In this talk Graham Nicholls will outline the journey he has been on over the last 25 years to rationally understand the nature of his out-of-body experiences. After drawing upon both proponent and sceptical interpretations of the OBE he will discuss why he feels that the veridical elements of some experiences suggest that OBEs are not hallucinations or bodily illusions.
Friday 6th to Sunday 8th September 2013
The SPR’s 37th International Annual conference will be held at the Swansea University, Singleton Park, Swansea, SA2 8PP, Wales, UK between Friday 6 and Sunday 8 September 2013.
Swansea University is the second closest university campus to the sea in the world, so we hope you will enjoy the location. As always, our very full conference programme will address a broad range of topics, covering both spontaneous cases and laboratory research.
In addition to the talks, conferences are a marvelous opportunity to network and share views, and there will be time to socialise over lunch and the regular coffee breaks, not to mention during the President’s drinks reception on Friday evening and Saturday’s conference banquet. Speakers have come from all over the UK, as well as from Europe and Japan, making it truly an international event.
This year’s conference promises to be full of interest, as ever, and the new chairman of our Conference Programme Committee will add a fresh take on a tried and tested formula. Those who attend, whether this is their first conference or their thirty-seventh, can be sure of having both an informative and a very enjoyable time.
We look forward to seeing you in Swansea!
