Escape to the Soul:
Deborah Kahan Kolb and her remarkable journey to finding her voice.
Season 1, Ep. 16
Critically-acclaimed Poet, Dancer, and Filmmaker Deborah Kahan Kolb recounts her remarkable journey after leaving her Hasidic community, three marriages, and the watershed moment she finally found her voice - and a home - in her own soul.
Over the years many of you have asked about my story, my journey. Although my "story" is woven through my poetry and fiction, recently I was lucky to be interviewed by the warm and wonderful hosts of The Bali Effect podcast, about my "story." Take a listen – it's intimate, it's raw... It unnerved me, to be honest. I hope some of you will find inspiration. Plus there’s a surprise (read: unplanned) poetry reading of “An Unusual Collection”!
