Life After Life is a documentary based on the book written by psychiatrist Raymond Moody. It is a report on a qualitative study in which Moody interviewed 150 people who had undergone near-death experiences (NDEs). It presents the author’s composite account of what it is like to die. On the basis of his collection of cases, Moody identified a common set of elements in NDEs:
- an overwhelming feeling of peace and well-being, including freedom from pain.
- the impression of being located outside one’s physical body.
- floating or drifting through darkness, sometimes described as a tunnel.
- becoming aware of a golden light.
- encountering and perhaps communicating with a “being of light”.
- having a rapid succession of visual images of one’s past.
- experiencing another world of much beauty.
