A PHENOMENOLOGICAL STUDY ON OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE (OBE)

The out-of-body experience (OBE) is the transcendental experience where the person's self and body are phenomenologically separate, typically involves a sensation of floating outside his/her body and to see the world from a location outside the physical body. The OBE, however, often includes the experience on moving outside the confines of body and space all the while remaining aware of her/his unmoving physical body.

The present study aims to overlook the perspectives on out-of-body experience (OBE) among the participants. In the manner, this research uses a qualitative phenomenological approach so as to uncover the subjective meaning of OBE.

Generally, the participants reports some fatigues and lassitudes as the physical effects of OBE.
