The Next World: Extraordinary Experiences of the Afterlife

Broadcast on November 01, 2022
With Gregory Shushan, PhD
Hosted by Lisa Bonnice

Gregory Shushan, PhD, explores the relationships between near-death experiences, shamanism, reincarnation memories, psychic mediumship, and beliefs in life after death. He will show how throughout history and around the world, these kinds of extraordinary experiences have influenced ideas about the afterlife in various ways.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • A glimpse into the afterlife experiences and beliefs of people around the world and throughout history
  • The realization that religious dogmas about the afterlife are not supported by near-death and related experiences
  • An understanding of the interplay between religious experiences and religious beliefs, psychology, and culture
