Acclaimed singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette shares insights from her journey of psychological and spiritual exploration through the lens of her iconic song lyrics. Here she delves into themes of community, vulnerability, parenting, and living a life of service and curious inquiry. Morissette offers a powerful invitation to embrace our interconnectivity and keep the light in our eyes ablaze and says, “Any conversation about art is about God to me because they're synonymous.” She shares thoughts about aliveness, “Just supporting people in knowing who they are is a big piece of what I do and the empowerment that comes from that…that aliveness that I sing about in Ablaze, keeping the light in our eyes . . . There are so many ways to fall asleep, all done from multiple parts that just want to help and protect. But this sense of aliveness is our birthright and keeping it cooking along. We're figuring it out in real time, aren't we?”. (hosted by Travis Glen Sebera)
