When it comes to death, there are so many ways to go about thinking of such a concept. It is a phenomenon that no one can truly explain.

On March 9-14, at Sivananda Yoga Ashram Retreat on Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas, FIU’s Program in the Study of Spirituality will be working with Sivananda Yoga Ashram Bahamas to host an event called “Near Death Experiences and Life After Death.”

This event is open to University staff, students and the public as well, with several hundred people expected to show up. Attendees will need to provide their own transportation and accomodations in addition to the tickets to the event.

The event consists of five speakers discussing near-death experiences and what life is like after death along with various activities such as yoga, music, tai chi, massages, and more.

This particular event is the first of its kind, however this is the third time FIU’s Program in the Study of Spirituality will be working with Sivananda Yoga Ashram Bahamas to host an event.

Nathan Katz, professor at the School of International and Public Affair, is coordinating this event and will also be making a speech during the event.

These events include bringing in world-renowned scholars and teachers. Raymond Moody, Eben Alexander, Arthur Seltzer, Ven Samani Unnata Pragya and Katz will be this years’ scholars and teachers. They will be speaking about near-death experiences and life after death, and Katz feels there is a lot to gain from listening to these speakers.

Katz hopes, “they will walk away fearing death less, and discover who we really are. One cannot fully live until one confronts death and overcomes innate fears.”
