Description


'...a groundbreaking work with the potential to fundamentally transform the current clinical practice.' Evelyn Elsaesser, expert of death-related experiences and project leader of an investigation into spontaneous After-Death Communications (ADCs)
Historically, children's inexplicable experiences -- from telepathy and conversing with deceased relatives to out-of-body or near-death experiences, and more -- have been theorised through traditional scientific lenses that may not have the explanatory power to account for such experiences. In Children's Unexplained Experiences in a Post Materialist World, Donna Thomas shares research that she and other scholars, past and present, have conducted with children and young people across the world. By placing children's unexplained experiences and views about reality in the contexts of culture, consciousness and the nature of self, this book offers a middleway for explaining these childhood experiences within post-materialist science and philosophy. Thomas suggests that children's experiences could greatly contribute to a new paradigm for understanding the mystery of being human and the nature of reality.
