An excerpt of Dr Greyson’s biography from his website (www.brucegreyson.com)

“Dr. Bruce Greyson is the Chester Carlson Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia.  He was previously on the medical faculty at the University of Michigan and the University of Connecticut, where he was Clinical Chief of Psychiatry. Dr. Greyson has consulted with the National Institutes of Health and addressed symposia on consciousness at the United Nations and at the Dalai Lama’s compound in Dharamsala, India. He has earned awards for his medical research and was elected a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, the highest honor bestowed by that organization.”

Dr Bruce Greyson is a world renowned expert, and the world’s leading researcher in the Near Death Experience and the variety of phenomena associated with it. He is a co-founder and ex-president of the International Association of Near Death Studies (IANDS), as well as the ex-editor of the Journal of Near Death Studies (JNDS). He has published more than 100 scientific articles in many highly praised peer reviewed journals on the subject looking at both the ‘paranormal’ possibilities and material possibilities at the cause and implications of the many thousands of experiences he has in his records.

He recently released his newest publication, “After: A Doctor Explores What Near-Death Experiences Reveal About Life and Beyond.”, a book aimed for the general public as opposed to his standard scientific publications.

In this episode, we look at Dr Greyson’s research, as well as the field of Near Death studies in general and explore the implications it has on our science of consciousness, life and death.
