Guest Occupation: NDE, Near Death Experiences
Guest Biography:
Michael technically died in a plane crash on the morning of June 4th 1979.

He crossed over twice, and was reunited with thousands of people he’d known in the past. 

In that higher dimension, he was allowed to remember everything in the memory of our Universe. When he was informed that he was "going back" to 3D, he was asked if he wished to consciously remember all he’d remembered and learned upon his return to Earth.

Michael says, “I said Yes, like a fool! My return was remarkable, as I was not completely back in our world. A portion of my consciousness is still on the Other Side, and in full communication.” 

So he is able to direct questions to "them," and they provide answers.

Mike Dunafon
Guest Occupation: 9th Mayor of Glendale Colorado, Politician
Guest Biography:

“Liberty is the essence of the American ideal and this philosophy can only be advanced by the individual.  At the core our founding philosophy lies one fundamental requirement – critical thought.  Without critical thought, Liberty is in free fall, and subject to opinion, innuendo and ridicule. Worse yet, where critical thinking is absent, we too often see egoism, greed and unprincipled aggression against the helpless.
- Mayor Mike Dunafon, Nov 2014
 
The antithesis of a professional politician, Mayor Mike Dunafon is fiercely independent and refuses to accept any money from anyone. Mike believes that both the Democrats on the left and the Republicans on the right have sold out America pandering for their share of corporate and PAC money. He understands that the intellectual elites running the Democrats want to control your decisions because they know better than you, what is best for you and your family.  Mike fundamentally rejects this idea and big government categorically, and believes that we need to reverse our current path toward socialism, by creating more liberty and less government. On the other side of the spectrum, Mike also rejects the imposition of religious intolerance by segments within the Republican Party, specifically on the social issues of reproductive liberty and marital equality. These social matters are best resolved by adopting public policy choices that promote liberty for women (over their bodies) and marriage equality for all couples, irrespective of sexual expression or orientation.

Jorma Kaukonen
Guest Occupation: Legendary Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist with Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna

LEGENDARY SINGER-SONGWRITER-GUITARIST

WITH

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE

AND

H  O  T   T  U  N  A

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 

In a career that has already spanned a half-century, Jorma Kaukonen has been one of the most highly respected interpreters of American roots music, blues, and rock. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy recipient, Jorma was at the forefront of popular rock and roll, one of the founders of the San Francisco sound and a progenitor of Psychedelic Rock. He is a founding member of two legendary bands, Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna. Jorma Kaukonen is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in his field. He continues to tour the world bringing his unique styling to old blues tunes while presenting new songs of weight and dimension. His secret is in playing spontaneous and unfiltered music, with an individual expression of personality. In 2016, Jorma, Jack Casady and the other members of Jefferson Airplane were awarded The GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to American music.

In 1965, met Paul Kantner and was invited to join a new not-yet-named rock band Kantner was forming with Marty Balin. As a self-described blues purist, Kaukonen was initially reluctant, but found his imagination excited by the arsenal of effects available to electric guitar, later remarking that he was "sucked in by technology." With the group still looking for a name, Kaukonen suggested Jefferson Airplane, inspired by an eccentric friend who had given his dog the name "Blind Lemon Jefferson Airplane." Jorma invited his old musical partner Jack Casady to come out to San Francisco and play electric bass for the new band, and together they created much of Jefferson Airplane’s signature sound.

A pioneer of counterculture-era psychedelic rock, the group was the first band from the San Francisco scene to achieve international mainstream success. Their 1967 record Surrealistic Pillow is regarded as one of the key recordings of the "Summer of Love."

Jorma and Jack would jam whenever they could and would sometimes perform sets within sets at Airplane concerts. The two would often play clubs following Airplane performances. Making a name for themselves as a duo, they struck a record deal, and Hot Tuna was born. Jorma left Jefferson Airplane after the band’s most productive five years, pursuing his full-time job with Hot Tuna. Over the past five decades Hot Tuna has performed thousands of concerts and released more than two-dozen records. The musicians who have performed with them are many and widely varied, as are their styles — from acoustic to long and loud electric jams, but never straying far from their musical roots. What is remarkable is that they have never coasted. Hot Tuna today sounds better than ever.

Alexandra Eisner
Guest Occupation: Suicide Prevention Crisis Hotline Supervisor and Founder of LiveLong Movement
Guest Biography:

ALEXANDRA EISNER

Alexandra Eisner is a Supervisor on the Suicide Prevention Crisis Hotline for Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and is also the Founder and Creator of a Suicide Prevention Company called LiveLong Movement. 

Alexandra’s connection with suicide started at age 17 when she first had a thought to kill herself. For nine years she battled and toyed with the thoughts, until ultimately she came to planning and attempting her death by overdosing at a music festival at age 26. The death ended up in an awakening so powerful she promised the Universe she’d dedicate her life to learning about exactly what it is she had just experienced. 

She has since turned to meditation and energy healing to continue the new journey. A year after the attempt she felt strong enough to support others heal from their suicide ideations. In June 2018 Alex started volunteering on the Suicide Prevention Hotline, while working as the Global Security Senior Coordinator for Sony Pictures Entertainment; where she had worked for over 7 years. Shortly later in January 2019, Alex was offered a position as the Security and Secrecy Assessor for Apple TV+. Alex made the move and traveled 50% of the time within the next year around the world managing Apples Studio Productions making sure nothing was pirated or leaked. 

As amazing as the opportunity was at Apple, Alex was once again not feeling strong enough to be on the Hotline and often was having to miss volunteer shifts. Something was out of alignment and she had to make a decision.

Alex has since quite Apple TV+ and became a Supervisor on the Suicide Prevention Hotline in February 2020. 

Every Monday through Friday on the graveyard shift Alex answers emergency calls on the Hotline, which include crisis’s related to mainly suicide and homicide. These calls can range from informational calls to tragic deaths. Alex has answered the phone nearly 500 times and in March, while still as a Supervisor in Training, she managed the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Teen Line, and the Disaster Distress Hotline on her own because nearly 40 counselors were quarantined due to a positive COVID testing in an employee. 

On her own time, Alex has also been hand-making bracelets and giving them to people for free as part of the LiveLong Movement since November 2018. Over 700 bracelets have been sent around the world to people who’ve reached out to her directly in need of support. The bracelets are red to help alleviate self-mutaliation desires and have the words “Live Long” hand-stamped to represent the motivation to ‘live longer’.

From ages 17- 23, Alex struggled with anxiety attacks and used self-mutiliation as a coping skill.

THE WATERS (KRYSTAL BAKER and STURGIS WATERS)

Where love and music collide, you will find The Waters. An acoustic duo whose core consists of singer/songwriter Krystal Baker and guitarist Sturgis Waters based out of Phoenix AZ, they bring a minimalist approach to progressive folk-rock music.

Her haunting vocals combined with his colorful guitar melodies blend to create a fabric of intimate conversation. The modest and dynamic aspects of the duo create an authentic experience. Once compared to a more multidimensional yet similar vocal sound to that of Natalie Merchant, coupled by his guitar stylings reminiscent of Tim Reynolds, you will find a great combination of distinctive yet familiar sounds.

Playing both their original songs as well as unique arrangements of other artists, their love of music is something we can all connect with
