Filming this interview with Dannion Brinkley was to experience being in the prescence of love-and not some phony imitation of love either, but the real thing, which I felt as a combination of joy, humor, warmth, openness and the simple, straightforward truth about life and death.
For me, it provided an opportunity to ask of one who has died and returned, such questions as "what is it like over there?", "how does it feel to die?", "why is there suffering?" and "how can we live through these times that are so often frightening and unsettling?"
As it is in Heaven answers these questions and many more. Illustrated by images from our own lives-hospice patients we have cared for, beloved family members we hope to meet again when it comes our time to cross over, and places we have traveled-it is interwoven with the incredibly beautiful music of Andreas Vollenweider. We hope it brings you the peace, inspiration and love that it brought to us as we worked to produce it.
