What Happens When We Die?

Dr. Raymond Moody is a researcher and international bestselling author who coined the term "near death experience." In this excerpt from Paul Perry's film Afterlife, Moody discusses what he has learned in over five decades of research. 


In 1975, Dr. Raymond Moody published the book Life After Life. In it, he described the astonishing accounts of those who died and came back to life.

An agnostic and a skeptic, he continued researching phenomena associated with death, dying and grief, but after fifty years was not persuaded that an afterlife existed.

But then recently, a handful of doctors who had remarkable near death and shared death experiences offered their evidence.They gathered together with Dr. Moody to share their perspectives at the NDE Consciousness Forum. He was convinced by what he heard.

How about you?


Dr. Mary Neal


Dr. Mary Neal found herself pinned underwater after her kayak went over a waterfall. As her body was dying, she found herself experiencing the meaning of her life with great clarity and love that she brought back to her understanding of this world.

In this excerpt, Neal speaks to how science and spirituality complement each other even as many of us are taught that we must choose between them.


Dr. Eben Alexander


Dr. Eben Alexander had a near death experience while in a medically induced coma. Although scientifically trained and skeptical of such occurrences, his NDE convinced him that consciousness survives.

In this video excerpt, Dr. Alexander talks about the "world-view shattering" quality of the NDE. Neither his Methodist upbringing nor his scientific training adequately prepared him for what he discovered beyond the veil.
