About the Event
Are you curious about what happens after we die but assumed this isn't something scientists have studied? Or maybe you want to catch up on this research?
Scientists have been investigating the afterlife and consciousness beyond the brain for nearly 150 years. There is a solid base of published literature looking at the issue from many angles.
This class provides an overview of some of the most rigorous science suggesting that human consciousness survives death.
This class is for those facing death, those supporting others at the end-of-life, the bereaved and the curious.
In two, two-hour classes we will cover four areas of research that present the most compelling empirical evidence that our consciousness does not die with the body.
Simultaneously, we consider how this research might impact our experience of death and grief and how we support those who going through this transition.
These data demand that we seriously question, if not abandon, the current prevailing paradigm in science - materialism. We explore what a post-materialistic worldview might look like and how we each play a part in the paradigm shift already underway.
- Mediumistic Communication
- Near Death Experiences
- Shared Death Experiences
- A post-materialist worldview
- Continuing Bonds in Bereavement Support
Classes are live, online and recorded.
Saturday January 20th 11am-1pm (ET) and Saturday January 27th 11am-1pm (ET)
Tickets are provided on a sliding scale from $100 to $175.
20% of every ticket sale (at all levels) will be donated to the non-profit The Center for Conscious Living and Dying, a community-supported, end-of-life-care home in Asheville, NC.
