The Personal Blog of Ilyana Kadushin

Welcome to my coaching blog
where we look at the voice, public speaking
and what happens when art meets activism.

Resist the Outrage

HOW CAN WE BE IN THE RESISTANCE AGAINST THE SEEMINGLY ENDLESS ABUSES OF POWER, DEATH OF ETHICS AND DIVISIVE TACTICS WITHOUT BEING CAUGHT IN THE CYCLE OF OUTRAGE THAT KEEPS US FROM LIVING IN THE LIGHT?
EVERY DAY WE ARE FED SHOCKING NEWS THAT TESTS US AND OUR OWN MORAL FIBER AS CITIZENS OF THE STATES OF AMERICA. AND WHEN THE TRIGGERS KEEP COMING, DO YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE IN AN ENDLESS LOOP OF REACTIONS TO THEM? I GET THAT AS HUMANS WE REACT, BUT WHERE IS THE “ACTION’ IN IT? REACTION WITHOUT ACTION IS NOT CUTTING IT, ITS JUST CLOGGING THE AIR AND OUR EYES WITH OUTRAGE.
OUR EYES MUST STAY OPEN TO EACH OF OUR OWN LIVES, OUR COMMUNITIES AND THE WORLD AT LARGE. BUT HOW? HOW CAN WE POSSIBLY KEEP VIGILANT OF THE 24 HOUR NEWS CYCLES, SOCIAL MEDIA’S DAILY OUTRAGE AND TRIGGERS AND HAVE ROOM TO SEE THE LIGHT AND GOOD THAT IS HAPPENING EVERY DAY AS WELL? MY FEAR IS THAT THE OUTRAGE, WHICH GROWS LARGER EVERY DAY, WHICH GETS ALL THE AIR TIME, BECOMES THE NORM AND WE ECLIPSE ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE ARE DOING IN THE WORLD. WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THIS? MY OWN ANSWER TO THIS  IS, EQUANIMITY. EFFORT AND SURRENDER. OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE IT ALL, THE DARK AND THE LIGHT. JUST MAKE SURE THE DARK DOES NOT ECLIPSE THE LIGHT.

Q&A WITH ILYANA KADUSHIN, NARRATOR OF DISAPPEARING EARTH

It’s not an easy feat to create one complex and beautifully written novel by weaving together multiple characters and their stories. Debut novel Disappearing Earth accomplishes it. It’s also not easy to bring a novel like that to life in the audiobook, but award-winning narrator (and singer, lyricist, and multimedia performance artist!) Ilyana Kadushin brilliantly does.

Follow along as Ilyana tells us more about her experience narrating Disappearing Earth and as we learn a little bit more about her.
