X70: What Shared Journeys to the Afterlife Can Teach About Dying Well and Living Better with William Peters

By February 11, 2022One Comment

What is your relationship to death? What do you believe happens after we die? Or what about at the moment in time when someone crosses over? What if you could take part in the experience of a loved on crossing over?

Today, our guest is William Peters. He is an end-of-life therapist.

In 2000, he was volunteering at the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco when he had an extraordinary experience as he was reading aloud to a patient: he suddenly felt himself floating in midair, completely out of his body. The patient, who was floating beside him, looked at him and smiled. The next moment, Peters felt himself return to his body…but the patient never regained consciousness and died.

He was so stunned by what had happened, he began searching for other people who’d shared similar experiences and spent the next twenty years gathering their stories to identify key patterns and features of what is now known as the “shared crossing” experience.

We Will Learn

  • What can explain these shared death experiences.
  • How can we increase our likelihood of having one.
  • What these experiences tell us about what lies beyond.
  • And, most importantly, how can they help take away the sting of death and better prepare us for our own final moments?
  • How can we have both a better life and a better death?

Melissa, I so appreciate all your content but this episode couldn’t have arrived at a more unique time. My grandmother, who was on home hospice, passed away the day before you aired this. Two days before she passed away I had an incredibly vivid dream about her where I was able to say goodbye and hug her one last time. I felt so much closure in that dream…it was so real! Now hearing this interview I feel validated and certain that was my grandmother. Thank you ❤ you bring so much light to the world!!
