Embracing the Science
Claire encourages everyone interested in learning about after death communication to look at the science within this field. Contrary perhaps to popular belief, there is an ever mounting body of highly credible scientific research into consciousness studies and parapsychology. Claire is honoured that Dr Julie Beischel of the Windbridge Research Center contributed an essay about her research in Claire’s first book collaboration, Answers From Heaven (Little Brown Books, Piatkus 2017) and that Professor Loyd Auerbach M.S., kindly endorsed Claire’s second book, What the Dead are Dying to Teach Us (Watkins Books, 2019). Dr Julie Beischel and Professor Loyd Auerbach are not the only movers and shakers in the field of consciousness studies and parapsychology, far from it. Science and Spirituality can come together and many brilliant academics are taking a interesting in studying this field.
In truth, mediums have a long standing relationship with scientists, going back at least 150 years. Many have willingly subjected themselves to scientific research throughout history and there is a vast library of research available. As far back as the late 1800’s/early 1900’s eminent academics such as Harry Price, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir Oliver Lodge and Sir William Crookes studied the field of psychical research. That research continues today and is becoming more relevant than ever before.
For those of you with sceptical minds and analytical brains, listed below are many of the modern day scientists as well as links to sites you can visit to find out more about their exciting research. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it will set you on a journey of discovery, whilst new research emerges all the time.
