Le NDE sono esperienze non patologiche complesse di tonalità trascendente, che avvengono in condizioni critiche con pericolo per la sopravvivenza. Sebbene NDE e ipnosi appaiano come fenomeni del tutto diversi, sono individuabili alcuni rilevanti elementi comuni, quali la grande serenità e benessere, le modificazioni o la perdita della percezione del tempo, l’immaginazione plastica, l’emersione di ricordi non facilmente accessibili ed esperienze di tonalità mistica e di uscita dal corpo. Il potenziale trasformativo delle NDE è inoltre in linea con le potenzialità terapeutiche dell’ipnosi.


Keywords: Ipnosi, esperienze di premorte, morte, stati alterati di coscienza, epistemologia, resilienza
