Welcome

The spiritual life is then part of the human essence.  It is a defining characteristic of

human nature, without which human nature is not full human nature.

It is part of the Real Self, of one’s identity, of one’s inner core, of

one’s specieshood, of full humanness.

Abraham  H. Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, 1993.


This website is dedicated to advancing knowledge and to raising awareness and understanding of after-death contact and its relationship with the psychospiritual growth and development of the individual.

It takes its name from a qualitative PhD doctoral study entitled, Ways of Being: The alchemy of bereavement and communiqué (Knight, 2013).

The study has its origin in the lived experience of bereavement which provided the psychosocial and psychospiritual context for spontaneous and unsought encounters with the returning deceased.
