Product Description

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.

-Cindy Pickard, coproducer.

Review

"an intriguing perspective from an interesting man" -- NAPRA Review

...a beautifully made film with emotion...Dannion as always, is engaging and wide-open with his humanity. I am sure this film will help many people who face death, whether it be their own or that of a loved one. -- Peter Shockey, producer of Life After Life

I am so very glad that I gave in to my curiousity, and ordered this video. I've only had it a couple of days, and already I've watched it four times. Once I had seen it, I had to show it to three friends I thought would enjoy/benefit/be entertained by it. Right on all counts. It made us all laugh and cry. It touched us all deeply, and each time I watched it, I was further moved by it. Dannion Brinkley is truly refreshing and genuine. He talks of his near death experiences in such a down-to-earth, matter-of-fact waythat they are easy to digest, and easy to accept. Whether or not one agrees with everything he has to say, it is almost impossible to ignore the love and practical advice this man has to offer.I am inspired to do more, care more, laugh more and love more just by watching this delightful short interview. I have never had a great fear of death, but would suggest this could be of immense help for those who have. For entertainment value alone, I would give this five stars, but it is so much more than that. Thank you, Dannion Brinkley, for your humour, your vulnerability and your wisdom. This is a gem of a video.I know I'll be watching it and sharing it with friends in times yet to come.

Sorry to have to give this one a bad review but it is necessary. I have been a fan of Dannion's for a long time. The interview is interesting if you have never heard anything about or from him but this video could have been so much more. Here you have one of the most interesting people on earth and this video, I believe, was shot in a hotel room in front of a large glass window with people constantly walking by. That was distracting.
Dannion did generally outline and talk about his experiences but there was little visual imagery to back it up. I have seen several pieces on him that were done for TV that were better. Although the story of his life is fascinating, he is just sitting in a chair and telling about it. There are a few cut-aways to home movies of him growing up, etc but there is not much dept there. His abilities can amaze you when he is having a good reading with someone. This video did not show an example or delve into that very much. ...

This is an incredibly moving video.

Set and setting are unimportant. It is the content that makes this hour of viewing both delightful, informative, entertaining and enlightening.

Dannion Brinkley is always a pleasure. He is authentic, irreverent, humorous, kind and wonderfully vulnerable. He brings to the subject of life and death a great wisdom, and valuable knowledge.

As a health care professional, I have used this video countless times to alleviate the fear of those with terminal conditions, and it always has positive impact, and has given relief to many. Every time I watch it, I hear something that I missed, or understand something more deeply. It always moves me to laughter and tears.

Heartfelt thanks to Dannion for doing what he does with such love.

Don't miss this one. It's a gem!

As it is in Heaven: an interview with Dannion Brinkley, had such excellent content. But production/execution was poor. Dannion and producers needed to spend an extra $20 and put up a backdrop. It is sloppy and distracting to see vacationers constantly walking in the background of what appears to be a cruise ship or hotel. I kept trying to figure out if any of these distractions served a purpose or tied to Dannion's message. They didn't! It was just bad cinematography.

If subject or content is serious, then be serious with the peripherals.

Dannion is too good a speaker with too powerful a message to settle for sloppy production.
