The Eternities: Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience with Graham Nicholls

imagesSubjective mental states and the nature of consciousness remains a perennial topic of debate here at Disinfo. Martin at The Eternities podcast has interviewed Graham Nicholls, author of Navigating the Out of Body Experience.

Via The Eternities:

Graham Nicholls claims to have experienced hundreds of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) since his first spontaneous one at twelve years old. Over the years he has sought to hone the art in his efforts to increase the number of his own experiences and their attainability for others. Graham has for several years offered one-on-one coaching and in 2012 published Navigating the Out of Body Experience, detailing his techniques alongside an exploration of the science and philosophy of the area, as well as what to expect from an experience.

In the podcast, Graham discusses the idea of the OBE as taking place within “the extended mind”; his holistic, multi-disciplinary approach; the psychological and energetic benefits; the interviewer’s own experiences with OBEs, influencing his novel, Human+; the three main impediments to having an experience; Graham’s telepathy experiments with Rupert Sheldrake; and veridical evidence for OBEs.
