lightupwithshua podcast by Shua

Podcast in English & Urdu 

My name is Shua and I am the founder and host of lightupwithShua, a weekly podcast on Conscious Living and Parenting, published every Wednesday.

This is a bilingual podcast. So far I have published about 90 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 is starting soon and the first topic is Environment and Climate Change. Hope you will watch or listen to it.

Because 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. So, stay tuned by visiting the website, instagram, and facebook pages.

A little story:

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 them people.

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 they 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 before or didn’t articulate it the way they do during our interviews. 

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.   

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!

Her dissertation, "Creation, Food, and Ecological Ethics: The Garden as Mediation," examined the potential of congregations to heal the Earth and build communities grounded in ecological peace and justice.

She has written, "When churches cultivate vegetable gardens, their communities are strengthened through a greater commitment to eco-justice.... Cultivating a sacred relationship with the 'The Garden of God' can overcome our alienation from nature and from one another."
