Ines Beyer, MSc, author of “Death is Not the End”, our speaker on May 13, 2017

Ines Beyer will be speaking on the subjects in her book on death and the afterlife, research that suggests consciousness exists outside the human brain and body; insights out-of-body and near-death experiences can provide.

  • Have you wondered what happens to your consciousness after your body dies?
  • Are you hoping for, or believing in an afterlife, but just aren’t sure?
  • Would you prefer more evidence that leads beyond religion, mediums, or blind faith?

Would you like to know:

  • How we continue to live after physical death and what to expect.
  • The three types of “deaths” (or deactivations), and how they affect our awareness.
  • How we spend the period between lives and the importance of a life mission.
  • Ways to come to peace with leaving this life, and letting family, friends, or partners go.

9781504369848_p0_v1_s192x300

The full title of Ines’ book is:  “Death is Not The End: Understanding the Transition between Lives”,  available at BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com.

“This is the best book on death and the nature of the soul that I have ever read – and I have read most of them. A unique combination of research, empirical observation, and well-grounded theory, “Death is Not the End” is a jewel. Ines Beyer has contributed greatly to our knowledge of our nature with this publication. This deserves to be a best seller.”
– 
Denis Purcell,  retired electrical engineer, secondary math and science teacher, and
president of the Los Angeles International Association for Near-Death Studies
“Personally, I have walked out-of-body in the afterlife, traveling well beyond the horizon of our perceived physical reality, during my own near-death experience. So, I know that the concepts of OBE and NDE are valid. I welcome this new model and will use it in my work.”
       – Alan R. Hugenot, Ph.D., author of The Death Experience: What it is like when you die.

Ines Beyer, M.Sc., is the author of the book “Death is Not the End,” and winner of the International Excellence Body, Mind, Spirit Book Award.

“HOME:  How NDEs Point to a Location That is Not Here”

Rich Martini will discuss the latest research that he’s done with his most recent book, “Hacking the Afterlife.”  A filmmaker and author, Martini began his research into the flipside with his documentary and book “Flipside: A Tourist’s Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife.”  His follow up book “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife (Volumes 1 and 2)” explored Near-Death Experiences (NDE), and those who’ve had both an NDE and a between life session with a hypnotherapist to explore the memory of the NDE. hacking

In “Hacking the Afterlife” he converses with a number of people who claim to have access to the flipside, and delves into interviews with mediums who bring back “new information” from those who are no longer on the planet.

In his research into NDE’s and other consciousness altered events, (people under hypnosis, via an Out of Body Experience or some other event), he’s often come across the concept that people refer to the flipside as “home.”  In this talk, he’ll examine how it could be that “home” is not here, where we are, but somewhere else.

Rich is a frequent guest on George Noory’s Coast to Coast AM. His website, http://www.richmartini.com/

Rich is a popular speaker. It’s suggested to arrive at the meeting early to assure seating.

​Nelson Abreu

Date:          Saturday, ​September 12, 2015

Time:         1:00-4:00 pm

Place:         Unity 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).

Nelson Abreu from the International Academy of Consciousness​ (IAC)​ will lead a discussion on the positive effects and potential implications of the out-of-body experience for personal and social transformation. In addition to spontaneous or near-death OBEs which tend to bring positive behavioral changes and life mission inspiration to those who have them, intentional OBEs could provide a similar catalyst for development to a greater number of people.  Nelson will discuss how researchers and practitioners at IAC and other organizations are furthering this vision of a larger number of “multidimensionally-aware” individuals.

Nélson Abreu serves as vice-director of Research and Scientific Communication at International Academy of Consciousness (IAC). The ​electrical ​engineer, educator, and author began experiencing and studying transformative, “multidimensional” consciousness phenomena such as out-of-body experiences (OBEs) since 1998. Nelson enjoys sharing experiences and ideas based on his own research and what he has learned from colleagues and students he has encountered in the past 2 decades.  He teaches about OBEs, subtle energy, lucid dreaming, near-death experience, psychic and spiritual development at IAC since 2003.

His studies have encompassed consciousness and its relationship with extraordinary human experiences like out-of-body experience, subtle energy and psychometry, as well as economics, biological evolution, physics, and engineering.

Most recently, he joined leading and emerging minds in the field at the first International Congress of Consciousness Science in Portugal (May 2015), where he unveiled a sound-based system he co-developed to facilitate subtle energy and OBE states. He has presented at colleges ​all over the world.​

Guest speaker Michaela Chatterjee will talk about her experience with death as a 17 yr old

24f8f5c

Michaela Chatterjee will share her vivid near-death experience that occurred in 1994 when she was 17 years old.  On the way back from a family reunion, she was sleeping in the backseat when her family’s car was hit from behind resulting in a severe accident.  Michaela recalls the wind blowing in her face as she was strapped to the gurney on the side of the road. She was being wheeled to a helicopter that would airlift her to the hospital. The next thing she remembers is being engulfed by a white light around the same time she briefly flatlined during the airlift.  She will talk about her experience with death and how it helps her live a more fulfilling life.

Michaela is now a thriving behavioral therapist specializing in the after affects of near-death experiences.

Michaela’s story was featured on the acclaimed A&E tv show, “I Survived: Beyond and Back”.

___________________________________________________________________

In 2005, Dr. Rajiv Parti, an anesthesiologist, encountered the first of a series of life-threatening health challenges: a cancer diagnosis followed by four operations. Afterwards he developed addiction to the pain medications he once prescribed for others and severe depression from pain and the pills he became addicted to.

Dr. Parti had to endure seven surgeries for the cancer and ensuing complications. During his 7th surgery, dying from sepsis with a 105 degree fever, Dr. Parti left his body to hang above the operating room, his consciousness fully intact. He was then suddenly tossed into a horrific darkness, a living hell, where he experienced a bewildering life review. This was followed by a visitation from his dead, abusive father who imparted his son with profound guidance and eternal truths that would change everything in his life. This stunning experience revealed to Dr. Parti his true purpose in this lifetime – to help others forgive, love and heal. His soul contract, his dharma, became that of a spiritual healer of the soul, especially the pain and suffering that comes from diseases such as addiction and depression.

Dr. Parti now helps others overcome their own personal suffering. Gone are the days of Dr. Parti putting people to sleep; his mission now is to wake them up.

Today, the insights gained from his NDE has propelled Dr. Parti to several write books, speak around the world and offer compelling, transformative workshops on spiritual wellness. Dr. Parti contends that no one has to endure an NDE to heal from suffering. Dr. Parti teaches others that transformative healing is available right now if we choose to forgive ourselves and others, while practicing self-love and selfless acts of service.
