Workshop: Researching Life After Death: The Last Frontier
Gary E. R. Schwartz, Ph.D. and Linda G. S. Russek, Ph.D
This workshop reviews the latest research from our laboratory on the possibility of survival of consciousness after death. Research includes (1) "from here to there and back again" - a study involving two mediums and four "departed hypothesized coinvestigators", (2) research using energy cardiology measures, involving 5 members of our "dream team" of superstar mediums, and (3) possible spirit communication using random event generator-type devices. Implications for spirit assisted medicine and what Linda Russek calls "soul family therapy" are discussed.
1. Explain how research involves collaboration between here and there.
2. Explain how EEG and ECG measures can be used to explore alternative hypotheses.
3. Consider implications for clinical work in psychotherapy and energy medicine
