(PW5) Survival of Consciousness: A Matter of Life and Death Dean Radin, PhD and Julie Beischel, PhD

(PW5) Survival of Consciousness: A Matter of Life and Death—Dean Radin and Julie Beischel Half a dozen classes of scientific evidence exist for some form of survival of consciousness after bodily death; some are more persuasive than others. We will review this evidence and assess the current state of the art. One of the most intriguing classes of survival research focuses on mediums and the information they report. We will examine recent advances in mediumship research methods, and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a demonstration with certified research mediums. We will also suggest ways of advancing our understanding of the perennial question of survival, which is literally a matter of life and death. Julie Beischel, PhD, is director and cofounder of research at the Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential and codirector of the VERITAS Research Program. She received her PhD in pharmacology and toxicology with a minor in microbiology and immunology/immunopathology from the University of Arizona.
