Conscious Community Lecture sponsored by the A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop.

Do We Survive Death? The evidence suggests YES… but not in the way you might think.

“What happens to us after death?”  In the past, religions have provided our only answers to that question.  But now science claims that “you” are only your brain… and that “you” vanish when your brain stops working. Patrick will share evidence that you are much more than your brain… and show research that reveals that some part of you does survive death. He’ll share two short videos, and ideas from Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Edgar Cayce, Carl Sagan, Ian Stevenson, and – perhaps most interestingly – from people who have, themselves, survived death. 



This event is free and open to the public.

Patrick Belisle

Patrick has been a spiritual seeker since the age of 14 and has been a member of Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. since 1995. He has been an A.R.E. Camp counselor since 1996, teaching children to meditate and watch their dreams for meaning, and is currently A.R.E.’s Development Director. Raised Catholic, Pat was introduced to Jung, Freud, James, and various Eastern philosophies and religions by Benedictine monks at St. John’s University in his home state of Minnesota. Since then, he has lived with Buddhist monks in Thailand, explored the inner worlds at the Osho Commune in India where he had a mystical experience which led him to spend many years studying the Cayce material. Pat is also a certified hypnotherapist, an ordained minister (performing marriages, funerals, baby blessings, and more), and an A.R.E. speaker. From the time he was voted “Friendliest Person” in high school until this very day, Pat makes people feel right at home and cared for, from the moment you meet.
