The out-of-body experience (OBE), also known as astral or conscious projection, is a natural phenomenon that has been recorded since ancient times. It is not a dream state, but a lucid experience that takes place outside of the physical body. International surveys suggest 10% of the population has semi-conscious OBEs, but researchers say that anyone can learn to consciously undertake an OBE. OBE can allow spiritual beliefs to be replaced by direct personal experience. Benefits of lucid OBE include a greater understanding of one’s life mission, deeper spiritual maturity, improved relations with others and the elimination of the fear of death. OBE can allow one to directly perceive the ancient wisdom teaching that ‘you are not the body.’ The realization that you are vast, free-flowing consciousness is an experience that can change your outlook and your life forever.

He is the Director of Education for the International Academy of Consciousness, where he has held directorial positions since 1999. As a researcher, he has published several papers and has developed research lines in the sciences of Projectiology and Conscientiology.
