Psychiatrist Dr. Bruce Greyson, the world’s leading expert on near-death experiences, is here to discuss his new book ‘After’. In ‘After’ Dr. Greyson compiles and distills decades of research gathered from near death experiences as reported to him by people who ‘died’ and came back to tell their stories of what they saw on the ‘other side’. Dr. Greyson reveals this common phenomenon that can no longer be explained away or ‘swept under the rug’ and is now entering the legitimate world of scientific research. Our conversation will include what happened on the ‘other side’ and how these experiences changed the people who ‘lived’ it. What this means for the rest of us? The University of Virginia, Division of Perpetual Studies (DOPS) rigorously studies consciousness functioning outside the confines of the physical body, and phenomena that suggest continuation of consciousness after physical death, and before physical birth including reincarnation, mediumship, out of body experiences.
