Belonging to the Land: Resistance and resilience

In our interactive, reflective and embodied session, Mama D, Sui Searle and Samson Hart will discuss our relationships to land, belonging, spirituality, resilience and resistance within ourselves and our movements. We look towards understanding land as belonging, sovereignty, homeland, or identity beyond capitalism and we re-imagine co-liberation through land and spiritual practice. We will share our experiences in relation to specific questions, then open these up to wider discussion and reflection. Questions are: can displacement and severance from land be reimagined and healed through land connection? How do we centre what we value in our movements, lives and work in relation to colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy’s impact on our relationship to land? Can spiritual connection to the natural world act as antidote to disconnectedness?
