About this event
The dandelions are prophesizing.
This non-traditional workshop will encourage you to expand your awareness and language, focus on letting go of control and linear time, and move towards living in the present moment with presence, awareness, and gratitude, and to imagine new futures that don’t depend on replicating the energies of the systems we seek to dismantle or the patterns we seek to heal from. We will investigate the speculative potentialities of futures beyond capital and justice-oriented systems, imagine identity and being through the lens of assemblage and permeability, and explore new and porous ways of working towards individual and collective change.
In this generative and healing-focused workshop, we will be supported by writing prompts, guided meditations, intuition exercises, personal medicine work, divination, communing with plant and animal beings, Buddhist teachings, and a communal ceremony (that will be finished on your own at home).
Please bring writing tools and a small object that represents what you need to let go of, or a small stone, that will be buried in the ground after the workshop.
*One scholarship will be awarded to a QTPOC/BIPOC L.A.-residing individual who would like to join but does not have the means to do so. Please email us if interested at email@example.com
Workshop attendees are expected to participate in a respectful, constructive, and considerate manner. Beyond Baroque reserves the right to remove individuals from our workshops, virtual or otherwise, if they are not respecting the space, fellow participants, or facilitator.
