Event Description

Christopher W. Kerr, M.D., Ph.D., will discuss fascinating and inspirational research on the spontaneous visions and dreams of Hospice Buffalo patients who are nearing life’s end, intimate experiences through which they find serenity, acceptance, and dignity and that bring comfort to those who witness and remain.

"...death is indeed a fearful piece of brutality; there is no sense in pretending otherwise...From another point of view, however, death appears as a joyful event." ["Memories, Dreams, Reflections" p.314]

Cost:

  • $12 for non-members
  • $10 for members
  • $5 for students with ID

Parking available via the large parking lot entrance on Franklin

Dr. Christopher Kerr joined Hospice Buffalo in 1999 as the Medical Director for Hospice Buffalo’s 22-bed Inpatient Unit and served in that capacity until 2011, when he was appointed CHPC’s Chief Medical Officer. A native of Canada, Dr. Kerr received a Doctorate of Philosophy and Doctor of Medicine degree, followed by a residency in Internal Medicine at The University of Rochester. His background in research has evolved from bench science towards the human experience of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patients’ dreams and visions at the end of life. Although medically ignored, these near universal experiences often provide comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led and the death anticipated. Dr. Kerr has an extensive list of publications, presentations and awards. His research on patient’s end-of-life experiences has been featured nationally and internationally through media coverage, including The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Atlantic, BBC, Scientific American Mind, Psychology Today, and in an ongoing documentary.

Join C.G. Jung Center

Attending (2)

The purpose of the Analytical Psychology Society of Western NY is to study and share the work of C.G. Jung and related contemporary thought.

In addition to our continuing book service, The C.G. Jung Center is pleased to announce a working relationship with Talking Leaves Bookstore that will greatly expand the availability of Jungian literature in Buffalo.


Since our inception, access to the books we sell has been limited to times when our center is open to the public. As part of our arrangement with Talking Leaves they will be expanding the number of selections by Jung and related authors that they keep on their shelves.


Most of the titles will be at the Main Street store, however a list of what's available will be kept behind the counter at the Elmwood location.


We hope you will take advantage of this greatly increased opportunity to purchase these informative books so full of meaning for Psyche in the world.

"I have been compelled, in my investigations into the structure of the unconscious, to make a conceptual distinction between soul and psyche. By psyche, I understand the totality of all psychic processes, conscious as well as unconscious. By soul, on the other hand, I understand a clearly demarcated functional complex that can best be described as a "personality". (Jung, 1971: Def. 48 par. 797)
