Program 6 – Milky Way

This program explores our relationship to Spirit World by delving into how we grieve and mourn the loss of a loved one. Death looms in heavy and humorous ways in this program, illuminating that often there are a range of ways we cope with loss. And while Death is a universal experience, it is one that often has the power to bring families together.
