Mother Divine’s precious kiss
Brings with love the light of wisdom
And the gift of eternal freedom”

Virginia Beach Friends of the International Association for Near-Death Studies is a local non-profit organization dedicated to the support of those who have had a Near-Death Experience (NDE), Out-of-Body Experience (OBE), or other Spiritually Transformative Experience (STE), as well as those who are interested in learning more about NDEs, OBEs, or STEs.

They fulfill their mission through a monthly speaker meeting, weekly sharing group meetings, maintaining a study and lending library, and posting videos of many of our speakers on the Internet via the web site of Fellowship of the Inner Light.

Peter Panagore of Maine, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, will be the speaker at the next meeting of the Virginia Beach Friends of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (VBIANDS). Rev. Panagore died of hypothermia in 1980 while ice-climbing in Canada. He separated from his physical body and entered a timeless and beautiful Void where he talked with God telepathically. Peter became agonizingly aware of his sins, but God said, I love you. I made you this way. You’re my creature; you’re forgiven.”God added, “In the same way that I love you now, I have always loved you, only you couldn’t feel it. All is well. All has been well. You just don’t know it while on earth.” Peter came away from the experience understanding that God’s love is unconditional.The experience changed Peter’s life, and changed his concepts of God, life, and death. Now he is eager to share his message about life continuing beyond the physical and about the love and greatness of God.

For Saturday’s A.R.E. meeting, a donation of $5 is suggested at the door, but no one will be turned away until capacity of the mini-auditorium is reached.

coreyMany of you have heard me mention Corey Dissin. I try to surround my world with fun, innovative and motivated people. Fitness Motivator Corey Dissin is high on my list of people who help me challenge myself. he has taught me many things most importantly-

“That training the body is important- but if you neglect the spirit you will ultimately fail”

The guy’s got soul…

Train With Corey Owner and Head Fitness Motivator Corey Dissin is proud to announce both he and assistant trainer Pascal Shin, are now the first two MMACA Certified Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Coaches in Pennsylvania and are among the first ten fitness trainers to complete this particular certification IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

The Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association (MMACA) is the MMA certification division of NESTA (National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association), an international fitness association established in 1992 which holds the prestigious NCCA national accreditation for its Personal Fitness Trainer Certification.

The MMACA was developed to bridge the gap between sports conditioning science, Mixed Martial Arts training methods, and direct application for competitive fighting. As part of the MMACA certification process, Corey and Pascal spent over 70 hours of study and completed testing in exercise physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, sports nutrition, sports psychology and conditioning program design (all as it pertains to MMA). The course also covered Olympic weightlifting techniques, powerlifting techniques, bodyweight exercises, kettlebell training and other modalities specific to MMA. Corey and Pascal now have the ability to integrate effective and proven sport-specific conditioning drills for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing, Muay Thai, kick boxing, wrestling, Judo, and others into training routines currently held at the Train With Corey private fitness studio in Parkeford at Longstreth Center.mma

We’re proud to have Corey as one of our initial graduates. We wish him continued success as he puts the MMACA curriculum into action,” says Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO of MMACA. “It is our mission to further legitimize the sport of mixed martial arts, develop high performance athletes, reduce MMA training injuries, and to share and teach the MMA training principles to the general fitness enthusiast.”

“Mixed Martial Arts is hot right now,” says Dissin, “Just look at how the UFC is exploding and how brands like Tapout and Affliction are becoming more and more mainstream. The MMA Conditioning Coach credential now allows us to confidently train our clients like a professional MMA fighter without the risks associated with actual MMA competitions. We’re looking forward to sharing what we learned with our current and future clients.”
