Neil HelmEffects of NDEs on Religious Beliefs and Spiritual Values

This presentation will be the first public discussion of my Sofia University PhD dissertation that is scheduled to be completed prior to the July conference. My dissertation will investigate the influence that near-death experiences, especially their after-effects, have on religious beliefs and spiritual values. While some excellent research has taken place on the after-effects of NDEs on religious beliefs and/or spiritual values. Holden, Long, and MacClurg (2009), conclude that “Further research on this question is clearly warranted” (p. 119). In the study of the influence of NDE after-effects on religion and spirituality, it is important to establish a basic understanding of religion and then one can look at the similarities and differences between religion and spirituality. My presentation will include the results of a questionnaire that I plan to submit to over 100 NDErs. This questionnaire will seek data on how NDE after-effects have changed personal lives and family dynamics, especially in the area of religious beliefs and spiritual values. The questionnaire data may reveal that certain after-effects are more positive and/or negative to family dynamics than others.
