Vail Symposium Zoom Webinar:
Crossing the Threshold: The Continuity of Consciousness From This Life To The Next
Presenting for the Vail Symposium, Dr. Greyson will discuss issues such as challenges in researching NDEs; establishing the reality of NDEs; the most common features of the experience, including enhanced thinking and perception, the life review and out-of-body experiences, highlighting features that are independent of cultural or religious beliefs; and various models that have been proposed to explain NDEs, including the relationship of NDEs to mental illness, to various alterations in brain biology, and to psychological factors.
As startling as some of these findings are, however, Dr. Greyson’s primary interest as a psychiatrist is in how NDEs dramatically transform experiencers. In this presentation, he will discuss changes in attitudes toward life and death, changes in spirituality, and changes in behavior – both positive and challenging aftereffects.

“After Death Communications: Relevance, Impact, and Strategies to Engage”
2021 IANDS Online Conference | September 1-5, 2021
Saturday, September 4th, 2021
Time: 2:00-2:50 EDT
“IANDS: From Research to Relevance”
IANDS originally stood for International Association for Near-Death Studies. However, as the organization has focused more and more on providing support and services to near-death experiencers and less and less on research, it may be time to rebrand IANDS the International Association for Near-Death Services. I will review the history of IANDS from its founding as a collective of researchers to a source of support for experiencers and their significant others, and for reliable information for the general public. The COVID-19 pandemic has produced unprecedented global death anxiety with persistent societal and psychological consequences. That combined with global climate change and worldwide political and social unrest suggest a greater than ever need for IANDS to promote a larger perspective on life and death today.
