We Deserve to Dream and to Heal
Community organizer and facilitator Aja Taylor claims that right now might be the apocalypse that we’ve been waiting for. She talks about the Greek roots of the word literally meaning to uncover.
So much has been uncovered in the last year, in the last four years on a collective level. This uncovering has meant so much for our communities, as we turn and face the realities and impacts of rising white nationalism, a confrontation with the realities of racialized capitalism being predicated on anti blackness and specifically police violence, and of course the unprecedented grief, rage, and uncertainty inside of the global coronavirus pandemic.
It makes sense that amidst this uncovering, for so many of us, our capacity to feel, know, and move into possibility are diminished. What would it be like to dream our way through the darkness this winter? Abolitionist author Jackie Wang talks about dreams being the place that racialized capitalism can’t touch.
Let’s do more of that dreaming. It is through our bodies that this becomes possible. Our bodies are and can be places of imagination, of resource, of deep aliveness, and of connection.
