For Amazon information, click here: Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon--Survival of Bodily Death, by Raymond Moody.
As ever, you do not need to read all or any of the book to participate in our lively discussion. We ask $3 at the door to cover Press Club usage and our Meetup.com fee. No one will be turned away.
Adapted from an Amazon.com Review - In Life After Life Raymond Moody investigates more than one hundred case studies of people who experienced "clinical death" and were subsequently revived. First published in 1975, this classic exploration of life after death started a revolution in popular attitudes about the afterlife and established Dr. Moody as the world's leading authority in the field of near-death experiences. Life after Life forever changed the way we understand both death -- and life -- selling millions of copies to a world hungry for a greater understanding of this mysterious phenomenon.
The extraordinary stories presented here provide evidence that there is life after physical death, as Moody recounts the testimonies of those who have been to the "other side" and back -- all bearing striking similarities of an overwelming positive nature. These moving and inspiring accounts give us a glimpse of the peace and unconditional love that await us all.

OUR REGULAR MEETUP LOCATION:
The Denver Press Club has offered us the use of their historic facility in downtown Denver for our meetups. By group decision, we meet the FOURTH THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH. As our Thanks, please patronize the establishment. The Press Club restaurant and bar opens at 5 PM, in case you wish to come early for dinner and possibly meet fellow readers or some of Denver's top journalists. We start our meeting at 7 PM. We're usually done by 8:30.
The oldest continuously operating press club in North America, the Denver Press Club is at 1330 Glenarm Place (across from the Denver Athletic Club).
Parking: There are a few spaces behind the building in the alley and a few more angle-in spaces on the north side of the building between the Press Club and the Colorado Press Association (free after 5 PM). If these are full, there are on-street parking meters and parking lots on each corner of the block (avoid the monthly parking spaces directly south of the building, however). The parking lots on 13th Street ares less expensive than the parking lots on 14th Street.
SEE YOU on Thursday, September 23!
