Personal Theology: Dr. Kendra Smith
9:30 am - 10:45 am
Feb 25: Dr. Kendra Smith, psychotherapist, trainer and coach; teacher of metta and vipassana meditation; and longtime UUCB member. “Consciousness After Death? Investigation and Personal Experience.” For many persons, this topic is unsettling and controversial, but there has been some serious investigation and for centuries there have been reports of communication with persons “on the other side.” Saint Augustine was one of these reporters. The belief that when the brain flatlines it ends consciousness is a culture-bound belief. Kendra will speak of investigations and of her own experience. She will also touch on the relationship between some forms of meditation and out-of-the-ordinary experiences.
