    Questions For When You Are Gone with Rabbi Steve Leder     “If you are afraid of dying it’s not your day. Anxiety is for the living. So if you are worried and anxious about dying, you’re not dying, which means you have time to let death teach you about living and loving your life.” – Rabbi Steve Leder   “Most people die exactly the way they live.” – Rabbi Steve Leder   “The meaning of life is that it stops.” German author Franz Kafka (1883-1924)       Episode Summary:   What can death teach you about how to live your life?   Today we talk with Rabbi Steve Leder, currently serving as the Senior Rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, a prestigious synagogue in Los Angeles with three campuses and 2,700 families.     He has been a regular contributor and guest on the Today Show, writes regularly for TIME, Foxnews.com, Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper, contributed a chapter to “Charles Barkley’s book Who’s Afraid of a Large Black Man?’, and has published essays in Town and Country, the Los Angeles Times, and USA Today.  Newsweek Magazine twice named him one of the ten most influential rabbis in America.   Most important to Steve is being Betsy’s husband and Aaron and Hannah’s dad.  He is also a Jew who likes to fish.  Go figure.   After undergraduate study at Northwestern University and Trinity College, Oxford University, Rabbi Leder received a Master’s Degree in Hebrew Letters in 1986 and Rabbinical Ordination in 1987 from Hebrew Union College.    His book “More Beautiful Than Before; How Suffering Transforms Us”, published in 2017, reached #4 on Amazon’s overall best sellers list in its first week.  It remains a best seller in several categories and has been translated into Korean and Chinese.    His book “The Beauty of What Remains; How Our Greatest Fear Becomes Our Greatest Gift” was published by Penguin Random House in January, 2021.  Publisher’s weekly called it “…elegant and compassionate” and it quickly became a national best seller.    Rabbi Leder’s newest book “For You When I Am Gone; Twelve Essential Questions to Tell a Life Story”, also published by Penguin Random House, launches on June 7, 2022       Rabbi Leder has served literally thousands of people and their families around their deaths. Listen in to hear how death can be your most profound teacher.     Topics We Discuss:   [4:19] Steve Leder’s contrasting experiences of death through two lenses: first as Rabbi Steve Leder, and secondly as a son whose father died.   [7:30] The dichotomies or dualities that permeate life.   [12:05]  The tremendous internal conflict working around a woman with ALS at the end days of her life who was ready to die.   [20:57] Rabbi Leder observes the actively dying are not afraid, in a place of acceptance, and at peace.   [27:27] How answering Rabbi’s 12 questions in his book “For You When I Am Gone; Twelve Essential Questions to Tell a Life Story” will help you align with your truth. Instead of leaving your loved ones a dry document in legalese.   [34:31] Why Rabbi Leder says, “Most people die exactly the way they live”.   [41:50] Learning via the negative. Death as a teacher.   [46:32] The pursuit of happiness. Sacrifice as a means of drawing closer to god, and drawing loved ones closer. Finding moments that connect us to the divine. In giving we receive.   [5405] What Rabbi Leder believes what happens when we die.     FOLLOW RABBI STEVE LEDER:   Rabbi Leder’s books are available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.   Find him on Instagram.   Or at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles.     SUPPORT DR.

    The Power of Plant Medicine with Kat Courtney     “They’ve taught me that truth is the only way out of chaos. So first I have to first show up real, vulnerable, and all in.” – Kat Courtney, on psychedelic sacred medicine plant journeys   “Drinking plant medicine a few times and assuming you know how to lead a ceremony is like watching a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and assuming you know how to perform surgery.” – Kat Courtney     Episode Summary:   Have you been hearing more and more lately about psychedelics and healing? We sure have!   Today we talk with Tina “Kat” Courtney, known as The AfterLife Coach, a traditionally trained Ayahuasquera and Huachumera, carrying the Shipibo-Conibo, Quechua-Lamista, and Chavin plant medicine lineages.    She works as a ceremony guide, psychedelic integration coach, and is a certified Death Doula. Kat is an enthusiastic advocate for reverent and safe plant medicine experiences and is a passionate messenger of how to co-create magic without trauma in psychedelic spaces.  She is also the co-founder of Plant Medicine People, a Plant Medicine concierge company and the author of “Plant Medicine Mystery School”.     Listen in to hear how sacred plant medicines can help us all heal.     Topics We Discuss:   [3:30] Kat’s first experiences with plant medicine. Becoming hopeful she was able to heal significant then-day challenges: bulimia, functional alcoholism, bipolar disorder.   [5:53] Appropriate reverence for sacred plant medicine.   [8:07]  Differences between plant consciousness and human consciousness.  Ego vs. unity consciousness.   [11:11] The pothole of spiritual bypassing using psychedelics.   [13:30] Drug Induced Ego Dissolution (DIED) aka Ego Death. The experience of unity consciousness – our connection to everything, interconnectedness and safety.   [17:16]  Kat cautions people NOT to force an ego death during a psychedelic experience from a place of “ego = bad”. Instead, take the experience from a place of self-love.      [19:28] The importance of integration following any peak experiences, whether from trauma, plant medicine, or life itself. Spending time making sense of the experience.   [23:09] Although not physically addictive, the real possibility of psychological addiction and abuse of plant medicines.    [25:25] Kat’s thoughts, as a white woman from Montana, on Westernizing and capitalizing what is a traditionally indigenous ritual.   [32:47] Kat’s assessment of lab-created synthetic vs. natural, organic psychedelics.   [36:25] The “personalities” of the major plant medicines: ayahuasca, psilocybin, Huachuca (San Pedro cactus), bufo toad venom, and iboga.   [42:18] Micro-dosing vs. divine dosing, and all points between.   [45:05] What the plants are saying about what humanity is doing globally today.   [48:36] Amy’s speed round questions: What is spirituality? What is something people don’t know about you? What is one thing you’re looking forward to right now? What’s one thing you’re deeply grateful for? What book in on your nightstand? What is your favorite spiritual or healing practice? What is the most spiritually transformative experience of your life?     FOLLOW KAT COURTNEY:   If you’d like to work with Kat, or join her in a Sacred Ceremony (maybe a ayahuasca retreat), find out more at www.afterlife.coach and www.plantmedicinepeople.com.    You can find Kat’s book “Plant Medicine Mystery School” on Amazon and wherever books are sold.   Or follow her on Instagram or LinkedIn.       SUPPORT DR.
