Shared Dreams

In cooperation with Prof. Dr Adrian Parker

Project Description:

Encounters with Deceased Persons

In cooperation with Prof. Dr. Adrian Parker

(Trinity College, University of Cambridge, UK)

Project description:

As statistics show many older persons in the industrial states – between 60 and 80 percent – experience encounters with their deceased partners, for instance apparitions, acoustic experiences, olfactorial impressions or simply the strong feeling of their presence. These phenomena are called ‘widow/widower hallucinations’. They are usually understood and experienced by them as real encounters with the deceased. Our study investigates such excperiences amongst the younger population, i.e. people under the age of 65, in order to see, if the roll of the age plays a minor part in it. We don’t want to enclude just persons who are grieving for their husband or wife, but all those who have “lost” a near and beloved person through death. Of special interest are cases in which the deceased communicate an information which nobody else had known up to this point in time and which can be verified.

Apparitions of Light and Light Beings Observed in Crisis and Crisis-Related Situations: An Analysis of Case Reports and Their Possible Implications For a Post-mortem State of Consciousness

(Society for Psychical Research (SPR), London, UK)

Project Description:

This project concerns persons who have experienced unusual light or light beings. Such cases have been reported throughout recorded history: People have seen unusually bright lights, balls of lights, shining light around humans, around healthy persons as well as around the dying. Bright and radiant beings – in the Christian context often called angels – or religious figures as Christ and even God himself have repeatedly been percieved and experienced as intense light radiating love. The reports in the literature since the beginning of psychical research (end of the 1900s) will be analysed and evaluated with regard to certain aspects, new interviews will be integrated in order to throw light on the phenomena from various angles. Relevant for research are especially occurances with more than one witness and such cases which seem to have a realistic basis in terms of conveyance of information.

See the book “Light Changes. Experiences in Transforming Light” 2014.
