Episode 99 – Belief in Ghosts – Is it Irrational?

Chris and Rowan share stories of people who’ve had encounters with the deceased and ask what meaning or benefit can come out of such experiences?
Sometimes, when someone has an experience with the spirit of a loved one, they will hide it through fear of being intellectually weak or using magical thinking. However, many healthy people believe in encounters with a spirit or someone who’s passed away and many of Chris’s clients’ wellbeing has improved greatly after they experienced some sort of spiritual encounter.
