IANDS Utah Meeting for Friday, August 25th, 2017

The speaker for Friday August 25, 2017 will be Russ Horman. On the evening of October 8, 2001 Russ’s life changed profoundly after being targeted in a home invasion robbery. Russ had been setup by the girl he was dating at that time for the home invasion. During the robbery Russ was shot four times by the two intruders, two times after confronting one of the intruders and attempting to wrestle gun from him, shot two more times by the second intruder as Russ was struggling with the first intruder.

After the intruders fled Russ’s home police medical personnel responded, Russ was transported to the hospital where he was immediately prepped and taken into surgery. As his life was slipping away due to the multiple gunshots, Russ experienced a profound near-death experience which completely changed the course of his life and provided answers.  Being shot and the subsequent NDE in his words was “the best thing that ever happened to me”.

There will be a limited number of Russ’ book, “Phases of Existence and Things I Learned When I was Dead” available for sale at the end of the meeting. Copies may also be purchased from Amazon.

IANDS Meeting for Friday, July 28th, 2017

Gifts from a Traumatic Brain Injury

In 2011, a motorcycle accident left Greg Nordfeldt with a traumatic brain injury and multiple broken bones.  When he rejoined the world after 11 days in and out of a coma and nearly a month of memory loss, Greg found himself radically changed.  But Greg’s story isn’t one of loss and pain.  Instead it’s a story of incredible gain.  When he recovered full consciousness, Greg had a newfound focus on love, connection, and gratitude–a focus he was inspired to bring to his relationships at home and work.  During his coma Greg did not experience a complete void of memory.  We will discover what Greg learned from his brush with death.

The July 28th IANDS meeting will begin at 7PM in the Salt Lake County Commission hearing room in the north building of the County Government Center located at 2001 South State, SLC.   We meet the fourth Friday of each month except December.  Bring a friend as meetings are free of charge.

IANDS Utah Meeting for Friday, June 23rd, 2017

We are pleased to announce that our speaker for June is Sally Firmage.  In September of 2013 Sally, while hiking, experienced a life-threatening electrolyte imbalance and ended up in the hospital very near death.  As she came close to death, she witnessed her Light Body unravel from her physical body. She found herself in a formless black spaciousness and later observed as the same chords of light re-weaved themselves back into her body.

The most transformational aspects of her experience are the insights gained from the deeper meaning of coming so close to death. The experience is a blessing which can raise intuition, perception and unleash hidden gifts and understanding. She now understands how deeply the world’s healing traditions complement one another and that self-love and forgiveness are forces which can heal the world.
Sally is an acupuncturist, massage school instructor and aspiring author. She also teaches yoga to cognitively impaired adults.  She holds a BA in psychology from the University of Utah and a master’s degree in Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University in Sant Cruz, CA.

The June 23rd IANDS meeting will begin at 7PM in the Salt Lake County Commission hearing room in the north building of the County Government Center located at 2001 South State, SLC.   We meet the fourth Friday of each month except December.  Bring a friend as meetings are free of charge.
