552. Words for your soul – with Arielle Estoria

I am obsessed with spoken word poetry, which is why I’m so excited to be talking with Arielle Estoria. Besides being a spoken word poet, she’s an emcee and event host speaker, model, and actress. She believes that we are all creative — we’ve just told ourselves it isn’t practical. She teaches us some tools to try and reclaim our creativity. This girl totally speaks my language. You’ll love everything she has to say, including the poem she shares with us. This is a soul-filling conversation.


Question Highlights:

  • How did you know that part of your soul needed to be exposed?
  • Can you elaborate on creating structure around your creativity?
  • How did you discover and nurture your creativity?
  • How do you piece together a creative, varied life?
  • How do you teach poetry?
  • What are some of your favorite poetry prompts?
  • What is a truth you have learned about relationships?
  • What is a truth for you around business or career?
