Windbridge Research Center

Ghosts Are People Too: The Science Behind Talking to the Dead

Mark Boccuzzi and Julie Beischel, PhD, scientists from the non-profit Windbridge Research Center, will be discussing the realities of grief; how mediums are tested in the lab; and common after-death communication experiences. They will also share useful tips that may help you choose a medium, prepare for a reading, and hear from your loved ones on your own.

The Windbridge Research Center is an Arizona nonprofit corporation whose mission is to ease suffering around dying, death, and what comes next by performing rigorous scientific research and sharing the results and other customized content with practitioners, clinicians, scientists, and the general public. Our goal is to help people distinguish evidence-based information from speculation and sensationalized claims. To that end, the center produces free, science-based fact sheets, informational videos, and publishes Threshold: Journal of Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies a free, open-access, peer-reviewed journal. For more information about the Center please visit www.Windbridge.org

Mark and Julie’s presentation will be open to the public.
