Show Notes

Dáreece Walker talks with Humanitou about his artwork, which combines race, identity and religion into socio-political responses. We talk about his work that speaks against police brutality, and his series that celebrates black fathers and addresses the lack of positive imagery of black men in society. We navigate creative process, and facing fear, vulnerability and one's inner critic. Among other things. More at humanitou.com.

85: Ayya Dhammadhira, Buddhist nun, on loss and impermanence, letting go and a quest for deeper knowing

Sister Ayya Dhammadhira is a Bhikkhuni, a fully ordained Buddhist nun, who has lived, worked and practiced in Buddhist monasteries around the world -- and now does so independently -- these past 20 or so years. We talk about Ayya’s upbringing in a Catholic family and the family tragedy that sent her inward with her spiritual questions at 12 years old. We talk about what carried Ayya from her young adult life as a married school teacher across the transom from layperson to ordained Buddhist monastic. We talk about her family’s reaction to this radical shift, too. Among other things. More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, produced and hosted by Adam Williams.

111: Big Samir, of The Reminders, on empowerment, providing 'the soundtrack to protests,' and Snoop Dogg

Big Samir, the bilingual lyricist and emcee of The Reminders, grew up in Belgium and the Congo, and in a single-mother home with the images of MLK, Jr., Marcus Garvey and Malcolm X on the wall. We talk about his rising above the challenges of his youth, and the empowering and loving messages of The Reminders. We talk about The Reminders sharing stages with some of Samir's influences, like Snoop Dogg, Rakim, Lauryn Hill, Redman, Method Man and so many more. Even though the music he and his musical partner and wife, Aja Black, make is conscious and activist-energized -- "the soundtrack to the protests" -- Samir rejects wearing the "activist" label. He tells why. Along with a lot more of his story, including about his Muslim faith, his presence as a father, and the cheat codes to life. More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, produced and hosted by Adam Williams.

Adam Williams, creator of Humanitou, gets into a topic that he's really not comfortable talking about: love. In this solo episode, he starts with an odd little story that finally got him to speak on this issue he's got with love. He explores why he's not comfortable having this talk with you today, why that’s got to change and how he's changing it. He also briefly digresses into the nuances of karma, what it really is and what it really isn’t. And he shares some other things that he thinks you’ll find useful in your own relationship to love.  More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, hosted and produced by Adam Williams.
