What we're about

IANDS Charlotte NC Chapter serves Near-Death Experiencers (NDE'rs) by providing understanding and information to those who have had such experiences. We also offer education and discuss near-death and related experiences -- open to the general public. IANDS Charlotte holds regular meetings for NDE'rs and the general public each month, on the second Saturday of each month from 11:30-1:00pm. We usually bring in NDE speakers that speak about their experiences, but also show afterlife films and have open forums regarding the afterlife. IANDS Charlotte NC allows freedom of interpretation of NDEs and similar experiences and do not proselytize any single point-of-view. They provide support to NDE’rs, not therapy. While fostering the free exchange of ideas through open discussion, this group safeguards the stability of its participants by refraining from demonstrating or teaching techniques which are known to be emotionally hazardous for some individuals.

The International Association of Near-Death Studies, Charlotte NC Chapter

When: Sat., November 9, 2019 Time: 11:30 am - 1:00 pm Where: Heartlight Spiritual Center, 7300 Mallard Creek Rd, Charlotte NC Speaker: Jim Bruton, NBC reporter, adventurer, near-death experiencer Topic: "Trip of a Lifetime" I was test flying an aircraft when it crashed and I almost died. When the surgeons put me into a week-long coma to perform high-risk and lengthy surgeries, I immediately woke up in the In-Between, a timeless, purgatorial looking world where I was given the opportunity to change my future, to see the interconnectedness of all things and become a better person. Upon return, I understood the experience as much from studying quantum physics as mysticism. The experience continues to unfold, from the NDE itself, through the after-effects and now its integration into my life. Speaker Bio: Jim Bruton has been fortunate to realize most of his childhood dreams- watching wildlife television programs as a child, then living in Africa and winning an Emmy for his work with National Geographic Television; dreaming of sci-fi gadgets while reading through Popular Mechanics, then shrinking a television truck into a backpack, transmitting live video from places all over the world previously impossible- including both polar regions, the Titanic and Mt. Everest, as both an adventurer and a Lecturer at Yale University School of Medicine. His love of vintage aircraft translated from gluing models together to the building and flying of two accurate reproductions- one from WW1 and the other from the early 1930s. It was the crash of his second aircraft that nearly killed Jim and propelled him into his NDE. While the surgeons spent a week performing 6-plus hour operations to save his life, Jim went to a place he calls the In-Between, a purgatorial-appearing place where he was given a single mission: to remove bad choices from his future and set the stage for becoming a better person. Though desolate in appearance and difficult to be in, the In-Between was not hostile or threatening. Upon return and with the understanding Jim was given, he realized that the In-Between isn’t a place you go to or come from, it is simply a place you are.

Phone:[masked] / Email: [masked] / www.iands.org Speaker: Tamara Caulder Richardson, AKA, “Southern Belle Medium” - 6x NDE'r, Evidential Psychic Medium, Spiritual Teacher, Minister, Author/Speaker Our speaker, Tamara Caulder Richardson, will be speaking about her six near death experiences (NDE's), the spiritual gifts she received as an aftereffect of them, and will discuss chapters in her book she is writing, “Love from Heaven”. She will also explain what she saw in-between dimensions during her NDE's, and how time is not exactly the same (as here) in different states and how reality shifts based on the dimension you are in. In one of her NDE’s when Tamara was five years old, she spent three days with Jesus while in a coma. During that time, Jesus talked with her about many things as they sat under the "Tree of Life". He explained how in Heaven people there "create at will" by their minds, and how we do that here but do not realize we are creating our own self-created reality. Tamara explains how we are all eternal spiritual beings, how Heaven is real and filled with abundant love (no judgement), and how to bring those precepts of “Heaven to Earth”, here and now in each of our lives. Come join us for this enlightening and inspiring meeting! As Tamara says; "We All Have a Fan Club in Heaven (TM)" -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speaker Bio: Tamara Caulder Richardson was born blessed with many spiritual gifts, however she feels her six near death experiences enhanced her gifts of mediumship, psychic abilities, remote viewing, and channeling Jesus, and the heavenly realm.
