About this event

Giving thanks for our beloved bell hooks's life and for everything she taught us - how she pushed us and we pushed her. We are forever grateful <3

There's no question that the transition of bell hooks at the end of 2021 broke our hearts and through reverence of her life, it opened us up to dive deeper into the wisdom that she called us to embody about love.

"The Love + Liberation Book Club series: a year with bell hooks' books on love" was inspired by all the Black folks, mainly Black women and Black nonbinary folks that I saw reading her books going into 2022 - including me. And those books were almost always either "all about love", "communion" or "salvation".

I desired a brave space, like the ones I used to host in my living room, to talk about what we were reading together - process it, question it, have epiphanies, disagree with it, cry and laugh with it, and allow ourselves to be transformed by it.

We need this now...I need this now.

And since COVID is still raging, we have to do this virtually until I can invite y'all over lol

So join me and some amazing authors, poets, lovers and friends as we journey through "communion", "salvation" and "all about love".

*** This is a space for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Desi, and Middle Eastern folks. (a.k.a. BIPOC)

WILDSEED SOCIETY

The WildSeed Society is a political, spiritual and economic community that is inviting people to build a 21st century Underground Railroad together. We are building a series of refuges from the current exploitative world to new worlds where we all get to belong and be cared for - by focusing on Spiritual Liberation, Social Transformation and Economic Revolution. We seek to experiment and prototype our way into a new way of life - in community and in right relationship with the land.

The WildSeed Society is stewarded by a collective of movement veterans, spiritual teachers, and organizational development nerds. Many of the members of the collective were involved in the Movement for Black Lives in various ways before starting WildSeed. It is inspired by the vision of futurist Octavia Butler of gifted misfits finding community together before transforming the world.
