In This Episode we share the journey of Gerry Murphy a man who faced a unique near death experience after spending 5 days in an ICU in NYC. He was Isolated, not allowed food or water, he was not coherent or comprehending enough to communicate with his loved ones, and too scared to go to sleep in case he didn't wake. We’re going to learn how he used his love for music to elevate his spirit, mend his heart and realize what was really important in life. Gerry describes his medical trauma in great detail — a completely isolated five-day stay in the ICU, separated from his wife and children. Gerry’s near-death experience, where he felt as though he was “signing his life away”, forever changed the way he lives. Gerry encourages everyone to “practice” death, meaning that if we stop to truly think about our ending, we might find the urgency in changing the way we live. In doing this, he believes we are all given a second chance to create the life and legacy we want. more at
