Welcome to Spiritual Wanderlust, the podcast exploring the wild, untamed frontiers of the interior life.


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 18 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, 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!

Rebellious Women: Hildegard, Joan of Arc, Dorothy Day and Sigrid Undset

with Laura Michele Diener

History is full of women misbehaving. In time periods when speaking out could get you burned at the stake, some women had the audacity to speak their minds anyway.
