Heaven In Mind?

People who report having near-death experiences often describe entering into a ‘heaven-like’ light, being met by dead relatives, and experiencing intense feelings of peace and joy. This ‘otherworldly dimension’ is often described as having a tunnelled or tiered circular structure, such as we see in Botticini’s Assumption of the Virgin.Learn about Botticini’s vision of paradise with Gallery curator Minna Moore Ede and discover a possible neuroscientific explanation from Professor Colin Blakemore of the University of Oxford.For more information please visithttp://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/whats-on/calendar/heaven-in-mind-course-14-january-2016-11-00
