Living With Ourselves, Together

KINSHIP: An Online Course Talk with Charles Eisenstein

In this session we will explore how the individual shows up in communities, in particular intentional communities, which are on the rise, and how tensions arise when the individual is misconceived, neglected, or demonised. We will explore how the individual must first take care of themselves before serving others - “you can’t pour from an empty cup”. We will look at the individual as both an agentic “node”, and part of an interconnected, co-dependent network, never wholly separate. The work of our times is learning how to live well with others, but in order to do so, we must learn to live well with ourselves.

This course is part of Week 4 of the KINSHIP Online Course. In Week 4, we dive into The Individual.

We will be exploring the role of the individual in relation to kinship. This week is unique in that there is a sense of “going against the grain”. Many narratives around community and kinship have suggested that the notion of the individual is to blame for the collapse of healthy relationships. It is true that the individualism peddled by capitalism has wreaked havoc. However it is the “ism” that has caused harm, not the individual. In fact, attempts to erase the sacredness of the individual create immense harm. When people feel that they are not seen, and that their needs don’t matter, harm tends to follow. We will explore how cultivating a healthy sense of our individuality allows us to become responsible in relationship - to ourselves and to others. Can we have kinship with our own souls and selves? Nuance is key here - because we are both individuals and we are not. It is a “both/and” situation.

KINSHIP: An Online Course

Course Website: /// KINSHIP is an exploration into being together in a time when being apart has fractured our relationship to self, other, and the more-than-human in ways that have left us painfully adrift. It is a timely collective inquiry into how community, relationality, and belonging can revitalise our sense of aliveness as creatures of and participants in this animate earth, and how such a renewal might influence our actions towards greater flourishing.
