Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Feb 8, 2021

#155 You might have heard of a Near Death Experience before. But have you ever heard of a Near Life Experience? Dr. Jeff O’Driscoll is a spiritual mentor, speaker, author, artist, and healer and during our conversation today, he sheds light on many matters regarding the soul, including a Near Life Experience. We also discuss the higher self, Jeff’s experiences with spirituality during his time as an emergency physician, how he dealt with death, and how we can open ourselves up to spirituality and discover our soul’s purpose.

About Jeff: Jeff O'Driscoll, MD, practiced emergency medicine in a level-one trauma center for twenty-five years, and served as department chair for eight. Dr. O'Driscoll recently stepped away from practicing medicine to pursue consulting and to write. His recent books include a novel, Who Buried Achilles?, a series of children's books about Muck the Duck and friends, and his award-winning memoir, Not Yet, focusing on his spiritual encounters in the emergency department.
