Rev. Peter Panagore speak in person January 27

We are very fortunate to have two-time NDEr Rev. Peter Panagore speak to us in-person, Friday January 27, 2023.

In March of 1980, college senior Peter Panagore went ice climbing on the world-famous Lower Weeping Wall, along the Ice Fields Parkway in Alberta, Canada. His climbing partner was an experienced ice climber, but Panagore was a novice. On their descent, they became trapped on the side of the mountain. As the sun set, he was overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia. He died on the side of that mountain in 1980. In his minutes on the other side, he experienced hell, forgiveness, and unconditional love. His experience in heaven was beautiful and is also the title of his book by that name.

Panagore’s near death experience (NDE) changed his life and resulted in an intense spiritual journey that has continued for decades. It impelled him to pursue a master’s degree at Yale Divinity School focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. His educational background coupled with 30 years of yogic and meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope.

“I have told my story to audiences large and small for a decade now…. My story touches people’s hearts; every time I tell it the audience is gripped and silent…. Heaven is Beautiful is about hope. It is meant to give real hope to the dying, hope to the fearful, hope to the hopeless, hope to the grieving.”

From the words of former IANDS president, Janice Holden, “As a speaker, Peter Panagore is beyond gifted: He is inspired – by the Spirit with which he connected in his near-death experience decades ago and to which he remains connected to this day. His story is compelling not only in its details but also in its implications for every person and for humanity at large. Those who hear him speak are sure to feel touched and to come away with an abundance of food for thought and reflection.”
