Centering in our lineages
he | they
Who are the ones we learned from, who influenced, challenged and inspired us, who taught us our most precious skills, who shaped our values – and ultimately made us who we are today? Through embodied meditations, verbal sharings and little rituals we will create a space to honor who we are coming from: our human and nonhuman teachers, our ancestors, the people, places, animals, landscapes, entities,... who shaped us. Centering in these lineages can help us to embody more fully who we are today, and to carry these precious seeds into the future by sharing our own gifts with the world.
Jo is embodying many things in his life, and has learned from many sources: from poets, dancers and movement magicians, from blind pigs and old songs, from witches, butches, dykes and divas, from activists and post-activists, from snails and whales, stones and oceans, from the newly born and from the dying, from his queer siblings across time and space, from those who are smart with concepts and theories, from those who are smart with their bodies, hands and hearts. They have all found their way into the landscape of what he does, feels, senses, thinks, creates, shares and teaches today.
