Now That we Know,
What Can we Do? 

Death awareness is increasingly becoming a trendy topic, and this is great news for those of us who promote conscious dying and life beyond the physical body.  Legendary researchers like Dr. Raymond Moody and Dr. Melvin Morse opened that door for us in the 1970s, and contemporary figures like Eben Alexander and Anita Moorjani have shared their stories with eager audiences worldwide. 

Since the 70s we have collected an enormous body of evidence that validates NDEs, deathbed visions and after-death communication. But for experienced spiritual seekers, that's old news, and it's time for a new generation of teachings to take us to the next step.

What does that look like? How do we move beyond merely collecting evidence toward taking action?  Here are four suggestions
:

1. Become multi-cultural. Get familiar with afterlife accounts throughout history and across religions and cultures.  THIS VIDEO is a great place to start.  

2. If you're an author or spiritual teacher without traditional credentials (degrees, certifications, etc), get some alphabet soup after your name to add credibility to your platform. If you're a medium, get trained in grief counseling to enhance your helping skills and add mainstream benefits to mediumship. 

3. If you do have credentials -- as an academic or health care professional -- reach out to your professional community by offering classes on conscious dying, afterlife research or mystical traditions related to death and grief.

4. Explore beyond the "threshold" by learning about the deeper reaches of the afterlife by studying shamanism, out-of-body journeying, remote viewing and other tools for working in non-physical dimensions.
 
Going forward, we must be fiercely committed to education, validation and credibility. When Moody and Morse started out, there was no internet, so word spread slowly. But today, we can access everything we need -- research, education, history, spiritual development tools and more -- with the click of a mouse. And I propose that we move beyond the woo-woo into the world at large by working within the system as much as possible.

Five Ways to Improve Care at End of Life  
   

"G raduate medical education includes little training on the needs of patients in the last years or days of their lives. We need to create financial and professional incentives to expand the number of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, and other health care professionals who have the right training to effectively and compassionately provide end-of-life care." READ MORE...

Dr. Raymond Moody
and
Dr. Melvin Morse 
in Conversation




 
 
 
T wo of the world's pioneers in near-death research  
share eye-opening details about their work, 
how afterlife research is changing, and how Dr. Morse's 
recent experience in prison changed him.
 

Conversations: Redemption and Lessons of Love is a documentary film featuring a conversation between these two pioneers in afterlife studies. Over the past 40 years, both men contributed immeasurably to the body of knowledge about near-death experiences (NDE), bringing the topic into the mainstream and paving the way for continuing scientific research.

Dr. Moody is the world's leading authority on the near-death studies, and is credited with coining the term "near-death experience." Dr. Morse is a pediatrician whose research on the NDEs of children launched him to international prominence. In 2012, when Dr. Morse found himself a reluctant guest of the Delaware prison system, he learned the meaning of love from hardened criminals, and deepened his understanding of meditation and the importance of spiritual practice.

Conversations: Redemption and Lessons of Love
is scheduled for release this summer.

Advance orders receive a 25% discount.
