The purpose of IANDS Down Under is to explore near-death and other extraordinary experiences. We're an official group of IANDS (International Association for Near-Death Studies). Our intention is to provide a safe and nourishing space for meaningful dialogue on NDEs and other extraordinary experiences.
Our group is open to people who've had a near-death or other extraordinary experience, as well as their loved ones, professionals who encounter this population, and people with a sincere interest.
IANDS Down Under is facilitated by Kirsty Salisbury (Auckland) & Dr. Nicole Gruel (Sydney)
We will have regular meet ups and online discussions.

IANDS members from around the world have diverse views on many topics. From its inception, IANDS as an organisation is neutral, and does not align itself with any particular social, religious, or political ideology. We promote respectful dialogue.

Our next event is May 30th, where Sheryl Gottschall will be sharing about Death – A Journey to Elsewhere.
