About Seattle International Association for Near-Death Studies
Seattle IANDS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity operating under the guidance of an all-volunteer Board of Directors.
We are the oldest support group associated with the International Association for Near-Death Studies. We have been meeting monthly since June 1982. We gather to hear near-death experiencers (NDErs) share their stories.
Seattle IANDS began when a few NDErs gathered to not only share their experiences, but also help each other cope with their expanded senses of reality. Today our attendees consist of NDEers, people who have had Spiritual Transformative Experiences (STE), hospice and healthcare workers, and others interested in the near-death experience.
We publish NDE newsletters every two months with an account of one near-death experience and related information. These NDE newsletter subscriptions are distributed across the United States. More information is on the "Newsletter" page.
