How do we listen well? How do we listen with our own bodies, and listen to our own ancestral pasts? How has our attention been commodified, and how may we reclaim it? We dig into the themes of ecosomatics, deep ecology, evolutionary biology, ancestral lineage, and more. Join us as we make space to listen, traversing the worlds of sensorial awareness, multispecies communication, evolutionary biology, deep time thinking, and more. We will reach to Joanna Macy’s, David G. Haskell’s, Crystal Wilkinson’s, Kalyanee Mam’s work, and more, alongside diving into ecosomatic exercises.
The Study Club will begin by following the threads of these questions – offering a selection of curated content (essays, podcasts and short films) each month – by writers, activists and artists exploring these themes in their work. In the session, we will come together to reflect on our collective insights, and how we can apply the learning to our social change work.
This space is for people seeking to dive beneath the surface of everyday engagement – and to dedicate the time to learn, think, be inspired and nourished in their practices.
