A Training in Lateral Liberation

With Kim Haxton

June 12 - 17, 2022

We are living in a time of high contrast. Collectively we sit on the verge of creation and destruction. Challenges to planetary well-being have never been more evident and creating opportunities for positive, actionable change have never been more vital.

Indigenous knowledge and other wisdom cultures are critical to transforming our culture from a consumer/material human-centered identity to one that is governed by natural law of respect, responsibility and reciprocity with the Earth. Explore Indigenous concepts of land, place, and decolonial practices (art, economics and gender) combined with embodied knowledge of Indigenous peoples. How we centre this knowledge can rupture the politics of what is considered valid “knowing”; getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.

We are in a place of coming to terms with the earthly reality of right now; climate change, uncertainty, social unrest, a pandemic. Develop skills and cultivate the courage necessary to hold the paradox of it. Aerate the soil to help get unstuck and we will create space so that we’re more able to access the critical and creative thinking needed to imagine how we might do things differently. Together we will learn to laterally liberate consciousness.
