Saturday, May 7


Yvonne Sneeden

The International Association for Near-Death Studies welcomes Yvonne Sneeden to its next meeting.

Yvonne Sneeden is an NDE Experiencer and the IANDS Group Leader for Raleigh, North Carolina. Yvonne's professional career includes working in the foreign diplomatic service in Europe.

Yvonne is currently working in collaboration with Sabine Van Den Bulke, psychotherapist and movement therapist with expertise in NDE Experiencers, and Mary-Jo Bullbrook, Director of the Graduate Program in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in bringing spiritual and emotional support to help Near-Death Experiencers cope with NDE after-effects.

She is also a member of ACISTE (American Center for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences).

Morning Presentation:
Yvonne will share the details of her NDE, which was brought on by deep emotional life crisis, in conjunction with strong medicines for cardiac arrhythmia. This profound and powerful life-changing event, during which Yvonne visited a part of the place she calls "Heaven," transcended her faith and heightened her understanding of Love, Compassion, Goodness, Kindness, and Acceptance of all. Since her profound experience, Yvonne is striving to bring the elements of the NDE into her daily life and in her interaction with others. She feels it is important to share what she learned from her NDE and to bring it together for the common good of all and thus, help each of us live a better life here... in the now.

Saturday, May 7, 2016, 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 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. (Note the new time!)
Yvonne will offer a special treat in her afternoon workshop: a viewing of the preview of the documentary she is co-producing with fellow experiencer Robert Neal Marshall, Back From The Light, focusing on NDE survivors and the after-effects of an NDE. While many people now know about the common elements of NDEs, particularly the journey into the Light, most do not know about the after-effects, which are life-altering and transforming in many ways. This film helps Experiencers realize they are among many, around the world, who had a similar experience and have to live with the remembrance of an event which has no Earthly point of comparison. The film is an exciting journey of exploration of what life is like on a daily basis, following the "return," on an emotional and physiological level, and how spiritual beliefs and relationships are drastically changed. The film was originally previewed at the 2015 IANDS National Conference in San Antonio, Texas, and is now in the final editing process.

A donation of $15 is requested for the workshop.

On Sunday, May 8, Yvonne Sneeden will be the featured speaker at the Joy in Worship Service, speaking on subjects similar to her VBIANDS presentation. The Joy in Worship Service begins at 10:45 a.m., with a meditation beginning at 10:30.

All presentation sessions will be videotaped. Copies on DVD will be available for a $10 donation to VBIANDS plus $2 shipping and handling if needed.

High Energies during a Oneness Blessing in India

Michelle Lanchantin will be leading Oneness Blessings in the Sanctuary. We are blessed to have her wonderful energy here.

The Oneness Blessing is a transfer of divine, intelligent energy.

The Oneness Blessing process works by creating a neurobiological shift in the brain and awakening the energy centers (chakras) in the body.

This shift in consciousness frees you from the suffering created by the mind, balances the body's natural healthy and healing energies, and attunes the brain with the fields of unity, bringing an end to the illusion of apparent separation.

Once initiated, it is a gradual Awakening process that leads you naturally to a lasting state of Oneness, Inner peace, and Well being.
