Breakout Session: V. Quinton Wacks, PhD
Soul Making in the Classroom of Life and Beyond
The literature and experience of life after death will be examined, discussed and experienced. Its application for soul making and spiritual practice will be considered. Various experiential activities will be used to give the participants a personal experience of the state/stages of consciousness being offered for consideration as well as references to the presenter’s own life long experiences. This knowledge base supports and compliments the other approaches addressed in this conference and provides further opportunities to develop therapeutic responses to such experiences.
