Please join me for this free online event with the Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre, Saturday August 12th, 6pm-8pm UK, 1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific. I'll be talking about my books "Near-Death Experience in Indigenous Religions," "The Next World: Extraordinary Experiences of the Afterlife," and those that are on the horizon.... Be sure to RSVP in order to be sent a Zoom link: https://www.studyspiritualexperiences.org/events.html
In this talk, award-winning author Gregory Shushan, PhD, will review his decades-long research into the historical, cultural, and religious dimensions of near-death experiences. Shushan reveals the symbiotic relationship between such experiences and beliefs about an afterlife, exploring and explaining both differences and similarities across cultures. As parallels, mediumistic descriptions of the afterlife are also considered, alongside memories of between-life states in children who claim to remember past lives. In addition to being a neglected area in the history of religions, Shushan's findings have profound implications for the possibility of an actual afterlife and what it could be like, and also present challenges to materialist paradigms.
