Christy_Marie_732979217.jpegChristy Marie was blessed to be raised in a family that accepted death as a normal part of life and never shied away from talking about their loved ones after they had passed. She remembers large family gatherings after the funerals of loved ones and the feelings of love, grief, sadness and even joy in the sharing of memories and stories. Her life has been unconventional, intense and deeply magical. Even in the darkest moments she can always find the light and have a laugh.

Christy's most recent adventure has been answering the call by the Morrigan to work as a death doula and end-of-life specialist. This path has led her to return to school to complete a degree in Humanities & Social Services, dive into Shadow Work, and explore hidden archetypes. She also works with extraordinary industry leaders to help co-produce the Beautiful Dying Expo.



About Jane Asher:

Jane Asher has always been a natural connector who has enjoyed a successful career in media and the music industry, most notably at major radio stations in San Diego and Santa Barbara. Several years ago, she stepped away from terrestrial radio when Empower Radio reached out and asked her to create a show about her passion. The Next Room podcast was born.

Demystifying death daily, she interviews professionals and practitioners from diverse backgrounds about death, dying, grief, beliefs and cultural traditions surrounding the journey we all must ultimately make. The show airs across 11 platforms and has connected her with extraordinary people throughout this community. The Next Room has recently become the official podcast of the Beautiful Dying Expo.

Jane is also passionate about being involved in mission work. She has been part of a team for over five years that has built homes in Tijuana for families in need through Lutheran Border Concerns. She has traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless, Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo, and Armenia to work with women and children in the small village of Amre Taza. Most recently, she was on a humanitarian mission in the Dominican Republic. 

Her book, The Next Room is a story transcending space and time, of a relationship between mother and daughter that grew stronger through death. Written together, by initially enlisting interpretation through a psychic medium, The Next Room takes us on a daughter's journey through learning eternal life lessons on forgiveness, grief, grace, gratitude, and the limitless love of all, God.

Jane lives in San Diego with her husband, Tom. She is now answering her passion-filled purpose and writing daily alongside her puppy and muse, Mamba.
