Healing the Collective Body:
Organic Intelligence & Social Action
July 18, 7 – 9:30 pm
Location: Canticle Farm, Oakland
Cost: Gift Economy (donation-based)
Faculty: Sean Feit Oakes, PhD
Coordinator: Anthony “T” Maes, berkeleyHEART@organicintelligence.org
Accessibility: The space we’ll be in is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. Canticle Farm and Organic Intelligence both apologize to our communities for that obstacle. They are developing an accessible space that we’ll be excited to see soon.
Parking info from Canticle: “The event will take place in 1972 36th Avenue, directly behind 1978. Parking is very difficult on 36th Avenue; somewhat better on Harrington Avenue. If you park on Harrington, you can walk down the path next to 1969 and it will bring you into our garden. Walk toward the dark green house and go upstairs. Fruitvale BART is a 10 to 15 minute walk (or 5 minute Lyft/Uber ride) to our community. Please do not park in or block our driveways.”
Activists and others working for systemic change are intimate with trauma and oppression, throughout the social systems they care about, and within their own bodies, families, and communities. Organic Intelligence (OI), a complex systems-based healing process, offers an elegant model for social change based on the principle of working with rather than against biological systems. It is an inner process, a counseling modality, and a model for resilience in large-scale social systems.
Join Sean Feit Oakes, PhD for an evening intro to OI as a support for social action and anti-oppression work. The evening is offered freely based on the principles of Gift Economy. Donations will be invited for the teacher and host community, Canticle Farm.
