Workshop

Beyond Life

The Science of Consciousness & the Afterlife

Sep 13 - Sep 15 2019 Rhinebeck, NY
Explore scientific evidence that consciousness continues beyond bodily death and experience after-death communication practices with Dr. Julie Beischel and a panel of leading experts.

Does consciousness have the capacity to survive the death of the brain and body? Explore the research and scientific evidence that says it does in this workshop with leading experts in the field, Julie Beischel, Mark Boccuzzi, Leslie Kean, and Laura Lynne Jackson.

See how the effects of consciousness are detected on electronic equipment, on other people, and on the acquisition of psychic information. Then examine scientific studies of near-death experiences, end-of-life experiences, experiences of communication with the deceased, and children's past life memories.

Gain tips for making the most of a reading with a psychic medium and practice during group readings by a laboratory-certified medium. Learn about the four types of communication with the deceased, including dream experiences and using the Meaningful Messages card deck. Attain techniques for improving your own after-death communication skills.

Return home with a deeper understanding of the infinite nature of consciousness and specific methods that may allow for continued relationships with your deceased loved ones.

More Information

This workshop is appropriate for those who have experienced the death of someone close to them, are pondering what might happen at the end of life, or are generally contemplating the mysteries of consciousness. No prior experience or knowledge is needed.

This workshop is for education and personal/spiritual growth only; it is not intended to be a substitute for, nor should it take the place of, diagnosis or treatment from a licensed professional.

Because the communication that a medium experiences is outside her control, there is no way to guarantee that any or all participants will receive messages.

Please come equipped with an open mind and leave all expectations (especially those gained from TV shows portraying psychic mediums and/or the paranormal) behind. Inviting your deceased loved ones to join you at the workshop should also be considered if relevant.

Participants may experience strong emotions regarding deceased loved ones. During the workshop they may hear information allegedly from a deceased friend or family member. This may cause emotional pain regarding memories of the person and his/her death. Also, participants may experience disappointment or frustration during/after a reading or after-death communication exercises.

Teachers are subject to change.
