Jill Schock, LA's Death Doula, returns to the podcast to crack open more about life and death.

We dive in deeper to discuss both the practical and mystical elements of working with dying people. Is there life after death? What are dreams? Are psychics real?

Recorded in Los Angeles

Jill is a death doula assisting people transition from life to death. We explore the real mystical things that happen as people die: seeing cats, seeing dead people, moving between realities, and more. We also touch on how the work has sharpened her personal clairvoyance and connection to the dream state. - Recorded in Los Angeles, CA

#114 Sean Dunne & Cass Greener

Sean returns to MDWH along with his girlfriend, Cass. We begin by recognizing the psycho-spiritual war that has consumed our hearts and minds during the political season and beyond. 

Our conversation explores our path forward as a society through the birthing of Generation E: a post consumer all-inclusive generation and movement focused on personal and cultural enlightenment which transcends time, age, ego and place.

We immerse ourselves on tales of our psychedelic experiences and the lessons we've learned along the way. This and more on today's show. 

Listen to the music from today's show on Spotify. Watch Sean's films on his site and check out his podcast on MindPodNetwork.

Recorded live at the Inter-dimensional House of Pancakes in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Meet Mario. He was my driver to a job in LA and we ended up connecting over a conversation on time dialiation and community. I felt it would be great to continue the conversation after the job so I brought him back to carry on through the podcast. Mario explains his No Bad Guy Narrative to us and we discuss cultural appropriation, spirituality, society, and more. Follow Mario on Twitter and Instagram
