*VIRTUAL* Author Talk: Dr. Christopher Kerr, Death is But a Dream
August 10, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Experiences at the end of life testify to our greatest needs: to love and be loved, to be nurtured and feel connected, to be remembered, and forgiven. Christopher Kerr is a hospice doctor. All of his patients die. Yet he has tended to thousands of patients who, in the face of death, speak of love, meaning, and grace. They reveal that there is hope beyond cure as they transition to focus on personal meaning.
In this extraordinary and beautiful book, Death is But a Dream, Dr. Kerr shares his patients’ stories and his own research pointing to death as not purely the end of life, but as a final passage of humanity and transcendence.
Drawing on interviews with over 1,200 patients and more than a decade of published research, Dr. Kerr reveals why pre-death dreams and visions are remarkable events that bring comfort and exemplify human resilience. His TEDx Buffalo talk has received more than 4.6M views and his research on end-of-life experiences are the focus of a Netflix documentary series, “Surviving Death” as well as a PBS documentary.
