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.

About the facilitator

The Rev. Stephanie Chase Bradbury has been an Episcopal Priest for 25 years and has professionally counseled many people who’ve had NDE’s and STE’s. She herself has had a number of Spiritually Transformative Experiences beginning at age 6. Stephanie is drawn to the bright overlap between matter and spirit, and how life in this reality is intertwined with the transcendent. She feels called to act as a translator to a world that is often blind to the astonishing wonder of All That Is, and help facilitate the processing of those who have been touched by the extraordinary. Stephanie has led retreats, spoken at Boston IANDS gatherings, and been interviewed for the Leap from Within podcast. While grounded in the Christian tradition, Stephanie welcomes insight both from within organized religions and beyond. You can learn more at Grannypriest.com.

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.

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.

IANDS Book Club with author David Oakford

“Soul Bared” is the detailed near-death experience of David Oakford. Triggered initially by a fatal drug overdose, he was initially bewildered and frightened to find that we do not “die”. Instinctively praying to God, David was rescued by a guardian angel he calls “Bob”. He was shown various life-after-death realms involving light beings, dark souls, the life-force energy dynamics of earth and its inhabitants, plus lessons-learned teachings revealed by a panel of evaluators. Clearly written, this detailed account weaves the overriding message that Love is the answer to life’s questions throughout this spiritual journey beyond the veil of death.
