Uproot and Reseed: Decolonizing Ethical Humanism
An Experiential, Experimental Workshop
Saturday, November 9, 2019: 10 am – 5 pm
Ethical Humanism developed from traditions of reason, philosophical inquiry, continuous learning. Until now, our community’s guiding philosophy is largely rooted in thought influenced by the Enlightenment, with an emphasis on reason and the individual. This has also largely excluded intuitive and experiential ways of knowing and learning. And as a dominant worldview, that tradition has often supported patriarchy, racism, and imperialism.
What if it is time to renew, reorient, decolonize? What does an Ethical Humanism look like with a wider canon, broader emphasis, an intentional effort to center the experience of those often silenced — even by us? How could this better center our commitment to human worth and human connection? How do we, with attention to serious theoretical work and experiential ways of knowing, develop practices that are inclusive, egalitarian, and healing? Come join us as we begin this work together.
