Buddhist monk and scholar Geshe Tenzin Namdak enters in conversation with Dr. Pim van Lommel. After working as a cardiologist for 26 years in Rijnstate Hospital, Dr. van Lommel is doing full-time research on the relationship between brain and mind, and is one of the world’s leading experts on Near Death Experiences (NDEs).
In this dialogue, Geshe Namdak and Dr. van Lommel discuss the origins of our conscious experiences, comparing the insights of Buddhist teachings with modern scientific research on NDEs. They will also explore the relationship between consciousness and quantum phenomena, and explore the transformative power of NDEs and contemplative practices.
The dialogue is moderated by Scott Snibbe, host and producer of A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment.
