Lisa Smartt - Words at the Threshold
Many of us have had the experience of a loved one share their thoughts as they approached transition. Some of what they share may be nostalgic, reminiscing about years gone by or practical concerning their wishes for final arrangements and unfinished business. Often though, the words shared may be quite different from the way the person communicated before approaching the end, reflecting a marked change in spirituality and an almost etheric approach to the new journey they were about to embark on.
My guest his week on Destination Unlimited, Lisa Smartt, experienced this personally with her father during the last three weeks of his life and it inspired her to establish the Final Words Project with world-renowned afterlife expert, Dr. Raymond Moody. Lisa is a linguist, educator, and poet. She co-facilitates workshops about language and consciousness with Raymond Moody at universities, hospices, and conferences and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Visit her online at http://www.finalwordsproject.org She shares this journey of discovery in her new book, Words at the Threshold: What We say As We’re Nearing Death.
