On Death Denial, Truth, and Transcendence with Dr. Jordana Jacobs

On this episode, I talk with Dr. Jordana Jacobs, a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City. Her approach is integrative, combining psychodynamic and existential therapy into her treatment of patients. Dr. Jacobs’ training at Memorial Sloan Kettering working with terminally ill cancer patients, her studies in Northern India, and her Vipassana meditation practice inspired her research on the complex relationship between death awareness and love. Her dissertation, entitled “Till Death do us Part: The Effect of Mortality Salience on Satisfaction in Long-term Romantic Relationships” specifically explored the ways in which priming for death has the potential to increase intimacy in partnerships. In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Jacobs now speaks and leads retreats aimed towards helping people accept inevitable mortality so that they are able to live and love more fully.

On Numerology, Synchronicity and Love with Donnalynn Civello

On this episode, I talk to Donnalynn Civello, a life coach, numerologist and intuitive healer based in NYC. A few months ago, I attended one of Donnalynn’s numerology circles, and I was surprised by how much I gained from the experience. I had always been very skeptical of numerology, but Donnalynn is someone who has really changed my mind on the subject. In this episode, I talk to her about my skepticism around numerology, as well as how we can use the numbers in our lives to overcome obstacles and break negative patterns in order to lead a more fulfilling life.

On the Coevolution of Religion & Art with Professor Kareem Johnson

Kareem Johnson is a Professor of Psychology at Temple University, whose expertise, among others, is evolutionary psychology, but more specifically, what he calls Quantum Evolutionary Psychology, which is the name of the Capstone class of his that I took before I graduated at Temple, where I did my thesis on the influence that altered states of consciousness had on the emergence of art.
