Cultivate radical understanding, love and resilience in the midst of the Anthropocene
A four-month communal exploration through our current epoch in time which can also be described as the Anthropocene, the meta-crisis, the Kali Yuga, or the end of the world as we know it.
The aim of this course is to create a deeper collective understanding of the current crisis moment, how we situate ourselves within it, and how to cultivate practices to deepen empathy, resilience, and collective liberation. The course will help cultivate equity consciousness, expose the underpinnings of our economic system(s), foster deeper ecological interconnectedness, and co-develop “contextually relevant” etiquette (the manner in which we approach and interact with other beings, human and more-than-human). We will examine our unconscious agreements with the political economy and connect the dots between equity, economy, ecology and etiquette.
This course will offer analysis of intersecting systems of oppression, their various entanglements, and suggest possibilities of what may be needed to dismantle them within our own bodies, our communities, and the broader culture-at-large. We will offer theoretical frameworks that are anchored in concrete, embodied practices to create the lived possibilities needed for our collective survival with the Earth.
Each module will consist of a three-hour discourse session (with guest speakers) with the full group of up to 100 people. There will be separate, more intimate two-hour dialogue/integration sessions in smaller cohorts of up to 50 people each, facilitated by co-facilitators Carlin Quinn and Alnoor Ladha. Please choose the cohort that works best for your schedule.
Discourse Sessions (All Cohorts): One Saturday/Month, 9am-12pm PST
Cohort A: One Additional Saturday/Month, 9am-11am PST, plus one Sunday in December 9am-11am PST
Cohort B: One Monday/Month, 9am-11am PST, plus one Sunday in December 9am-11am PST
Contextualizing the Anthropocene w/ Alnoor Ladha & Carlin Quinn | Guest Speaker: Tiokasin Ghosthorse
This session sets the frame for our four months together and focuses on deepening our collective understanding of the dominant ideology, how the inner and outer mirror each other, and how the logic of late-stage capitalism is playing out in our bodies, communities, and culture-at-large.
Post-Capitalist Futures | Guest Speakers: Orland Bishop, Lynn Murphy, & Jason Hickel
This module explores what post-capitalist futures could look like. What are some of the lived possibilities that already exist? What are potential pathways for transition? What futures are we being called into by the ancestors related to healing, money, gift economy, and tapping into generative fields of creation?
Creativity, Eros and Post-Capitalist Futures | Guest Speaker: Claudio Miranda, Brontë Velez, & Resmaa Menakem
This module explores what conditions are necessary to help usher in post-capitalist realities. What is equity consciousness? How do we shift the values of the dominant culture? How do we create new/emerging/ancient ways of being and knowing without replicating the injustices of the past?
Living, Creating, & Dying Well in the Anthropocene | Guest Speakers: Bayo Akomolafe, Vanessa Andreotti & V (formerly known as Eve Ensler)
Our final session will focus on ways by which we can approach and embody post-capitalist realities in how we live, create and die well in the midst of the meta-crisis.
