Conference Agenda


Opening Meditation - Connecting with Spirit

We will spend a few minutes connecting with our inner spirit, accessing the stillness, calm, peacefulness and love that we inherently radiate from our own being-ness, to set the intention to rest in calm, peace and goodwill throughout the SAI Conference.

The NDE Zone: Connected by the Light from the Cosmic to the Subatomic

Since the dawn of human history, people have reported Near-Death Experiences, Shared-Death Experiences, Deathbed Visions and After-Death Communication. Mark will show how these occur when a human’s “electromagnetic soul” interfaces with the Afterlife Frequency, “The NDE Zone,” between our material world dimension and the Other Side dimension.

How 20-40,000 Brazilian Spiritists Care for Individuals in Spiritual Emergency

For 100+ years Brazilian Spiritists have offered effective support for individuals having difficulty integrating Spiritually-Transformative Experiences. Spiritists recognize that non-ordinary states may be markers of God-given gifts that need to be understood and harnessed to serve humanity. Healers, mediums, and medical intuitives often begin their journeys after STEs.

EUROTAS President, will describetranse-cognition,” which focuses on stages of thinking in addition to states of consciousness and propose a non-dual, supra-rational way of thinking to help integrate transpersonal experiences (STEs).

The Spiritual Emergence of Mother Earth

We are living in unprecedented and prophetic times. The Mother Earth is in Her ascension process. If we can recognize this as Her spiritual emergence process, we can learn to listen to her and what she needs. The Original Peoples of this earth can help us learn how to awake to these times, and the birthing of The New Dawn.

Kundalini Awakening: Maps of the Journey

Kundalini, the power of boundless Consciousness to know Itself both as finite and infinite, is known by many names in different traditions – Holy Spirit, Goddess, Divine Mother, and Bhagavati Maha Prajnaparamita. Awakening to this boundless power of Universal Consciousness can be profoundly disorienting to the ordinary mind. 

Near-Death Experiencers Panel

Dr. Louise Livingstone PhD, My Speaking Heart. Louise’s spiritual awakening was driven by losing faith in her own heart’s ability to keep her alive, and consequent severe depression. In a moment poised between life and death, Louise’s heart reached out and spoke to her, waking her from a deep slumber to a more expanded experience of life.

Rev. Dr. Norma Edwards D.Div., Awakening To Oneness. In 1966, Norma Edwards died on an operating table and had a life-changing Near-Death Experience. On the other side of the veil she gained profound life-changing insight on love/light, reincarnation, and the Akashic Records.

Don Hoes, Developing Love and Kindness for Higher Consciousness.When 11 years old, Don had an NDE after falling into an icy pond. At 13, he began meditating and immediately felt compelled to continue with a regular practice to go deeper into higher status of consciousness. He believes we are designed to have STEs, and one does not have to be near-death to explore other realms.

Lewis Brown Griggs, 3 Near-Death STEs. March 11, 1977, in a car wreck, Lewis had a NDE ‘Conversation with God’ in the Light. Then later in 1997, Lewis sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury in a rafting accident resulting in an eight-day coma. His most recent dramatic NDE was on a Covid-19 respirator in the ICU.

Spiritually Transformative Experiences/Consciousness Researchers Panel

Monique Rebelle, The Third Chakra Mind And Consciousness Beyond ItMonique will share a new view on Kundalini and chakras, basic information about “Our Multidimensional Consciousness System,” focusing on dimensions of perception. 

Dr. Danny Geren, L.Ac. DAOM, My Personal Journey of Helping Spirits Cross Over Into the Light. Dr. Danny Geren became aware of the presence of spirits/ghosts.  This led him to learn to help them work through their karma to leave the earthly plane, and to his own healing of spirit possessions.

Dr. Mona Sobhani, PhD, My Search for Proof of Spiritual Phenomena. A cognitive neuroscientist tells how life-changing events initiated her transformation from a die-hard materialist into an open-minded spiritual seeker. She shares her search for both scientific and personal “proof” that there’s an unseen dimension to life. 

David Gerrelli, An Objective Scientific Interpretation on Why People Have Distressing NDEs. David Gerrelli did years of technology and data science-based research to analyze thousands of NDE reports. He addresses the questions: Are you destined for Hell? If so, what can you do about it? If you find yourself in Hell, how do you escape?

Música de Roxana Río - Spanish Music by Roxana Río

Muchas personas me conocen por mis canciones. Desde pequeña me dediqué a la música y tengo más de 35 años en este medio.  Pero a principios del 2021 mi vida dió un giro con la creación de un programa de entrevistas sobre espiritualidad llamado “En Sintonía Con Tu Presencia.” Lo mío es unir la música y la espiritualidad en esta nueva era.

Spiritual Emergency Experiencers Panel
