Samantha Lee Treasure
I became interested in the anthropology of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) after my own recurring experiences in 2009. I'm particularly interested in the future of OBEs and similar experiences.
My goal is to offer helpful information and answers to experiencers and the general public in an ethical, neutral and unbiased way, exploring the intricacies of these experiences without simplifying or packaging them.
Since 2013, I've delivered talks in Japan, the UK, Russia and the US on the culture and phenomenology of OBEs. I explored OBE figures in the UK for my BSc thesis, and spontaneous and deliberate OBEs in South Korea for my MA dissertation.
I am currently based between the London and Busan, South Korea.
