Near Death Experiences (NDEs) and Out of Body Experiences (OBEs) are compelling and life-changing experiences that involve the sense of self leaving the physical body.

Research by parapsychologists, psychologists, and neuroscientists has begun to uncover the true nature of these mystical experiences.

Could they be proof of life after death and the existence of ‘the soul’?

What else do they reveal about how our brain creates the sense of self as located within our bodies?


Dr Caroline Watt is a founder member of the Koestler Parapsychology Unit, and has been researching and teaching on the subject of paranormal beliefs and experiences for almost thirty years.

A former President of the Parapsychological Association, she runs an online parapsychology course, and is co-author of ‘An Introduction to Parapsychology’, now in its fifth edition.
