Only one event which will affect all of us is dying. Within America we’ve experienced the medicalization of dying, treating dying being an enemy to become fought against and defeated no matter what. Indeed, the particular procedure for dying, the patients experience along the way, is totally overlooked in medical training.
Our guest today is Dr. Christopher Kerr, author from the new book, Death is However a Dream (https://amzn.to/3a0dqnO).
Dr. Kerr is really a hospice physician. All his patients die. Yet he’s looked after a large number of patients who, when confronted with dying, talk about love and elegance. Past the physical realities of dying are unseen processes which are remarkably existence-affirming. Included in this are dreams which are unlike any regular dream. Referred to as “more real than real,” these finish-of-existence encounters resurrect past relationships, replay significant occasions, and display styles of affection and forgiveness they restore life’s meaning and mark the transition from distress to comfort and acceptance.
Applying interviews with more than 1,400 patients and most ten years of quantified data, Dr. Kerr reveals that pre-dying dreams and visions are remarkable occurrences that humanize the dying process. He shares how his patients’ tales indicate dying as not exclusively concerning the finish of existence, but because the ultimate chapter of humanity’s transcendence. Kerr’s book also illuminates the advantages of these phenomena for that bereaved, who find solace in seeing themselves pass with a feeling of calm closure.
