Welcome to the fourth episode of SPIRIT & RECOVERY, our 5-part podcast series exploring powerful healing modalities, philosophies and soulful practices that are designed to support recovery – on all levels – from trauma, addiction, harmful behaviors and more.
How do you define recovery? I think of recovery as the process of recovering the initiation and the potentiality of your life. It can also be seen as an opportunity to explore new and innovative ways of healing, growing and flourishing in a rapidly changing world.
In this episode we’re joined by Dr. Bayo Akomolafe, a celebrated international speaker, posthumanist thinker, poet, teacher, public intellectual, essayist, psychologist and author. Rooted with the Yoruba people, Dr. Bayo is the Founder of The Emergence Network, host of the online postactivist course/festival series, ‘We Will Dance with Mountains’ and lectures at Pacifica Graduate Institute, California and University of Vermont.
In this conversation we explore the redefinition of recovery and re-pair, the power of uncertainty and the reevaluation of what we fear.
