30 Years of Near-Death-Experience Research: Integrating the Past, Anticipating the Future

2006 IANDS Annual Conference
October 25-28 University of Texas - MD Anderson Cancer Center Houston, TX

30 Years of Near-Death-Experience Research: Integrating the Past, Anticipating the Future

The IANDS 2006 annual conference will be unprecedented. For the first time, it will be cosponsored and held at one of the world’s largestmedical complexes, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Most of the world’s leading NDE researchers and experts will be speaking, including Raymond Moody, Peter Fenwick, Pim Van Lommel, Janice Holden, Bruce Greyson, PMH Atwater, Sam Parnia, Pam Kircher, Maggie Callanan, and many, many more. This gathering will be unparalleled since Raymond Moody’s Life after Life was first published 30 years ago.

The four-day conference will be divided into two separate segments. The first 2 days will be a comprehensive and critical review of 30 years of NDE research, recommendations for future research, and applications for palliative, end-of-life, and other clinical and educational settings. The second two days will include specialized presentations on the past 30 yers of near-death studies as well as panel discussions of recent developments and future directions. In addition, there will be sessions in the latter two days devoted to the needs and interests of experiencers.

Registration for each two-day segment will be separate, though interested participants are encouraged to attend all four days. The first two-day segment is especially designed for anyone seeking in-depth knowledge of NDE research and its applications, and is ideal for physicians, psychologists, nurses, counselors, social workers, emergency medical technicians, clergy, chaplains, and any other physical, psychological, or spiritual health-care providers.

Continuing education credits (CEs) are already approved for nurses, National Certified Counselors, and various Texas healthcare professionals. We are seeking CEs for additional ategories of health providers. Visit the IANDS website for the most current developments.

Save money on discounted early bird registration before September 10.
