Feeding the Self—interactive multi-sensory shabbat experience | Nov. 2019
So often, we eat rushing, standing up, while talking to friends. The intimate relationship between ourselves and our food is diminished. What happens to our taste buds when our sight is blocked? What does it take to bring pleasure to the act of feeding ourselves? Participants will be asked to wear a blindfold and observe silence while they are served a 4-course meal.
Feeding Another—interactive multi-sensory shabbat experience | Dec. 2019
What is our relationship to giving and receiving nourishment? How do we negotiate these themes in relationship? Participants will be asked to bring a partner to dinner, during which they will only be able to feed one another - never themselves - and communicate non-verbally.
“White | Woman | Shame | Blame | Game”: workshop | June 2019
(Co-facilitated with Annie-Rose London) at Feminism All Night
Moving past guilt in service of becoming stronger anti-racist humyns. This workshop explores the ways shame and guilt - particularly as internalized by female-identified and assigned people - intersect with white fragility and vigilance and can make us, as white women, less resilient and capable as anti-racists.
How does our guilt and shame and lack of self-assurance make us fragile and terrified of "messing up" with race, and thus afraid to speak out or over-react when being called out/in? How does it make us hyper vigilant of other white people, severing ties with them rather than leveraging our access and privilege to build bridges and educate? This workshop focuses on working out the experiences of white-identified women and AFAB folks of all genders.
