What can the final words of the dying tell us about life after death? What does language tell us about altered states and new dimensions? Meet Dr. Raymond Moody, the bestselling author of 12 books, including the paradigm-changing Life After Life in which he coined the term "near-death experience. In this workshop he collaborates with Lisa Smartt, bestelling author of Words at the Threshhold. Together, they have been researching people's final words and revealing significant insights about the nature of consciousness. In this remotely facilitated workshop they will share their findings and guide participants through hands-on exercises that illuminate what language reveals to us about the afterlife. Raymond and Lisa will lead participants through a discussion of final words, altered states, and the communications of near-death experiencers. They will offer mind-bending activities as they explore the continuum of language and offer participants new tools for increased creativity and intuition. A note about the format of this workshop: Participants in this event must attend in person at Unity of Fairfax in Oakton, Virginia. Due to Dr. Moody's travel restrictions, he and Lisa Smartt will facilitate the experiential workshop remotely through a live video feed. Dr. Moody and Lisa Smartt will NOT be at Unity of Fairfax, but they will be on a live video feed and participants will be able to interact, ask questions, and participate in discussion with the presenters. This is NOT a traditional webinar that participants can access remotely. This program is offered by Unity of Fairfax in conjunction with the Northern Virginia Chapter of the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS). To learn more about this workshop or the Northern Virigina Chapter of IANDS, email Chapter Host Angie Willson-Quayle at [masked]. About Raymond Moody: World-Renowned Scholar and Researcher.
