Collective Journey to Re-imagining education: Creating your Inner Map

Andreea Gatman

During the practice/ workshop, we create a space for each one to bring an Inquiry for reimagining education. As with the hero’s journey, we go through different passages- we call them 11 acupuncture points. Coming closer to what we might describe as a destination, we find ourselves and more deeper questions. With that image of the destination, we sense and create bridges between (disconnected) worlds, and we hopefully bring that into our everyday practice. This will allow us individually and collectively to work on our capacity to communicate and nourish these worlds (of indigenous and academia, human and more than human etc).
 
“as change could happen through the almost invisible work of developing the capacity to hold/contain as many people to see things in different ways “( Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu)

Activist Scholarship: Inhabiting the Cracks of Academia

Teens and Elders – Intergenerational Connection as Foundation for Learning

Inez Aponte & Valentina Raman

“Connections between generations are essential for the mental health and stability of the nation.” – Margaret Mead.

At a time when young people are facing a multitude of existential challenges and need the support and guidance of the older generation, the disconnect between the generations seems to be growing.

In this session we will draw on our collective wisdom to explore:

Why is it sometimes so hard to connect across the generations?
How can we listen better to each other’s needs and in particular the needs of young people?
Where are the hidden opportunities for intergenerational connection in our day to day lives?

Embodied Ecology / Deep Encounters in Hybrid Place(s) : Schumacher College

Dr. Pavel Cenkl, Dr. Rachel Sweeney, Dr. Marie Metenier

Movement, Mind and Ecology is a Master’s program offered through Schumacher College, UK which connects communities across different geographic locations using an hybrid teaching framework that recognises the potential of transformative education across disciplines. This program aims through transdisciplinary embodied practice delivered across hybrid platforms, to connect global students across different ecological worlds through movement-based thinking and immersive encounters with the more-than-human. In the context of our global pandemic, we recognise the importance of promoting and connecting resilient learning communities mapping across bio-regions in response to distinct ecological challenges moving at different scales. This paper will reflect on how Schumacher College provides a holistic and transformative educational framework that encourages a unique intersection of embodied practice, environmental philosophy, and ecological thinking.

The Taste of Ignorance:

Exploring the Skill of Grasping Ideas with Ease and Unknowing
Liam Kavanagh and Valerie Duvauchelle

The learning skill of our time may be to grasp ideas but with a sense of ease and unknowing. Maintaining a felt sense of integrity between our need to act and our indestructible ignorance is a skill that may have more in common with sensing just how much spice to add to a dish than with “solving a problem”. We will lead metaphor driven and literal contemplations of knowing and ignorance.

Dialogic Dialogue A Space for Deep Connection
Mihai Banulescu

Dialogic dialogue is something that’s near and dear to me, and I’ve been practicing for a while. I would love to create a space for it and share my passion for it. Dialogical dialogue is a way of relating to one another, such that we allow ourselves to be changed in the light of the wisdom of the other. It is a dialogue that is always an exploration. Its philosophical roots stem from an understanding that the other is not really other, but participates in a shared reality of which we ourselves are a part. “The thou is a source of self-understanding that I cannot assimilate from my own perspective alone…. Our participation is always partial, and reality is more than just the sum of its parts.” (From A New monasticism by Rory McEntee)

Building Learning Cultures in Organizations with the Gifts of Clowning

 (2.5 hours)

What if we could use the power of clowning to support organizations in their systems change processes?

Join us for some playful, experimentation on how we can embody the wisdom of the clown in our lives and our work, and have (even a little) more fun!

3:30 pm EST / 21:30 CET / 02:00 IST (26 feb)

Ecological Storytelling
Sophie Strand

 In an age of ecological crisis, it is important that we decenter human narratives, by pouring ourselves into more-than-human morphologies and minds. What does a romance look like when it takes lichen as its inspiration? How can pitcher plants teach us to create ecosystems rather than monologuing hero’s journeys? How can we look at underworld initiations not as a human archetype but as a deep time story of fungi teaching plants how to develop roots? What do hermit crabs have to teach us about rejecting linearity and narrative propulsion? What does it mean to look at your wounding – physical, spiritual, emotional – not as an imperative towards self-healing, but a compass directing you towards the wounding of another species or landscape?

To Sleep Comfortably in Common:

Working through and with Difference
Michelle Teran & Marc Herbst

How can we create and maintain a generative space where not everybody agrees but comfort is still nourished?
Can we recognise difference and disagreement as abundance? What is the feeling of the individual in the differentiated collective? Over the next hour,
we will retell the experience of a 24-hour long workshop, including an overnight stay in a water basin in Berlin. This workshop stems from our experiences with conflict and the potential of working through and with difference. Our proposition is based around the understanding that to sleep alongside each other is a conscious project of collective organisation

From Word to the World: Exploring the Impact of Literacy on our Consciousness 

(1.5 hours)
Jinan KB 

Literates learn the WORD, where as illiterates learn the WORLD. We, literates have been shaped by the written word and that is how we became rational, disembodied, linear, fragmented and compartmentalized. Children are born to make sense of the world autonomously and modernity totally destroys this and equip us for cognitive labor. Learning about and from children is the only way out of the traps of modernity. But what prevents us from understanding children?

Ancestral Futurism

Daniela Brasil & Peninah Lesorgo

Ancestral Futurism operates in the ambivalence of nsynchronicity, between the realm of the sacred and speculative fabulation.

Which cultures do we come from, which cultures do we live in, which cultures do we co-create together? This session is an invitation to co-create voicing exercises, collective rituals that explores self-awareness and the ways we can express it artistically – towards expanded forms and temporalities of being and belonging.
