Welcome to Life After Life Institute for Learning!

“We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We are made of star stuff.”
~Carl Sagan

Life After Life is the official website of Dr. Raymond Moody named for his groundbreaking book published in 1975. The website is an online educational platform committed to offering courses and resources about near-death, shared-death and after-death experiences. The website content is curated by Dr. Raymond Moody and Lisa Smartt, MA, researchers in the field of consciousness studies. Other pioneering investigators will join us, offering insights into afterlife experiences and those associated with the transpersonal dimensions of grief and dying. The intention of the site is to foster greater compassion and insight and offer tools that will allow all of us to bring a little heaven to earth.

The NDE Consciousness Forum


For the first time ever, and seen nowhere else, I interview the very people who changed my mind about the survival of consciousness. Learn about the convincing research and the astonishing accounts that strongly point to a life after life. Included with the recorded interviews are book excerpts from guests along with experiential exercises. 



Over 7 hours of interviews, book excerpts, exercises and meditations, and a bonus special recorded Q & A webinar.

The Science of NDEs

Bestselling author and pediatrician Dr. Melvin Morse has played an important role in validating Dr. Moody’s findings through his groundbreaking research into the near-death experiences of children.

In this presentation, Morse answers the question, “Are NDEs real?” by sharing what he has discovered about the science of these extraordinary phenomenon.  In this compelling recording, Dr.  Morse demonstrates that science and spirituality are not mutually exclusive as he provides a wide range of evidence that, indeed, near-death experiences are much more than tricks of the brain.



This recorded presentation will change your view of both science and spirituality.

The 2nd Annual NDE Summit

The 2nd Annual NDE Summit

Join Tricia for this inspiring and informative collection of 13 interviews followed up by a recorded Q & A where viewers’ questions are answered.

Tricia Barker had a powerful near-death experience after a car accident took her life. The experience inspired her to write Angels in the OR  about the world she encountered beyond this one that included a beautiful river, like the one in the image above.

In this series of interviews, Tricia speaks with David Ditchfield, who was killed by a train and returned to life to compose a beautiful symphony revealed to him through his experience, and Tony Ciccoria, an MD, who also returned with a new musical gift. Hear the story of  Lesley Lupo whose NDE brought her insight into how our souls guide our lives on earth, and of other near-death experiencers who were transformed by their afterlife experiences and are now healers, artists, and teachers who have brought a little heaven back to earth for all of us to enjoy.

The summit also includes conversations with researchers as to what the science tells us about the NDE. These include Dr. Raymond Moody, Paul Perry, Lisa Smartt, and Dr. Jeffrey Long whose research into over 3,000 people who have died and returned to life offer an in-depth overview of this fascinating phenomenon. 



For the complete package of 13 interviews with book excerpts, guided meditations, exercises followed up by a recorded Q & A session.
