[Báyò Akómoláfé, Ph.D.]

What does it mean that we have a crisis in form – that our problems go deeper than the visible systems we often attribute them to? What might we gain from surrendering human control and centrality, slowing down even as we feel increasing urgency to address social injustice and climate change.

The times are urgent; let us slow down. Slowing down is losing our way – not a human capacity or human capability. It is the invitations that are now in the world-at-large, inviting us to listen deeply, to be keen, to be fresh, to be quick with our heels, to follow the sights and sounds and smells of the world.

In this episode, we welcome Dr. Báyò Akómoláfé. Rooted with the Yoruba people in a more-than-human world, Báyò 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 and We Will Tell our Own Story: The Lions of Africa Speak, Báyò Akómoláfé is the Visionary Founder of The Emergence Network and host of the online postactivist course, We Will Dance with Mountains.
