spiritual wanderlust podcast
Exploring the wild, untamed frontiers of the interior life
Welcome to the Spiritual Wanderlust podcast! In each episode, I talk with inspiring guests—contemplative teachers, embodiment experts, neuropsychologists, and mystics—about their spiritual practices, path to healing, and search for the divine.
I'm your host, Kelly Deutsch. As a former nun and neuroscience aficionado, I bring you 19 years of contemplative practice and curiosity.
With a wily blend of ancient wisdom, scientific research, and outright mischief, we'll explore topics like divine intimacy, trauma, somatic tools, and how our vulnerability leads us to wholeness.
Launched in August 2021 as a live video podcast on Contemplative Monk, it has already attracted tens of thousands of weekly listeners. Listen to our latest episodes below, and be sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode!
