2 pm NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE: What Medical Professionals Need to Know (2013) - This groundbreaking video provides medical professionals with essential training about Near-Death Experiences, including a response protocol to follow when dealing with patients who have had NDEs. Unfortunately, these patients have been ignored, misdiagnosed, or over-medicated. This program is suitable for doctors, nurses, chaplains, and other caregivers. It may be of interest to NDErs, as well as their families and friends. (30 min)
2:30 pm THE DAY I DIED (2002) - A BBC documentary about NDEs. One of the best NDE documentaries available, it includes interviews of some of the top scientific researchers: Dr. Peter Fenwick, Pim Von Lommel, and Dr. Bruce Greyson, as well as people who have had this experience. (45 min)
3:15 pm RESURRECTION (1980) - A stunning theatrical presentation of one woman’s Near-Death Experience and resulting healing ability. Starring Ellen Burstyn and Sam Shepard. Ellen Burstyn delivers a tour-de-force performance as a woman who experiences clinical death and returns to life with the amazing ability to heal others. While most people simply accept her gift, her lover (Sam Shepard) becomes mentally unbalanced and dangerous because she does not place the healings within a religious context. (104 min)

In May, 2008, on our 10th Anniversary, Chicago IANDS announced the formation of a new not-for-profit organization, iSee (International Society for Extraordinary Experiences). This new organization will formally honor ALL spiritual and mystical experiences, creating a place where people can come together to discuss and learn about such experiences. More information will be forthcoming about this organization in the future. For the present time, both Chicago IANDS and iSee will be co-presenting our monthly meetings.
