“Beyond Death, Medical Facts and Meditation”  

image.pngSince the 1980s when near death experiences became part of the public consciousness, they have held endless attraction for people. Why do they resonate so powerfully within us? Join Dr. Raider, hear the latest medical research and discover a simple, natural way to connect with the inner light talked about by those who’ve experienced a NDE. Through a simple time-honored method of meditation, you too can explore those realms of peace within you. 

Dr Raider draws parallels between near-death experiences and those had by people who meditated throughout the ages, coming from all backgrounds, in all countries and all faith traditions. He then gives the audience an opportunity to learn a simple meditation technique that can enable them to experience the peace and the Light that people who have had NDEs talk about. 

Matthew Raider, MD, is a clinical physician and coordinating director of the Geriatric Teaching Program in Family Medicine at Middlesex Hospital in Connecticut. He has been practicing meditation for over 30 years. Dr. Raider is a physician with a strong interest in meditation and its relationship to health. He lectures extensively about the healing power of meditation at hospitals, schools and private venues throughout the United States and Canada.
