West Memphis Three member Damien Echols has lived a life none of us can imagine. In the mid 90’s, Damien and two others were wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to death. He lived on death row for 18 years, 10 of which he was in solitary confinement. The HBO documentary Paradise Lost covered his story and brought the case to the attention of the public. Eventually, forensic evidence proved Damien’s innocence and he was released from prison. After his release, he wrote the NYT bestselling book Life After Death.
But how did Damien get through 10 years in solitary confinement? By studying and practicing magick and meditation. On this podcast, we go deep into what Damien experienced during his time in prison, how he was able to take ownership of his life and his new book High Magick: A Guide to the Spiritual Practices That Saved My Life on Death Row.
Before the interview, I answer a listener question on self-love and discuss how we can learn to feel whole by changing our focus.
