“You Will Be Okay Speak Softly” 
with Lisa Ward, Friday, October 9 at 3:30 pm PDT | 6:30 pm EDT

Lisa Ward will be sharing with you what many call a spiritual transformative experience . Her inspirational story started with serious health concerns beginning in 2012.

Lisa lives in the Syracuse area. She was diagnosed with several serious conditions including two brain tumors – one on the cerebellum, one on the pituitary gland. She had a 5mm lung tumor, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy, chiari malformation with hydrosyringomyelia, COPD, bowel and bladder incontinence and the list goes on.

She would end up in the hospital by ambulance at least once a week. Lisa could no longer do anything that she could once do. She was in constant pain. Lisa had been to the NY Presbyterian Hospital in NYC, she had been to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, she had been to Chiari Institute in Long Island. She was becoming deeply depressed and running out of hope. Hospice had called, Blue Cross/Blue Shield called frequently.

She went to bed one night asking God to take her, to forgive her and let her die. Lisa sobbed herself to sleep and woke around 4am, eyes still wet with tears to a voice like no other. This voice said “You will be ok speak softly.” A love and a peace overcame her, she had no pain for the first time in almost 4 years.

Lisa is now a reiki master, a hypnosis consultant and is NLP certified. She will share with you her journey and the amazing things she learned along the way to healing. She will speak on unconditional love and the power of meditation and discovering her purpose.

Durham IANDS Guest Speaker Webinar

When her training as a psychologist failed to explain these events, she reluctantly followed the breadcrumbs down a path which resulted in an extraordinary adventure into the unknown.

Candice Sanderson – The Reluctant Messenger
Friday, November 20, 7 pm Eastern (4 pm Pacific)

In August 2013, Candice M. Sanderson’s life changed forever in a ten-minute period of time. When her training as a psychologist failed to explain these events, she reluctantly followed the breadcrumbs down a path which resulted in an extraordinary adventure into the unknown. The Reluctant Messenger chronicles her expedition across a vast expanse of universal consciousness that resulted in new truths about life that she thought she had known so well. Candice soon discovered she questioned everything she knew:

“Before that August morning, I epitomized normalcy—others might have called my life boring. I went to work each day, came home, read a book, and talked on the phone or sat in front of some sort of electronic screen. My life revolved around my work and my children. In 1987, at the age of thirty-five, my husband died, and I was left to raise my son and daughter by myself. Both are now married with children of their own. As a psychologist, I differentiated normal from abnormal, and my life represented nothing but the commonplace.

 

“On August 28, 2013, a brief experience changed everything. The foundation of my belief system cracked. I had to suspend my assumptions about the world to make room for different truths. As a result, I careened off life’s comfortable, and perhaps mundane, path. I now view the universe quite differently. Looking back, my life before that ten-minute experience seems as if it belonged to someone else. The previous six decades of comfortable living became unrecognizable.”

“This book is instantly approachable and ultimately satisfying as an exposé of what it means to be human on this planet at this time, in this age.”
Laurin Bellg, M.D, author of Near Death in the ICU

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

The 2nd of 10 independent, interactive sessions in The Greater Reality Living series [this series is being renamed to “Creating the Life You Envision”] with Dr. Mark Pitstick. Today’s session is dealing with a contemplative technique for having a Life Review. This technique can deepen your awareness for connecting to the greater reality for living now.

Creating the Life You Envision*** with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
Saturday, September 26 at 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT)

The Life Review Technique

*** This is the second of 10 independent interactive & presentation-oriented sessions… (this was formerly called “The Greater Reality Living Series”)***.

SHORT DESCRIPTION

If you were to pass on today, what would your life review be like?  Would it be a work of art, or not so much?  Find out in this session so you can improve and make amends.  This technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.  Note: the webinar fee includes unlimited access to the video recording of this session (access to the video is available even if the live event is missed).

LONGER DESCRIPTION

This technique was originally developed by Ken Ring, PhD, early director of IANDS and professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut.  Author of Lessons from the Light and other books, he has worked with many people who had near-death experiences (NDE).  In his research, Dr. Ring found that the life-review was one of the most impactful aspects of NDEs.

Further, he found that you do not have to nearly die to benefit from a life-review.  Visualizing it during a deeply relaxed state can infer powerful positive changes.   Dr. Ring, now retired, gave me his permission to continue this aspect of his work.

The Life Review Technique is a life-transformative approach that uses deep relaxation and visual imagery to simulate dying and the subsequent life-review.  Processing that experience can produce very real changes that shape your life for the better now.  Using this technique can deepen your awareness of greater reality living and how you choose to live during your earthly visit.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

A life-review can be a potent reminder about what is most important in life.  It can help you focus on your priorities and the purposes you had for choosing this earth-experience at this time.  The life review is not punitive; it is a great opportunity to learn valuable lessons that stay with you through eternity.  This feedback helps you do better the next time you are in a similar situation.

Using this technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living and applying information from Greater Reality Living (co-authored by Mark and Gary E. Schwartz PhD).  You also can share this technique with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

The Big Picture of Life – co-authored by Mark, 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 this book with young people in your life.

If you are truly sorry for inappropriate actions in the past, those can be erased and reformatted in the way you could have acted (not should have, for there is no outside judgment here).  The life-review technique can help you more deeply realize your interconnectedness with all life and why the Golden Rule makes obvious sense.

You also can enjoy a “mini-LRT” each night when you go to bed.  Simply review your day with self-praise for your positive thoughts/words/deeds.  Then consider the ways that you could have done better and visualize yourself doing so the next time around.   Feel for ways that you can make amends or improve and resolve to do so.

Dr. Pitstick has used deep relaxation and visual imagery techniques with thousands of persons in private sessions and groups since earning his clinical psychology masters’ degree in 1980.  During the actual technique during this webinar, your audio and video will be blocked so you can relax in the privacy of your home during this group experience.

Recommendations Before the Session

  • Be rested since the induction techniques used are very conducive to sleep.
  • If possible, sit up instead of lying down during the session.

  • Avoid using alcohol or recreational drugs for at least three days beforehand.
  • Get as relaxed as possible before the experience.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that will not bind as you sit still for 45 minutes.
  • Bring lip salve to prevent dry lips during the open-mouth breathing.
  • Drink water and use the bathroom just before your session.
  • Turn off all phones, pagers, or other potentially interrupting devices

Recommendations After the Session

  • Enjoy some quiet time to internalize your lessons, insights, and inner peace.
  • Be careful and really focus if you drive soon afterwards.
  • Keep a journal to note any additional insights that arrive in dream or waking states.

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.  If you have a history of significant mental illness, obtain permission from your doctor or therapist before using this technique.

Biography:

Four months after IANDS was incorporated in Connecticut in November of 1981, I was hired as Office Manager, its first paid staff person. Previously I had taught middle school English and French, been librarian for a major anthropological foundation and grant writer and research associate for one of the first pediatric nurse practitioner programs in the U.S., and served as Director of Client Services for a large Federal employment and training program. IANDS was something different. When the Association closed that office, I became a freelance technical writer so I could continue my work with distressing NDEs, and was soon back with IANDS as a member of the Board of Directors, then President. Around 2010, with Bruce Greyson’s prodding, I wrote Dancing Past the Dark: Distressing Near-Death Experiences, followed by The Buddha in Hell and Other Alarms. Book #3 is in process, still untitled; it is about how integrating my own NDE led to a new cosmology..

My bachelor’s degree in English is from SUNY-Albany, with a certificate in French from McGill University.   A few years after coming to IANDS, I did a Master’s in Pastoral Ministry from St. Joseph’s University so I could learn about mysticism.

My three children are adults, and there are seven grandchildren and two great-grands. My long-time partner and I live next to a salt marsh in coastal North Carolina.

The Big Picture of Life – Free Webinar

A free webinar for covering existential questions for yourself and the young people (& others) that you care about in your life. Based on the pictures and themes covered in this kid’s book for all of us!

The Big Picture of Lifewith Katta Mapes & Mark Pitstick

Have your questions been answered? Even so, how do you answer if someone you know and care about asks these questions?

How do you answer the questions of life for yourself?

  • Who am I?
  • What happens when I die?
  • Are there angels or spiritual beings?
  • Why aren’t all prayers answered?

And how then do you answer those questions when someone you care about, young or old, asks them to you!?
