David Riblet

The International Association for Near-Death Studies welcomes David Riblet to its next meeting.

David followed spirit to Virginia Beach in 1983 to further explore the Cayce material, and has spent the last twenty-eight years working with the Cayce products, first with The Heritage Store and now with Nutraceutical Corporation.

David is a dedicated member of the Glad Helpers Prayer Group at the A.R.E., an area he covered as a guest on A.R.E.'s Reflections Radio program. He has presented at the 25th Anniversary Fellowship Conference in Canada, at Edgar Cayce's hometown birthday celebration in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, previously at VBIANDS, and at a program at Chrysalis in the Charlottesville area entitled "Consciously Connecting To Group Consciousness."

David met his partner and soulmate, Cheryl Baer-Bernath in 1996. Together they have presented a program at A.R.E. Camp entitled "Joyfully Following Spirit," and at A.R.E. Charlottesville, a program entitled "The Sphinx of Self: Past Lives, Soul Family, and Your Life's Plan." David is currently writing a book / workbook on the material he is sharing with VBIANDS.

Morning Presentation: "Near Life Experience"
On May 8, 1989 David Riblet died... willingly, and his world forever changed. This tragedy became his greatest blessing. That night, in a life between lives state, he learned the power of prayer in a most extraordinary way. He became a "fused walk-in" with a heightened individual awareness, and of the Soul Family he is a part of. His original intentions for this life, were shown to him, and he was reminded that we are never alone. He experienced an indescribable level of peace. David will share the details of his amazing experience on the other side, the gifts he was given, along with techniques to apply them for more conscious way of living... with no Near Death Experience required! His intention is that your personal Journey through life will be enhanced by this presentation.

Saturday, January 3, 2015, from 10:00 to Noon at Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. (the Association for Research and Enlightenment), 67th Street and Atlantic Avenue, Virginia Beach.

Suggested donation: $10.00 at the door. No one turned away, capacity permitting.

After the meeting, all are invited to a local restaurant to continue the conversation.

Afternoon Workshop from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.: "Healing Circle"
Join David's Healing Circle with other like-hearted souls exploring your gifts and techniques to apply them more consciously to your life. Be ready to explore the possibilities of pre-birth planning and to share your stories. The effects of being not only an individual, but part of a group, will be explained as they apply to turning points in your life. This experience will positively impact your life... forever.

A donation of $15 is requested for the workshop.

On Sunday, January 4 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., David Riblet will give a Presentation / Workshop very similar to the Saturday program described above; so tell your friends and family about it!

The Tao of Communication

This workshop explores how we communicate, verbally and non-verbally. You will learn how to truly listen, and how to make yourself truly heard.

You will experience the "communication dance"—how to move appropriately between feminine / receptive to masculine / assertive modes that facilitate effective dialog.

You will also discover what is blocking you from "heart-bond" communication, and how to listen / talk effectively from your heart.

This is one of the most dynamic and life-changing of all the ILC Workshops!

The cost for the entire three-day experience is $55
