"I love the personable nature of this conference. It's really a good size, and the people here, in many ways, just flat-out get it."
Dr. Eben Alexander, neurosurgeon
and best-selling author of "Proof of Heaven."
“I’ve been to many conferences that address life after death, but this one is a rarity because it approaches the subject from three different vantage points -- spirituality, bereavement and scientific investigation. It is inspiring to see how these different perspectives lead to the same place… an awareness of the survival of consciousness after death. The bereaved find peace and healing. The spiritual seekers find validation for their mystical experiences. And the scientific researchers find an eager audience for their work. This conference brings it all together.”
Dr. Raymond Moody, best-selling author of "Life After Life,"
the world's leading researcher on near-death experience
Where shamans break bread with scientists
Our 2015 conference will feature expanded training in psychic development and after-death communication, as well as teachings on out-of-body exploration, conscious dying and conscious grieving. Our goal is to blur the boundaries between allopathic medicine and alternative healing; between intuitive experience and scientific research; and between religious traditions and a spirituality of oneness to increase awareness of life beyond the physical body.
Where mystics, medics, scholars and spiritualists gather to share their wisdom
and create common ground
