Rev. Howard Storm

The Chicago International Association for Near-Death Studies, Inc. (IANDS) will present Rev. Howard Storm, who had one of the most significant, negative, near-death experiences on record, on August 8, in Evanston. He is now retired as pastor of Zion United Church of Christ, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and wrote an account of his experience, My Descent into Death, published in 2000.

Teacher, consultant, clinician, author and world authority on sound healing Pat Moffitt Cook, Ph.D., will speak on September 12. She is founder and director of the Open Ear Center, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and an early pioneer in the research and education of cross-cultural sound and music in health care, wellness and education. In addition to published articles and book chapters, Cook is the Pat Moffitt Cook, Ph.D.author and producer of the book and CD entitled Music Healers of Indigenous Cultures: Shaman, Jhankri and Nele as well as other books and CDs.

IANDS conducts monthly meetings from 2 to 5 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month at the NorthShore Evanston Hospital Frank Auditorium for those that have had near-death, out-of-body and other mystical experiences or suffered the loss of a loved one, and for those that want to know about these topics.
