Kim Penberthy PhD, will present “An Introduction to the Study of the Mind-Body Relationship with a Focus on Extraordinary Experiences and Fear of Death” in a live Zoom presentation, hosted by Claudia Nielsen, as part of an ongoing series of The Scientific and Medical Network London group talks currently held online. These talks were previously held as live events in Hampstead, London.
Kim will provide a brief overview of the Division of Perceptual Studies of the University of Virginia, its history, and current research focus, including near death experiences and their impact. She will then focus on her own current research exploring the impact of both spontaneous experiences, such as perceived communications from deceased loved ones, and intentionally induced alterations in consciousness, via such things as meditation and other contemplative exercises. The results of multiple studies exploring these impacts will be discussed. She will also explore fear of death and dying and their recent research exploring the prevalence of such as well as potential effective strategies to reduce this anxiety and why doing so would be beneficial.
