  • Healing for Activists

        Activists have long struggled with burnout, unresolved conflict, violence, authorities, daily awareness of oppression and buried feelings. My intention with these workshops are to help people be more effective in all that they do and how they relate to the world by bringing awareness and focus to these issues on a deeper level. It’s an opportunity to make changes within your relationship to yourself, your loved ones, your community and society. These workshops are a co-creation between me, everyone who shows up and the space.

  • Marx's Capital, Vol. 3

    In 2012, a reading group on Marx’s Capital started at the Los Angeles Public School, and eventually finished vol. 1. Now we propose to take up vol. 3. Volume 3 contains Marx’s analysis of the relation of value and price and the formation of a general rate of profit, his formulation of the law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall, and his discussion of interest-bearing capital, among other topics. It is a classical reference point for a Marxist analysis of capitalist economic crises, and is of particular interest in the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008.

  • The Architectonics of Answerability

    Departing from Bakhtin's early essay "Art and Answerability" this class seeks to examine the meaning of answerability in the work of the Russian philosopher known for his philosophy of "dialogism". If -as noted elsewhere- the Bakhtinian self is never whole, since it can exist only dialogically, answerability seems to be an essential element in the relation of the self and the other.
