About the Afterlife Conference
The Afterlife Conference blurs the boundaries between intuitive experience and scientific research, and between dualistic religious traditions and a spirituality of oneness. Our goal is to provide wisdom and support for those dealing with the end of life, and also to increase awareness of life beyond the physical body, through a mystical approach to death and bereavement.
Where sacred ceremonies and inter-dimensional encounters are an everyday affair
Our conference offers expanded training in a an advanced understanding of birth, death and the journey of the soul, through
in-depth experiential workshops on dealing with the end of life, conscious dying, conscious grieving, after-death communication
and out-of-body exploration.
Where shamans break bread with scientists
We unite the disciplines in furthering an understanding of the survival of consciousness after death, bringing together hospice workers, physicians, mediums, clergy, counselors and alternative healers with a common goal... to offer a deeper understanding of death and beyond. Our presenters are the best and the brightest in the fields of afterlife research, hospice care, near-death experience, after-death communication, out-of-body experiences and bereavement.
The material presented at The Afterlife Conference is organized into the following "interest tracks"
that address everything from scientific research on near-death experience and after-death communication
to mystical and psycho-social practices for assisting the dying with their journeys:
Bereavement: The Next Step. Help for dealing with the end of life
We are constantly discovering new, non-mainstream approaches to grief, such as mystical rituals, innovative training for counselors, multi-cultural practices and alternative theologies/cosmologies related to birth and death.This material is of particular interest to grief counselors, and also to bereaved individuals who are ready to move toward a deeper metaphysical understanding of death, trauma and loss.
Academic Study, Theological Discourse and Scientific Research
Each year we attract more and more academics who are interested in research about the survival of consciousness after death, including after-death communication, near-death experience, out-of-body experience and mediumship. We are also honored to welcome theologians and religious scholars who have much to teach us about afterlife concepts throughout history.
Higher Consciousness in Clinical Settings
Thanks to increasing interest in our conference from medical professionals, we've added a new track to address the many ways to work with spirituality in hospitals, hospices and medical facilities. Presentations in this track address practices and processes for conscious dying, ritual, the healing power of animal companions, clinical chaplaincy, physician education about end-of-life care, and more.
Spiritual Exploration: After-death communication and out-of-body experience
Like many conferences in this field, we feature well-known mediums who offer both private readings and on-stage demonstrations that include readings for audience members. But our mediums are also teachers. They don’t just give you a fish and feed you for a day; they teach you to fish and give you skills that last lifetimes. Our mediumship workshops offer instruction in how to communicate with the higher realms of consciousness via psychic development exercises, dream work, meditation, past life regression, channeling and after-death communication tools. Presentations explore questions such as: How do we use our understanding of the soul’s journey to help us cope with loss, grief or upheaval? How do we maintain our connection to Spirit while dealing with the mundane details of physical life? All of our mediums are personally screened and vetted by our board members.
