"Ubuntu philosophy, meaning "humanity." It is often translated as "I am because we are," or "humanity towards others," but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity."
My uncle sadly committed suicide in January of 2018. It was my first experience of a family member ending their life and it led me down a road of discovery and self-enrichment.
I felt motivated by this tragic event to embark on a discovery path to see what underlies this painful experience and, as a result, I was able to liaise and connect with people from a variety of backgrounds and professions on the subject.
I am therefore, through the radio show, hoping to open up conversations but also change the way in which we talk about the depth of our pain and sadness and encourage a safe place for listeners and guests alike to share and exchange. Each week, I will be inviting brave, open-hearted guests to share/bless us with their experiences, either personal or professional.
I find hearing people’s life journeys cathartic, sacred and rewarding. Sharing your mind is good and is essential in the times we live in, as mental health is definitely on the rise."
