"Shared Crossing" Experiences with William Peters

In 2000, end-of-life therapist William Peters was volunteering at the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco when he had an extraordinary experience as he was reading aloud to a patient: he suddenly felt himself floating in midair, completely out of his body. The patient, who was also aloft, looked at him and smiled. The next moment, Peters felt himself return to his body…but the patient never regained consciousness and died. Peters then spent the next 20 years searching for and researching other people who’d shared similar experiences – what he calls a “shared crossing.” Listen in as I interview Peters about his new book, At Heaven’s Door, which provides powerful stories of shared crossings, as well as explores why this phenomenon happens and what lies beyond death.
