Dr. Wayne W. Dyer was an internationally renowned author and speaker in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth. Over the four decades of his career, he wrote more than 40 books, including 21 New York Times bestsellers.

In Autumn’s Cocoon by Barbara Morningstar

In Autumn’s Cocoon was created to offer end of life education to the public and professionals.  We are often taught the mechanics of death, dying and grief, but not how to prepare for the impact on our hearts and humanity.

NDERF - home pageFrom the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation Website:


If enough people read about love, peace and hope; maybe they can change to become more loving, compassionate people who truly live their lives without fear.

We can then change the world to become a better place like heaven on earth – as above, so below.

In her book, The Power of Pets: 7 Tools to Heal from Grief, she says, “I believe that deep within our hearts, we genuinely understand that death is a part of life.
