IANDS, a 501 c3 nonprofit organization, is the premiere informational and networking center in the field of near-death studies, the first organization in the world devoted to exploring near-death and similar experiences. Members are researchers, laypeople, academics, and caregivers; experiencers and non-experiencers; professionals and the general public; from every continent but Antarctic. IANDS’s mission, vision, and current strategic goals can be found here.

Like IANDS itself, the Association’s publications and programs are unique. The quarterly magazine, Vital Signs, and the scholarly, peer-reviewed Journal of Near-Death Studies provide information and intelligent discussion generally not available anywhere else.

Around the US and Canada, 50 or so support groups meet regularly, with more in Europe, Australia, and Asia.  For its periodic conferences, IANDS pulls in top speakers, experiencers, researchers, and interested people for education, sharing, networking, and friendship.
