Alabama Stories: Life After Death, produced by APT’s Lori Cummings, features the accounts of individuals who claim to have experienced life after death and includes interviews with Birmingham’s Dr. T. Lee Baumann, a noted author and a researcher who claims there is scientific research to support the validity of the experience; thanaologist (thanatology is the study of death and dying) and author Barbara Harris Whitfield, who claims to have had a near-death experience; and Alice Vaughn, a medical social worker with Hospice of Montgomery, who talks about her experiences regarding patients’ behavior at death. The program also features an interview with a resident of Millport, Ala., who talks about her near-death experience.
Dr. T. Lee Baumann has a new book that’s just been published titled “Matter to Mind to Consciousness: Anatomy of the E.L.F.,” which explores and explains the possible links between human consciousness, the paranormal and science (http://www.google.com/profiles/tleebaumann). Baumann also wrote “God at the Speed of Light: The Melding of Science and Spirituality,” which inspired the TV series “Joan of Arcadia.”
Barbara Whitfield Harris is the author of five books, including “Full Circle: The Near-Death Experience and Beyond,” “Spiritual Awakenings: Insights of the Near Death Experience and Other Doorways to Our Soul” and “Final Passage: Sharing the Journey As This Life Ends.”
