IANDS 2018 Conference: Explore the Extraordinary-The After effects and Gifts of NDEs , August 30th-September 2nd, 2018
Dr. Bruce Greyson will deliver the KEYNOTE PRESENTATION for the IANDS 2018 Conference
“WHY NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES MATTER: CHANGED LIVES AND CHOPPED LIVER”
A rich literature has developed about NDEs, focusing on their frequency, common features, possible physiological and psychological causes, and common aftereffects. This information has been greeted by the public, to a large extent, as comforting entertainment, and it has been dismissed by scientists, to a large extent, as meaningless tricks of the brain. Are NDEs more than that? Are they important enough to demand the serious attention of both scientists and the public? Dr. Greyson argues that NDEs are far more than entertainment or brain tricks, but in fact are critically important to experiencers, to scientists, and to the public at large. He will outline why NDEs matter to experiencers, why they matter for our scientific view of the relationship between mind and brain and for scientific ideas of survival of consciousness after death, why they matter for how we provide medical care, and finally why they matter for how we all lead our lives and view our role in the universe.

Do We Survive Death? The evidence suggests YES… but not in the way you might think…
Since the beginning of human existence, we have been asking the question, “What – if anything – happens to us after death?” For millennia, these answers have been given to us almost exclusively through our religious traditions. Over the past 400 years, science has been challenging that religious view with its own; many scientists claiming that “you” are only your brain, and that “you” just vanish when your brain stops working. In his talk, Patrick Belisle will share evidence that you are much more than your brain and show you how modern research reveals that some part of you does survive death.
The presentation will also include two short videos, plus you will hear ideas from Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Edgar Cayce, Carl Sagan, Ian Stevenson, and – perhaps most interestingly – from people who have, themselves, survived death.

International Symposium for Contemplative Research 2018
The Intersection of Contemplation, Research, and Daily Life
November 8–11, 2018 | Phoenix, AZ
Dr. Kim Penberthy will participate in a collaborative panel presentation titled:
“Off the Cushion and into the Streets: Diversity and Inclusion in Contemplative Science.”
Dr. Penberthy is co-presenting with Marin Davidson of the UVA Darden School of Business, Michael Swanberg of UVA Public Health, and Dallas Ducar of the UVA School of Nursing. This presentation will take place in room Coyote/Buzzard/Eagle at the conference center.
Dr. Jim Tucker will present “Life Before Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives”, at the upcoming Vail Symposium.
This program will explore the various features of this worldwide phenomenon, with Dr. Tucker describing numerous cases along the way. Common features in the cases include a child talking about a past life at a very early age; behaviors that appear connected to that life, such as phobias related to the mode of death and sometimes birthmarks or birth defects that correspond to wounds the previous person suffered.
The presentation will include a review of the research and the details of recent American cases.
March 14th, 2019, 6:00-7:30 pm, Vail, CO
