It seems that our creative selves exist due to longings — for answers, revelations, and even belonging. It is the paradoxical task us humans have to be fueling the creative impulses while simultaneously feeling a sense of belonging.

We speak with two creative individuals who long for things that are both outside and within themselves.

We’ll talk with Trinity De Guzman, one of the founders of Ayahuasca Healings,  a Peruvian spiritual retreat that has become the first church in America to offer Ayahuasca rituals to the public.

We’ll also chat with Ellen Bass, an award-winning poet from Santa Cruz whose recent book of poetry, Like A Beggar, was featured on the New Yorker Poetry Podcast. Her poems have appeared in hundreds of journals and anthologies, including The Atlantic Monthly and The American Poetry Review.

Also, check out our video as we take questions out to the streets of NYC!

You can also watch Zach and Lisa discuss the topic of this week’s podcast.
