Description

Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Christopher Kerr, CEO and Chief Medical Officer at Hospice Buffalo, the creator of the incredibly viral TED Talk, “I See Dead People: Dreams and Visions of the Dying”, and the author of a brilliant, beautiful, and incredibly important book, “Death Is But A Dream” 

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about, about finding hope and meaning at life’s end, particularly at this time.

Key Points Discussed:

  • Would you say you used to be a spiritual guy and what happened the last time you saw your dad? (02:54 )
  • How he ended up going to the safest place from the dying as a career (05:02 )
  • The worse words one can say for somebody who’s dying and how the principle of non-abandonment is no longer valued (06:48 )
  • How he shifted from working as a resident in cardiology to work in hospice (09:08 )
  • Terminal lucidity and looking at dying as a post-traumatic growth experience (11:53 )
  • People die how they live (16:33 )
  • Sleep as the common denominator of all illnesses (19:36 )
  • Why dying seems lonely when it’s really not (22:42 )
  • Bridget and how she was spiting him with the pink spiders on the wall (26:18 )
  • The experiences (Dream and visions) that patients have when they’re dying (28:02 )
  • The story of Eliza and Nathan: How we see people die and how it changes how we experience loss and grief (33:16 )
  • The access to data from our lives that requires emotional tone and texture to reach (38:35 )
  • Do you think there is less suffering than we think at the end and more peace at the end as well? (42:43 )
  • What can you tell us about people who’ve had miscarriages? (45:43 )
  • The complicated grief surrounding Coronavirus deaths and the anticipatory peace to it (46:52 )
  • How to reach out and connect with our loved ones during this time (49:20 )
