Raymond Moody is the foremost expert on the phenomenon of near-death experience, as well as a compelling lecturer on the subjects of evocation of the deceased, cult activities, out-of-body experiences, the paranormal and the relationship of the paranormal to the performing arts, and the interconnections between humor and health. He has appeared on several national television programs as an expert guest about these subjects. He holds both a PH. D. from the University of Virginia and an M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia. An award winning author and scholar, Dr. Moody received the World Humanitarian Award in Denmark in 1988, as well as a bronze medal in the Human Relations Category at the New York Film Festival for the movie version of Life after Life. An impassioned researcher, Moody first became interested in the phenomenon of near-death experiences during his medical training. Since that time, he has written seven books about the subject and created the Dr. John Dee Memorial Theater of the Mind, a facility that enables people to experience altered states of consciousness for the purposes of education, entertainment and spiritual advancement.

Lisa Smartt is a linguist, educator, and author of Words at the Threshold. The book is based on data collected through The Final Words Project, an ongoing study devoted to gathering and interpreting the mysterious language at end of life. Lisa has co-facilitated presentations with Dr. Raymond Moody about language and consciousness at universities, hospices and conferences.

When her father became terminally ill with cancer, Lisa Smartt began transcribing his conversations and noticed that his personality underwent inexplicable changes. Once a skeptical man with a secular worldview, he developed a deeply spiritual outlook in his final days — a change that was reflected in his language. Baffled, intrigued, and compelled by her linguistics training, Smartt grabbed pencil and paper and tracked his final words.

The inquiry that began with her father’s language went on to become the Final Words Project, in which Smartt collected hundreds of final words, which she analyzed for their linguistic patterns and themes. She collected accounts and transcripts from health-care providers, friends, and family members of the dying and gathered over fifteen hundred English utterances, which ranged from single words to complete sentences, from those who were a few hours to a few weeks from dying..

“My research of four years indicates that my father was not alone in experiencing metaphorical and nonsensical changes in language, seeing visions of angels, and making references to another dimension in his final days,” writes Smartt. “The words at the threshold suggest to me that consciousness does indeed survive, and that we ourselves can be both guides and tourists as we journey with those we love to the portal.”

Life After Life: Dr. Raymond Moody & Lisa Smartt

November 4, 2018 By Eileen Williams Leave a Comment

As long as there have been rational humans walking the earth, mankind’s greatest mystery has remained the same: is there life after life?

Dr. Raymond Moody was the very first mainstream doctor to broach the subject in his groundbreaking work, Life After Life, published in 1975.  As a physician, Moody had long been interested in accounts of patients who had returned from a Near Death Experience (NDE) with stories of their journey to an afterlife.

Lisa Smartt is the founder of the Final Words Project and author of Words at the Threshold. Lisa is a linguist and educator who is helping to unlock clues to understanding the mysterious language that is commonly spoken at the end of life.

These two incredible pioneers as well as other leaders in the field of “The Hereafter” are coming together to create The University of Heaven—and amazing new opportunity to learn more about the journey each of us will inevitable take. They are joining us to share all about it.




Whether you adhere to an organized religion, consider yourself an agnostic or believe in a Universal Spirit, you’ll want to check out this extraordinary glimpse into the afterlife… so be sure 

Raymond A. Moody, Jr. (born June 30, 1944) is a philosopherpsychologistphysician and author, most widely known for his books about life after death and near-death experiences (NDE), a term that he coined in 1975 in his best-selling book Life After Life.[1] Raymond Moody’s research purports to explore what happens when a person dies.[2] He has widely published his views on what he terms near-death-experience psychology.[3]

Education and early career


Moody earned a BA (1966), M.A. (1967) and a PhD (1969) in philosophy from the University of Virginia. He also obtained a PhD in psychology from the University of West Georgia, then known as West Georgia College, where he later became a professor in the topic.[4] In 1976, he was awarded an M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia.[5]

After obtaining his M.D., Moody worked as a forensic psychiatrist in a maximum-security Georgia state hospital. In 1998, Moody was appointed Chair in Consciousness Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Near-death research[edit]

While an undergraduate at the University of Virginia in 1965, Moody encountered psychiatrist, Dr. George Ritchie, who told Moody about an incident in which he believed he had journeyed into the afterlife while dead for nearly nine minutes at the age of 20 (which Ritchie would later recount in his book, Return From Tomorrow, published in 1978). Moody began documenting similar accounts by other people who had experienced clinical death and discovered that many of these experienced shared common features, such as the feeling of being out of one’s body, the sensation of traveling through a tunnel, encountering dead relatives, and encountering a bright light. In 1975, Moody published many of these experiences in his book, Life After Life, in which he coined the term “near-death experience.”

In an interview with Jeffrey Mishlove, Moody shared his personal conclusions about his research into near-death experiences:

I don’t mind saying that after talking with over a thousand people who have had these experiences, and having experienced many times some of the really baffling and unusual features of these experiences, it has given me great confidence that there is a life after death. As a matter of fact, I must confess to you in all honesty, I have absolutely no doubt, on the basis of what my patients have told me, that they did get a glimpse of the beyond.[6]
