Evidence for Soul Survival

Evidence for Soul Survival

What happens to us at the moment of death?  Where do we go when we dream?  Are reports of near-death experiences, reincarnation, and apparitions more fact or fiction?  What happens when we die remains one of humanity's most persistent questions.  Drawing on sources as diverse as religion and folklore, literature, case studies in early paranormal research, and new cutting-edge theories and experiments in parapsychology and neuroscience, paranormal educator Neil McNeill weaves a rich tapestry of questions, theories, and perspectives through time and across cultures that suggests there may indeed be life after life.

About the Speaker:

Neil McNeill has worked in the fields of parapsychology, paranormal field investigation, and paranormal education for over 25 years.  He is a consultant for television, film, and print media and regularly lectures for ghost conferences, paranormal events, and professional organizations. 

In 2012, Neil produced "Dark & Stormy Nights: Parapsychology for Ghost Hunters", an educational DVD based on his popular and long-running college courses.  He also co-chaired the education panel with Loyd Auerbach at the 2014 International Convention of the Parapsychological Association. 

Neil is a member of the Rhine Research Center, the Parapsychological Association, and the Seattle Consciousness Education & Research Society.  Neil co-founded the annual Port Gamble Ghost Conference, serves as the director of Paranormal Studies Institute, and co-directs the ParaPsi College.

Paranormal Pub

Paranormal Pub

Join us once a month to hear from experts in unexplainable phenomena - think UFOs, extraterrestrials, Bigfoot, ESP, ghosts and beyond. Come have a beer and a burger handcrafted beverage, concessions, and/or a slice of pizza, settle in and learn something new from a curated line-up of scholars, experiencers and others.

According to Wikipedia: "Paranormal events are phenomena described in popular culture, folklore and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described to lie beyond normal experience or scientific explanation.

A paranormal phenomenon is different from hypothetical concepts such as dark matter and dark energy. Unlike paranormal phenomena, these hypothetical concepts are based on empirical observations and experimental data gained through the scientific method.

The most notable paranormal beliefs include those that pertain to ghosts, extraterrestrial life, unidentified flying objects, psychic abilities or extrasensory perception and cryptids."

We thank the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for coordinating and hosting this programming at the historic Mission Theater.

History

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
