Deeply understanding End-of-Life Experiences
In her presentation, Ineke Koedam, author of In the Light of Death: Experiences on the threshold between life and death explains how end-of-life experiences correspond to NDEs, what transcendent and final meaning experiences are, and the importance of understanding the process of dying as essential and precious to every human being.
Ineke describes the end-of-life experiences she learned about in her studies as well as in her personal and professional life. On behalf of prominent Neuropsychiatrist Peter Fenwick, Ineke researched these end-of-life experiences by interviewing fellow hospice workers in various hospices and bundled their experiences together in her book, In the light of death: Experiences on the threshold between life and death.
In In the Light of Death the author shows that these intensely spiritual experiences can be healing and often lead to transformation for the dying, their relatives, friends and carers, particularly if they can be understood and discussed before the process of dying begins. In the light of death is informative, comforting and helpful at a time when many people are afraid of dying.
This book is available at Amazon.
