Consciousness & Near-Death Experiences
Our Last Sundays Science & Buddhism discussion in October will be on consciousness and Near-Death Experiences (NDE.) Are Near Death Experiences real, or the echo of a nervous system shutting down?
The NDE is a reported phenomenon occurring in clinically "dead" conditions from which the patient recovers. They can have some stereotypic features, such as seeing "light" and "divine beings." We'll discuss the underlying potential physiology and its implications for consciousness. We will also explore how the Dharma relates to the topic.
Gary Heit Ph.D., M.D., Chief Scientist at Vorso Corporation, will lead our discussion. A reading list and additional resources will follow shortly.
As always, the discussion will be quite open and informal with all invited to participate.
All are welcome. No prior experience with science, Buddhism, or meditation is necessary. Hope to see you there!
Sunday Program: We also invite you to join us that Sunday morning for our 10 am Sunday Program, Dharma Talk, and social lunch, ahead of our 2 pm Science & Buddhism session.
