Reclaiming Self, With Willow Defebaugh & Efu Nyaki

Video with Willow Defebaugh, Sister Euphrasia (Efu) Nyaki on Wednesday 19th October 2022

True transformation starts from within. One of the greatest struggles of patriarchal domination is how it alienates women from their own internal power and agency. We will look at what mechanisms cause this, and what structures, attitudes and practices we can adopt to begin to reclaim self, shift our internal narratives, build power from within, and trust intuition and emotion. How do we restore ourselves from a cisheteropatriarchal capitalist society that is frequently violent, exploitative and oppressive, in a way that does not replicate and reproduce these structures of harm?
