In view of Robin William’s suicide, Dr. Raymond Moody talks about suicide

Dr. Raymond Moody is a psychiatrist and NDE (near-death experience) researcher who’s most famous as an author of books about life after death and NDEs, a term that he coined in 1975 in his best-selling book Life After Life.

It is a series of short clips of Dr. Moody talking about suicide. One of his key points:  attempters who did not have an NDE before revival will consistently attempt suicide again. Attempters who DID have NDEs will not attempt again. Thank you so much Dr Moody for sharing this with us!

Mary Deioma, featured speaker at July 12th, 2014 meeting in Tustin


Mary Deioma

Even if you have heard Mary Deioma speak before about her conscious NDE (near-death experience) and multiple OBE’s (out-of-body experience), she’ll be sharing new stories not yet  reveaed.  

They include prophecies that have not yet come true and some that have, with dates and evidence to validate information received before the event. Science and advances in the electron microscope technology has just (March 2013) given us a view into the sub-atomic realm images and video that validates the details revealed in her 2001 experience. Included, stunningly beautiful images that reveal the sun is a conscious loving being.

Mary has had many after death communications and video evidence of paranormal activity, and will talk about other time travel experiences not in her book, Loved: A Transcendent Journey.

This presentation will touch your heart and reveal information that will probably be new to you.


Mary is fifth of eight children and currently lives in Santa Ana. She spent the bulk of her adult career as an accounting clerk before her transformation. Now she is an author and public speaker, with a personal mission to “share the love and to get the word out that we are Loved”.

She is a member and contributor to, and frequent speaker at IANDS groups in the southwest, and at the Life after Life group in Laguna Woods.

Mary volunteers as producer and graphic designer for Carribean Radio Show (NDE’s) and Soul of Wellness Radio. She welcomes anyone interested in being a guest for either show. Monday’s for NDE 5pm-7pm SOW 7pm-8pm Pacific.

She is a Reiki Master, reads playing cards (cartomancy), a former volunteer board member for the Learning Light metaphysical center, and founder of Sun Whisperers, a Facebook page that reports of space weather and solar activity.


Meeting on June 14, 2014 with Speaker JAVIER PERAZA, Tustin, CA

Javier Peraza

Javier Peraza

On March 30, 2006 at 4:11AM, Javier experienced a Distressing/Negative NDE-Like event that forever changed his life, 180 degrees, overnight.

A sort of Metamorphosis transformed him from an emotionally distant, disconnected robot into an empathic, energetic human being.  The most fundamental of his dogmas/philosophies were dramatically altered:

  1. From believing in the Finality of Existence, to knowing a Continuum of Creation.
  2. From feeling Insecure and being Anti-Social, to living Carpe Diem.
  3. From hoarding Riches, to having Rags, to sharing Riches.

The incorporation of and acclimation to this new Self did not come without a hefty price, literally and figuratively.  It took 7 years of self-destructive behavior and soul-searching adventures that ultimately culminated with his arrival at the OC IANDS Group on January 12, 2013.

Since that fateful Saturday afternoon, he has continued attending meetings and sharing whatever bits and pieces of his story that might help those in attendance. On June 14, 2014, for the first time, he will tell the whole story…

Bill McKenna scheduled to speak Saturday, May 10, 2014

Bill McKenna, author of The Only Lesson


Bill will share his life of intense experiences, which lead to a constant struggle with crash-and-burn relationships and a battle with depression.  His journey brought financial success and catastrophe, but nothing in his life would compare to the intensity of what he was about to experience – a spiritual journey and spontaneous awakening after an accident. He’ll also talk about the choice we make to respond to life situations either with fear or love, letting go of old anger​ and resentment​.  He’ll lead the group in a couple of short exercises that can allow for the freeing of these emotions.

Date:     Saturday, ​ May 10, 2014​​
Time:    1:00-4:00 pm
Place:    Unity of Tustin, Tustin, CA 

Address:​  Unity Church of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA.   Drive to the back of the church, turn left, and park. Enter the 2nd door you come to.


NDE survivor of scuba diving accident will speak at April 12th meeting


On September 29, 1984, Darlene Jaman survived a freak scuba diving accident off the coast of California. She experienced a core NDE (Near Death Experience) enveloped by the white light and an imbuing Love. This resulted in her spiritual reawakening and her birth of creative sight.

Darlene’s journey took her on a path of discovery to spend two and half years in Scotland at Findhorn Spiritual Community. Coming back to Los Angeles, she dedicated herself to help terminally ill patients who fear death.

For over a decade, Darlene facilitated and counseled the West Los Angeles friends of IANDS support group.

Darlene was raised in Los Angeles, and through the years, received extensive training in prestigious institutes of art, fashion design, and gourmet cooking.  After her NDE, painting became the way to quiet her mind, a transcendental gateway to another universe far beyond the physical limitations of the canvas. She is able to draw from gifts of sight which transcend beyond her thoughts and feelings giving over to the flow of painting, never knowing what will come onto the canvas.

Darlene will bring a couple of her pieces to the meeting which depict elements of her NDE,  also seen in her sketch below which she’ll explain during her talk.



Date:     Saturday, April 12th, 2014

While almost “dead,” he experienced a realm of great joy, beauty, and purpose.  As a result he no longer fears death, and travels the world sharing his transformative experience.
