***FEBRUARY 14 - (Via Zoom) Betty Guadagno

Betty Guadagno was a drug-addicted sex worker and self-described radical atheist when, in March of 2019, she had a spiritually transformative experience. Now, as a devout believer and in long-term recovery, she works as a life/recovery coach and lives a life beyond her wildest dreams. On Wednesday, February 14, she will join us from her home in New York via Zoom to take us through her awakening journey, where she was shown her pre-birth planning, her divine mission, and the interconnectedness of all things. Please join us this Valentine's Day to hear Betty's inspiring story.

See you there,

Pete and Jan

Other Information

The DFW Friends of IANDS exists for people who’ve had near-death and/or related experiences or who have personal or professional interest in such experiences. The purpose of the group is to provide these people with a forum in which to discuss such experiences and their meaning and integration into subsequent life. Discussion takes place in an atmosphere of openness and interest/support without judgment, proselytizing, or advice-giving.

Our meeting content varies from month to month. Sometimes we have a structured program, such as a speaker or watching a relevant video followed by discussion. Other times, we “circle up” and discuss our own NDEs and related experiences and their ongoing meaning in our lives. Although we meet in a Methodist church, the group is not affiliated with the Methodist–or any specific–religion. The church is conveniently located, and they gave us permission to use a meeting room without charge. However, those who attend and who can afford to do so are asked to make a $1 contribution to the church for our use of their meeting room.
