Pre-death visions & communication in the Hospice setting

This Saturday, 1/14/12, from 1 pm-4pm, there will be a talk in Tustin given by Patti Darcey, the Director of Volunteer Services with Heartland Hospice.  When asked if any of their hospice clients are observed having communication or a vision not seen or heard by others in the room, her answer was “All the time”.

There will be lots of time for Q & A, or sharing.

The talk is hosted by the OC chapter of the International Alliance for Near-Death Studies (IANDS).  We meet to talk about and share near-death experiences, questions about death and dying, and the latest information from NDE research.  IANDS groups such as ours can be found in communities around the world.

MEETING DETAILS
We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month, from 1pm-4pm at Unity Church of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA.  Drive to the back of the church, turn left, and park. We meet in the first room you come to.

  • Each meeting contains a break half-way through, and includes questions and answers, and discussion. There is no pressure to participate in a discussion.
  • Not everyone who attends has had a near-death or spiritually transformative experience. Everyone has their own reason why this group is of interest, and all are welcome.
  • We encourage a donation of $10 per person for our expenses, but no one is turned away.
  • An email RSVP for this meeting at OC-Iands@mail.com would be appreciated but not mandatory.

NO-HOST DINNER FOLLOWS MEETING
It’s often a fun extension of the meeting to meet for dinner afterwards.  All interested are welcome.  We meet at approximately 4:20 pm at Mimi’s Café, 17231 17th St., Tustin, (714) 544-5522.  Directions:  Leaving the church parking lot, turn right on Prospect.  At 17th Street, turn Left.  Get in right hand lane.  A few blocks down, just before the 55 freeway, you’ll see Mimi’s on the right.

Coming up in February
You won’t want to miss guest speaker and author, David Bennett, who was caught in a violent storm off the California coast where he drowned and had a near-death experience.  Later in time, he miraculously survived stage IV lung and bone cancer.  For February only, the date we normally meet, the 2nd Saturday of the month, has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 18th, same time, 1-4pm and place.  Mark your calendars now.

Animal Communicator to Speak at Event. Bring Your Questions!

The OC chapter of the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS) is hosting speaker Frances W Greenspan, an animal communicator.   She speaks with animals both here and to those who have crossed over by tuning in telepathically to their spirit/higher self to ask questions and receive their answers.

She’ll be speaking on the death experience of animals, their afterlife, and how it compares to that of humans.

Frances has appeared on numerous pet related radio shows, in print and online magazines, and is author of the book “What Do Your Pets Want You to Know? My Story of Animal Communication”.

She’s also an artist, specializing in illustrations of animals.  She was recognized by Cat Fancy Magazine as one of the most gifted animal artists in the world.

Feel free to invite all your pet owner friends and everyone else who has an interest in this topic or near-death experiences to join us.

This is an ever-growing area of interest according to the producer of Fox LA News.  At OC IANDS’ meeting last month, they were there filming segments for a piece on near-death experiences.  It will be televised Monday, October 10th, 2011 during the 10pm news hour.  The story will also be on their website after it plays.

Q & A will follow her talk.  If you have questions that are not necessarily animal related, but concerning near-death or any spiritually transformative experience, you’re welcome to ask those as well.  Group members with first hand knowledge of these kinds of experiences may join in to help answer those questions.

Afterwards, everyone is invited to a no-host dinner beginning 4:20 pm at Mimi’s Café, 17231 17th St., Tustin, CA. The restaurant phone number is 714-544-5522.

We encourage a donation of $10 per person for our expenses, but no one is turned away.  RSVP at robinbarr1@cox.net.

OC IANDS meets the 2nd Saturday of each month, from 1pm-4pm at Unity Church of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA. Drive to the back of the church, turn left, and park.  The first room you come to will be the classroom where we meet.  If you get lost, call Robin at 949-290-1949.
