Lostness, Trauma and Stories of Transformation with Bayo Akomolafe

Trained in clinical psychology, Bayo Akomolafe, Ph.D. now works as an author, speaker, and professor. He is recognized worldwide for his thoughtful and unconventional take on global crises, trauma and social change. 

Bayo starts off by sharing a proverb from his Yoruba people: “In order to find your way, you must become lost”. This leads to an invitation to being in the world in a different way. 

He offers an alternative, non-pathologizing way to think about trauma and our adaptations to it. Instead of pathologizing what we are afraid of, he invites us to “lean into the cracks, the failures… and maybe by performing your way through those cracks, you may find other ways of being in the world.” Throughout this episode, Bayo offers a possible new vision through stories of transformation.

About Bayo: Bayo Akomolafe (Ph.D.), rooted with the Yoruba people in a more-than-human world, is the father to Alethea and Kyah, the grateful life-partner to Ije, son and brother. A widely celebrated international speaker, posthumanist thinker, poet, teacher, public intellectual, essayist, and author of two books, These Wilds Beyond our Fences: Letters to My Daughter on Humanity’s Search for Home (North Atlantic Books) and We Will Tell our Own Story: The Lions of Africa Speak, Bayo Akomolafe is the Chief Curator of The Emergence Network and host of the online post-activist course, ‘We Will dance with Mountains’.
