Welcome to another inspiring episode of Language of the Soul. We're joined by the soulful and captivating Marina Bakica— actress, filmmaker and multi-media artist. Together, we discuss the power of narrative to not only mirror our world but to reshape it. From Marina's impressive theater training through her latest vehicles of expression—photography and cinema—this episode promises a panoramic view of how story, in all its forms, can sow seeds of empathy while nurturing tolerance through exposure to 'the other.'

Now more than ever, it’s tempting to throw our hands in the air and surrender to futility in the face of global strife. Storytellers know we must renew hope daily. We are being called upon to embrace our interconnectivity, transform paradigms, and trust the ripple effect will play its part. In the words of Lion King producer Don Hahn (Episode 8), “Telling stories is one of the most important professions out there right now.” We here at Language of the Soul Podcast could not agree more.
