In this breather show, Shawn Askinosie and I continue our wonderful conversation, which becomes more spiritually minded as we touch on topics such as grief, aging, and a little bit about neuroscience, too.

Shawn gets really personal and opens up about his own experience with loss and what he refers to as “the long arch of grief.” We talk about aging and the soul, and Shawn shares why he thinks of our souls as ageless. We also talk about the neuroscience behind forward acceleration and gravity, and its effect on our brain and on our equilibrium.


There are times when we need help with our emotions and spiritual selves. [01:09]

Grief is grief. It doesn’t matter how old you are. [05:28]

Life is so comfortable we don’t have many opportunities to push our bodies to the limit. [08:37]

One has a sense of freedom that is very spiritual. [11:38]



  • “Many of us experience dark nights of the soul. Gray nights, even shaded nights...and I think it’s important we get help where we can, and not feel ashamed to admit that we need help.”
