Sunday, February 23, 2014 “Near-death Experiences and the Brain”

Host/Presenter: Ray Cross

This Sunday the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s program will be a scientific look at near-death experiences titled Near-death Experiences and the Brain.  The presenter is Dr. Andrew Newberg.

Dr. Newberg is Director of research at the Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania  He has published extensively on brain function, brain imaging, and the study of religious and spiritual experiences. This look at near death experiences is quite different from the normal scientific approach that you may have considered in the past.

The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship meets every Sunday beginning at 10:30 AM at the Twin Falls Senior Center, 530 Shoshone Street West in Twin Falls.

Newcomers are always welcome. Child care is available. We are handicapped accessible.

Please park in the front of the building.

For those of you who would like to have a preview of Dr. Newburg’s thoughts please listen to this recording from National Public Radio:
