Lisa Smartt is an author of best-selling books, a poet, and a linguist. Lisa’s research on the Final Words Project has broken new ground. Realizing that her father’s language went through a personality change when he was close to dying, Lisa decided to research a missing area of our knowledge base: the language of the dying. Her book, Words at the Threshold catalogues and analyzes some of the patterns of liminal language. Since 2013, she has worked closely with Raymond Moody (who coined the phrase and conducted initial research on Near Death Experiences and who is the author of the book Life After Life). In this podcast, we also talk about the many little deaths each of us go through in life - when relationships end, when circumstances throw us off, and when we lose someone. Ultimately, we talk about the potential for transformation when we - again - find, and connect to, the light.
