Good Fiction Makes For A Better Reality wih J.M. Frey

It's a rough world out there -- it can be unfriendly, misogynist, fatalistic, full of fear. You would think that science fiction and fantasy has nothing to do with what we have to deal with. Yet I would challenge you to think about it as a genre that opens you up to what is possible -- where the idea of tolerance, curiosity, the seemingly impossible and the eternally open mind is hailed as the way to the future. Join me with fanthrolopogist and award-winning science fiction/fantasy author J M Frey as we discuss how the view of SF/Fantasy has changed over the decades, and why it may just be the way to save the future.

About Corbie Mitleid:

Corbie Mitleid has been on the mystic’s path for over 30 years -- meeting challenges, always questioning, leading the “examined life.” It’s proved to her an essential Cosmic Truth: God gives all of us what we need for a life filled with miracles and joy, and as long as our hearts are open, whole, and aligned with our Source Energy, anything is possible. (And it never hurts to bring laughter on the path with us!) If she can share that blessing with you, she feels she's doing things right.

While she’s now a full time intuitive counselor and psychic medium, her career has encompassed positions as a professional actress, television producer, radio personality, executive recruiter and “power behind the throne” for a number of high-profile CEOs.  Corbie knows what it is to live life on a roller coaster with no brakes: she’s survived divorce, abuse, poverty and life-threatening illness, always maintaining her strength, courage and humor. “We have opportunities we can go after, and challenges to get past. After dancing with breast cancer three times, I learned that first-hand. My job is to give you the tools and courage to deal with both situations. Everything else is free will, and up to you!”

Corbie travels internationally, bringing insight, hope and encouragement to clients dealing with indecision, confusion, fear, even depression.  Now she expands her work to a worldwide radio audience.  Listen, connect, and cross the bridge from where you are to where you want to be with Fire Through Spirit on Empower Radio!
