IANDS - Explore Near Death Experiences

Near Death Experience Resources

“Everybody should do in their lifetime, sometime, two things. One is to consider death…to observe skulls and skeletons and to wonder what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up-never. That is a most gloomy thing for contemplation; it’s like manure. Just as manure fertilizes the plants and so on, so the contemplation of death and the acceptance of death is very highly generative of creating life. You’ll get wonderful things out of that.” – Alan Watts

International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS)

Death Experiences – Are they completely natural, but we don’t yet have the science to understand them? IANDS has been providing the highest quality information available about NDE-related subjects since 1975. It began as an informal consortium of academic researchers, including Raymond Moody, MD, author of Life After Life, John Audette, MS, Bruce Greyson, MD, Kenneth Ring, PhD, and Michael Sabom, MD. Continuing academic pursuits, today IANDS publishes a peer-reviewed scholarly journal and a member magazine, maintains an information-rich website, sponsors conferences and other programs, works with the media, and encourages the formation of regional discussion and support groups. IANDS’ purpose is clear: “promote responsible, multi-disciplinary exploration of near-death and similar experiences, their effects on people’s lives, and their implications for beliefs about life, death, and human purpose.” Learn more about IANDS…
