Ellyn Dye

The International Association for Near-Death Studies welcomes Ellyn Dye to its next meeting.

Ellyn Dye is an Author, Intuitive Coach, Metaphysical Teacher, and Public Speaker, as well as a leader of the Maryland Friends of IANDS group.

Ellyn publishes a free monthly newsletter, Tunnel Vision. She is the author of the metaphysical fantasy novel, The Search for the Crystal Key—an adventure about believing in yourself, and the power of Love, with information she learned during her NDE in 1985.

She is currently writing a new book, Creating Heaven on Earth... One Soul at a Time; A How-To Manual from the Perspective of a Near-Death Experience.

Morning Presentation:
Ellyn Traveled Through the Famous Tunnel of Light and Came Back to Tell You About It!

As a result of a head-on collision in 1985, Ellyn Dye traveled through the famous Tunnel of Light in a classic Near-Death Experience, where she met with a Council of Beings of Light—wise and humorous Guardians of Humanity—who shared with her the meaning of life and the secrets of the Ages.

Ellyn will share highlights of what she experienced in the Light, what she learned about God, Love, and humanity, and why we are all here, now. Ellyn's presentations are uplifting and empowering, as she reminds us of Who We Really Are.

Saturday, October 18, 2014, 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.
"Creating Heaven on Earth... One Soul at a Time." We are in amazing, challenging, and chaotic times! When we look at events in the world, it may not look like we are in the middle of a large transformational process to literally create Heaven on Earth out of the world of extreme duality that we've been playing in. The hippies were right: This really is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius! So what does that mean?

A donation of $15 is requested for the workshop.

On Sunday, October 19 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Ellyn Dye will give a Presentation / Workshop very similar to the Saturday program described above; so tell your friends and family about it! The workshop is located at the One-Eleven Art Gallery, 111 Pennsylvania Avenue, Norfolk. Space is limited. For reservations, please contact Suzanne Watson at 620-4766. Admission $15.

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.

Defending Your Life (1991):
Starring Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep, Rip Torn, Lee Grant
112 minutes

In an afterlife resembling the present-day US, people must prove their worth by showing in court how they have demonstrated courage.

Yuppie Daniel Miller is killed in a car accident and goes to Judgment City, a waiting room for the afterlife.

During the day, he must prove in a courtroom-style process that he successfully overcame his fears (a difficult task, given the pitiful life we are shown).

At night, he falls in love with Julia, the only other young person in town. Nights are a time of hedonistic pleasure, since you can (for example) eat all you want without getting fat.
