A non-partisan look at our whats, whys, hows, and whethers about hell, with time for questions and discussion. What is hell, anyway? What purpose does it serve? Does it matter that the Hollywood version of hell is not biblical? If we don't believe right are we doomed? Fascinating!

"Bioenergy Workout"
09:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Arizona Time)  (details)
Gabriel SereniThursday, August 30, 9 AM - 12 PM: Pre-conference workshop with Gabriel S "Bioenergy Workout" ($50 early, $60 regular)

Gabe has been a researcher for over a decade and has given lectures and workshops worldwide for years on topics related to consciousness studies, human potential, psychic development, subtle energy, out-of-body experiences and a scientific approach to spirituality. He is the coordinator of the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC)-New York Center.

The Bioenergy Workout is a fun yet informative 3-hour practical workshop during which students perform a series of diverse bioenergetic (chi, prana, subtle energy) exercises intended to help them develop their energetic capacities.  Mastering our personal energies is one of the keys to maintaining equilibrium, becoming more self-aware, identifying and overcoming emotional imbalances, maintaining psychic self-defense, increasing our self-awareness and self-knowledge, unlocking our potential, and developing our psychic ability.

During the workout, Gabriel will first guide students through a series of foundational exercises, gradually layering on more complex ones as the class progresses. Students learn to exteriorize, absorb, control, donate and use energies using one's will, for unblocking and healing one's self.  They will also apply techniques to develop their sensitivity and perceptions, including a clairvoyance exercise. The techniques practiced help students learn to revitalize their own energetic field, protect themselves energetically, identify external energetic influences, and increase their self-awareness about their energetic condition.  Additionally the approach taken in the workshop is a scientific and clear one, devoid of unnecessary mysticism and obfuscation when approaching the topic of bioenergy and it's use in personal and spiritual development.

After each series of exercises participants will have the opportunity to share feedback with the rest of the workshop participants and compare and contrast perceptions and sensations experienced as a result of the exercises.  Practical examples will be given in the workshop of how they techniques can be used in commons situations we find ourselves encountering in our daily lives.  This workshop brings one closer to experience the energetic and multidimensional reality reported by those who have had experienced near-death experiences and other psychic and spiritual experiences.

The Bioenergy Workout is one of IAC’s most popular workshops and is regularly taught in numerous countries worldwide.  Many people retake this workshop several times due to its effectiveness, practicality, and the positive cleansing and healing effects experienced in the workshop.

Gabriel S also serves on the IANDS Board.

Thursday, August 30, 2-4 PM: Pre-conference workshop with Alex J. Hermosillo"BE THE LIGHT for a Brighter Future" ($35 regular)

Born with the natural gift of healing, Alex was given another gift in 1997 through a near-death experience where he gained wisdom from the beings of Light.  Returning with his healing abilities and his physical and intuitive senses magnified, Alex brings forth the wisdom of Heaven and shares his gift of healing with you. 
 
In this workshop, Alex will explain the different ways in which our bodies and consciousness stores information, and how anyone can release the energies that create emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual pain.  With first-hand experience, Alex shares how he overcame negative thought patterns, past painful events, emotional distress, and physical pain to move beyond a life of non-nurturing relationships and family strife, addictions to alcohol and drugs, and even homelessness.  Alex understands intimately the difficulties that humanity experiences, and today he serves as a conduit of light, love, and healing. 
 
Alex will lead participants through a powerful healing meditation and show you simple, quick and effective exercises that anyone can do.  He will assist you in releasing heartaches, heartbreaks, stresses, worries, physical aches, and pains, as well as fears of the future or grief due to the loss of a loved one. Participants will feel energized, clear, positive having experienced Heaven on Earth, and walk away with tools they can incorporate into their daily lives leading the way to a brighter future for themselves, their loved ones and humanity!

Friday morning session with Dr. Tony Cicoria and Dr. Eben Alexander
  (optional, included in Friday registration)

Attend the Friday morning session only:
  • 8:30 - 10:00 AM - Dr. Tony Cicoria - keynote address

Tony Cicoria, MD, PhD, The "Accidental Pianist": An examination of life's greatest mystery: what happens when you die? A 42-year-old orthopedic surgeon is struck by lightning and experiences both an NDE and OBE. As a result of that, he develops musicophilia, composes music and performs that music. Dr. Cicoria's presentation will include a performance of his music and a presentation of cases representing conventional neurobiology versus unconventional paranormal phenomena in NDE/OBE. 

  • 10:15 - 11:15 AM - Dr. Eben Alexander - plenary speaker

Eben Alexander, MD, FACS, Consciousness and the Near-Death Experience: Beyond 2012. The Hard Problem of Consciousness may be the only conundrum in Science and Philosophy that is arguably beyond human solution, at least from a physicalist viewpoint.  The clues towards its resolution lie within near-death experiences (NDEs), and similar transcendental mystical journeys over millennia. A crucial key involves an NDE through severe bacterial meningitis, a most efficient model for human death due to its robust destruction of human brain, allowing a transcendental NDE in a neuroscientist. Global awakening to the reality of eternal, non-local consciousness begins in 2012.

Global Chant: chant circle featuring many traditions
    (included in registration; open to the public - no charge)
    06:00 PM - 07:00 PM (Arizona Time)  (details)
Friday, August 31, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM  Global Chant – a chant circle featuring many traditions.

A new experience will be available at the IANDS conference this year. Members of the Tucson, AZ group known as Global Chant will lead a session referred to as a chanting circle. Described by many participants as a deeply spiritual experience, the session is open to the public at no charge and is sure to be one of the highlights of this year’s conference.

Global Chant circleGlobal Chant is a growing network of chanting circles. Their mission is to use chanting as a vehicle for global transformation and healing.

They are open to wisdom from all traditions without being linked to any one teaching or ideology. Their sacred chant collection includes chants from the Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Native American, Sikh, and Sufi traditions. The first chapter of Global Chant started in 1996 in Tucson, Arizona and has grown to a weekly event averaging approximately 120 - 130 participants.

The simple format for Global Chant includes:

Global Chant  Intention-Setting. At the beginning of a session, each member dedicates the love, blessings, and healing energy that is to be generated in the circle. We may place the names of specific individuals in our “blessing bowl” to help focus our intention and direct our healing energy.

•  Chanting. On average, we chant 5-8 sacred chants from each session. Words to the chants are provided to each member of the circle, along with percussion instruments to those who wish to play them. The chants serve to generate healing energy and to open each member of the circle to the flow of that energy.

•  Healing Meditation. After the chanting is done, we spend about 10 minutes in silence. During that time, members send out the energy that has been generated in the circle.

•  Closing Prayers. We close the circle by affirming our intention that the energy we generate as a group serve the spiritual needs of all beings.

A typical Global Chant session lasts about an hour. There are no lectures or sermons in Global Chant, and they do not promote any personal, financial, religious, or political agenda. The chanting circle is a sanctuary, which means that it is a place of safety, holiness, and healing.  Participants have reported spiritually transformative and healing effects from attending Global Chant circles.

Some of the most popular chants have been selected from the Global Chant collection for this unique 2012 IANDS conference session.

Saturday morning session with Dannion Brinkley and Frederic Delarue
  (optional, included in Saturday registration)

Attend the Saturday morning session only:
  • 8:30 - 10:00 AM - Dannion Brinkley - keynote speaker

Dannion Brinkley, Mastering Life in this Incredible Time of Shift and Miracles. There is little doubt that we are living in a time of unprecedented change.  Never before has humanity played such a critical and necessary role in helping to shift and elevate mass consciousness. As we all come to understand the multi-dimensional universe we live in, we all become partly responsible for the ascension into higher levels of light and awareness. This is indeed the time long heralded by ancient prophets as the end times.  But what is ending is not the world. What is ending is a world motivated by greed, fueled with intolerance, and driven in chaos. Together, we are birthing the Golden Age of Peace as our planet simultaneously ascends into a higher dimension.

Dannion Brinkley will present concepts for mastering life in this incredible time of shift and miracles.  Dannion's ability to understand and help you achieve empowerment in these wondrous times, comes from being struck by lightning in 1975, dead for 28 minutes. He is considered a "walking miracle," having survived insurmountable odds, including two lightning strikes, open-heart surgery, brain surgery and a massive grand mal seizure. His three near-death experiences have left him with an extraordinary sense of perception.

  • 10:15 - 11:15 AM - Frederic Delarue - plenary speaker

Frederic Delarue, Through the Eyes of Your Heart. This lecture is based on the two NDEs I had at age 12 and age 40, describing the specific journey of being in the coma to the Near-Death Experience. From my experience in the coma, I will talk about what could have led me to choose to go to the Light, what I learned and how I can help people with awareness in that situation. My vision on my life and life in general totally changed after these experiences. Opening people's eyes of their hearts and how they can choose to have a higher perspective and have a better vision of the events of their life if they choose to do a very easy exercise that can allow them to see things from a much higher angle. Frederic will play a selection of his music during the presentation.

Workshop with Frederic Delarue (optional)
"Symphony of Light"
03:30 PM - 05:30 PM (Arizona Time)  (details)
Frederic DelarueSaturday, September 1, 3:30-5:30 PM: Workshop with Frederic Delarue"Symphony of Light" ($25 early, $30 regular)

Frederic will present selections from his Symphony of Light album.
Review of Symphony of Light: In "Symphony of Light" Frederic Delarue not only channels his angelic muse, he explores beautiful classical selections as they appear to him throughout his playing. This is a unique experience and I would recommend that you first listen to "Voyage of the Soul" to truly understand the heart of Frederic Delarue. To fully enjoy this selection you have to be aware that he is "channeling" musical masters and that this is a celebration of classical music. His inspiration includes: "Für Elise," "Moonlight Sonata," "Mozart's Symphony #40." He also draws on inspiration from Strauss, Tchaikovsky and Schubert. His playing embodies a sense of tranquility and in this creation he draws on the past to unveil even more beauty captured in classical music. This is a warm and calming escape that has moments of recognition throughout, but retains Frederic Delarue's own sense of timing and energy. As a pianist/keyboardist he excels at creating musical landscapes filled with light and love.
This album is no exception, but is exceptional in depth and the range of musical possibility.... If you open your heart to Frederic Delarue's creations you will be blessed by a feeling of peace and beauty. You will also gain a sense of a renewed clarity of vision. His playing is truly a gift from celestial realms and he seems to mainly channel the love of God in his heart-filled expressions. After listening to his music I feel as content as a kitten curled up in a warm blanket. It is truly a thing of beauty and this CD in particular takes me back to the days when my mother would play classical music as I fell asleep. I like the cover of this album because it seems to speak of an openness to receiving love/light from God and giving it back to the world. Truly when you hear all of Frederic Delarue's CDs, you know he is connected to the source of love. ~The Rebecca Review

Saskia Moore – Death Symphony: Sounds & Music of the Near-Death Experience
    (included in registration)
    04:30 PM - 05:45 PM (Arizona Time)  (details)
Saturday, September 1, 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM  Saskia Moore – Death Symphony: Sounds & Music of the Near-Death Experience

Sound is understood to be the last sense present moments before death. UK artist Saskia Moore, is documenting and transcribing the actual music and sound experiences people heard when losing or regaining consciousness during a near-death experience.

From the documented collections, she has ascertained the sounds and music heard are like ‘miniature symphonies’ - lyrical, abstract, and beautiful by its very nature.

She is arranging and composing these ‘miniature symphonies’ into one continuous Symphony - DEAD SYMPHONY, a composition from many documented accounts of sounds and music heard during near-death experiences.

The repetition and looping of the unconscious ‘symphonies’ allows audiences to come in and out of this sound world, shifting and changing upon further listening, eliciting new interpretations of the sounds: looping and embedding into the audiences’ personal memories.

Saskia is artist in residence with UK “Sound & Music” Embedded residency. For the residency, she is working with the acclaimed European music ensemble ‘Apartment House’ who will perform DEAD SYMPHONY in the UK, Autumn 2012.

The DEAD SYMPHONY is at the frontier of music and the frontiers of the mind.

Attend the Sunday morning session only:
  • 8:30 - 10:00 AM - Nancy Clark - keynote speaker

Nancy Clark, PhD, 2012: Doorway to a Golden Age. The events happening in the world now have been foretold for thousands of years according to indigenous peoples throughout the planet. The main news for the past twenty five years has focused on the Mayan calendar but it is the only one of seventeen Mayan calendars that mentions December 21, 2012 as the end of time – as we know it. (Other calendars continue for another thousand years.) More recently, science and astronomy are verifying these ancient prophecies by revealing that Earth will be in the very center of our Galaxy on 12/21/12. What will this mean to humanity? The areas of education, politics, religion, finance and government will begin to shift and function from a higher level of consciousness. This will result in a population no longer focused on survival. Instead, humans will be living with much less stress and in loving harmony with mother Earth. Amazing and inspirational new people will come forward to lead the population into a compassionate, caring and interconnected awareness. This date is the beginning of an incredible future for our beloved planet.

  • 10:15 - 11:15 AM - David Bennett - plenary speaker

David Bennett, Experiences in the Light & Visions of the Future. I had two NDEs that showed me my future and during the integration of those experiences I was able to see the potentials of what lies ahead for our world and humanity. I will briefly share the portions of my veridical experiences that dealt with the future and then relate the communication I received about potential struggles and possible solutions. I would like to challenge the audience to look at the bigger picture of the world we live in today, realizing that only a few environmental disasters could push our already stressed social, political and economic structures into a very serious condition. The governments of the world could not support their citizens and communities in the ways we have come to rely on. Yet, the spiritual community embodies the qualities to overcome these challenges. Also, through my connection in social media I have found there is hope in the message that STErs around the world are conveying. I will share the ways given to me to circumvent these dire conditions and begin to deliver support that will reduce the stressors before a crisis occur.

The Bioenergy Workout is a fun yet informative 3-hour practical workshop during which students perform a series of diverse bioenergetic (chi, prana, subtle energy) exercises intended to help them develop their energetic capacities.  Mastering our personal energies is one of the keys to maintaining equilibrium, becoming more self-aware, identifying and overcoming emotional imbalances, maintaining psychic self-defense, increasing our self-awareness and self-knowledge, unlocking our potential, and developing our psychic ability.

During the workout, Gabriel will first guide students through a series of foundational exercises, gradually layering on more complex ones as the class progresses. Students learn to exteriorize, absorb, control, donate and use energies using one's will, for unblocking and healing one's self.  They will also apply techniques to develop their sensitivity and perceptions, including a clairvoyance exercise. The techniques practiced help students learn to revitalize their own energetic field, protect themselves energetically, identify external energetic influences, and increase their self-awareness about their energetic condition.  Additionally the approach taken in the workshop is a scientific and clear one, devoid of unnecessary mysticism and obfuscation when approaching the topic of bioenergy and it's use in personal and spiritual development.

After each series of exercises participants will have the opportunity to share feedback with the rest of the workshop participants and compare and contrast perceptions and sensations experienced as a result of the exercises.  Practical examples will be given in the workshop of how they techniques can be used in commons situations we find ourselves encountering in our daily lives.  This workshop brings one closer to experience the energetic and multidimensional reality reported by those who have had experienced near-death experiences and other psychic and spiritual experiences.

The Bioenergy Workout is one of IAC’s most popular workshops and is regularly taught in numerous countries worldwide.  Many people retake this workshop several times due to its effectiveness, practicality, and the positive cleansing and healing effects experienced in the workshop.

Gabriel S also serves on the IANDS Board.

06:00 PM - 07:00 PM - Global Chant: chant circle featuring many traditions  (details)

Friday, August 31, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Global Chant – a chant circle featuring many traditions.

A new experience will be available at the IANDS conference this year. Members of the Tucson, AZ group known as Global Chant will lead a session referred to as a chanting circle. Described by many participants as a deeply spiritual experience, the session is open to the public at no charge and is sure to be one of the highlights of this year’s conference.

Global Chant circleGlobal Chant is a growing network of chanting circles. Their mission is to use chanting as a vehicle for global transformation and healing.

They are open to wisdom from all traditions without being linked to any one teaching or ideology. Their sacred chant collection includes chants from the Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Native American, Sikh, and Sufi traditions. The first chapter of Global Chant started in 1996 in Tucson, Arizona and has grown to a weekly event averaging approximately 120 - 130 participants.

The simple format for Global Chant includes:

Global Chant Intention-Setting. At the beginning of a session, each member dedicates the love, blessings, and healing energy that is to be generated in the circle. We may place the names of specific individuals in our “blessing bowl” to help focus our intention and direct our healing energy.

• Chanting. On average, we chant 5-8 sacred chants from each session. Words to the chants are provided to each member of the circle, along with percussion instruments to those who wish to play them. The chants serve to generate healing energy and to open each member of the circle to the flow of that energy.

• Healing Meditation. After the chanting is done, we spend about 10 minutes in silence. During that time, members send out the energy that has been generated in the circle.

• Closing Prayers. We close the circle by affirming our intention that the energy we generate as a group serve the spiritual needs of all beings.

A typical Global Chant session lasts about an hour. There are no lectures or sermons in Global Chant, and they do not promote any personal, financial, religious, or political agenda. The chanting circle is a sanctuary, which means that it is a place of safety, holiness, and healing. Participants have reported spiritually transformative and healing effects from attending Global Chant circles.

Some of the most popular chants have been selected from the Global Chant collection for this unique 2012 IANDS conference session.

"Symphony of Light"
(optional)  (details)
Frederic DelarueSaturday, September 1, 3:30-5:30 PM: Workshop with Frederic Delarue"Symphony of Light" ($25 early, $30 regular)

Frederic will present selections from his Symphony of Light album.
Review of Symphony of Light: In "Symphony of Light" Frederic Delarue not only channels his angelic muse, he explores beautiful classical selections as they appear to him throughout his playing. This is a unique experience and I would recommend that you first listen to "Voyage of the Soul" to truly understand the heart of Frederic Delarue. To fully enjoy this selection you have to be aware that he is "channeling" musical masters and that this is a celebration of classical music. His inspiration includes: "Für Elise," "Moonlight Sonata," "Mozart's Symphony #40." He also draws on inspiration from Strauss, Tchaikovsky and Schubert. His playing embodies a sense of tranquility and in this creation he draws on the past to unveil even more beauty captured in classical music. This is a warm and calming escape that has moments of recognition throughout, but retains Frederic Delarue's own sense of timing and energy. As a pianist/keyboardist he excels at creating musical landscapes filled with light and love.
This album is no exception, but is exceptional in depth and the range of musical possibility.... If you open your heart to Frederic Delarue's creations you will be blessed by a feeling of peace and beauty. You will also gain a sense of a renewed clarity of vision. His playing is truly a gift from celestial realms and he seems to mainly channel the love of God in his heart-filled expressions. After listening to his music I feel as content as a kitten curled up in a warm blanket. It is truly a thing of beauty and this CD in particular takes me back to the days when my mother would play classical music as I fell asleep. I like the cover of this album because it seems to speak of an openness to receiving love/light from God and giving it back to the world. Truly when you hear all of Frederic Delarue's CDs, you know he is connected to the source of love. ~The Rebecca Review

04:30 PM - 05:45 PM - Saskia Moore – Death Symphony: Sounds & Music
of the Near-Death Experience
 (details)
Saturday, September 1, 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM  Saskia Moore – Death Symphony: Sounds & Music of the Near-Death Experience

Sound is understood to be the last sense present moments before death. UK artist Saskia Moore, is documenting and transcribing the actual music and sound experiences people heard when losing or regaining consciousness during a near-death experience.

From the documented collections, she has ascertained the sounds and music heard are like ‘miniature symphonies’ - lyrical, abstract, and beautiful by its very nature.

She is arranging and composing these ‘miniature symphonies’ into one continuous Symphony - DEAD SYMPHONY, a composition from many documented accounts of sounds and music heard during near-death experiences.

The repetition and looping of the unconscious ‘symphonies’ allows audiences to come in and out of this sound world, shifting and changing upon further listening, eliciting new interpretations of the sounds: looping and embedding into the audiences’ personal memories.

Saskia is artist in residence with UK “Sound & Music” Embedded residency. For the residency, she is working with the acclaimed European music ensemble ‘Apartment House’ who will perform DEAD SYMPHONY in the UK, Autumn 2012.

The DEAD SYMPHONY is at the frontier of music and the frontiers of the mind.
