Dannion Brinkley is an international New York Times best selling author of The Secrets of the Light, Saved by the Light, and At Peace in the Light. He is loved and respected worldwide for his inspirational lectures on the Near-Death Experience, Palliative and Hospice Care, Complementary and Alternative Healing Practices, and Self-Awareness. Since 1977, Dannion has worked diligently, looking for the best ways to integrate energetic, conventional and complementary therapies in modern day health protocols.
Having survived four brushes with death, and spending more than forty years as a hospice volunteer, with more than 35 years in VA hospitals across America, Dannion is an expert in the dying process. Both before, during, after, and coming back. He was struck twice by lightning and has since survived heart failure, two open-heart surgeries, five ruptured subdural hematomas, brain surgery, and a massive grand mal seizure.
What Dannion experienced in the that first lightning strike radically changed his life from a bully to a hospice and nursing home volunteer. He has been at the bedside of 2,010 people going from this world to the next, and over 348 people as the were taking their last breath, accruing more than 33,000 hours at the bedside.
