An Evening With...

In our current materialist society many see death as a wall, a barrier that ends not only physical life but all personality, memory, and self-awareness.  But what if death instead is a doorway to another, perhaps even higher level of consciousness?  Many religious and spiritual traditions throughout human history have maintained a belief in an afterlife.  And now in the 21st century we are beginning to discover real evidence that consciousness does indeed survive death.  In this evening’s program we will examine such evidence and discuss the profound implications it holds for the way we view life itself.

Mary Ann Melpolder has had a life-long interest in death, bereavement, and the survival of consciousness.  She holds Master's degrees in Thanatology from Hood College and in American Studies with a focus on warfare from the University of Maryland.  She served for two years as a hospice volunteer with Montgomery Hospice working with the dying and their families.  She is a member of the Association for Death, Education, and Counseling, and the International Association of Near-Death Studies.
