Afterlife Explorers
A great way to kick off this year with the Afterlife Explorers Conference. It was fantastic to see such a diverse melting pot of ideas and perspectives and to chat with some of the amazing speakers, including Anthony Peake. During the weekend I managed to have one presentation and two interviews, some sections were filmed and I believe videos of the conference will be available soon. I was particularly impressed by participant's willingness to debate and critique some of the concepts, and the great turnout at my presentation, which covered research methods into the survival hypothesis. Unfortunately when discussing such topics in the past I've encountered a lot of resistance, with people unwilling to bend their belief systems to accommodate new ideas. Thus, it was excellent to see more people taking a genuine stance of curiosity, rather than taking an ideological stance.

I have a feeling that the conference will build the foundations for some fascinating discussions to come in the year ahead. Thank you again to Mick Turner and Kathryn Hand for making this happen.

  • Graham Nicholls

    Leading OBE Researcher & Practitioner, Speaker, Author

    Between Two Worlds - NDE, OBE, and SDEs

    In this talk, Graham Nicholls will share insights and evidence from more than 30 years of direct exploration of the out-of-body experience (OBE). He will begin by outlining early events in his life related to reincarnation and OBEs. These events initiated a journey to understand what was happening to him and to explore the evidence for some form of afterlife.

    In 1996 he left his body and found himself in an otherworldly environment, watching more than a hundred people going through various elements of what appeared to be the transitional stage after death. This Shared Death Experience (SDE) was a powerful example as it involved the afterlife experience of so many people, and the details were later confirmed when he returned to his physical body.

    More recently he has explored other levels related to life after death and has been drawn to various states in his OBEs suggestive of a complex web of consciousness, memory, and perception. His aim is to draw upon science to gain a greater understanding of what these levels and states tell us about the nature of our reality. All of Graham’s ideas are backed by a rigorous scientific approach, both directly in the laboratory, and through his analysis of his own experiences, as well as those of individuals he teaches.

    About Graham

    Graham is the Director of the Out of Body and Near Death Experience Society (UK), as well as a member of The Rhine Research Center advisory board (US). He is the author of Avenues of the Human Spirit, a moving account of his personal journey, and exploration of the out-of-body experience. As well as his second book, Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience, which offers a totally new way to learn to induce OBEs. He is a co-author of two further books and is also featured in the work of several other authors.

    He has organised, conducted and taken part in experiments into telepathy and other psi abilities with author and biologist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, and has also taken part in Dr Dean Radin’s research aimed at influencing the famous quantum double-slit experiment, using only psi ability, all with positive results. His out-of-body experiences have been described as some of the best proven and witnessed examples on record. His most famous example, the Soho bombing OBE, was unique in the history of parapsychology as it was witnessed as it took place, and all the details were confirmed 5 days later.

    Since the late 1990s Graham has lectured widely at venues including: Cambridge University (UK), The Institute of Noetic Sciences (US), The Society for Psychical Research (UK),  The Rhine Research Center (US), Centre for the Study of Anomalous Psychological Processes (UK), Science Museum (UK), and The International Remote Viewing Association (US). He has been interviewed by The Times, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Daily Express, The Epoch Times, and the BBC, as well as many overseas and independent media including: Lilou Mace, AfterlifeTV, Skeptiko, and Mysterious Universe.
