What we're about

We are a non-partisan educational organization seeking to share information and inspiration from the Near Death Experience. Our policies are that we do not promote any person or product, nor do we seek to proselytize. We offer a safe haven to be open and share your personal experiences and questions regarding Near Death Experiences (NDEs) and similar Spiritually Transforming Experiences (STEs).

Central Texas IANDS - NDE Discussion Group is a friends group of the International Association for Near-Death Studies. IANDS is the leading-edge group for the study of NDEs, founded in 1978 by Dr. Raymond Moody, author of "Life After Life," and others. The Central Texas IANDS group meets monthly to discuss Near-Death Experiences, other spiritually transformative experiences (STEs), the integration of such experiences, and the information and lessons learned from those experiences about God, life, and humanity.

Support is available for anyone who has had an NDE and is trying to integrate the experience. Meeting format varies from month to month and can include presentations by those who have experienced NDEs; documentaries, or videos of presentations; or general open discussion and sharing among the group. All are welcome, whether you have had an NDE or STE, if you have suffered the loss of a loved one, or are merely interested in learning more, discussing these topics, and meeting like-minded kindred spirits.
