Moody, R.A. (1994).
A latter day psychomanteum.
Proceedings of the 37th PA Convention, Amsterdam, Aug.7-10, pp.335-337.
Inspired by the psychomanteums, or oracles of the dead, in ancient Greece, I have developed a procedure to facilitate visionary encounters with departed loved ones. The central feature is a chamber with a large mirror into which clear depththe subject gazes. Of 50 volunteer subjects guided through the procedure, 35 described vivid experiences. Other researchers, who have used this method, report similar results. The work helps to explain the reports from the Greek oracles of the dead, it provides opportunities to explore brain activities durinf visionary experiences, and it may be developed into a therapy for prolonged grief states.
