Durham, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/07/2016 -- Explore the Extraordinary Conference Open to the Public in Westminster, Colorado – August 3-6, 2017 At the The Westin, 10600 Westminster Blvd., Westminster, CO 80020

The conference title is Love, Light and Healing Energy: Affirming Near-Death Experiences.

The conference will feature bestselling authors, Eben Alexander III M.D., renown researcher Bruce Greyson and many others. There is still an opportunity to submit a proposal for consideration to participate in this conference.

The focus on this conference suggests that love and healing energy from the Light are the most frequent and powerful messages brought back by the near-death experiencer (NDErs). Affirmation comes from evidence and corroboration of these experiences gained through both personal testimony and research of the NDE phenomena. The speakers share their insight about this topic and it is all the more exciting because of the extraordinary experiences that many of the presenters have had or have helped others to integrate. The International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) is calling for proposals by potential presenters to be submitted for this conference by Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017.

Those knowledgeable in this field are invited to submit a proposal for a workshop, lecture, panel participation, poster presentation or art display. The conference objectives include promoting disclosure, description and classification of the phenomena associated with near-death and related experiences, demonstrating integration to health and wholeness in the experiencer's life. Speakers als discuss recent research on near-death-related phenomena and associated experiences, with an emphasis on achieving health and wholeness.

Have you had a near-death experience and want to share your story at this conference? Presentations of individual near-death experience (NDE) stories will be scheduled on one of the near-death experiencer (NDEr) panels. If you want to be considered for an NDEr panel, specify that in the abstract.

The policy of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) states that its purpose is to promote responsible, multi-disciplinary exploration of near-death and similar experiences. IANDS is impartial and open to the presentation of varying points of view. While all personal beliefs are respected, IANDS does not support proselytizing or promoting personal religious beliefs.
