Event description
Using InterPlay Forms to Explore & Practice a Counter-Intuitive Approach to Social Transformation; Making Love a Public Ethic.

About this event

The Revolutionary Love Compass

This September Wai-Chin and Karen will offer a course using InterPlay and Valarie’s Kaur’s Revolutionary Love Compass to explore & practice a counter-intuitive approach to transforming the World, making love a public ethic when rage as well as social and racial upheaval so often seem to surround us these days.

Valarie Kaur, the author of See No Stranger - A Memoir & Manifesto of Revolutionary Love “envisions a world where love is a public ethic and shared practice in our lives and politics. We generate stories, tools, and thoughtful leadership to equip people to practice the ethic of love in the fight for social justice.”

Valarie Kaur believes that “Love is a form of sweet labor: fierce, bloody, imperfect, and life giving—a choice we make over and over again. Love can be taught, modeled, and practiced. . . . “Revolutionary love” is the choice to enter into labor for ourselves, for others, and for our opponents, in order to transform the world around us.” (Kaur, 2020, p. 310)

This practice-play group will explore the ten practices of the “Revolutionary Love Compass.” We meet once a month on the 2nd Mondays of the month for 2 hr 15min-session. Our hope is to engage in one practice a month to labor in love for ourselves, for others, and for our opponents in order to transform the world.

There will be the option of joining a buddy support system during the month and "home practices" where you can choose to engage in that month's emphasis. The immersion of that practice that month will change our neural pathways, rewire our brains and discover that we can begin to live into a new way of thinking.

Financial support for this project has been provided by the Racial Equity and Transformation (RET) Grant through InterPlay.
