How Near-Death and Shared-Death Experiences Influence Our Life Experience

Broadcast on October 31, 2022
With Jeff O’Driscoll, MD & Jeffery C. Olsen
Hosted by William Peters, MA

Choosing joy after a tragic loss is challenging. Near-death and shared-death experiences (NDEs and SDEs) assist us in seeing life and relationships from a higher perspective. Trusted friends are also key to our health and happiness. Jeffery C. Olsen and Dr. Jeff O'Driscoll will discuss what happens during near-death and shared-death experiences, and how they have influenced the lives of those who have subsequently lived to tell the tale. These experiences are profound, but the most important key for people who have “died” is how to navigate life once they return from beyond the veil.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • What happens to a patient in the ER, and also to a stable patient who is near death
  • What we can learn from these experiences
  • How we can apply these learnings in our everyday lives

During his 25 years as an academically oriented emergency physician, Dr. Jeff O’Driscoll experienced phenomena that science couldn’t explain, such as seeing souls leave their bodies at death, and communicating with them. His experiences began in childhood, after his brother died in a farm accident. After stepping away from clinical medicine, Jeff published his award-winning memoir, Not Yet. Now, as an international speaker and intuitive mentor, he connects souls to their highest selves and their most authentic life paths.
