Kazi Adi Shakti – Why Buddhism is Basically Useless and Why That is Good News

Conversations in Process

On this episode of Conversations in Process, Jay McDaniel and Jared Morningstar are joined by Kazi Adi Shakti to discuss her provocative and nuanced essay “Buddhism is Basically Useless”. Kazi is an artist and theorist whose theoretical work primarily consists in the study and creative synthesis of process thought, Madhyamaka Buddhism, Western Marxism and Eco-feminist ethics. She graduated with a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she majored in Interdisciplinary Sculpture with a focus on computer modeling, 3D scanning and digital fabrication and currently works as a scanning specialist and digital artist in the 3D digitization industry. In addition to this, she also blogs regularly at her site www.holo-poiesis.com. In this conversation, Kazi discusses her essay and why the idea of Buddhism being basically useless is in fact a positive. She describes that one of her aims with this piece is trying to get people to question their attachments and the identities they create—even identifying with traditional Buddhism. So to assert that Buddhism is basically useless is to acknowledge the emptiness of the religion and to resist taking it as an object of clinging. Jared asks what kinds of Buddhists Kazi was trying to reach with this critical article, whether it was more Western Buddhist modernists, or if she meant this critique to cut against traditional Buddhists as well. In response, Kazi shows how her argument can be critical of either, even as there are important differences between the dispositions of these two kinds of Buddhists. However, she also finds inspiration among all these different ways of being Buddhist, stating that even secular Buddhism has some important insights in recognizing the emptiness of myth and traditional doctrine. Jay then asks Kazi about an important idea running throughout the essay that Kazi uses in a number of different ways; namely, the notion of touching oneself. She charts a continuity between physical self-pleasure to intellectual self-knowledge and finally to self-reflexive gnosis—a manifestation of the awakening experience so central to Buddhist spirituality. In all of these, Kazi notes how there is no medium for the interaction beyond oneself, contrasting this perspective with views in Western philosophy such as those of Immanuel Kant where all perception and knowledge can never get directly at things in themselves. For Kazi, Buddhism is at its best when it is able to facilitate this direct self-touching in these various meanings, but none of these are ultimately dependent on the religion hence why Buddhism is useless in one sense. Kazi's essay concludes with a sudden switch to an almost devotional tone, mentioning the “infinite loving-compassion and boundless luminous-vision of the uncountable multiplicity of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas”—a stark contrast from the critical mood of the article up to this point. Jay notices this shift and asks about Kazi's intent with this sudden change in direction. She explains that she tries to mix the perspective of critique which acknowledges the emptiness of all things with a more positive, constructive standpoint more grounded in a vision of dependent origination. More than just trying to balance these two perspectives, Kazi attempts to show how they are in fact inseparably bound to each other, evoking the Daoist image of the yin and the yang where both opposites actually exist within each other. This wide-ranging dialogue concludes with a discussion of what Whitehead's thought could potentially bring to this conversation, particularly through his aesthetic theories. This prompts Jay to consider what the ideas discussed might look like were they communicated by some medium other than language, such as visual art or music.

Imagine being in a hospital bed and your boss is calling you, asking you where your work laptop and productivity reports are. I'm sure you've worked at a job that didn't care about you, and only cared about your productivity. Hell, we live in a capitalist society, and community mental health is no different. A lot of the time it can feel like an emotionally abusive relationship. Creating your own journey, your own path, and doing so within your values, beliefs, and passions is special. It's bold.

We talk about being yourself, being willing to say FU*K the mold, and how to reconnect back to your roots. Celina talks about... Her experiences with racism and microaggressions at her job. Being in the hospital and having her boss calling her demanding that she hands in her notes, laptop, and reports. "Money Flows to Me Freely, and Effortlessly, and I Make Money Doing The Things That I Love." The balance between doing what she loves and working within her values. Her great-grandmother's indigenous and sacred healing practices. How she was going to be a healer one way or another, and that academia was just the vessel. The era of psychotherapy is changing, and thankfully for the better. We're starting to move into an era where culture is finally considered, and not everything has to be "evidence-based treatment." More about Celina: Celina specializes in using creativity and ritual for healing the heart, mind, and spirit. She is a creative soul, a wounded healer, an artist, therapist, and art therapist. For the last 20 years, she has been working with mentors, healers, and teachers to deepen her spiritual practice, study meditation, neuroscience, and begin to earn about the ancient healing practice of Curanderismo (traditional Mexican spiritual healing). Her creative, spiritual, and academic paths have converged to support an approach to healing that pulls knowledge from the ancestors and contemporary science to reclaim ancient wisdom in new ways. She holds a masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy, a BA in Psychology and BFA in Studio Art. Her artwork is intimately connected with her personal healing and has been exhibited in galleries and exhibitions in the Los Angeles area.  Celina has 20 years of experience in the mental health field where she began working in residential and in-patient psychiatric facilities, specializing in adults and children overcoming trauma and severe mental illness. She continued working with children and families in the non-profit sector and has been working in private practice and consultation since 2014. She holds virtual individual therapy sessions in California, and offers an inter state community care membership program, as well as an annual women's retreat in Mexico. She is the founder of a therapist community for unconventional psychotherapists called Not Your Mom's Therapist which focuses on radical inclusion and humility by highlighting intersectional psychotherapy provided by people who self identify as alternative, strange, different, and/or magical. The community continues to grow exponentially and now includes several sister groups including burnout support, interdisciplinary mental health, and BIPOC ancestral healing.

Industry expert Julianne Taylor joins us today to discuss monetizing social media and the importance of getting your face on camera as a designer or business owner. Julianne shares with us why your presence is important on social media, discusses the work behind content creation, and how mindset plays an essential role in showing up. Listen to this episode as Julianne gives us some amazing tips and tricks to grow a successful business online. IN THIS EPISODE: [3:18] What is Julianne's definition of an influencer and a micro-influencer? [4:53] What is the secret sauce that can help people get better in the influencer space? [6:50] Connecting with your community and getting your face on video is important. [9:45] What are the income/perks that influencers can expect?  [12:11] How did it come to be that Julianne came to be on the Today Show? [14:50] How do you get past the fear of showing up on camera? [16:25] Julianne discusses the mindset and its important role in people's success. [17:56] What is Julianne doing now?   [18:40] What does a day in the life of Julianne look like right now? [20:23] How to transition away from a scarcity mindset and create an abundance mindset.  KEY TAKEAWAYS: Service with content creates engagement and trust for your community. Partner with long-term brands on products that are used all the time and that you love.  If you are experiencing fear, shift away from the idea of content creation and all the involvement and the pressure to plan all the content and change the thought process to documentation. Document your life. A day in the life… Everybody started at zero followers, take action, do it scared. Just start and take messy action, and you'll get more comfortable.  As women, we are socialized to make ourselves smaller, not be too loud, not take up too much space, and not be too much. Stop making ourselves smaller, show up authentically, and advocate for the expertise and value we all bring to the table.  RESOURCE LINKS: Julianne's Website Julianne's TikTok Julianne's Instagram Taylor Burke Home BIO: Julianne Taylor is a Charleston, SC based business coach, content creator, and product designer.

Marley Freeman Portrait by Sarah Rice, The New York Times Marley Freeman is a New York-based artist who combines the disciplines of abstract and representational painting. Her unique facture is characterized by the hand-mixed gesso, acrylic, and oils she uses to create meticulous, psychologically-charged color fields. Through this technical process, she studies the ways in which paint “wants to perform.” “Pigments have their own ways of acting,” Freeman says, “and I became obsessed with learning their traits.” Freeman's distinct vocabulary of forms is made up of brushy strokes, color washes, and shapes that freely transform across the picture plane. The influence of textile design is evident in her close attention to the textural subtleties of her paints, and her reverence for their surface effects—their impressions in the warp and weft of the canvas. Freeman completed her MFA at the Milton Avery Graduate School of Arts at Bard College, New York, and her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Freeman's work can be found in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York; RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island; the San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio, Texas; and the Colorado University Art Museum, Bolder, Colorado.

Cerebral Women Art Talks Podcast

Ep.116 features Cameroon-born artist Ludovic Nkoth. For him, displacement and deferral occupy a familiar place at the margins of the stories he tells. With swirled and meandering brushstrokes, Nkoth's practice in figurative painting broaches the ongoing negotiation of transatlantic migration--a direct rumination on diaspora history and on his own expatriation to the US at the age of 13. Melding Cameroonian aesthetic motifs and vivid coloration with postcolonial allegory, Nkoth explores the formation and fragmentation of identity. Throughout his work, Nkoth's figures participate in the fictions and lived experiences that comprise his own identity synthesis; each muddled expression and porous boundary imbues his paintings with the tender incandescence of a distant memory. The navigation of both belonging and outsider hood in African and American spaces underscores much of Nkoth's work, and informs the future building of kinship, solidarity, and self-determination that is central to his practice. Ludovic Nkoth was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon in 1994, and lives and works in New York City. Nkoth completed his BFA at the University of South Carolina and holds an MFA in painting from Hunter College. Recent solo exhibitions include Transferred Memories (Work No Dey) (2022) at Massimo de Carlo Gallery in London, and Don't Take This Too (2021) at François Ghebaly in Los Angeles. Nkoth was featured in the group exhibition Fire, Figure Fantasy (2022) at ICA Museum in Miami, as well as in group exhibitions at Ross+Kramer, New York and Jeffrey Deitch, LA. His work is held in the collection of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and the ICA Museum in Miami.   Photo Credit: Mara Poch Artist website https://www.lnkoth.com/ Massimo de Carlos MASSIMODECARLO Luce Gallery Installation Views Ludovic Nkoth You Sea Us 168 1 Galleria d'Arte Contemporanea a Torino Luce Gallery Francois Ghebaly Gallery - LA Don't Take This Too  – François Ghebaly Gallery, LA 2021  PAFA https://www.pafa.org/events/ludovic-nkoth-031622   Go Upstate https://www.goupstate.com/story/news/local/2022/05/19/dorman-high-grad-ludovic-nkoth-artwork-global-following-usc-upstate-high-museum-atlanta/7131341001/  Juxtapoz  https://www.juxtapoz.com/news/magazine/features/ludovic-nkoth-a-dear-statement-to-the-soul/  Ross Kramer https://rkgallery.com/artist/ludovic-nkoth Art of choice https://www.artofchoice.co/converse-with-the-expressive-style-of-ludovic-nkoth/ Christies https://www.christies.com/features/9-intriguing-portraits-of-family-members-10998-1.aspx Superposition Gallery  http://superpositiongallery.com/conversations/2020/4/11/interview-with-ludovic-nkoth Francois Ghebaly http://ghebaly.com/work/ludovic-nkoth-dont-take-this-too/
