Podcast in English & Urdu

My name is Shua and I am the owner of LUWS ACADEMY LLC (USA) and the founder & host of lightupwithShua, a weekly podcast on Conscious Living and Parenting, published weekly.

I hope you all have passed through the Covid times without too much loss and more to gain. The virus is still hanging around us and we have learned to live with it to some extent. May this pandemic eradicates sooner than later. 

This is a bilingual podcast. So far I have published about 100 plus episodes. Season 1 was my a time of learning and making connections. I had some amazing guests who were supportive and graciously took time out to come to the studios in Groton, MA or be on Skype or available in Person. That is still happening. I feel very lucky and blessed to have amazing good guests on my shows.

Season 2 started with interviews with younger people in Urdu as well. Did some travel shows while in Pakistan, more coming on that.

Season 3 started with  Environment and Climate Change. Hope you had a chance to watch or listen to it.

LightupwithShua podcast is for people like you and me, who are full of life, always learning, striving to get better and move on to mastery.

My podcast may help people, individuals, parents and anyone who is willing to evolve and grow by listening to rich conversations from people of diverse backgrounds and experiences.

You and I can together learn to solve and transform our problems to solutions. How? Well by listening to the stories of amazing individuals from all age groups, all kinds of professions, cultures, and ethnicities. In addition to listening and doing call to action on the lightupwithShua website and on the shows, you will have the opportunity to attend live shows on Facebook, join the free Facebook group and attend workshops, retreats and programs that are coming up this year 2022. So, stay tuned by visiting the website, instagram, Linkedin and facebook pages.

A thought:

When I was a little young person, I would have liked to listen or watch similar programs where I could hear diverse viewpoints from multicultural backgrounds and learn from  people talking about diverse topics.

I believe this podcast is also helpful for people who are not able to travel far away for whatever reason and get this valuable information in their hands so conveniently through smart devices and other smart technology today. 

I believe that someone, somewhere will benefit from these fascinating conversations doesn't matter who you are. This is to serve you! And I think at the end of the day, that is what matters, what do you think?

In addition to you learning and benefiting from our conversations on LUWS - lightupwithshua, my esteemed interviewees have expressed that my thoughtful questions provides them the opportunity to think about things they never thought of before or didn’t articulate it the way they do during our interviews. So, I guess I bring mostly the best in my interviewees! ;-)

Some of my guests have expressed that their time with me during these interviews will help them to further ponder and transcend through similar issues discussed. So, my hope is that you will also think about the questions and our conversations in ways that will benefit you and those with whom you would like to share these conversations.   

Those who are regular listeners of this podcast might have gathered that I am enjoying the process of meeting people and learning from them. For me, interviewing people is like reading an infinite book, a book with never ending chapters with captivating stories.

This LUWS podcast is for people who are open to the possibilities and ready to learn. Beautiful souls looking to find any opportunity to broaden their horizon, challenge their limits and share their knowledge and experiences. Thank you for listening and watching. And if you like this podcast or any episode, please feel free to send me your comments and feedback!

A little more reminder dear listeners, you will find guests from Native American tribes, African Americans, Pakistani Americans, Jewish Americans, Indian Americans, Swedish, Pakistani, and so many more.

I am a Muslim, Pakistani-American, born in Saudi Arabia, brown immigrant who hosts and interviews Indians/Hindus, Christian-Evangelists, Rabbis, students, people of all genders, housewives, professionals, entrepreneurs, you name it!

This I think is called inclusivity and diversity. Hope you can appreciate and learn with me on this journey! In one podcast, you can find guests who are multinational, multi-faith, multicultural, non-faith, and all, talking about one topic! They are all lighting up our world with great insight and a message of hope!

And lastly, please subscribe, share, rate and review. This will be a tremendous gift to me from you.

Thank you!

Thank you for tuning in to episode 81 on LightupwithShua podcast. I had the opportunity to interview Nuria Garcia on SKYPE. She resides in Paris, France and our conversation was lot of fun and exploration. Hope you will enjoy my open and fun conversation.  

The Art of Islamic Calligraphy by Nuria Garci'a Masip

Born in 1978 in Ibiza, Spain, Nuria Garcia Masip grew up between Spain and the U.S.A. In 1999, after completing her B.A. in French and Spanish Literature at The George Washington University, U.S.A., she traveled to Morocco where she developed an interest in Islamic Art. 

In 2000, she returned to Washington D.C. where she started studying the rik’a sülüs , and nesihscripts with calligrapher ( hattat ) Mohamed Zakariya. 

In 2004, she moved to Istanbul where she continued to study the sülüs and nesih scripts with the master of Mohamed Zakariya, hattat Hasan Çelebi, and with hattat Davut Bektas. In 2007, she received her diploma (icazet ) in these two scripts, signed by her three teachers, under the auspices of IRCICA (Research Center for Islamic History, Art and Culture).

Nuria is currently living in Paris, France, where she teaches and works on calligraphy. She has won prestigious prices in international calligraphy competitions and her work forms part of various private and museum collections. She has also organised numerous workshops and conferences on this art to promote the art calligraphy internationally. Her work is firmly rooted in the classical school of calligraphy and she enjoys preserving the techniques and materials of the tradition.
