New - The Wonderstruck Podcast, taking listeners on a journey to moments that can transform lives

Press Release · New York, NY, USA ·

Dr. Elizabeth Rovere, PsyD, launches Wonderstruck, a first of its kind podcast that examines the wonder of being, of consciousness, and the extraordinary. A clinical psychologist, yoga teacher, Harvard Divinity School graduate, and seeker, Rovere will explore experiences of awe, and wonder through thoughtful conversations with experts and experiencers, including shamans and scientists, academics and artists. From radical visions to fire-based rituals, from pursuing a rainbow body in Tibet to finding the luminous in your everyday walk, this podcast dives deep into the what, wonder, and wow of being with levity and thoughtful curiosity. Guests include award winning comedian Russell Brand, famed podcaster Fearne Cotton, and best-selling author Dr. Dacher Keltner.

“My goal with this podcast is to open a door to phenomena that have often been hidden,” said Rovere. “This is a quest for answers and insights and to bring the out there, in here. Be prepared for topics to veer off the beaten path, for out-of-the-box thinkers to express diverse views, and even for a few heated exchanges. All will occur within the context of mutual curiosity and acceptance. We see mystery as the gateway to self-discovery, often leading to personal transformation. We invite you to listen and ask questions. Through all of this, we hope you find yourself wonderstruck.”

Wonderstruck was inspired by the idea of being struck by the wrinkle in time, the glitch in the field, the liminal space filled with awe and wonder. Such moments evoke questions about consciousness and lead to insights and discoveries beyond our everyday perceptual framework. Experiences of awe and wonder can transform us, awaken our intuition, inspire vision, and cultivate our creativity and imagination. Wonderstruck explores consciousness and those both humbling and empowering experiences that connect us to something greater than ourselves while generating a sense of community with others and our natural world. These tales are so astounding, sometimes they are misunderstood, dismissed, and even ignored as they don’t fit our tendency for tidy rationality and reductionism, yet they are transformational.
