"Are They Really Gone?; Alchemy of Science and Spirit"
Today I am sharing my conversation with Lenore Matthew PhD, MSW. She is a researcher/practitioner from the field of social work, as well as a young widow and a survivor of suicide loss of her husband. Prior to her loss, Dr. Matthew worked as an expert of advocacy and program evaluation for organizations across the globe, including the United Nations. She has presented her research and advocacy widely at institutions such as Harvard Medical School.
Since losing her husband, her interests have shifted to trauma and traumatic loss, and healing through a mind, body, and spirit connection. She recently established the Alchemy of Science and Spirit, a project that melds science and empirical data with the exploration of intuition and the afterlife, to heal trauma and grief. Upon losing her husband, Dr. Matthew's own intuitive gifts of psychic intuition and mediumship awoke, as she immediately began receiving messages from her husband from the afterlife.
She is currently training with leading mediums in the US and the UK, and aims to bring her mediumship into her healing practice as well as her advocacy, normalizing the less-talked about aspects of loss, including communicating with our loved ones in spirit.
