You can skeptically dismiss the Afterlife Convention and its exploration into near death experiences, past life memories and "why you chose to be who you are." You can doubt its claims of sticking to fact-based realities and eyewitness accounts authors. And you can question the credibility of its panel of hypnotherapists and metaphysics experts. But aren't you the slightest bit curious, not even ironically? If you legitimately interested and willing to shell out $125, then maybe it's worth it to pay a visit to the conference at Renaissance Hall at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica (1220 2nd St).
