Near-death experience (NDE) expert Dr. Scott Taylor found himself in an unusual situation. He was called to visit a distant relative in hospice and help her overcome her fear of death. Not trained in hospice work, he drew upon his knowledge of NDEs to help his cousin learn to embrace her transition.

Near-death experiences, or NDEs, are triggered during singular life-threatening episodes. NDEs share broad commonalities—pain vanishes, bright light or other visual phenomena appear, and one’s consciousness detaches from the body. An NDE might include meeting loved ones (living or dead) or even spiritual beings. By sharing stories of NDEs and the insight they provide, Taylor believes we can trade fear for grace at the end of life.

Taylor is the CEO of the Monroe Institute, the world leader in human consciousness exploration. He will provide a broad overview of the investigative tools and techniques the institute employs that assist individuals seeking to achieve altered states of consciousness. He will also touch on the research efforts of the Monroe institute as they endeavor to be recognized as a source for the public for studies in the field of consciousness studies as well as areas related to it. They are committed to teaching people how to create more meaningful and joyful lives through the guided exploration of expanded consciousness, with the primary goal of furthering the human experience and global consciousness.

Our virtual programs are graciously sponsored by Alpine Bank.
