About The Program

How can we decenter human narratives, by pouring ourselves into more-than-human minds? How can we look at our bodies as being portals into a greater kinship with our ecosystems? What does a romance look like when it takes lichen as its inspiration? How can we follow fungi into the dirt for information on underworld ordeals and collective initiation? What does it mean to look at your wounding – physical, spiritual, emotional – not as an imperative towards self-healing, but a compass directing you towards the wounding of another species or landscape? Together we will compost old stories and mythologies with science, poetry, and mutual listening: to each other and to the feral world of insects, plants, and mushrooms. Using somatic exercises and meditations, we will explore ways in which to root our bodies, our myths, and our sense-making into the generosity of our situated landscapes.
