Interfaith Clinical Chaplain, Grief & Trauma Counselor, Author, Founder of The Afterlife Conference
more about this meeting…
Dr. Daniel is the founder of the original Afterlife Conference, which is now in its tenth year and is coming to Chicago June 4-7, 2020. She is a clinical chaplain, certified trauma professional and end-of-life educator certified in death, dying and bereavement by the Association of Death Education and Counseling. The focus of her work is to assist dying and grieving individuals to discover a more spiritually-spacious understanding of death and beyond. She will speaking on “Near-Death Experience: Now That We Know, What Should We Do?”
We’ve heard the stories and we’ve read the research. We know consciousness continues after the body dies, and we, as a culture, have been intellectually and spiritually elevated by learning about these life-altering experiences. So what’s next? How do we teach and support a metaphysical understanding of birth, death and beyond?
In this thought-providing presentation, we will examine our role as “sacred activists,” and explore the ways in which we can serve as teachers and advocates for death awareness and consciousness studies.
Dr. Daniel is the author of four books on death and the afterlife:
- Swan in Heaven: Conversations Between Two Worlds (2007)
- Embracing Death: A New Look at Grief, Gratitude and God (2010)
- Turning the Corner on Grief Street: Loss and Trauma as a Journey to Awakening (2014)
- Grief and God: When Religion Does More Harm Than Healing (2019)
Two of these books were written with the participation and help of her deceased son, Danny.
On March 15, Terri will also be giving an intense workshop on grief. See more on this site or go directly to www.Chicagoiands.Eventbrite.com to register and purchase tickets.
