On this podcast, popular storyteller Kamla Kapur tells us about her own experience of the current world situation. She gives us an intimate portrait of her day-to-day quarantine life, full of panic and wonder, confronting death and giving thanks to Life. We discuss many themes of the coronavirus pandemic: our connection to the invisible, exploring the universe within, the energy of the earth, and the opportunity to relinquish the unnecessary attachments we’ve carried for too long. A soul made real through a rich life of suffering and triumph, Kamla Kapur blesses us with her human vulnerability in this episode.
Kamla K. Kapur is the author of Ganesha Goes to Lunch, Rumi: Tales Of The Spirit, and The Singing Guru. She has also published two books of poetry, As a Fountain in a Garden and Radha Sings: Erotic Love Poems, numerous short stories, and a series of award-winning plays. And the follow-up book to The Singing Guru, Into The Great Heart, will be coming out on the 28th of this month. She divides her time living in the Kullu Valley in the Indian Himalayas and in Southern California. Her books draw on the wisdom of the Hindu, Sikh, and Sufi traditions.
