As many of you know, I'm launching a series of online programs around the idea that self-mastery creates a path to personal and collective decolonization.
I am fascinated by the notion of daily practice. I want to cultivate and encourage daily habits that support creative, productive, adventurous, and subversive work. Work that changes the worker, and work that changes the world.
I'm in deep with this stuff, producing content with a fervor I've never experienced in myself, and seeing that reflected in the huge love and solid professional response of my students and peers.
Alrighty then. Let's do this "cultural emergence" thing. Have you heard that term? Looby MacNamara taught it to me.
I've been talking about chrysalis and transformation and metamorphosis, and that connects directly to what a bunch of other thinkers/writers/teachers in the permaculture-sustainability-ecofeminism community are doing/writing/building.
Something is happening to us. We ARE emerging. But more than that, our wings are unfolding and, as individuals shining our lights on each other, together we are beginning to fly.
Today I met another thinker, Elisabeth Howland, who is also writing about emotional permaculture, designing the inner landscape, deepening our connection with nature, as a radical act.
I could continue naming names, shining lights....there are 40 of us putting on the world's first all-women online permaculture design course.
And now, there are 1200 people enrolled in my Emotional Permaculture course. Because this stuff is opening people up!
What am I trying to say?
Thank you for being here! Thank you for trying, for tearing yourself open, for struggling through the fear and the dirt and the clay and the paint. Thank you for making art, telling stories, dancing and fucking up!
Maybe the world is gonna end, who knows?
Maybe we're all gonna die (we are).
But this little subculture we're building, this interconnected community of flawed and fragile humans who are still trying to open it up, be vulnerable, and learn how to love each other? We're awesome. And I'm grateful.
