Why You Probably Survive After Death  

This course traces the theories of survival after death from shamanism to related Persian, Egyptian, and Greek polytheistic traditions, and the Buddhist and Vedic traditions. Examine why monotheistic explanations for survival after death are linked to mysticism, and why non-monotheistic explanations are negatively associated in the West with superstition, esotericism, and occultism. Explore the concept of the spirit body, extant in most non-monotheistic traditions, and contrast it with the concept of the soul. We will look at contemporary research on out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, and related parapsychological phenomena. THIS COURSE WILL MEET ONLINE VIA ZOOM.
