The YA movie The School for Good and Evil (based on books by Soman Chainani) gets something very right: when "good" assumes a moralistic, holier-than-thou stance, seeking to keep people in line and scapegoating/punishing those who fall out of (what has been prescribed institutionally as) the line, there is probably a version of "evil" masterminding the subtle inner corruption of "good"—its degeneration into conformism to ideology rather than a context-sensitive, empathetic responsiveness.
This workshop is offered as part of the Asian American Women Artists Association's End-of-Year Fundraising Auction. All proceeds will benefit AAWAA's programs and membership.
An in-person group writing experience to connect with trees as the sacred elders of our planet, and open our imagination to their wisdom and inspiration. Monica Mody will guide participants in asking the trees what they would like to share, seeing the images that open up, and listening to tree-language and tree-rhythm. Participants will be invited to listen to their own modes of language while communing with trees.
We meet at the Queen Wilhemina Tulip Garden at 12pm, Saturday, December 10, 2022.
Bring writing materials, and optionally, any offerings you would like to make to tree spirits (such as water, milk, cornmeal, coins, alcohol), and a blanket to sit on.
For up to 16 participants. Duration: 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Registration closes November 20, 2022.
