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
