VITALIZE Yourself Holistically to Increase Your Vitality and Balance
Many people are very busy as they juggle life’s demands. That’s why I’ve found techniques and understandings that provide great benefits for a relatively small investment of time, energy and money. These approaches are time-tested, safe, and efficient. There is a way to meet life’s daily demands, enjoy the greatest life of your dreams, AND fulfill your purposes for being on earth at this time. Each class can be taken individually.

Testimonials


Sarah
Found My Tribe
Image is not available
Sarah

I gathered up my courage to share my story that morning, and was blown away. The people were all so kind and welcoming, which was so so helpful to this shy girl. And there were a few people who had similar stories to mine. I left that meeting feeling so free and happy and like I had found my tribe.

Brian
Important For Exploration
Image is not available
Brian

It is through bringing experiences such as “miraculous” healing — along with other phenomena associated with NDEs and their aftermath — into view that the sharing sessions reveal strong and undeniable connections between the inframental realm and the seemingly physical world. For reasons like these I find the sharing groups very important in my own explorations into philosophy of science (understood as including the “paranormal”).

Wendy
Where The Rubber Meets The Road
Image is not available
Wendy

When I started a list last week of what everyone at ISGO has done for me, I had to catch myself halfway through the process when I realized I had written over eighteen pages. In short, I owe everyone at IANDS and ISGO more than can be adequately expressed. I truly believe these meetings to be where the rubber meets the road. From the vantage point of someone in my position, ISGO is what makes IANDS tangible and real.

Wendy
Mutual Caring

Wendy

I am so grateful to have this group where I can honestly and safely share about my experiences without feeling shut down. There is a real sense of mutual caring among the members.

Thomas
Talk Without Fear

Thomas

Equally beneficial is learning from others’ experiences and the fellowship I feel in the groups. And my impression of others at these meetings is that it is hugely beneficial for them as well. They are, for me, a tremendous help and resource. I cannot emphasize enough the positive impact they have had for me.

Nadine
The Power Of Kindness
Image is not available
Nadine

After 6 months I finally felt comfortable speaking up for the first time in my life. To the point that I actually looked forward to being able to speak, and feel the freedom of being myself and speaking my truth. That is the power of kindness; the power of having people in the group accept me as I am, and validate my feelings. As well as never be put down, judged, or kicked out of the group for not conforming to what the status quo believes.

Johann
Wish They Were Longer

Johann

I think these groups are great. The only pitfall seems to be time. I find them almost too short to hear everyone’s contributions. I always wish they could be 3h long sometimes.

Karen
These Groups Are A Lifeline
Image is not available
Karen

These groups have been a lifeline and a Godsend to me (No pun intended)… I feel very connected to others in the groups and look forward to seeing them; I love that we can connect with people in all different parts of the world to share our commonality, and sense of being.
