Embracing the Mystery with Jeff Spiess, MD

Research reveals that “the most common cause of death is being alive.” (I love that quote!)  In this episode I have a lovely conversation with Dr Jeff Spiess about his work as a hospice physician and his new book, Dying with Ease: A Compassionate Guide to Making Wiser End of Life Decisions.


In this episode, Jeff discusses:

  • How working with the terminally ill inspired him to write his new book
  • How dying conflicts with the American cultural worldview
  • Why it’s important to die well
  • The greatest gift you can give someone who’s dying
  • The role of willpower at the end of life
  • Psilocybin studies
  • Spirituality
  • Atheism
  • Assisted suicide
  • Practical tips to prepare for end of life
  • The importance of communication
  • Resources:
