Del Mar, California (PressExposure) March 05, 2009 -- The scientific study of mediums (individuals who experience regular communication with the deceased) is over a century old. While serious research into the phenomenon has not been part of mainstream science, Dr. Julie Beischel, Director of Research at the Windbridge Institute in Tucson is pressing forward.
Her presentation at 7 pm on March 20th at the Scottish Rite Event Center in San Diego is titled Spirit in the Laboratory: What Science Can Tell Us about the Afterlife. The presentation will focus on how mediumship is investigated in a controlled laboratory setting, what conclusions can be drawn from the data collected to date, the practical applications of mediumship in grief recovery and hospice care, how mediumship can affect the lives of those who have lost a loved one, and how to choose a medium and get the most out of a reading.

She was the first recipient of the William James Post-doctoral Fellowship in Mediumship and Survival Research at the University of Arizona where she co-directed the VERITAS Research Program with Dr. Gary E. Schwartz.
