Guest 1: Jon DeWaal is the executive director, transition specialist and learning facilitator at Liminal Space, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping others find the courage and means to navigate major life transition. He spends his days guiding 1×1 transition coaching and counseling sessions, leading transition groups called PIER groups, and facilitating learning workshops that teach transition skills at The PIER Learning Center at Liminal Space.
Jon came to Seattle in 2003 from Grand Rapids, MI, to attend The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology receiving his Masters of Divinity in 2007. Since then, he taught at The Seattle School as an adjunct professor on calling and career.
Jon served for two years as a fellow and teacher at The Allender Center for Trauma & Abuse. Through his education, mentoring and the struggles and discoveries of his transitions, Jon found a more natural fit for his career – creating Liminal Space, an organization that combines the often segregated disciplines of counseling, life coaching, career counseling and spiritual direction.
Over the last 9 years his work and research has shown that major transitions are places where people can find their desired path and become stronger, or where they can get stuck –sometimes for years. Having a plan, helpful guidance, and a clear focus can make all the difference in the world.

Guest 2: Sebastian Sepulveda, MD, believes there is a better way to navigate end of life care. He specializes in internal medicine, has 17 years experience treating inpatients as a hospitalist and is passionate about end of life care and helping patients and families to deal with dying. In his book, “At Death’s Door: End of Life Stories from the Bedside” (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2017), Dr. Sepulveda shares his first hand accounts of working with dying patients, exposing a profound lack of acceptance of death even under the most obvious circumstances.
At Death’s Door has been adapted for both a TV pilot on end of life care featuring a few of the most dramatic stories from the book, as well as a documentary.
