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

ErikDr.EbenandBookProofofHeavenIn an unusual 90 minutes, Wednesday, August 26, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser–Jayne Show explores the controversial topic of Life after Death when joining Halli at her table are Dr. Eben Alexander, Dr. Elisa Medhus, Jamie Butler and the late Erik Medhus.

Dr. Eben Alexander is a renowned academic neurosurgeon who practiced fifteen years at the Brigham & Women’s and the Children’s Hospitals and Harvard Medical School in Boston who thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. And then Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. For seven days he lay in a coma and had a transcendental Near-Death Experience (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.

ErikBookcoverElisa Medhus, MD is a physician and a mother of five who has practiced internal medicine for over thirty years. After the death of her twenty-year-old son Erik by suicide, Dr. Medhus began journaling her grief in her blog ChannelingErik.com. A strong believer in science, she formerly viewed spiritual matters with skepticism. And then her late son Erik began to communicate with family, friends, and blog members, her entire paradigm shifted. She wrote the story in the wildly successful MY SON AND AFTERLIFE. Now she has written her introduction to her late son’s new book, MY LIFE AFTER DEATH, A MEMOIR FROM HEAVEN.

As long as Jamie Butler can remember she has been able to see the lights surrounding people and inanimate objects, what she refers to as energy fields. Along with seeing energy, she sees spirits making her a clairvoyant and hearing them as a clairaudient. In the new book MY LIFE AFTER DEATH, A MEMOIR FROM HEAVEN by Erik Medhus with his mother Dr. Elisa Medhus, the reknowned medium channeled the words of the late Erik Medhus. She will talk to him on The Halli Casser Jayne Show.

ErikhimelfErik Medhus suffered from bipolar disorder and other ailments. At age 20 he took his own life with a bullet to the brain. He frequently visits family members and participants in his mom’s blog.

Is there life after death? Can we communicate with the dead? A conversation you won’t soon forget on The Halli Casser–Jayne Show, Wednesday, August 26, 2015 . For more information visit Halli CasserJayne dot com.

Dr.MalkinpictureforSelfishessThe authors of two provocative books Peter Schwartz, IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE and Dr. Craig Malkin, RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL join Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET.

Dr.MalkinBookInDfenseofSelf-ShnessPeter Schwartz is a retired Chairman of the Board of Directors, and currently a Distinguished Fellow of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is the founding editor and publisher of The Intellectual Activist. In his challenging new book IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE, Schwartz explores the question: What if altruism is in fact, at the heart of the social conflicts that plague us today?

Dr.MalkinBookcoverIs there a “narcissism epidemic?”  In his eye-opening new book RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL, Dr. Craig Malkin—author, clinical psychologist, and Instructor of Psychology for Harvard Medical School —offers a radically new model for understanding what he asserts is an often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a spectrum of self-importance— and everyone falls somewhere on the scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance. Currently, Dr. Malkin can be seen on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, which is running a series about RETHINKING NARCISSISM.

For the “Me Generation” and “The Millennials” who have been branded “the most narcissistic generation ever,” and those interested in the Libertarian creed authors Peter Schwartz and Dr. Craig Malkin tackle the good and bad of narcissism and selfishness, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
