Monday, July 27, 2009, 7:30-9:30 PM
BFUU, 1924 Cedar Street, Berkeley
(NOTE: This special meeting will be held in the wheelchair-accessible, first floor BFUU Fellowship Hall on the corner of Cedar and Bonita.)
East Bay IANDS is proud to present one of the world's most famous near-deah experiencer - Mellen-Thomas Benedict, who had a NDE that researcher Kenneth Ring describes as “one of the most remarkable I have encountered in my extensive research on near-death experiences."
Clinically dead for about an hour - he had brain cancer – Mellen returned with a dramatically different view of life. Before his NDE, Mellen had a decidedly negative view of humanity – that people were the “cancer” of the planet, and he was “so disinterested in religion I wasn’t even an atheist.”
But, Mellen says, “The Light explained to me that there is no death; we are immortal beings. We have already been alive forever! I realized that we are part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly.”
And – despite doomsday predictions such as the 2012 phenomenon – Mellon sees a bright future for humanity. People don’t realize how positive even today’s current situation is, he says, and future generations will see us as “heroic.” People in the future will say, “Damn, they were good, they pulled it off,” he laughs.
These are busy times for Mellen. This fall, he’ll publish two books – one the full story of his NDE, the other a “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Afterlife.” … which will tell you what to do when you exit this life. He’s also building a device – based on information from the other side – that he describes as a “battery charger” for the body, using light as the healing element.
You won’t want to miss this meeting! Bring your friends… and bring your questions for a Q&A session following Mellen’s talk.
East Bay IANDS monthly meeting are open to near-death experiencers and non-experiencers alike. A $5-$10 donation is requested to help pay for rent and expenses; no one turned away.
