Why Are We Here? with Sandi Taranto

Why are we here? An experiencer of multiple childhood NDEs shares what she learned. DFW Friends of IANDS.

Growing up as a foster child, Sandi Taranto suffered unspeakable abuse including both neglect and torture. One particular episode when she was 5 or 6 years old, in which she was the victim of strangulation and was declared dead at the hospital, prompted an out-of-body near-death experience (NDE), but between the ages of 3 and 7, she endured many such abuses and had multiple NDEs. Not just a survivor, but a diligent and earnest seeker as well, Sandi has explored some of the deepest questions of existence, and, spurred relentlessly by information and wisdom she received during her NDEs, she has gained a keen perspective on the workings of the cosmos and the meaning of human existence.

Attend in person to talk with Sandi and get your questions answered.

About Sandi

Sandi Taranto lived for several years as a child under the care of foster parents who were extremely abusive, and had several NDEs during that period. Decades later, she is a mother herself, and has begun to share her experiences with a wider audience.

Revisiting The NDE Event Using Guided Meditation

Author of Divine Councils in the Afterlife discusses using guided meditation to access one’s NDE, or communicate, learn new information from one’s guides on the flipside.

Revisiting The NDE Event Using Guided Meditation

Saturday, FEBRUARY 18th, 2023 @ 1pm EST

 

A Message from Richard:

The subject of my talk will be “How to revisit the NDE using guided meditation ” based on my recent book “Divine Councils in the Afterlife. ” (Divinecouncils.com)

In the research I demonstrate how a person can revisit an event that occurred, including the NDE, using a simple exercise of guided meditation.

How people (including Scientists, Clergy) report being able to meet guides, teachers, fellow classmates on the flipside, learn new information from their experience, and ask and answer questions about their experience.

The talk will include examples of people who used hypnotherapy to access their NDE, and then examples of how people can revisit an event, or get help with accessing the event from their guides or loved ones.

Its a method of inquiry that gets the same results without hypnosis.

ABOUT RICHARD:

Richard is a filmmaker/author of ten books about the Afterlife. (Best selling in their genre at kindle.) Frequent guest on “Coast to Coast with George Noory and “Beyond Belief” on Gaia, Richard has three documentaries on the afterlife, Flipsidemyfilm.com or HackingTheAfterlifeFilm.com, “Talking to Bill Paxton” on Gaia, in addition to his latest book Divinecouncils.com.

—- About Curtis Childs —-

Director of Off The Left Eye B.A. in Communications, Oakland University While obtaining his degree in communication studies from Oakland University, Curtis experienced an internal battle with depression that led him to question God and his lifelong interest in Swedenborgian theology. After a period of intense suffering, he recovered from his depression with the help of modern medicine, therapy, and a return to the spiritually uplifting messages he found in Swedenborg’s writings. Now, Curtis is applying his education and desire to help others find peace through Swedenborg’s insights by producing and hosting this weekly webcast. He’s happiest when he can use Swedenborg’s concepts to help someone solve something they used to think was unsolvable. Curtis has been a speaker at several conferences including TCCHE and IANDS (2019).

The Power of Thought

After being enmeshed in a custody battle with her ex-husband lasting over a decade, Loretta became severely depressed and began to contemplate suicide. Her desire to relieve her suffering led her on a spiritual journey as she began searching out near death experiences on YouTube and found an incredible story that changed her mind and therefore changed her life.

The Power of Thought

Saturday, MARCH 4th, 2023 @ 1pm EST

 

For many years Loretta had been embroiled in a custody battle with her ex-husband. The constant engagement with the court system, and associated attorney’s fees, cost her tens of thousands of dollars with no end in sight. Despite her attempts to come to an agreement with her children’s father, the court filings continued year after year. Until she realized his intent was not to win custody of the kids – his goal was the battle itself.

Every day looked the same as the day before, and after a decade of court litigation, isolation, and mounting debt, Loretta became severely depressed and decided that she wanted to die. It was a subtle thought at first – made in the quiet recesses of her mind. But a thought that continued to grow over time, until she began to develop a plan.

Thankfully, after hearing an impactful story of a near death experiencer on YouTube, Loretta was able to disrupt this destructive way of thinking and change her mind. Loretta’s experience is a demonstration of the incredible impact the NDE has on the collective and the importance of being intentional with our thoughts.

ABOUT LORETTA:

Loretta’s spiritual awakening began in January, 2013 when she discovered a wonderful YouTube video of a woman who had attempted suicide only to realize that we reincarnate with the same Soulgroup of people in order to grow and evolve. Upon hearing this, she knew that she had finally found something she had been seeking for years.

Her love of reading assisted her in her thirst for knowledge. She began reading Your Soul’s Plan by Robert Schwartz, Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch and found a wonderful site called Jeshua Channelings at http://www.jeshua.net to name a few!

In 2014, she developed a fascination with Past Life Regression Therapy and read many books by Brian Weiss and Michael Newton though still not realizing that PLR therapy was a part of her purpose. In 2015, she became a Level II Reiki Healer.

In 2016, while recovering from a broken ankle, she began studying A Course In Miracles. During her study, she was led to demonstrate her own forgiveness practice by reaching out to those whom she had been holding a grudge against for years. This cleared her energies and put her in alignment with her true self.

In March 2018, she took Dolores Cannon’s Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy course and became a certified practitioner. In May of the same year she was trained by hypnotherapist Antonio Sangio in Introspective Hypnosis.

Loretta is currently focused on her YouTube where she interviews near death experiencers, teaches ACIM, and discusses many spiritual topics such as reincarnation, psychic intuition and mediumship, and how we create as individuations of Source. Loretta lives in New Jersey with her three children.

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

Alcoholic Atheist’s NDE Begets New Life

Louisa Peck’s NDE challenged her world-view – and her addiction-centered existence – to the core. Presented by the Dallas/Fort Worth IANDS Group.

What happens when an avid atheist, who is also an alcoholic, undergoes a vivid near-death experience (NDE) too real to deny?

Easy: She denies it anyway!

At age 22, Louisa Peck went against her deepest knowledge and made up a brain chemistry explanation for her experience, because if she were to acknowledge the existence of a spiritual realm, she’d have to give up the booze and cocaine that seemed to make life worth living.
For two reasons, however, her story doesn’t end there. First, even as she continued to drink and chase false idols, spiritual energies began to manifest for her – dark ones at first, because she was trapped in darkness. Second, the angel who, on the other side, had cradled her and bathed her with love somehow broke through to communicate with her and show her the path to a beautiful, meaningful, and joyful life.

Louisa Peck has presented twice at IANDS national conferences, as well as at Seattle IANDS where she writes the bi-monthly newsletter, presenting the stories of NDErs and other STErs whom she interviews. Now clean and sober for 27 years in Alcoholics Anonymous, she also shares her experience, strength, and hope as a featured speaker at large events and publishes a blog on addiction recovery in light of NDE spirituality. A former English and Literature professor at various colleges and universities in the Seattle area, Louisa is a lively speaker who shares easily, descriptively, and with a good dose of humor.

Mas Sajady has unprecedented abilities and access to universal knowledge stemming from two near-death experiences, which has helped him to transform hundreds of thousands of lives in short amounts of time.

Multiple Near-Death Experiences & Highly Advanced Human Abilities

Mas Sajady has always been intuitively gifted and like many others, he hid or ignored his highly intuitive nature so he could “fit in” and it took Mas two near death experiences to awaken and embrace his abilities.
His first near-death experience was in his early twenties and aside from the crushed jaw and torqued neck, it was the best experience he has ever had. “The beauty, peace and love present during this experience can never compare to anything we have on earth at this physical level”, says Mas. After this experience, his intuitive abilities were heightened and he was able to sense future events and the internal issues of others.

His second near-death experience occurred in 2006 and was his second best life experience. This second near death experience opened Mas to even higher levels of awareness which guided him to greater abilities to transform lives.
He started working on clients professionally in November of 2009 and within less than a year, he had worked on over a thousand individuals who were drawn to him by referral. Through his events, individual sessions, and frequent speaking engagements worldwide, Mas has been able to touch countless individuals around the world. Whether it is physical or emotional health, finances, relationships or spirituality, Mas can change your frequency in order to Be Limitless & enjoy Spherical Abundance in all aspects of your life.

Recently, Mas has had a third near-NDE which has propelled him to even greater heights. He is experiencing a huge upgrade, spiritually and physically, and is still integrating the experience.

Join Mas for this awe-inspiring talk, as he gives a raw and in-depth personal account of his near-death experiences. For the first time publicly, Mas will share the details of his recent spiritual upgrades and transformation following the third near-NDE, as well as the impact that this has on his mission and on the consciousness of humanity.

The Amazing Life of a Double-Dead Redhead

Founder and Group Leader of IANDS Santa Barbara in 2011, Barbara Bartolome has had two Near-Death Experiences (1958 & 1987) and she believes they opened her life up to many incredibly amazing and truly astounding connections with God/Creator/Supreme Being, all of which guided her, literally saved her life, and cleared the path for her to fulfill her life purpose.

The Amazing Life of a Double-Dead Redhead

Saturday, January 21st, 2022 @ 1pm EST

 

Founder and Group Leader of IANDS Santa Barbara, Barbara Bartolome will share the story about her 1987 near-death experience (NDE), at age 31, where she flatlined during a medical procedure and watched her resuscitation from a ceiling vantage point, while communicating to an incredible, loving entity who she deeply felt was God/The Creator. When she returned to her body, she shocked the neurosurgeon, orthopedic surgeon, and medical support team with the accurate details of what she’d seen and heard them doing during her cardiac arrest and subsequent resuscitation. At that time, very little information was available to help her discover more about experiences like hers, so she chose to not speak about her NDE again until after more than a dozen years had passed.
Barbara started assimilating her NDE and wanting to understand more about it after speaking to a nurse friend, then researching online and finding out that she wasn’t alone in experiencing an NDE. She discovered the NDERF.org website in 2007 and Barbara wrote up and submitted her NDE story for their archives, never guessing what a major opening that would bring to her life. About two years later, she was invited to the 2009 IANDS Conference in San Diego by NDERF Founder, Dr. Jeffrey Long. At that conference, having very little knowledge of NDEs and completely ignorant of their after-effects, a chance comment by one of the speakers set her upon a quest that would eventually provide a new, surprising NDE discovery for her and give her a much better understanding of the many amazing experiences that have occurred throughout her life!
Barbara founded the IANDS Santa Barbara group in August 2011 and, prior to the Covid pandemic, their in-person meetings and events routinely drew between 80-120 attendees each month. Barbara states that NDEs are opening up the world to the reality of non-local consciousness and she’s thrilled to be helping people learn that death is just a transition back “home” and that we all are here to be kind, love others, and to learn from and cherish all aspects of our life adventures while we’re here!
Barbara and her NDE have been featured on the NBC Today Show, and in the 2011 movie ‘Afterlife’, as well as in a film documentary by French Filmmaker Anthony Chene, which has currently garnered almost 770,000 views. She is featured in Guideposts’ new book ‘A Choir of Angels’, along with Kim Clark Sharp and two other NDErs experiences, in the 5th volume of the Witnessing Heaven series. Her NDE accounts have been featured in a variety of print articles including in U.S. News and World Report and The Sun (U.K.), and on a number of very popular podcasts, documentaries, TV, and radio shows.

ABOUT BARBARA:

Barbara previously held a Department of Defense SECRET Clearance, when she worked for Hughes Aircraft in the 1980s. Both she and her husband, Victor, are now retired from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), where she was recognized as an Unsung Heroine, in 2000, for her volunteer work in the Santa Barbara community. She will be serving as the 2023-2025 President of the UCSB Retiree’s Association. Barbara was named Santa Barbara’s Businesswoman of the Year in 2004, for creating, opening, and operating a wonderful paper arts store in downtown Santa Barbara. Victor, her 7’0” tall, ex-Pro Basketball husband, and Barbara enjoy their five “tall and terrific” grown, successful, and happy kids, as well as sixteen “Adopted by Love” extra kids and two “Adopted by Love” granddaughters, located all over the world – many of whom lived with the Bartolome family at various times in their lives. Barbara loves finding ways to “make a difference” in her community… and far beyond it!
