Understanding the Hollywood Medium. Thoughts on Life After Death with Tyler Henry

An MP3 version of the talk can be found on my podcast, Talks and Thoughts, available via podcast feeds.

The reality TV star, Tyler Henry, became famous with his celebrity readings. His new Netflix series, Life After Death, is a chance to consider what he does in a different light.

My sense is he is one of the relatively rare highly gifted clairvoyants, who have impressed investigators like William James.

I’m also struck by how his way of working resonates with psychotherapeutic phenomena like countertransference, as well as the testimony of Dante in the Divine Comedy.

Tyler Henry challenges worldviews. But if not simply dismissed, and also approached in a less starry more discerning light, he offers a chance to understand more of life, its relationship to death, and what our times may be rediscovering.
