Alexis meets Dannion Brinkley and family on-location in Los Angeles to discuss the big subject of “The Afterlife!”

In 1975, Dannion Brinkley was struck and killed by lightning. When he awoke twenty-eight minutes later in a morgue, everything was different. And they have remained different ever since.  While his bestselling book, Saved by the Light published in 1995 documents this incredible story, the work that he and his family are now doing with hospice to share their incredible experiences with the dying are one by one, changing our understanding about life and the afterlife.  I sat down with Dannion, his wife Kathryn and daughter Alixandra to learn of the amazing gifts they are giving to so many who are facing their final days on earth and what to expect once they themselves have crossed over into the light.  This interview was a very moving experience for me.  Listen for yourself as Dannion, Kathryn and Alixandra each talk about their own unique journeys and how sharing their gifts with others have truly become a family affair.

This interview was conducted on site in Los Angeles at the Conscious Life Expo in February of 2013.
