Death, Grief and Belief with Terri Daniels

Jane was introduced to Terri Daniels the Founder of The Afterlife Conference through the beauty of social media. Hearing the words afterlife always intrigues Jane, and she wanted to hear more, so, she invited Dr. Terri to join her on The Next Room. The two discuss the conference which is now being rebranded to The Conference on Death, Grief and Belief . Terri also shared the story surrounding the loss of her son who was her muse and inspiration behind the book "A Swan in Heaven"  Dr. Terri will be leading the track on Spirituality and Mysticism at the upcoming Beautiful Dying Expo this November. It’s death, grief and belief this week on The Next Room!

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.
