Raymond will also share the remarkable story between emergency department physician Jeff O'Driscoll, and Jeff Olsen, a patient, that transformed his thinking about the afterlife.
Psychotherapist, founder of Shared Crossing Project and author of At Heaven's Door
William is the director of the Shared Crossing Research Initiative, the only research institute dedicated to the study of shared death experiences. Hear how William took the foundational work of Dr. Moody and developed the typologies to provide a greater understanding for this transformational end of life experience. William will share his own formative SDEs from his time as a volunteer at the Zen Hospice project.

What People are Saying
Raymond is one of the most brilliant men I have met. He blazed the trail for so many. It was a great honor to study with him. At 77 years old, he is a living legend. I would strongly recommend taking a course with the great maestro of death, dying and grief recovery.

William, it goes without saying (I hope) how grateful I am to you for helping me navigate those treacherous and painful years after Mike’s death. I learned so much. I guess it is indeed true that grief is one of our greatest teachers and you guided me along that path as well as helping me understand the mystery of the afterlife.
About Your Presenters
Dr. Raymond Moody, MD, PhD, is a philosopher, psychiatrist, physician and author, most widely known for his books about afterlife and near-death experiences (NDEs), a term that he coined in 1975 in his best-selling book Life After Life. For half a century, he has researched some of life’s greatest mysteries and had a strong interest in how medical realities intersect with the ineffable realm of philosophy. In his multiple roles as author, professor, public speaker and grief counselor, he has heard thousands of accounts of near-death, shared-death and after-death experiences. He never expected that his interest in the afterlife would become such a focus of his life’s work, but it has led him to great associations, friendships and insights.
