Presentation: Saturday, Nov. 3 at the A.R.E. from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon

Neil will present the highlights of his recent Ph.D. dissertation entitled: “The Effects of Near-Death Experiences on Religious and Spiritual Beliefs.” This dissertation research focused on how NDE after-effects, with their profound psychological and ontological impacts, transformed participants’ beliefs, activities, and relationships. Neil conducted extensive interviews with twelve participants who had memorable NDEs. The results of these interviews will provide the audience with a compelling examination of NDEs and their overall effects on individual lives. Neil’s own NDE and decades of inquiry into NDE research provides a sense of tacit knowing and unity with this research.



About Neil:

Neil Helm graduated June 2018 with a Ph.D. in transpersonal psychology from Sofia University in Palo Alto, California.  He has also just retired after five years as Atlantic University’s Scholar in Residence, where he taught and assisted students and faculty with research. Neil’s first career was in space science research where he was employed in corporate, government, and academic entities for over forty years.  From 1991 to 2008 he directed a research center at the School of Engineering and Applied Science at George Washington University.  The highlight of this space career was his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995, for his seminal research and development of space-based communications and location (GPS) systems for the disaster mitigation and search & rescue communities.  His systems and networks are still in use today and are credited with saving many thousands of lives.



Workshop: Saturday, November 3 at the A.R.E. 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Neil will detail four areas of how NDEs may assist in receiving recognition from the research community at large.  These four areas include (1) the human brain’s role in clinical death and consciousness, (2) NDE responses with blindness, (3) veridical perception (out-of-body viewing), and (4) quantum mechanics.  He will especially invite the audience to share their stories in these four areas as well as other NDE experiences. Admission $15.

FIL Service: Sunday, November 4 at 10:45 a.m.

Neil will also be speaking at the Fellowship of the Inner Light, located at 620 14th Street (between Mediterranean and Cypress), in Virginia Beach.  He will give a thirty-minute talk about similar topics covered in the presentation described above.  Meditation starts at 10:30 a.m. and Service begins at 10:45 a.m.
