*** The 2014 IANDS North American Conference will be August 28-31 at the Marriott Hotel in Newport Beach, California. The theme this year is "Hope, Healing & Life Transformations." If you never been to a conference on the near-death experience and related subjects, treat yourself this year and come. Near-death conferences are like no others. There is a friendliness that pervades, a sincere interest in all who are there, a sense of joy. This is the one thing people comment on first - not the speakers - the love that is there, the sense of "this is your family." There's just not another type of conference anywhere that has the "feel" this one does. To find out more about it, contact IANDS directly: firstname.lastname@example.org; www.iands.org; (919) 383-7940; 2741 Campus Walk Avenue, Building 500, Durham, NC 27705.
*** Still need more drawings from near-death experiencers. If you are an experiencer of a near-death or near-death-like state, please send me a drawing/picture/sketch/image of what happened to you, what you saw, or want to convey. Must be one page size, color or black and white, and can be a Word attachment sent to email@example.com, or paper sent via postal to P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D., P. O. Box 7691, Charlottesville, VA 22906. No drawings can be returned. Drawings must be accompanied by permission to use, your first and last name, your age when it happened, basic cause or condition. All drawings will become a part of a film/DVD/ power-point to be played as background to any talk I give about my new book coming out this August. The book features the collective voice, the sum of the many. The drawings illustrate the heart of that collective. Love to hear from you. PMH
