The mission of The Windbridge Research Center is to ease suffering around dying, death, and what comes next by performing rigorous scientific research and sharing the results and other customized content with practitioners, clinicians, scientists, and the general public.
Research on Misconceptions about Mediums
Julie Beishel, PhD is the Director of Research at Windbridge. (I was fortunate to spend time with her at a conference. I deeply admire her precision, and humor—a great package!) She writes: At the Windbridge Research Center, we try to correct any misinformation about mediums we encounter.
For example, when Dr. Julie Beischel spends time with her uncle Harold* (say, at a holiday dinner table), he (say, after a couple of drinks) often launches into a barrage of erroneous statements that she tries to calmly correct.
Dr. Beischel collected some of these conversations and created a document called “‘Well, actually…’ (Responses to Common Misconceptions about Mediums).”
