We are pleased to announce that our speakers for Friday, May 24th, will be Robert and Suzanne Mays, two of the editors of a new compilation (July 2016) of NDE stories titled The Self Does Not Die. Haven’t you ever wanted some good NDE stories that give solid evidence that NDEs are what they claim to be and not the result of a dying brain or hallucinations? The Self Does Not Die contains more than 100 of those stories and is the result of the research and contributions from medical personnel and NDE researchers from around the world. In the book you will find the story of a woman who memorized, while unconscious, the 12-digit serial number of a piece of equipment used to save her life. Also documented is the story of an individual who gave a detailed description of the leg amputation of a patient in the next operation theater.
Robert and Suzanne assisted the book’s Dutch authors—Titus Rivas, Anny Dirven, and Rudolf Smit—to translate and add to the original Dutch edition and wrote the Foreword to the English edition. They will touch on how difficult it is to attempt to reason with skeptics whose minds are already made up.
Robert and Suzanne Mays are independent NDE researchers with a focus on the meaning of NDEs for understanding consciousness and the survival of physical death, although neither has had an NDE. Robert and Suzanne will have copies of The Self Does Not Die to sell with all proceeds going directly to support the work of IANDS.
The May 24th 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.
