Social Change Sunday: Courtship, Kinship, and Consent w/ Christos Galanis

  • Earthdance 252 Prospect Street Plainfield, MA, 01070 United States (map)

To what—or whom—might we extend the social? In this 2.5hr workshop, we will inhabit and invoke our responsive bodies to guide us into dialogue with the other-than-human world, extending the social realm beyond an exclusively human-centered framework. We will utilize somatic awareness and conscious listening to practice principles of kinship, courtship, consent and reverence for those who are other-than-human. Together we will ask permission, offer gifts, intuit protocols and nurture intimacy between ourselves and the land that holds us. Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook for writing and be prepared to stay for the entire 2.5hr timeframe. We will primarily work outdoors and participants are encouraged to wear clothes suitable for the weather that greets us that day.
