E41| How can we make relationships that build life? w/ Nora Bateson
“We are vitality, we just got really confused.” – Nora Bateson
It has never been more important to be part of authentic conversations. To make sense of what to care about, together. Voicecraft is extending invitations to participate in meaningful group dialogues with artful practitioners of philosophical transformation.
“The compost knows more about how to be in a world of vitalising relationships than I do. Because I have been encultured into a lot of processes that have blinded me. And that have been served by exploitation that was beyond where I could see conveniently. And so I have this idea of essentialness that is connected to brokenness.”
The question becomes, how can we make relationships that build life?
This conversation is a journey toward asking that question.
