What happens when IRL gigs are not what they once were? Demanding audience, abolition, and decolonization through Temporary Autonomous Zones.
A pandemic is a perfect time to unlearn perfectionism. We have so many chances to practice saying no. We have ongoing motivation to work on directing our anger and action toward institutions and people in power rather than our neighbors and loved ones.
I knew we all wanted justice, ease and wellbeing, and that our anger was a manifestation of our love for each other. But I also watched as my own fight or flight response kicked in in group dynamics, as I felt habitually roped into defensive positions that felt out of my control. I couldn’t reconcile this big gap between intention and action, so I knew I needed to withdraw not out of avoidance but out of commitment to my own healing. In retreating to understand my own depletion, I discovered somatic practice.
