Interviewing QFAS members

A new feature for our newsletter and this site is Interviewing QFAS members. We hope you will enjoy learning more about other members and the journey that led them to QFAS.

If any QFAS member would like to answer some interesting questions about spiritual and psychic matters, please contact the web manager who will send the questions by email. NB: There is no obligation to answer all of them!


Events coming up

We look forward to our joint event on Saturday 28 May with the Churches Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies (CFPSS) and the Unitarian Society for Psychical Studies (USPS), to be held in Malvern. The conference theme is Pushing the Boundaries: examining the theological, philosophical & practical approaches to psychical research. Places are limited so please see the Events page to book now.

In the autumn we will hold our annual conference at the delightful Launde Abbey in Leicestershire, from 23 to 26 September. More details will be posted on the Events page shortly.


AGM follow-up: a draft questionnaire on the afterlife

Tony Burden of Leigh-on-Sea Quaker Meeting (Essex) recently sent this letter and questionnaire to each member of his Meeting. Some of the replies he received were sufficiently positive for him to go ahead and start a group which is now meeting each month at his home.

QFAS members at the AGM at Woodbrooke on 19.9.15, (held during the residential conference), read the letter with great interest, and some expressed a hope to do something similar in their own meeting. Some printed copies of the letter were available and a copy on the website was promised. If you wish, please adapt the letter and questionnaire for your own use.

Read the QFAS Clerk’s Report for 2014-15 for more news about QFAS over the past year and planned activities for 2015-16.

Have you read any good books lately?

I am suggesting it might be interesting to post some reviews of books we’ve enjoyed reading. Many people with an interest in the afterlife are currently reading “Proof of Heaven” by Eben Alexander. I think it is unique in that the person experiencing a prolonged NDE (of a week!) is a neurosurgeon who can say with absolute certainty that the neocortex of his brain was not active during this time. This book review was written by QFAS committee member, Ros Smith.
