HYBRID - Meditation and the Near Death Experience In-Person / Online

Since the 1980s when near death experiences became part of the public consciousness, they have held endless attraction for people. Why do they resonate so powerfully within us?  Join us at the library or online via zoom with Dr. Matthew Raider to learn more on this topic.  Dr. Raider draws parallels between the near-death experiences and those had by people who meditated throughout the ages, coming from all backgrounds, in all countries and all faith and traditions. He will give the audience an opportunity to learn a simple time-tested meditation technique that can help you connect to the peace and the Light within that people who have had NDEs have talked about. There will even be a short meditation sitting.
