IANDS-Loudoun, a regional chapter of the International
Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) serving northwest Virginia, provides a
public forum for discussing and obtaining research-based information on near-death experiences, after-death communication, and other spiritually-transformative events. IANDS does not advocate any particular secular or religious viewpoint; facilitators for local group meetings promote open, respectful, and balanced dialogue. IANDS-Loudoun
provides a place for people, who've had such experiences or are interested in
such experiences, to share or discuss these experiences with others. Region-based IANDS groups usually best serve people who've had such experiences, are facing
or fear death, are grieving, or are providing care and emotional support in hospice
or hospital settings. Therapy services are not provided at local IANDS meetings.
The facilitator for IANDS-Loudoun is a near-death experiencer who had her first such experience in early childhood. She is familiar with the after-effects of near-death and other spiritually transformative events, both from personal experience and her connection with IANDS. She also works as a hospice volunteer, is reading A Course in Miracles and a wide range of other spiritual texts, and is exploring various spiritual practices. She ran a regional IANDS group in Falls Church, Virginia, for twelve (12) years but has started this new group because she recently re-located to Loudoun County.
