Survival of the Kindest: Prof Allan Kellehear – Compassionate Encounters
“The dead are also grieving – they miss you”
We are back this week with Professor Allan Kellehear to discuss the release of his new book Visitors at the End of Life. Allan’s refusal to go into the categorisation of the visions and his focus on what they mean, and what they offer gives a moving look at who they are, what we can learn from these encounters, what to expect from them, and how they make people feel.
Allan’s research was the first trans-cultural study done on these visitations, and as such it offers a new perspective; these are common, and as he says ‘a sign of strength and wellness’ the world over, rather than a western phenomena indicative of mental unrest.
