“Inside the word “emergency” is “emerge”; from an emergency, new things come forth. The old certainties are crumbling fast, but danger and possibility are sisters.” Rebecca Solnit
The ship is turning but the iceberg is still on the move.
In this critical social and creative discussion we will explore what the next phase of the #MeToo movement might look like and what else is at play.
As the paradigm shifts, what do we need to be asking ourselves as a collective and how do we show up differently – with resilience, unity and compassion? How do we continue to speak truth to patriarchy and misogyny and own our privilege? How do we heal and move forward together?
This is where we want to start our conversation and we invite all to join with our prominent and respected panel:
- Phil Barker is a journalist with over 25 years of experience within media and magazines. He unpacks the myth of the ‘Man Box’ and Australian masculinity in his recently published book ‘The Revolution of Man’
- Jutka Freiman is a prominent Hoffman therapist, Psychotherapist and Anthropologist, and graduate of the Bereavement Care Centre.
- Ven. Ayya Yeshe is a Buddhist teacher, activist and contemplative nun of 18 years. She is the founder and director of Bodhicitta Foundation.
- Moderated by Miriam Hechtman an Australian writer, journalist, poet, feminist, mother and world traveller, and founder of Poetica.
At YOKE we embrace this exciting and challenging era by digging deep into the world of creativity, where we believe our collective spirit can genuinely create real, positive change.
