Dr. Debra Diamond – Diary of a Death Doula: 25 Lessons the Dying Teach Us About the Afterlife
Aired Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 5:00 PM PST / 8:00 PM EST
In the early 1960’s, one of the popular television shows was “Ben Casey”. Set in a hospital, the show would begin with actor Sam Jaffe’s character, Dr. Zorba, drawing traditional symbols on a black board and calling out their names, “Man, woman, birth, death, infinity.” In the west, when most of us are born, we are welcomed into the world with warmth, love and happiness. When it comes time for us to leave this world, we are most often surrounded with sadness, tears and fear.
Is there a way we can make the experience of death like an experience of birth? What lessons may we learn from transition that will change our perspective on death? Who may we turn to for the same loving care, comfort and security that we received entering this world as we do leaving it?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Debra Diamond, went from a high powered and successful Wall Street money manager to Death Doula through a series of remarkable experiences.
Following a high-profile career as a Wall Street Money Manager, Debra began her journey to a life of purpose and spirituality. She loves to assist people through Spirit and provide assistance, comfort and guidance through readings, consultations, her books and speaking engagements. She is a natural psychic/medium and medical intuitive who was gifted with her abilities as a child. She provides remarkable insights for her clients to assist in healing, expansion and transition.
Debra is the author of Life After Near Death: Miraculous Stories of Healing and Transformation in the Extraordinary Life of People With Newfound Powers. She has been featured in the Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Inc., The Huffington Post and NPR. Prior to her shift towards spirituality, Debra was a regular commentator on CNBC and a Professor at Johns Hopkins University.
