Daniel Flynn

The International Association for Near-Death Studies welcomes Daniel Flynn to its next meeting.

Daniel Flynn is a lawyer, mystical teacher, and author of "Love Life 101: What Near-Death Experiences and the Mystics Teach Us about Love, Romance, and the School of Life."

His presentation will discuss how "Love Life 101" came to be written and what it is intended to accomplish. It will highlight some key insights that Near-Death Experiences and the mystical perspective provide about romantic relationships.

Daniel will explain how increased awareness of this bigger picture assists us in making informed choices in our pursuit of meaningful relationships—in the same way that knowing someone is attracted to you makes it easier to ask for a date.

Daniel Flynn is a graduate of Columbia Law School with a thirty-three year career in litigation and environmental law. More importantly, he is a long-term student of the mystical perspective of reality, drawing on sources such as the Edgar Cayce readings, the Kabballah, A Course in Miracles, Sufism, Buddhism, and Native American spirituality.

He has taught classes on the mystical perspective, including topics such as Near-Death Experiences, reincarnation, communications with loved ones who have passed on, and the effect of the mind on the reality we experience. Always, the focus of his classes has been on the practical aspect of these subjects: How does this awareness of the mystical side of reality enable us to make more informed choices and pursue a more meaningful life?

Saturday, April 19, 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: $5.00 at the door. No one turned away, capacity permitting.

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

From 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Daniel will give a workshop.

Afternoon Workshop: The workshop will include designed exercises based on the bigger picture concept described in "Love Life 101" that help participants:

  • tap the group's collective wisdom about romantic relationships
  • discern inner guidance that exposes patterns involved in our romantic relationships, what they mean for our pursuit of meaningful relationships, and how they may help us recognize our beshert (our "meant to be" life partner)

A donation of $20 is requested for the workshop.

On Sunday, April 20 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., Daniel Flynn 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 $20.
