Unable to reconcile the contradictions and intensities, two post-death voices from within offer different reflections on the process of dying. Still wedded to a belief in meditation and affirmations Casey wants to hold on to the positive and let go of the struggle. Alethea, on the other hand, wants to debunk the myths and hold on to the reality.
