People who report near-death experiences often find that their lives have changed permanently, with new values and no fear of death.
For centuries, some people who unexpectedly survived a life-threatening event have recounted amazing experiences. Between the time they appeared to die and when they revived, they often encountered places and beings unlike those of everyday life. What should we make of such near-death experiences?
Occasionally, the reports of near-death experiences contain detailed descriptions of what was happening to the experiencer’s body, from a perspective outside the body. The person offering this report may not have had any way of knowing what was happening, yet they may have accurate details. How can we interpret these accounts?
One of the hallmarks of a near-death experience is that afterwards the individual reports no more fear of death. Consequently, they frequently re-evaluate their lives. Not uncommonly, they will change their approach to their livelihood or their relationships to reflect new values. Often, surviving a near death experience helps a person live the rest of their life more fully.
Scientists have long been skeptical about these accounts because they can’t be reliably (or ethically) reproduced, you can’t study them in experiments. But that doesn’t mean you can’t study them at all. Bruce Greyson M.D. has devoted decades to the scientific study of reports of near-death experiences. In addition to collecting these first-hand reports, he used medical records and the observations of family members and close friends to evaluate them. One thing he discovered is that people don’t forget details of their near death experiences. The memories are clear and compelling for decades. Perhaps this helps explain how the transformations they seem to trigger are also very long lasting.
Please join us on Tuesday, November 1 as we welcome Dr. Bruce Greyson, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the UVA School of Medicine, who will be sharing over 4 decades of knowledge gained in his studies of near-death experiences.
Bruce Greyson M.D. was one of the founding members of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), and served for many years on the Board of Directors, as IANDS’ President, Director of Research, and for 27 years, Editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies. Bruce graduated from Cornell University with a major in psychology, received his medical degree from the SUNY Upstate Medical College, and completed his psychiatric residency at the University of Virginia. He practiced and taught psychiatry at the University of Michigan and the University of Connecticut, where he was Clinical Chief of Psychiatry, before returning to the University of Virginia 27 years ago, where he was the Carlson Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Division of Perceptual Studies. Bruce’s near-death research for the past four decades has focused on the aftereffects of the experience, and have resulted in more than 100 presentations to national scientific conferences, 190 publications in academic medical and psychological journals, and several research grants and awards. His most recent book is After: A Doctor Explores What Near-Death Experiences Reveal about Life and Beyond (2021).

Driving Into Infinity: Living With My Brother’s Spirit
In 1983 Paula Lenz had a recurring dream had proved to be a precognitive warning. The sudden, shocking loss of her brother Don that year would come close to completely destroying Paula. She did not know, however, that his death would result in strange occurrences and outreach from him for the rest of her life. Three days after Don’s funeral, Paula had an out-of-body experience with her brother’s spirit while she was driving. The result was a visit to “Infinity” and a change in her consciousness and an understanding of Oneness.
Dr. Janice Holden, Professor at the University of North Texas and a renowned Researcher on Near-Death Experience and current President of IANDS, explains that Paula’s experience is an unusual one and defies exact classification as it has attributes and aftereffects of an After-Death Communication (ADC), Shared Death Experience (SDE) and a Near-Death Experience (NDE). Even the circumstances of her experience are unusual in that she left her body while she was driving her brother’s personal truck!
Paula has been a guest on a number of podcasts since 2018. She was a featured speaker for the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) Conferences in 2018, 2020, and 2022 along with NDE researcher Dr. Janice Holden, University of North Texas. She was also featured on an IANDS Radio interview with Lee Witting.

IANDS Groups offer education and discussion of near-death and related experiences to the general public in a supportive, accessible setting.
IANDS Groups allow freedom of interpretation of NDEs and similar experiences and do not promote any dogma or proselytize any single point of view.
IANDS Affiliated Groups serve near-death experiencers by providing understanding and information. They provide support to NDErs, not therapy.
