William Peters -- Shared Death Experiences
Perhaps you’ve heard people talk about Near Death Experiences, the concept of crossing over and coming back, going “toward the light” and other similar examples. Have you heard of the profound concept of Shared Death Experiences? Today’s guest, William Peters, explains what this phenomenon means as people at the end of life experience a loving connection and communication beyond the human realm. He is recognized as a global leader in the field of shared death studies and has spent decades studying end-of-life experiences. He is the founder of the Shared Crossing Project and director of its Research Initiative. He will discuss particular studies and experiences with clients, as well as his latest book, “At Heaven's Door: What Shared Journeys to the Afterlife Teach About Dying Well and Living Better.” His findings are informed by his therapeutic work with individuals and families, personal experiences with death and dying across cultures, and his family’s own end-of-life journeys. Previously, Peters worked as a hospice volunteer with the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco and as a teacher and social worker in Central and South America. A practicing grief and bereavement therapist, he holds degrees from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and UC Berkeley. Info: sharedcrossing.com.
