Afterlife Conferences explore Death and beyond


May 17-18 — Prominent docs probing existence of life after death at Wisconsin conference

New York Times bestselling author Raymond Moody, M.D., one of the world’s foremost researchers on life after death and near death experiences, will join two other health professionals as keynote speakers on the afterlife at the Wisconsin Healing Conference on May 17-18 in Spooner, Wisconsin.

Also speaking will be Vernon Sylvest, M.D., a prominent pathologist, and Gary R. Beaver, M.A., a psychologist with a Twin Cities practice where he helps the public remove lingering grief, sadness and trauma through Induced After-Death Communication.

The Wisconsin Healing Conference is from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 17-18 at The Spooner Ice House, 301 Walnut Street. Doors open at 8 a.m. Admission is $75 per day purchased online at, or $95 per day at the door.

The keynote speakers will proclaim that life after death is real. Dr. Moody’s bestselling book Life after Life started a tidal wave of discussion on the subject and encouraged people to come out of the closet about amazing personal experiences related to the continuation of life after death. Dr. Moody has been featured on The CBS Morning News, NBC News, and Oprah Winfrey.

Dr. Sylvest, author of The End of fear, which recounts his experiences and research into the subject of life after death and spiritual healing, will present the history, medical science and physics behind the resurrection of Jesus, as well as the healing of chronic diseases for which medical science has no cure.

Beaver, who was recently featured in an Edge interview (March 2014), is one of about 400 people who have been trained worldwide to help others with Induced After-Death Communication. It helps clear prolonged sadness and trauma for people who are stuck in their grief and are not able to get out of it. Spontaneous communication with departed loved ones and pets has been reported in numerous cases during this two-day therapy.

All the speakers will describe their research (and their experiences with patients) to verify the phenomenon of life after death.

June 5-8 — Renowned experts talk conscious dying and conscious grieving in Portland

You are getting older. Like it or not, Woody Allen was right: “There is no getting out of here alive.” You might as well get used to the idea now. In fact, making plans for the end of life and beyond could be the greatest gift you can give to yourself and those around you.

The Afterlife Conference, which will take place June 5-8 in Portland, Oregon, brings together people from all over the world to hear renowned experts talk on End-of-Life Care, Near-Death Experience, Conscious Dying and Conscious Grieving.

“The workshops and presentations cover everything from scientific research on near-death experience and after-death communication, to mystical and sociological practices for assisting the dying in their journeys,” said Terri Daniel, founder of the conference.
Among the conference’s featured presenters are: Dr. Eben Alexander, recognized worldwide for his best-selling book, Proof of Heaven, which chronicles his journey from skeptic to spiritualist as the result of his own near-death experience; and Dr. Raymond Moody, author of the bestselling book, Life After Life, the leading pioneer and researcher in the field, and the man who coined the term “near-death experience.”
“It is inspiring,” Dr. Moody said, “to see how these different perspectives lead to the same place…an awareness of the survival of consciousness after death. The bereaved find peace and healing. The spiritual seekers find validation for their mystical experiences. And the scientific researchers find an eager audience for their work.”
Terri Daniel noted that “understanding how consciousness continues after the death of the body is a key to providing wisdom and comfort and to helping our entire culture move past its fear of death.”
She is an ordained interfaith minister, clinical chaplain and intuitive counselor who helps dying and grieving individuals to discover a more spiritually spacious understanding of death and beyond. She also is the author of three books on death and the afterlife:  A Swan in Heaven: Conversations  Between Two Worlds; Embracing Death: A New Look at Grief, Gratitude and God; and Turning the Corner on Grief Street: How Trauma and Loss Can Transform Us
