Description: 

Where does our consciousness go when we die? This online educational program directed toward both health and healing professionals and life-long learners delves into this intriguing but often marginalized topic with empirical rigor, drawing upon ancient beliefs in reincarnation and after-life states as well as cross- disciplinary and cross-cultural research. In 2008-09 we started compiling the footage for this e-learning course, and we are currently finalizing the course, which will launch soon.
