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.

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 would be appreciated but not mandatory.

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.

Anyone wishing to be added to our mailing list may send their request with first and last names, and email address to, or call Robin at (949) 855-1102.

Have a near-death experience or transformative spiritual experience you would be willing to share as a featured speaker at a future meeting? Please send an email to or call Robin at (949) 855-1102.

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.

This Saturday, view the documentary ”Infinity, The Ultimate Trip–Journey Beyond Death”

What happens after we pass from this world? Is there life after this one? Or, do we just disappear forever? These are the questions asked in this powerful and poignant documentary, “Infinity: The Ultimate Trip”. Many may be surprised by the answers.

Featured are noted experts Greg Braden, Dannion Brinkley, Renate Dollinger, Stanislov Grof, John Holland, Dzogchen Ponlop, Robert Thurman, Alberto Villoldo, Neal Walsch, and Brian Weiss, MD using vital and beautiful imagery, along with personal accounts of near-death experiences (NDE), reincarnation and more.

There will be discussion about modern day beliefs, what near-death experiences teach, and how it can impact others.  Bob Siress, who will lead this event, hopes to address your opinions on the distressing NDE’s or just come to discover what those that have died have to say to those who are searching for meaning and understanding of life’s most sought after questions.

The OC International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) welcomes the narration of all spiritually transformative experiences and their life-changing after effects.  All are welcome to  share their experiences, yet there’s no obligation or pressure to.

When:     Saturday, 5/14/11, 1p-4p
Where:    Unity of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave. , Tustin, CA  92780

Woman to talk on intuitive abilities gained from near-death-experience after sustaining severe injuries

In 1983, Jessica Haynes was in a car accident and severely injured with her face crushed, multiple back fractures, feet shattered and more. She says she looked grotesque, and prognosis was very grim. She made a fast, miraculous recovery which she attributes to the near-death-experience (NDE) she experienced.  From the NDE,  she learned ways to create a better, more meaningful life.  She’ll be talking about what she learned, how to create a better life now, and give hope, joy and understanding of the beauty of life so that you can face it, and death, without fear.  She says she has fun stories to share and will take questions from the audience.  Jessica has shared her story for over 20 years including to fortune 500 companies.

Date:   Saturday, 12/11/10, 1pm-4pm

Where:    Unity of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA 92780.  Drive to the rear of the church and park. The talk will be in the first classroom you come to on your right.

Fee:       There’s a $10 donation requested, however, no one will be turned away due to lack of money.

Anyone who’d like to can join this small group for a no-host dinner at nearby Mimi’s Restaurant afterwards to continue the discussion or talk about anything else.  There’s always lots of laughing, good conversation, or just good listening opportunity.
