Fourteen speakers from a variety of academic and professional medical fields will reveal the incidents of life events and study which expose the reality of man's spiritual essence.

The keynote speaker for Thursday will be Laurin Bellg, MD, a Critical Care Physician. Dr. Bellg is a seasoned doctor taking on the head-scratching phenomenon of near-death experiences.

The second part of the program is known as the General Session, held Friday through Sunday July 29-31, 2016. Over thirty-five (35) speakers will present information on a wide range of extraordinary events. Topics will include personal accounts of near-death experiences, shared-death experiences, after-death communications, and other messages giving us the guidance of hope in our daily lives. Keynote and other special guest speakers include best-selling authors Anita Moorjani, Suzanne Giesemann, Maggie Callanan, RN and Jeff C. Olsen who is returning to share more of his ongoing experiences with the other side. There will be workshops offered for extended discussions and dialogue in various fields of interest.

The public is invited to meet these authors and others who have had near-death experiences and/or have much to share about healing and wholeness. In an effort to foster awareness, IANDS is offering a 60% discount on registration for any student.
