Helping Parents Heal on The Next Room with Elizabeth Boisson and Irene Vouvalides

Jane had the great honor of interviewing two remarkable women this week for the show. The President and Vice President of the non-profit Helping Parents Heal, Elizabeth and Irene, both suffered unspeakable tragedy with the death of their children. They channeled their grief and made a pivot to help and guide other parents suffering similar loss. One of the most unique things about Helping Parents Heal is their undeniable belief that they will always be connected to their children here, and one day in the afterlife. The book, Life to Afterlife-Helping Parents Heal, is a stunning collection of firsthand accounts of these courageous parents telling their stories of signs, connections and messages from the next realm. Love never dies and Elizabeth and Irene will fill your heart with so much hope of what is next, as they continue to be of service in Helping Parents Heal on The Next Room!

Two of Elizabeth's children have transitioned; her daughter, Chelsea, in 1991, soon after she was born, and her son, Morgan, in 2009 from severe altitude sickness while on a student trip to the Base Camp of Mt Everest in Tibet. Immediately after, Elizabeth created the Facebook group that led to the creation of Helping Parents Heal in 2012. Elizabeth is a certified yoga instructor and teaches yoga for healing grief. She is the Affiliate Leader of the Phoenix/Scottsdale HPH group, and the author of Life to Afterlife - Helping Parents Heal, The Book.

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.
