Humble the Poet’s instinct for rhyme and rap helps him reveal to heal – and encourages others to live outside their comfort zone. Humble shares deep insights and interesting mementoes from a few psilocybin and ayahuasca trips, with an appreciation for the tough lessons that cleared an emotional blockage and ultimately let the love in. Today, Humble is ready to receive the rose – rather than tear it out. And his evolving view to honour love has shifted his focus towards helping the people he cares for to chase their own dreams too.

Humble’s journey embodies the ultimate in resilience and humility and is representative of a new generation of thinkers and makers. in this episode we discuss:

  • Humble’s last minute change of plans to move to LA due to COVID – and how it has made him re-evaluate how he interacts with family.
  • Recently, he had difficulty focusing on producing work – and how self-acceptance and honesty with his peers helped him cope.
  • How information has been weaponized and positive reinforcement is a better way. It’s important we expose ourselves to sources of ideas and people who think differently than you do – ‘our beliefs are not our identity’. It’s dangerous to think you have all the answers.
  • The origin story of Humble the Poet – and how his name has evolved to mean something different to him. Plus, managing a public persona can take it’s toll.
  • Humble acknowledges the challenges in his youth through directed racism – and how it needs to be revealed in order to be healed.
  • Humble details a few trips on magic mushrooms and ayahuasca. He has just as much appreciation for the fun trips as he does for the tougher trips that provided lessons to clear emotional blockage. Ultimately, a shift in his approach to love allowed him to let it in.
  • How saying ‘I’m sorry’ and saying ‘I’m wrong’ can be both be an act of compassion. Choosing to grow as a person is also choosing to love.
