Beverly Gilmour, 100s of NDE and a New Insight About Consciousness |350| by Alex Tsakiris | May 23 | Consciousness Science, Near-Death Experience Share Tweet SHARES0 Beverly Gilmour has a rare medical condition that has caused her to experience 100s of NDEs. photo by: Skeptiko On this episode of Skeptiko… Alex Tsakiris: We’ve established [the medical part of your experience], tell us about the spiritual phenomenon… Beverley Gilmour: If you said, “Why have you been having them?” I’d say it’s about our evolution, it’s about learning and every now and then we get these odd cases like mine thrown in and it gives science, it gives the medical profession, it gives us all an ability to look deep into something that interests us and that might have answers, and spiritually, one of the things that I often hear, if you don’t believe that an NDE is a real event and you say it’s caused by false memories or illusions, I can say, without any hesitation, that’s absolutely not the case. Stay with us for Skeptiko… Alex Tsakiris: Welcome to Skeptiko where we explore controversial science and spirituality with leading researchers, thinkers and their critics. I’m your host, Alex Tsakiris, and on today’s show a very interesting, challenging account from someone who’s had just an unbelievable number of near-death or real-death experiences. Beverley Gilmour, as you’ll hear in this show, has experienced 30 years of more or less continuous, often near-death experiences, what she’s gained out of that, the message that she has is, I think, quite controversial or at least it will be for some people. There’s definitely a strong Jesus angle to her experience, but she also has an insight in terms of consciousness that is quite unique and quite interesting as well and could have implications for near-death experience research and consciousness research in general. I was extremely skeptical going into this interview, and I have to say, I’m less skeptical coming out. I don’t know what to make of everything that Beverley has to say and you’ll hear that in this interview as well, but I’m not too quick to dismiss what she says either. I hope you enjoy my interview with Beverley Gilmour.
