Continuum of Consciousness: Experiencing the Phases of Life, Death and Rebirth – The Bahamas

April 5 @ 8:00 am - April 8 @ 5:00 pm

Weekend Symposium at the Sivananda Yoga Retreat Center – The Bahamas

Profound spiritual experiences often occur at the borders of life and death, including near-death experiences, shared death experiences, and deathbed visions. Even after-death communication, memories of past lives, and the time between lives have been experienced by people around the world. Is there a scientific framework to help us better comprehend these universally mysterious experiences?

Join us for an enlightening and expansive discussion, covering the full spectrum of the cycle of existence, including what takes place at the borders of life and death and what might occur between lifetimes on earth. The theme of unconditional love is ever-present throughout these concepts, as well as human relationships as a means to support the soul’s quest for learning and growth.

Along with synthesizing spiritual experiences within a modern scientific model, you will explore the boundaries and potentials of consciousness. Participants will also learn practical approaches to cultivate and nurture healthy relationships with the universe, address the fear of death, and identify life’s greater purpose. Soak in the inspiration to live your life more fully … and shift your perspective to include a grand vision of your existence.
