HOW TO FIND YOUR HAPPINESS. SUZANNE B. O’BRIEN RN INTERVIEWS AWARD WINNING NEW YORK TIMES JOURNALIST JOHN LELAND

July 16, 2019

author_photo_smiling.jpgIn this episode of "Ask a Death Doula," my guest, award winning New York Times journalist John Leland will talk about his latest book and what it truly means to be happy. This book is an extraordinary look at what it means to grow old and is a heartening guide to well-being. Happiness is a Choice You Make, weaves together the stories and wisdom of six New Yorkers who number among the “oldest old” ― those eighty-five and older.

My guest, John Leland, in his 30-plus years of professional journalism has gone from chronicling youth culture to writing about the “oldest old.” A graduate of Columbia College, he has worked as a senior editor at Newsweek and Editor-in-Chief of Details Magazine before joining The New York Times in 2000. In 2015, he wrote a year-long series following six people age 85 and up, which became the basis for his book “Happiness is a Choice You Make: Lessons from a year among the Oldest Old,” a New York Times bestseller. As he wrote in the Times, “No work I have ever done has brought me as much joy and hope or changed my outlook on life as profoundly.”

He is the author of two previous books: “Hip: The History” and “Why Kerouac Matters.”  

 

This interview includes:

  • What is happiness?
  • How gratitude can be your access point to a happy life
  • The transforming benefits of forgiveness
  • What is perception and the profound impact is has on your life
  • How you do not need to let past experiences define you
  • How you can choose to be happy

From private end of life consultations and public education about death to online coursework to train death doulas, she is tirelessly committed to bringing awareness to death and dying. She passionately believes considering death can inspire the way people live.  A jewelry addict, Alua is also a life lover, donut fanatic, and developing nation enthusiast.  She is inspired by LIFE, the little joys we can find even in dark times, the freedom of authenticity, and the power in the word YES.

Suzanne B. O’Brien, RN Talks Life, Death, and - Yes - Afterlife with Rev. Terri Daniels

Suzanne B. O’Brien, RN Talks Life, Death, and - Yes - Afterlife with Rev. Terri Daniels

April 25, 2019

terri.jpgIn this episode of "Ask a Death Doula," we talk all about the spiritual component of life, death, and yes-afterlife. My guest Rev. Terri Daniel, MA, CT is a clinical chaplain, end-of-life educator and trauma specialist certified in death, dying and bereavement by the Association of Death Education and Counseling. The focus of her work is to assist dying and grieving individuals to discover a more spiritually-spacious understanding of death and beyond.

 

Terri conducts workshops throughout the U.S. to help the dying and the bereaved find healing through meditative, ceremonial and therapeutic processes that focus on inner transformation rather than external events. Her work is acclaimed by physicians, hospice workers, grief counselors and clergy for its pinpoint clarity on the process of dying and grieving, and its heartfelt depiction of consciousness beyond the physical body.

 

Her unique form of "radical mysticism" incorporates elements of Buddhism, Shamanism, ancient pagan practices, Gnosticism and other spiritual traditions to break down limiting beliefs about forgiveness, divine judgment, and negative experience. 

 

Terri has a BA in Religious Studies from Marylhurst University, an MA in Pastoral Care & Counseling from Fordham University, and is currently doing doctoral research on spirituality and grief at the San Francisco Theological Seminary.

 

She is the author of three books on death and the afterlife and is also the founder of the annual Afterlife Awareness Conference.  

 

About The Afterlife Conference

 

The Afterlife Education Foundation was launched by Terri Daniel in 2010 because, at the time, the survival of consciousness beyond physical death wasn't adequately represented in traditional forums such as scientific or bereavement conferences. Motivated by a desire to share that knowledge, the first conference was produced in 2011. The conference is now in its 9th year and draws attendees from all over the world. It is held in a different U.S. city each year, and in June 2019 it will be held in Salt Lake City, UT. For details, please visit www.AfterlifeConference.com
