At this Study Day we look at factors that seem to play some part in making things happen (or sometimes stopping them from happening), things that in some way reflect the attitudes of the researcher and others involved in the action.
Professor Bernard Carr will chair the meeting. Speakers: Dr Richard Broughton, Professor Adrian Parker, Dr Zofia Weaver & Mary Rose Barrington.

The Wonder of You: What the Near-Death Experience Tells You about Yourself, by Lynn Kathleen Russell

From the author: Lynn Kathleen Russell has researched 2500 NDEs and now shares what she has learned through her extensive investigations. Those who have returned from death frequently come back with vastly different ways of seeing the world, others, and themselves.  They are more caring, gentle, and have a deeper sense of spirituality.

 Russell was the primary researcher for Dr. Jeff Long MD for his book, Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences, and the owner of the website NDERF (Near Death Experience Research Foundation).  Within the many cases she examined and discovered wonderful messages she wanted to share with others.   Through her research, Russell found these cases offered deeply hidden messages about the world, life and the paths we all travel. Her book will guide readers toward their own personal discoveries, and is designed for readers who are looking to understand their place in the world.

 Prior to researching with NDERF, Lynn Russell was a family counsellor for over twenty-five years in Calgary, Alberta Canada.
