Are you interested in presenting
at the Afterlife Conference?
Please read the guidelines below...
We are always interested in proposals from experts in hospice care, bereavement, out-of-body experiences, inter-dimensional communication, mediumship, death and afterlife education, grief counseling and end-of-life care. Here's what you'll need to know if you'd like to be considered as a presenter at The Afterlife Conference:
Presentations are categorized according to the following four tracks:
Bereavement: The Next Step
We are constantly discovering non-mainstream approaches to grief, such as mystical rituals, innovative training for counselors, multi-cultural practices and alternative theologies/cosmologies related to birth and death. This material is of particular interest to grief counselors, and also to bereaved individuals who are ready to move toward a deeper metaphysical understanding of death, trauma and loss.
This track explores our innate ability to communicate with the higher realms of consciousness, including psychic development, dream interpretation, meditation, past life regression, mystical experiences, divination, channeling, after-death communication, visions and visitations.
Academic Study, Theological Discourse and Scientific Research
Each year we attract more and more academics who are interested in research about the survival of consciousness after death, including after-death communication, near-death experience, out-of-body experience and mediumship. We are also honored to welcome theologians and religious scholars who have much to teach us about afterlife concepts throughout history.
Like many conferences in this field, we feature well-known mediums who offer both private readings and on-stage demonstrations that include readings for audience members. But our mediums are also teachers. They don’t just give you a fish and feed you for a day; they teach you to fish and give you skills that last lifetimes. Our mediumship workshops offer instruction in how to communicate with the higher realms of consciousness via psychic development exercises, dream work, meditation, past life regression, channeling and after-death communication tools.
Higher Consciousness in Clinical Settings
Thanks to increasing interest in our conference from medical professionals, we've added a new track to address the many ways to work with spirituality in hospitals, hospices and medical facilities. Presentations in this track address practices and processes for conscious dying, ritual, the healing power of animal companions, clinical chaplaincy, physician education about end-of-life care, and more.
There are two types of presentations:
1. A three-hour experiential workshop, which must include at least 50% hands-on, interactive, experiential processes.
2. A 75-minute breakout session- This can be lecture only, but a brief experiential process can be included.
To submit a proposal for either type of session, please use this SUBMISSION FORM.
But first, please read the following guidelines to make sure it's is a good fit for us:
What We Are Looking For
Priority will be given to speakers who are actively involved with email marketing,
social media, publishing, public speaking and other communication outlets.
Applicants without a professional-looking, user-friendly website and headshot will not be considered.
Please include at least one video showing you in action as a speaker/presenter.
If you are able to offer CEs for your presentation, you will be given top priority by our selection committee.
What We Are NOT Looking For
Instead of telling stories about your NDE, the messages you've received from loved ones on the other side, or what you've witnessed as a hospice nurse, show us some rituals or practices that help with the grief journey, teach us about specific practices to assist the dying at the bedside, or lead us in experiential processes that enable us to develop our own skills in those areas.
Please talk and interact with the audience rather than simply reading from notes or from your book. If you have a Power Point presentation, please make sure it contains supportive visuals rather than just words on the screen that repeat what you're saying.
Focus on educational content and useful tools, not just a description of your work or your services. For example, if you are an animal communicator, rather than sharing case histories and amazing stories, teach us how to communicate with our own animal companions.
While we recognize that your NDE, your psychic ability or your personal grief journey can provide inspiration and healing for others, preference is given to teachers with relevant professional training, clinical background or academic credentials in addition to personal experience.
UNNECESSARY SLIDE SHOWS
If your 75-minute lecture does not require visual aids to support your point, you don't need a slide show! We prefer our presenters to rely on their engaging personalities and superb presentation skills to hold the audience's attention. Please do not bring a slide show that contains nothing but text that only re-iterates your words!
