#25 Dying Into Life: Interview with Sahar Ghamati Shokoufandeh, Ph.D.



In this episode Kim and Teresa talk with Sahar Ghamati Shokoufandeh, Ph.D., author of Dying Into Life.  Sahar discusses how her meditations on death helped her to not only lose her fear of death but to learn how to live a happier, more fulfilled, authentic life.  


On the journey to understanding death and facing her fears, Sahar Ghamati Shokoufandeh, Ph.D. noticed a synchronicity between people who are near the end of their Earthly time or have had a near death experience, in all cultures and religions. They all can finally perceive the truth of life through accepting death.

Death is not an end to anything, just the doorway to our ultimate destination which is our soul’s combined different realities. By embracing this knowledge, we can be reborn into the beauty of our true self and finally live with love and peace.

Dying into Life gives you the insight on the complexities of your spiritual being living in a physical world, and leads you to the practice of love, peace and joy.
