As attendance rates at traditional churches suffer, people are looking for new ways to make sense of this crazy thing called life and more authentic ways of connecting with the divine. But does it work? Join us this week as we talk with Mr. Ultra Spiritual himself, JP Sears, as we discuss a variety of ways that people are attempting to find themselves as well as avoiding the trap of thinking we are better than those who have chosen a different path.
JP Sears is an emotional healing coach, international teacher, world traveler, and curious student of life. His work is intended to empower people to empower themselves to live more meaningful lives. He holds certification as a Holistic Coach Advanced Practitioner through the Holistic Coaching Institute in Columbus, OH. Most importantly, he has red hair, blue eyes, a caring heart, and a warped sense of humor.
