Ines Beyer spoke with me from her home in Düsseldorf, Germany. Ines is the author of the award winning book Death is not the end: understanding the transition between lives. Having gone through a personal life crisis facing her own mortality, she started to explore out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, and the afterlife. She has volunteered at the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) from 2008 – 2018, and taught classes on out-of-body experiences. During 2019 she worked with Mosaic Wellness and Education focusing on death and afterlife. She also studied Metaphysical Sciences and Past Life Hypnotherapy, and she is passionate about human consciousness evolution. When we spoke she was awaiting the imminent arrival of her first child.
Reflecting on death and becoming fully conscious of our mortality is a key aspect of maturing as a consciousness and many spiritual traditions emphasise this. Ines’s approach is very evidence focused and we discuss the evidence that shows us that consciousness survives physical death, and indeed precedes physical birth. We explore what it means to die, and through that what it means to live. We consider how we can turn intellectual understanding of being more than our body into embodied knowledge and why many people who have Near Death Experiences struggle with their physical life subsequently. And as this interview took place against the current coronavirus pandemic, we also touch on whether a different perspective of death might give is a different perspective of what is happening. If you have been following this podcast you will notice that this episode is longer than usual. This is the result of me letting go of the aim of fitting into a given time slot and simply going with making sure we discuss all the topics I wanted to discuss. I really enjoyed my conversation with Ines and I hope you will too.
