDEs. Many Jews who have had transformative experiences do not know how to deal with them. He works to provide, through his insights, support and guidance for others to find the deeper meanings through the uniquely Jewish concepts of eternal living, both in this world and the worlds to come.

About Diane


Diane Corcoran, an Army nurse who has been there – from Vietnam to Desert Storm. Dr. Corcoran served as a nurse from the Vietnam War to Desert Storm. In 1969, she cared for a 19 yr. old wounded
Vietnam combat soldier who wanted to share his NDE on the battlefield, but was extremely worried that no one would
believe him. Instinctively, Diane listened to his account with care and compassion. Though the term NDE was not yet
coined, she knew that his extremely emotional experience had a profound life changing impact on him. Since that day,
she has dedicated her life to educating the international medical community about NDE and provided validation, education and support for active military and veteran experiencers. Dr. Corcoran served as a former President of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) and continues to serve as a Board of Director. In addition, she is the founder of Corcoran Consulting and The Vet NDE Project.
