Unsettling the Settler. How does capitalism feel?

(Embodied practice)
5-6 PM Live on YouTube and Facebook

Embodied practice to locate and unsettle structures of capitalism and settler colonialism that are stuck inside us.

Guided by the practices of generative somatics, deep listening, and mindfulness, this session will take us through an embodied practice in order to understand how capitalism feels. We will be led through a scan of our bodies tracing through our tensions, memories, sensations, feelings, and affects to get to the underbelly of where all of these embodied ways of being, thinking, and doing come from. The loose goal is to locate where and how structures of capitalism and settler colonialism are stuck inside of us, and how we might unsettle those structures, individually and collectively in order to transform these structures systemically. Following the practice, there will be a talk back and discussion on what came up inside of all of us – what did we unsettle and where can we go together?

Meredith Degyansky is thinking about, practicing, looking for, and organizing other worlds and ways of being that pull us away from the exploitative and extractive practices of settler colonialism and capitalist modernity. Currently she is living in Western Massachusetts in the US.

On October 8th at 17:15 CET, you can join the embodied practice on our Economia Festival YouTube channel and Baltan Laboratories Facebook Page, where the videos will remain accessible afterwards.

In addition to the embodied practice, there is the opportunity to join the conversation in a live Q&A with Meredith. If you want to join this Q&A, please register via info@baltanlaboratories.org. The zoom room will be open from 16:45 on, at 17:00 we will start with an introduction.
