Paul Goldman is both an Ecstatic Poet Performer and published poet. His CD, Wild Joy Released:The Ecstatic Poetry of Paul Goldman, includes his own Spoken Word renditions of his Ecstatic Poetry and the musical accompaniment of Tom Jacobs.
Both the CD and the companion book, Wild Joy:Ruminations, have received critical acclaim. Vern Barnet, Faith and Beliefs columnist for The Kansas City Star, in writing about Wild Joy:Ruminations, said in part, "The wild, holy energy within this book can burst forth only from a man who has lost himself in love, such as Rumi and other seers, whose poetry this volume now joins."
Paul Goldman hosts the Gratitude Open Mic Night at Stone Spirit Lodge in Kansas City, Missouri as a venue to promote all artists and performers.
His website, features his Ecstatic Poetry Blog. Paul Goldman has a fan base of over 8,200 at his Facebook Page, Wild Joy:The Ecstatic Poetry of Paul Goldman.
The sign on the door of the Metaphysical Shop, Stone Spirit Lodge, that Paul operates with his wife, Dawn, says "Awaken Your Wild Joy Within" and that is what separates Paul Goldman from being just another poet. He is a man who is increasingly looked to as being a spiritual beacon, one who gathers people together so that all may quicken their awakening to their own divinity and to a connection to a common Source.
