What happens after we pass from this world? Is there a life after this one? Or do we just disappear forever? What if the end of this life is only the beginning of a spectacular supernatural journey? These are the questions asked in this powerful and poignant feature documentary. Many may be surprised by the answers. Commenting on experiences and beliefs are noted experts Gregg Braden, Dannion Brinkley, Renate Dollinger. Stanislav Grof, John Holland, Dzogchen Ponlop, Robert Thurman, Alberto Villoldo, Neale Donald Walsch and Brian Weiss, a number of whom have experienced NDEs and report experiences that defy any rational or logical explanation, and baffle doctors and scientists alike.

Written and directed by Jay Weidner (Kubrick’s Odyssey, The Last Avatar, Alchemy and others,) Infinity: Journey Beyond Death brings a message of hope and optimism concerning the most mysterious act in a human life–the end of this life and journey to the beyond. This film may change your view from that of dread and pessimism to one of hope, joy and light. (90 min)

+++August’s Speaker+++


Claude Swanson

With Claude Swanson, Ph.D.

off River between Swan & Craycroft

In recent years scientific evidence has accumulated that consciousness continues after death. In the past this subject was considered a topic for religion and philosophy, but new discoveries have increasingly brought it into the focus of scientific investigation. Evidence for the existence and nature of the Afterlife comes from thousands of cases of “near-death experiences,” as well as direct voice mediumship, instrumental communication (EVP), telepathic mediumship, automatic writing, ‘out of body’ exploration of other realms of consciousness, and other methods which have added greatly to our understanding of the nature of consciousness and its survival of death. These sources have also provided a rich and detailed description of the nature of the Afterlife, of its structure and rules, and of important lessons of life that we can apply while we are still here ‘in the body.’

Along with this rich understanding of the nature of the Afterlife have come advances in science which offer glimpses of how we can understand the soul from a scientific point of view. A new science called “Torsion” was discovered in Russia five decades ago which helps us understand the nature of ‘spirit’ as well as astral bodies, the aura, non-local consciousness and other elusive concepts which defy Western science. As the science of Torsion advances, more and more of the puzzling aspects of ‘consciousness’ and the ‘paranormal’ and the ‘spiritual’ and the ‘psychic’ can be understood as different aspects of this deeper wisdom which unifies science and spirituality. In this talk Dr. Swanson will review some of the evidence for the Afterlife and its nature, and outline how the new science of Torsion brings new and deeper insights into the nature of the soul, of consciousness and of the higher dimensions of the Afterlife.

Dr. Claude Swanson was educated as a physicist at MIT and Princeton. Interspersed with a conventional career in applied physics, he has pursued investigations into unconventional physics, investigating the effects of consciousness that do not fit present science. He has proposed the “synchronized universe model” as a way to understand parallel realities, shamanic healing, teleportation, time shifts and other mysteries. His two books summarize these ideas: The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal and Life Force: The Scientific Basis.
