He is loved and respected worldwide for his inspirational lectures on the Near-Death Experience, Palliative and Hospice Care, Complementary and Alternative Healing Practices, and Self-Awareness. Since 1977, Dannion has worked diligently, looking for the best way to integrate conventional and complimentary medicine.· Having survived numerous brushes with death, Dannion is an expert in the dying process.· He was struck twice by lightning and has since survived heart failure, open-heart surgery, ruptured subdural hematomas, brain surgery, and a massive grand maul seizure.·
That first lightning strike radically changed his life. Dannion became a hospice and nursing home volunteer.· In the past 35 years of volunteer service, he has been at the bedside of over 419 people at the point of death, and has been with more than 2,000 people during their final days, accruing more than 26,000 hours of service.·
As a member of the National Institutes of Health’s ad hoc committee, he assisted in research and preparation of The Chantilly Report and the formation of the Office of Alternative Medicine in 1992.
Dannion is co-founder of The Twilight Brigade, Compassion in Action (CIA), an international organization that recruits, trains, and places volunteers, with the goal of providing companionship during the last months of life. With more than 76 million Baby Boomers now confronting the mortality of their relatives and friends many of whom are Veterans, this program is providing a much-needed link to assure quality in end-of-life care for our nation’s veterans. Having proudly served in the Marine Corps himself, this is a matter that is very close to Dannion’s heart.
