Join Bernard Alvarez as he welcomes Emmy award-winning independent documentary director/writer/producer and author Elena Mannes for an exploration of animal spirituality and the ability of animals to communicate with humans even in the afterlife.
Elena Mannes an award-winning independent documentary director/writer/producer with honors that include six Emmy Awards, a George Foster Peabody Award, two Directors Guild of America Awards, and nine Cine Golden Eagles. She has written, directed, and produced series and documentaries for CBS, PBS, and ABC. But she considers her greatest honor to be the journey she took with the remarkable being, her “soul dog” Brio. When he came into her life, it changed completely. She was a driven, ambitious, Type A network TV producer, trained to be skeptical and very wary of anything in the realm of the paranormal. Her experience with Brio led her into the world of animal communicators, telepathy, and mediums. Her search for a lasting and meaningful connection with a dog led her to cross the boundaries of reason and material reality and to believe that it’s possible to communicate with a fellow creature —even after physical death. Mannes invites readers to see animals as thinking, feeling, spiritual beings whose connections with us extend far beyond life and death.
