Help With Fear of Death—Palliative Care Doctor & Author Dr. Sunita Puri

Are you afraid of potential eternal nothingness? Yeah...same. Death—and fear of it—is a topic I'm hoping to continually get some help with on this podcast. This week, I'm joined by Dr. Sunita Puri, palliative care doctor and author of That Good Night: Life and Medicine in the Eleventh Hour. Dr. Puri is refreshing in that she knows the science of death and dying—but is open to and a witness of just how much we don't know, leaving room for the spiritual or mystical. 

In this conversation, we talk about near-death experiences, what's happening in the brain during death, how to address the fear of dying, psychedelics, materialism vs. mysticism, and much more. This is a theme I plan to explore in more depth as the weeks (hopefully!) go on—but this conversation is a good launching pad. I hope you find some comfort in many of the things Dr. Puri had to say. I know I did.
