BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH

Between life and death, the gray zone, we’ve all heard the stories. On The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we explore that mysterious place between life and death with two people who are experts on the subject, world renowned neuroscientist Dr. Adrian Owen the author of a riveting new book INTO THE GRAY ZONE: A NEUROSCIENTIST EXPLORES THE BORDER BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH and Dr. Eban Alexander renowned academic neurosurgeon and author of PROOF OF HEAVEN, A NEUROSURGEON’S JOURNEY INTO THE AFTERLIFE.

In one of the most profound books of the year thus far, INTO THE GRAY ZONE, Dr. Adrian Owen takes his readers on a vivid, emotional, and thought-provoking journey in which he explores the little understood boundary between life and death. No cold scientific treatise this. INTO THE GRAY ZONE is a dazzling glimpse at a new frontier in our scientific understanding of the brain and the newly-discovered zones in the twilight region between full consciousness and brain death. His true-life characters and their tales of conscious or barely-conscious lives living on the border of life and death – and the heartbroken families having to make decisions about their care is at once fascinating, titillating and provocative. When Dr. Owen pushes forward the boundaries of science, he shockingly discovers that a sizeable number of patients previously thought to be vegetative or non-responsive – often victims of traumatic brain injuries, strokes, or degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s – are actually vibrantly alive, trapped in the gray zone.

BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATHDr. Eban Alexander is a renowned academic neurosurgeon who has spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. Having practiced fifteen years at the Brigham & Women’s and the Children’s Hospitals and Harvard Medical School in Boston, he thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. And then the doctor became the patient when Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. And just as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Dr. Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had come back to life, but only after he had experienced a transcendental Near-Death Experience … an NDE. He told his story in the controversial New York Times bestseller PROOF OF HEAVEN, A NEUROSURGEON’S JOURNEY INTO THE AFTERLIFE, which remained a bestseller for over sixty seven weeks, Alexander asserting his belief that there is an afterlife, and that consciousness is independent of the brain.

ADVENTURE TIME ON THE HALLI CASSER-JAYNE SHOW

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Join The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when we go on an adventure into the world of artist Andrew Wyeth and into the Honduran rain forest when two New York Times bestselling authors Christina Baker Kline and Douglas Preston join Halli at her table.

adventure with Douglas Preston The Lost City of the Monkey GodSince the days of conquistador Hernan Cortes, rumors have circulated about an ancient White City of immense wealth hidden in the Honduran interior. Indigenous tribes spoke of ancestors who had fled there to escape the Spanish, warning that anyone who disturbs this sacred city will fall ill and die. In THE LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD: A TRUE STORY Douglas Preston brings us the almost unbelievable, danger-filled narrative about the incredible discovery of the lost city and the life-threatening events that followed when Preston, along with a team of scientists ventured into the jungle on a pioneering journey filled with personal danger, venomous snakes, lethal pathogens and more. What happened to Preston on his return to civilization is even more harrowing than his trip into the rain forest. Preston is also the co-author with Lincoln Child of the famed series of novels featuring FBI agent Pendergast.

Adventure into Andrew WyethWriter Christina Baker Kline is best known for her beloved 2013 novel ORPHAN TRAIN. With more than three million copies in print, it has been published in 40 countries, appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years — five weeks at #1 new novel. Now she comes to us with the haunting, evocative novel A PIECE OF THE WORLD in which she turns her attention, as she did in ORPHAN TRAIN, to another little-known part of America’s history: the story of Christina Olson, the complex woman and real-life muse Andrew Wyeth portrayed in his 1948 masterpiece Christina’s World.

Adventure, art, books, authors, archaeology, there’s something for everyone on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 8. The new podcast will be posted 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
