How Real are Past Life Experiences under Hypnosis by Dr Masayuki Ohkado ParaMOOC2019

Presented by Dr Masayuki Ohkado (Chibu University, Japan)

Abstract: This presentation explores the possibility of regarding past-life experiences under hypnosis as possible recalls of real memories by reporting two studies conducted by the presenter. One is a case of a Japanese woman recalled past-life experiences as a village chief in Nepal, in which the subject was able to communicate in a language she did not know. The other is a questionnaire-based study comparing the features and aftereffects of near-death experiences and ‘death’ experiences under hypnosis.
