Show notes

(((Headphones recommended for optimal enjoyment)))

Esther Jacobs is an intrepid, location-independent entrepreneur. She's traveled to over 100 countries, speaks 7 languages, was "fired" from her country, and feels at home anywhere in the world. She writes books, and teaches others how to write books using her unique reverse writing technique. She was knighted in the Dutch order, and participated in the Dutch version of Survivor. She's also my big sister! Using her life story as our foundation, we talk about creatively overcoming obstacles, energy management, dream guidance, the wisdom & whispers of the body, groupthink vs individualism, control vs. surrender, the difference between travelers & tourists, surreality TV, past lives, and more.

In Part 2 of our conversation--available exclusively on Patreon--we compare spiritual spider stories, recount our misadventures in the Amazon, where we imbibed strange potions with a Yagua shaman, and Esther shares how remote Peyote buttons serenaded her, without ever having ingested them.
