    The Past Lives Podcast Extra Ep5 – Sandi’s NDEs part 3

    This is the third of the extra episodes looking into the Near Death Experiences of Sandi T. Sandi put her three NDEs on the NDERF website and I found her experiences so interesting and informative I thought I would put them out as extra episodes.







    Each Episode will feature one of her NDEs and then go into the questionaire that Sandi filled in regarding the NDEs. Her answers are facinating.







    There is also an interesting description Sandi put on the website describing her attempts to re-experience NDEs though drugs.







    I have had permission from Jody Long at NDERF.org and from Sandi to record these episodes.

    The Past Lives Podcast Ep150 – Marjorie Woollacott

    The Past Lives Podcast Ep150 – Marjorie Woollacott

    This week I am talking to Marjorie Woollacott about her book Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind. We talk about NDEs and more.







    As a neuroscientist, Marjorie Woollacott had no doubts that the brain was a purely physical entity controlled by chemicals and electrical pulses. When she experimented with meditation for the first time, however, her entire world changed. Woollacott’s journey through years of meditation has made her question the reality she built her career upon and has forced her to ask what human consciousness really is. Infinite Awareness pairs Woollacott’s research as a neuroscientist with her self-revelations about the mind’s spiritual power. Between the scientific and spiritual worlds, she breaks open the definition of human consciousness to investigate the existence of a non-physical and infinitely powerful mind.







    Marjorie Hines Woollacott, PhD, has been a neuroscience professor at the University of Oregon for more than three decades and a meditator for almost four. She also has a master’s degree in Asian studies, which she began on a teaching sabbatical and completed at the UO while a full-time professor. Her master’s thesis was the foundation for her latest book, Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind, which is both a scientist’s memoir and a research survey on human consciousness. Dr. Woollacott is currently the president of the Academy for the Advancement of Postmaterialist Sciences (AAPS) and the Research Director for the International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS).







    Woollacott’s own research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, and includes both research in neuroscience and testing the efficacy of alternative forms of therapy such as tai chi and meditation for improving both attention and balance in adults. She also has published studies on sensory contributions to music performance, in collaboration with Steven Pologe, professor of cello performance in the UO School of Music, and studies on attentional network changes associated with meditation practice.







    With Dr. Anne Shumway-Cooke, Woollacott has coauthored a popular textbook for health professionals, Motor Control: Theory and Practical Applications, in its fifth edition, and she has written more than 200 peer-reviewed research articles and book chapters. She has been the keynote speaker at conferences in North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia, and has taught courses not only in neuroscience and rehabilitation medicine but also in meditation, hatha yoga, and alternative and complementary medicine. Her undergraduate work and doctoral studies were in neuroscience at the University of Southern California.

    The Past Lives Podcast Ep148 – Whitley Strieber

    The Past Lives Podcast Ep148 – Whitley Strieber

    This week I am talking to Whitley Strieber about his book 'The Afterlife Revolution'.







    The joyous news of the Afterlife Revolution is that there is a soul and we do live on. When she died in 2015, Anne Strieber set about proving this to her beloved husband Whitley. She did this by following a secret plan that they had worked out in the 1990s. The first one to die would not contact the other directly at first, but through friends.







    Not two hours after she died, Anne contacted a friend, Belle Fuller. And that was just the beginning of this wonderful story. It is so convincing that famed afterlife researcher Dr. Gary Schwartz wrote a foreword for the book, calling it one of the best cases of afterlife communication in history.







    The book frees the reader from the fear of death and shows how loved ones can remain in contact after the separation. It is a soul-freeing and soul-feeding reading experience.







    PEN award winning author Mitch Horowitz says ““It has been observed that belief in the afterlife is really a belief in the undying nature of love. In The Afterlife Revolution, Whitley Strieber gives form, story, and insight to that principle, mapping out in vivid, moving, and persuasive detail his continued communion with his beloved wife Anne. Our generation is passing through a renaissance of near and after-death literature. This memoir forms the gravitational center of that field.”







    First there was Communion. Now, 30 years later, there is the Afterlife Revolution.

Fannychops ,

Great podcast - fab host

I only found this podcast recently and am so pleased that I did and that I have a huge backlog to get through. Recently other podcasts have frustrated me as the hosts tend to interrupt their guests or seem to care more about getting their own viewpoints or opinions heard than allowing their guests the space to communicate their research or findings etc.

I love how respectful and patient Simon is with his guests; he actually listens to them, it’s refreshing that he doesn’t interrupt them and clearly does his research too!

Thanks for the podcast - love it! 👌
