Episode Overview:In this episode, my guest Sue Brayne and I address new ways to think, behave, live more consciously, and help others right to their very last breaths. We dive into different ways that near death/out-of-body experiences may change our quality of life and help us to better understand and cherish our own mortality.
We discuss how to make caring for someone we love a bit more comfortable for them, as well as us as caregivers. The episode also covers research on psychedelics being tested to comfort the terminally ill, and the positive impact that Death Cafés are having on the hearts and souls of so many around the world.
Yes, life is beautiful! Join me as Sue shows us how to live better with what we know and have now.
