Near Death Experiences: Exploring the Mind-Body Connection

Illustrated slide lecture of groundbreaking research on Near-Death Experiences (NDEs).

In this illustrated slide lecture, Dr Ornella Corazza will share the fruits of her groundbreaking research on Near-Death Experiences (NDEs). Along with the reports and studies of NDEs, she refers to accounts of sessions with the powerful dissociative drug, ketamine, and draws from contemporary Japanese philosophies of embodiment to argue against the traditional "survivalist" interpretation of NDEs and offers us a new perspective on what human life is and also what it can be.

Ornella Corazza, PhD, is a NDE researcher at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. In 2004-5 she was a member of the 21st Century Centre of Excellence (COE) Program on the Construction of Death and Life Studies at the University of Tokyo, Japan, in the course of which she studied Near Death Experiences among the Japanese. In 2006 she was appointed to the University of Wales, Lampeter, as a lecturer on the MA degree on The Body: Eastern and Western Perspectives, where she is responsible for a new module on Japanese theories of the body. She is the author of a number of academic publications including Remember (2006), a book on ritual practises in North-East Italy. Her latest books is just released: Near-Death Experiences: Exploring the Mind-Body Connection (2008). She lives and works in London.
