Shadow Wolvz was born out of the curious notion that by simply changing our starting point within psychic investigations from "what if there really is life after death?" to asking "what happens now that we know" , paranormal investigations could move from out of the dark and bizarre to the extraordinary. Shadow Wolvz brings depth and compassion to the stories of the dead and brings the conversations back to ask the living "What happens now that you know?"
