Let the Ancestors Speak

We want you to know more about who we are. We thought one way to do that is to open a window on to our creative practices of writing fiction, which leads into a conversation about channeling our ancestors. We believe we're in an imagination battle right now and that we're living in a world, and in power dynamics, someone else created. So, it's our responsibility to counter-imagine what we actually want and need to create futures that are viable for more and more of us. And some of the work of creating those futures is writing fiction.--Music by Tunde Olaniran and Blue Dot Sessionshttps://www.endoftheworldshow.org/ https://www.patreon.com/Endoftheworldshow--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/how-to-survive-the-end-of-the-world/message

Decolonize the Body

We are Earthseed. We are flesh—self aware, questing, problem-solving flesh. We are that aspect of Earthlife best able to shape God knowingly. We are Earthlife maturing, Earthlife preparing to fall away from the parent world. We are Earthlife preparing to take root in new ground, Earthlife fulfilling its purpose, its promise, its Destiny. - Octavia Butler, Earthseed versesOur bodies, right now at this moment are both colonizers on this planet and our bodies are also colonized spaces on this planet. In this episode we get into talking about why getting in a right relationship with our bodies is key to getting in right relationship with the planet.Music by Tunde Olaniran and Blue Dot Sessions-endoftheworldshow.org https://www.patreon.com/Endoftheworldshow@endoftheworldPC--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/how-to-survive-the-end-of-the-world/message
