Lisa Kohn (To the Moon And Back)

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Lisa Kohn was born to hippie parents and raised in New York City’s East Village in the 1970s. At age 10, Lisa’s mother had her pledging their lives to the Unification Church (the “Moonies”) and self-appointed Messiah, Reverend Sun Myung Moon.

Lisa’s newly released memoir tells a powerful story of how, over time, she has come to terms with a life defined by insecurity and absurdity and has learned to live a life of joyful presence.
