In this slide-illustrated module, we will explore the observations from various areas of modern consciousness research, such as psychedelic research, thanatology, shamanic studies, experiential psychotherapies, and the work with people in psycho-spiritual crises („spiritual emergencies“) that have important implications for the understanding of death and dying. We will focus on such topics as survival of consciousness after death, „dying before dying,“ near-death experiences (NDE), out-of-body experiences (OBEs), the process of psycho-spiritual death and rebirth, psychedelic therapy with terminal cancer patients, karma and reincarnation, inter-dimensional trans communication (ITC), ancient mysteries of death and rebirth, aboriginal rites of passage, eschatological mythologies, and the ancient books of the dead (Egyptian, Tibetan, Mayan, Aztec, and the European Ars moriendi).
