How can we change the way we think about dying and death? Can we build a new relationship with loved ones who have passed?
Iris Paxino, psychologist and professional counselor, has spent her adult life exploring near-death experiences. In this book she shares insights from her studies, as well as her own personal thoughts on dying, near-death experiences, and life after death.
Paxino leads the reader through the process of dying and the moment of death and goes on to explore different aspects of death, from fear of death, to meeting with Christ, to materialistic and atheist outlooks. These thoughtful insights help readers to understand more about death and dying, as well as the journey of the soul after life, leading to the possibility of a new connection with lost loved ones.
'In this deeply insightful book, Iris Paxino relates
her extensive experiences of working therapeutically with both the bereaved and the deceased with great sensitivity and clarity, offering a new understanding of the dimensions of life and death.'

'This book is of such a great value... It has given me more openness towards what you actually and individually can give and receive by crossing the bridges, and reminded me how often we are surrounded by our loved ones from beyond the threshold. It has brought me an awareness of all the possibilities of what we can do for them and what we can do to prepare ourselves before we die. I feel gratitude for having been shown these opportunities to cross the bridges over and over again in the way that Iris Paxino has shared with her readers.'
