We often think the mind is a creation of the brain, or that the mind and the brain are one and the same. But when the brain is offline for a number of reasons, like illness or injury, the mind can sometimes still be very active.
Cases of near-death experiences have been reported since ancient times, and are described by 10% of people whose hearts stop. The medical world has generally ignored these “near-death experiences,” dismissing them as “tricks of the brain” or wishful thinking.
In this week’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Bruce Greyson and Dr. Jim Tucker to talk about some of their most dramatic accounts of near-death experiences and stories of reincarnation from their patients. They share how these experiences can reveal a lot about dying and what might come after, and how they also reveal just as much about what makes a life meaningful and fulfilling.
Dr. Bruce Greyson is a Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the UVA School of Medicine. He was a co-founder and President of the International Association for Near-Death Studies, and Editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies. His award-winning research led him to become a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and to be invited by the Dalai Lama to participate in a dialogue between Western scientists and Buddhist monks in India. His book, AFTER, is the culmination of almost half a century of scientific research.
Dr. Jim Tucker is the Director of the UVA Division of Perceptual Studies, where he is continuing the work of Ian Stevenson with children who report memories of previous lives. He is the author of Before: Children’s Memories of Previous Lives, a new 2-in-1 edition of his books Life Before Life and Return to Life.

If I had to pick one supplement that has made the biggest difference in my overall health, it would be magnesium. I personally started taking magnesium to help with my sleep, especially when I travel, and it’s been super helpful. But I don’t take just any old magnesium, I take BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough. It contains 7 different forms of magnesium, which all have different functions in the body. I haven’t found anything else like it on the market. Right now, BiOptimizers is offering my community a few special bundles, just head over to magbreakthrough.com/dhru with code DHRU10.
