People, Not Just Parts
Health Autonomy Convergence, 2023 (virtual)
workshop description: Many times therapeutic spaces refer to the 'parts' of self, as parts of one single whole person. This approach can reinforce the premise that a 'singular' self experience is the only one possible, and more so, the only one desired. This workshop will dive into the lived aspects of multiplicity/plurality, from a Mad lens. Madness acts as a lens to deconstruct the diagnosis of our lived experience and ground it in naturally occurring non-singular experiences of our world around us. Weaving in approaches from a traditional presentation mixed with a writing workshop, this workshop will connect multiplicity across plant, fungal, and animal kingdoms through introspection and creative prompts, challenging curiosity to expand in health and healing spaces.
