Judy My question is about mirror gazing and the idea that it is a situation, finally, where the paranormal can be predicted and measured and all that good scientific stuff. Has anyone practiced it yet?
Dr. Arthur Hastings of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology took 27 people through a three-hour session to contact a friend or loved one who had died. Half of the participants said they had felt the presence of the person they wanted to contact. While only 50 percent had an experience of contact, all of them reported less grief and more able to manage the feelings associated with their loss. One of the graduate students involved in this research, Dr. Rebecca Merz, (see video link below) will be offering a module in our upcoming prerecorded psychomanteum workshop that will be offered on our platform in mid-summer. We will let everyone know when it is available.

Anon Did anything negative happen to you when you practiced psychomanteum?
Surprisingly, I never did have any negative reports. I think...

There is no way to express the debt of gratitude I have for Raymond Moody, MD, PhD. And that includes all the initials that follow his name. As a medical doctor he has diagnosed my ailments or explained those of others in a simple, patient and complete way that I wish existed in all who practice his profession.
As a PhD in philosophy, Raymond has explained the fine points of the near-death experience so clearly and completely that I have been able to write five books with him (fifteen in total) on the lively subjects contained in the world of near-death studies. Sometimes when I need company I will put on an audio tape from the good doctor and listen again to what he had to say about Greek philosophy, some odd-ball mental disease or, oh yes, our work, which is why I was recording him to begin with.
Being around Raymond is always educational and never confrontational. He’s the perfect teacher and most of all, the perfect friend.
And he’s wacky. He not only wanted to be a comedian, he has even taken the stage to entertain his colleagues, exploring the mysterious world of laughter one joke at a time. And yes, he has a comedy record album too, an item so extinct that he doesn’t even have a copy. If you have one let me know so I can convince him to reissue it. After all, aside from national politics, there isn’t enough humor in this world.
I first met Raymond through our mutual book agent, Nat Sobel. Nat had ushered Life After Life through a difficult publishing process, a time when most publishers would not publish a book about near-death...
