The Afterlife: It’s perfectly complicated.

We think we know a bit about it, but do we really?

There may be so much more to learn.

In this episode, Kitty asks you to put your notion of the Afterlife to the side, just for a bit. Through tale and poems, we take an entirely non-morbid look at death and what may follow after.

Together we discover that the Good People might play a part in ‘life’ after death for many Humans and ponder:

how the Good People decide which Humans will stay with them after they have died?

if Humans we regard as ‘Spirits’ live among Faerie, what does that tell us about Faerie?

is it time we take a fresh look at the notion of ‘Faerie’ and ‘Death’?

Join Kitty for a chat on this most curious topic.

I would love to reach 1,000 Subscribers on the ‘Encounters with the Good People’ YouTube channel.

Having over 1,000 Subscribers will allow me to build a ‘Community Channel‘ which will make it super easy for me to communicate and interact with viewers of Encounters with the Good People’ on YouTube.

I really appreciate your help in reaching 1,000 Subscribers. We are building a friendly, positive, respectful and safe community of folk who not only enjoy all things Faerie, but value nature, art, storytelling and our Ancestors.

***Changes to my YouTube Channel ***

It occurs to me that the Good People likely have little care for pesky numbers and lists and all such restrictions (they have better things to do!). So… I am no longer producing my Podcast YouTube videos in order, it’s random from hereon in!

Dan and I will now lovingly transform our Audio Podcast into a visual feast for your viewing pleasure in a random order. Let me know if there is an episode you are particularly hanging out to see on YouTube and I’ll see what I can do!!!

Big thanks and love, Kitty.
