Is There Life After Death? With Dr Bruce Greyson

Season 4, Ep. 58

What happens when we die? It’s the question many of us ask. We’re joined by one of the world’s leading experts on Near-Death Experiences, Dr. Bruce Greyson, Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences and author of After: A Doctor Explores What Near-Death Experiences Reveal about Life and Beyond. 

Bruce has been studying NDEs for over 50 years. In this absolutely fascinating conversation, we talk about how Bruce came to study this topic, what he’s learned from studying thousands of cases, the stories that have blown him away, and why he’s no longer afraid of death.

We hope you enjoy it and that it brings you as much insight and comfort as it did us.

  • 101. A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife with Eben Alexander

    Harvard Neurosurgeon Eben Alexander joins us to share his incredible near-death experience and what it taught him about life. Eben is the author of several incredible books, including the bestselling Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife, which he joins us to talk about. In 2008, he was put into a medically induced coma after falling gravely ill with acute bacterial meningoencephalitis, which has a 90% mortality rate. What happened from there is against all odds. His neocortex was so damaged he should not have been dreaming or having any type of dream-like experience, yet he had an NDE. The experience profoundly altered his view of life and its meaning, and he shares his incredible story and many valuable lessons to inspire us all.Find out more about Eben here.Connect with usJoin our grief support membership waitlist here.Buy our book Good Mourning: Honest Conversations About Grief and Loss, here: linktr.ee/goodmourningpodcastCheck out our affirmation cards for grief and loss at www.goodmourning.com.auFollow us on Instagram at @goodmourningpodcastShare your story on My Tributes here
