I have heard others talk about this type of phenomenon occurring at the deathbed before, but never really knew what to call it. This must happen more than others think since I personally know someone who has had such an experience happen to them.

My mom was taking a nap when she awoke with a strong urge to go visit her dying friend. When my mom got there she held her friends hand while a family member held the other hand. My mom said she felt a cold chill run through her, and then seen a little p...more

This is the book I most love, by Raymond Moody.

The fact that these are "SHARED" death experiences, however strange that may sound to an "unbeliever", is what makes these experiences more reliable.
The argument, often used by scientists, that whatever people tell about their NDE's is merely the result of the changing chemistry of their brain, at a moment of crises, falls apart when there are testimonies of shared NDE's sometimes by several members a one family, or even by members of the family and...more

Is it possible to share a loved one’s passing from this world to the next?

Dr. Moody has collected several stories of passings, when the dying person’s loved ones who are gathered around them accompanied their loved one part way on their trip to glory. Or their loved one shared the experience in s...more

This is a short little book with some new ideas about death but toward the end it tends to repeat the same subject matter over and over. I don't want to reveal the new ideas so you have a chance to read it for yourselves.

Interesting read about people that have experienced the passing of a loved one, in a spiritual sense, in different ways; some of them actually having out of body experiences and going toward the light with their loved one but then having to turn back, others hearing music, seeing a mist of the spirit rising out of the body at the point of death, others seeing previous loved ones coming to get their loved one that is passing over. The book is a big redundant in wording at times but the actual sto...more
I enjoyed reading this book and it helped me to understand some things. My dad died recently, but before he went he asked if we could see the people at the foot of his bed. We couldn't, but his eyes were focused as though he saw them. He also mentioned that his mom and dad had come over a hill to see him and then went away again. A few days earlier he had almost died from a drug interaction, so I assumed that is when he saw them. This book made me feel much better about the whole death experienc...more
For the kind of book that it was, it was well done. Nothing unexpected- just the data that Raymond Moody has collected, and his speculations. A good match to go with "Proof of Heaven".
Roberta Grimes
Raymond Moody has done it again! Having coined the term Near-Death Experience, he went on thirty-five years later to coin the term Shared Deathbed Experience. His research indicates that some of those sitting at the bedsides of the dying will see the visions of loved ones and even of the next levels of reality that the dying typically see, and some even leave their bodies and join the departing spirit on the first part of its journey. As with everything that Raymond Moody and Paul Perry write to...more
I will start by saying this is not an overtly religious book. While reading the book you can not really tell this is supposed to be a Christian book at all. The general idea of the book is telling you stories of people’s experiences around others that are dying.

Dr. Raymond Moody spends the majority of this book talking about people who have been around someone dying and going a little bit into death with them. He describes it as a shared death experience. He sites numerous people who say they ha...more

...even stronger evidence. Stronger, because during these shared death experiences, the geometric surroundings during the event coincide with the quantum theories of the true nature of reality.

I have not read his classic book called Life After Life(1975), but its on my reading list. I just want to first say this book was very interesting. I just felt that some of the experiences sounded the same but maybe thats the whole point to show case studies that have reliabilty. Everytime I read books like this, I think of Stephen in the Bible, who got stoned and saw parts of heaven and then died.
This is a scientific look into the "Shared" Death Experience or near death experience. I enjoyed the stories people told and the comprehensive look at each story and how each was similar. Worth the read if you just want to hear a little about the "here after" from a scientific approach.
Fascinating book. Thanks to C. for sharing her experience at her mother's deathbed and for encouraging me to check out this book. It sure gives me new ideas to ponder!
I didn't get to finish it. It was due back. But what I read I loved. It really gives you comfort about death, your own or your loved one's.

Great book! Dr. Moody signed my book after his lecture which I attended in St. Petersburg. He is a very nice man.
