Welcome to conversation and poetry with Joel David Lesses, a poet whose spiritual investigations both verbal and written are found in poetry and on the podcast entitled Unraveling Religion. Other passions include the intersection of poetry, spirituality, science and phenomenology shared and disparate in the human experience, and transformative power of self inquiry and introspection through contemplative and meditative practices with a belief that the fundamental transformation of individuals and our collective comes through barreling inward, relentlessly, the question, “Who am I?” or “What am I” or “What is the matter with me?” the latter being the question which after years of examination, shattered his false sense of self, the work of integration of that experience being an ongoing work in progress. Joel was also voted by 2014 Buffalo’s Artvoice, Best Poet and loves existential exploration of our human condition. HIs work in progress of prose and poetry and letters is entitled Odyssey of Autumn’s Breath: An American Collection and Life.   

Joel: "Point of clarification, Hashem is the name of G-d, not the "name to Jews" due to audio anomalies it sounds incorrectly like that statement was made, the audio recording "jumped over" very brief portions of the interview."
