The Windbridge Institute

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.

Since 2008, the Windbridge Center has been dedicated to performing scientific research and creating educational materials focused on dying, death, and what comes next. The Center focuses on the charitable activities of performing rigorous scientific research and public education while parapsychology-related application development will stay with the existing for-profit Windbridge Institute.
