Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Rabbi Matthew Ponak discuss the following:
What is your story? Can you give us an understanding of what you do as well as how and why you came to do it?
What sort of person did you write your book for?
What can contemporary spiritual seekers learn from the Jewish Mystical tradition? How is the Jewish Mystical tradition uniquely relevant to contemporary spiritual seekers?
Both Embodiment and Kabbalah are big words. Can you unpack both of those words and show our listeners how they relate to each other?
The pages of your book have a very unique look to them. Can you describe the unique layout of the pages of your book to our listeners and explain the logic behind this layout?
What are you up to now? How can people learn more about your work and get in touch with you?
