Why do people have metaphysical and mystical experiences? This new series sets out to answer that question. Welcome to the introductory episode. We’re inviting you to be an active part of this exploration as we delve into the purpose of these experiences and what they tell us about humanity’s future and potential. We seek answers to this question from ancient wisdom traditions as well as modern science. Listen in as we focus on the role and meaning of metaphysical and mystical experiences from varying perspectives, across a broad range of human experience and ways of knowing.

Many modern-day mystics have been in the closet. It’s easy to understand why scientists have chosen not to talk openly about spiritual experiences, but what about spiritual leaders? Pastors? And what about the everyday folks on main street or sitting in the pews of those churches? Where do we go to navigate this fascinating terrain, share transpersonal, metaphysical, and mystical experiences to better understand the evolution of consciousness? Join Drs. Julie Krull and Paul Mills as they set out to “normalize the non-ordinary” and open the closet door.

Have you ever wondered, “Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going when I leave and how do I get there?” Our guest today, an internationally recognized authority on human spiritual potential, transformation, and ascension, says the quest to answer these questions triggers our natural spiritual abilities for transformation and evolution, both as individuals and as a species. Transformation leads to a sense of wholeness, holiness, and completion that changes our bodies, raises us beyond human, and enables us to “walk with the angels” in the sacred realms. This is ascension. Join us for this riveting conversation.


William Henry, is an author, investigative mythologist, art historian, and TV presenter. He is an internationally recognized authority on human spiritual potential, transformation, and ascension. William has a unique ability to incorporate historical, religious, spiritual, scientific, archaeological, and other forms of such knowledge into factually-based theories and conclusions that provide the layperson with a more in-depth understanding of the profound shift we are actually experiencing in our lifetime. The spiritual voice and Consulting Producer of the History Channel’s hit program, Ancient Aliens, and host of the Gaia TV series The Awakened Soul: The Lost Science of Ascension, and Arcanum, William Henry is your guide into the transformative sacred science of human ascension. He is the author of the newly released book, Ascension, a part of the Common Sentience Book Series published by Sacred Stories Publishing.

We’ve all had them . . . those mystical glimpses into the consciousness beyond our five senses. In a sacred moment, a flash of truth or taste of grace moves through us. Our world expands and something is revealed, illuminated, felt. We go back to our daily lives, yet something essential has changed. Transcendent experiences like these are becoming so increasingly common that it makes sense to finally claim and honor the next level of consciousness we’re expanding into. Sharing grounded wisdom and our intimate encounters with this greater reality, the Common Sentience book series open hearts, affirms our innate essence, and transforms our world. Rev. Ariel Patricia joins us to talk about our sacred stories and why it’s important that we share them now.


Rev. Ariel Patricia is Founder and CEO of Sacred Stories Publishing and Media. She felt the calling to found Sacred Stories after a series of events changed the course of her life (we’re going to ask her about that). Since then, she has been on a heart-based mission to help others tell and share their own stories of transformation to a global audience. Ariel Patricia is ordained as an interfaith minister, author of two books, and co-author of three. She is a sought-after keynote speaker and pioneer in subjects related to our evolving consciousness.

“By attuning our hearts to love, we can connect to our Higher Self, open to our angels, and awaken as evolving citizens of the universe,” says Tricia McCannon, author of Angels. What does that mean, really? Join us for a fascinating conversation where we explore the spiritual wisdom and scientific insights around angels with Tricia and subtle energy researcher, Tiffany Jean Barsotti, Ph.D.. We’ll explore how to access this real human potential and what angels can teach us about the true nature of reality and our place in it?

Mystical, transpersonal, and metaphysical experiences are often described as beautiful, magical, life-changing events that enhance our lives in positive ways. But sometimes a spiritual experience can turn into a spiritual emergency or worse, a psychotic break. As a young adult, our guest, Patricia Muehsam, M.D., found herself locked in a psychiatric ward after talking about her own spiritual experiences. Now, a pioneer in the synthesis of science, holistic health, and contemporary spirituality, Dr. Muehsam has a groundbreaking book, Beyond Medicine: A Physician’s Revolutionary Prescription for Achieving Absolute Health and Finding Inner Peace.

About Dr. Patricia A. Muehsam

Patricia A. Muehsam, MD, a pioneer in the synthesis of science, holistic health, and contemporary spirituality, has distinguished herself as a practitioner, educator, research scientist, and author. Dr. Muehsam has been an influential force in shaping the landscape of healthcare options available today.

As an educator, she founded the Association of American Medical Colleges’ first initiative in alternative and complementary medicine, leading medical schools throughout the United States to add courses in the field. Her original bioelectromagnetics laboratory research at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine investigated distant healer phenomena, Qigong, and homeopathy. Since then, she has studied trance medium, spiritual, and psychic healing phenomena, as well as the links between consciousness and health. Dr. Muehsam’s journey has been marked by both extraordinary personal challenges and extraordinary openings, all of which have informed that journey and been an inspiration for her professional activities. She has been a patient, many times over. She has experienced catastrophic illness in her family and in her own life. And she’s born witness to cures that defied conventional medical thinking. Inspired by her personal experiences, she pursued training in acupuncture, homeopathy, Ayurveda, mindbody medicine, yoga, energy medicine, and functional medicine, and in 2008, she founded Transformational Medicine TM , a whole person approach to healing, wellness, and living. Her services include health consultations, mind-body healing sessions, courses, retreats, and communities of support.

Muehsam’s groundbreaking book, Beyond Medicine: A Physician’s Revolutionary Prescription for Achieving Absolute Health and Finding Inner Peace, has been hailed by Larry Dossey, MD as the “only health and healing book you may ever need.” A musician since early childhood, Dr. Muehsam plays piano, flute, and sings. Nowadays, she mostly sings — jazz, gospel, and classical choral music. She resides in New York City with Benjamin, her adopted Golden Retriever and very wise spiritual advisor.

Imagine if we all knew for certain there was something more than this world and this single lifetime, and that God exists, and that we are loved beyond measure by God.” What would our world be like if we all had transpersonal, metaphysical, and mystical experiences? And what if we could share these Spiritually Transformative Experiences with others. Would it create a global spiritual revolution? What would it tell us about humanity’s potential and future? Join Drs. Julie Krull and Paul J. Mills with their guest, author John Audette, as they explore whether mystical experiences can catalyze a spiritual revolution.


John Audette is the author of Loved by the Light: True Stories of Divine Intervention and Providence. His professional career spanned over three decades of senior executive positions in hospital and hospice administration and physician practice management. Audette’s interest in Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STEs) began at age 8 when he heard his first account of a Near Death Experience from his best friend’s mother. His interest was dormant until 1974 when he met Raymond Moody. Dr. Moody was a medical student at the time just beginning research which later led to the publication of Life After Life. Later, another associate, Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross encouraged Mr. Audette to move forward with his idea to form an association focused on Spiritually Transformative Experiences for experiencers, researchers, and the interested public, which later resulted in the formation of the International Association for Near-Death Studies. He is founder of Eternea: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality for Personal and Global Transformation.
