IANDS Presents: NDE Radio with Lee Witting
The International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) presents
NDE RADIO, a weekly exploration of near-death experiences and similar
encounters with the other side, hosted by Lee Witting.
The International Association for Near-Death Studies, the world??s
pioneer organization in exploring what happens when the soul leaves the
body, is now expanding it??s educational efforts through broadcasting
with NDE RADIO.
Host Lee Witting is himself a near-death experiencer with a doctor of
ministry degree in NDE studies. NDE RADIO airs live every Monday at
11:00 AM Eastern here on TalkZone.
The show features first-hand stories of near-death and out-of-body
experiences, interviews with guests who have experienced the other side,
and with researchers of the NDE and other ??mystical?? phenomena. Shows
will offer the chance for audience call-ins, and each show will be
archived for listening at any time.
For further information about the work of IANDS, its remarkable history,

NDE and Theology (Listen on website ?? Download MP3)
This week's special guest is Nancy Evans Bush, author of Dancing Past
The Dark, and we are discussing religion, theology and NDE. Those who
have had an NDE, the experience often leaves them questioning their
religious beliefs. Even atheists. They've seen what lies beyond, and
they often need to ask "what should I do with this knowledge?"

About Lee Witting
Lee-WittingLee Witting serves as a chaplain at a major Maine hospital,
pastors the Union Street Brick Church in Bangor, Maine, and is
publications director for the International Association for Near-Death
Studies (IANDS). His interest in NDEs began as a child, when he drowned
in a lake near Branchville, NJ.
In his Fall, 2010 editorial in the IANDS?? quarterly, Vital Signs, Lee
wrote, ??My body was under water, but I opted out of the tunnel and the
light for a perch high in a tree, watching as my mother, who??d heard me
scream, ran from the cottage, dived in, and dragged my lifeless body
from the water. Remarkably, she threw me face down over a log and pumped
on my back (as she told me later, to get the water out of my lungs). In
the process, the log did an upside-down CPR, compressing my heart, and
got me going again. And then I was back in my body.??
Lee went through Presbyterian Sunday School before being raised
Catholic, when his mother converted to that religion. At Columbia
University he minored in Eastern Studies, and developed a deep interest
in Buddhism. After college he worked two jobs -- primarily for New York
City??s Dept. of Welfare as a caseworker in Harlem.
With the money they saved, Lee, his wife and young son boarded a coal
freighter and spent nine months living in a VW camper, touring
Romanesque and Gothic churches in Europe and following crusader routes
through Yugoslavia, Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon -- winding up in
Jerusalem before returning to Europe and the U.S.
Back in the US, Lee worked as an editor of one academic and three
business publications in Philadelphia. As members of the Society of
Friends, the family marched in Washington DC and New York, protesting
the Vietnam War and supporting Civil Rights. In 1973, the family moved
to an old, abandoned farmhouse in coastal Maine. While restoring the
farm, they raised goats, pigs and chickens, and sold their home-grown
vegetables at a roadside stand. Lee helped start and edit an organic
gardening magazine for Maine called Farmstead, and later, to supplement
his income, opened a real estate office and published/edited a weekly
newspaper, The Castine Patriot. During that time, he also served as a
volunteer EMT on the local ambulance corp.
Lee earned an MA degree in theater and creative writing at the
University of Maine, before earning a master of divinity degree at
Bangor Theological Seminary. In 1998, Lee and his second wife, Charlene,
were able to purchase an historic Bangor church and convert it to a
working church theater, where open mic nights and several plays,
including an annual Passion Play, are produced by Charlene each year.
While working as hospital chaplain, he returned to the seminary
part-time to earn a doctorate in near-death studies in 2010.
Lee??s radio experience began at Columbia University??s WKCR-FM in New
York, and was recently continued in a six-year run of ??Earthtones,?? a
WERU-FM community radio program he hosted, which was devoted to Native
American and Eastern religious chant -- along with weekly NDE stories
from the files of IANDS.
Lee Witting is excited to be helping establish a new direction in IANDS??
outreach with NDE RADIO.
