Does Consciousness Continue After Death?
Join Sue Brayne as she discusses how looking at life experiences provides evidence that consciousness quickens during the last days of life. Love appears to play a central role in helping people to let go.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Your existential understanding of death and dying
- How consciousness quickens during the dying process
- The way love rolls in at the end of life
