【壞時代讀好書2021——境隨心轉】系列

心隨境轉,香港環境的變壞,叫我們的心死去了半截。

境也隨心轉,心靈的轉化,視點的不同,也可改觀香港。

現實(Reality) 遠比表像的深層。要在虛荒的表象中好好生活,我們學習閱讀更深層的真實——在死中看見生。

新一季度的「壞時代讀好書」,我們精選一連三本翻轉視角的祕笈,預備每月下旬的星期三,跟你分享。

二月有Joanna Macy 在絕望中的active hope,三月有心理學家Brock Bastian 談與喜樂雙生的痛苦,四月談engaged spirituality,身心靈也可落地。一連三次由小曹博士分享,在Facebook直播。


【願景即希望:如何在世界崩壞時仍保存希望火苗?】線上講座

書目:Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy (Novato, California: New World Library, 2012).

日期:2月24日(星期三)
時間:晚上8時至10時
費用:自由定價(所收到的金錢,將會用作資助年輕人及經濟有困難者報讀課程。)

直播前希望了解參加者期望,所以也邀請大家填一填表:

Joanna Macy是一位佛教學者,長年參與保護生態和反核的社會運動,重建人與自然互相依存的關係。她親身見證過身邊一個又一個志同道合的伙伴,在漫長又不見曙光的社運路途上倒下。

從70年代開始,她結合基進佛教、深層生態學和系統思考,為行動者整合出一套理論與實踐並重的方法——The Work That Reconnects,幫助行動者再次連繫「為世之痛」,並從痛苦中提取力量,回復行動意志。

她的方法和活動可以分為四個步驟:
1. 從感恩出發(Coming from Gratitude);
2. 感謝我們的「為世之痛」(Honoring our Pain for the World);
3. 用新眼睛看世界(Seeing with New Eyes);
4. 繼續前行(Going Forth)。

這次說書會將以Active Hope為依據,闡述The Work that Reconnects的理論基礎,以及四個重拾力量的步驟。

處身亂世,連看新聞也考驗情緒管理的能力。未來一年,真不知怎熬過。

每天早上一起來,你不知已搖搖欲墮的世界又那塊大石崩塌。眼不想見、耳不想聞、但情緒不想麻木。想找方法面對,飲食又限聚,社媒已不安全,宗教太離地,身心靈療癒又像靈性的逃避,避得開憤怒,但逃不過愧疚。

我們不知可以作什麼,只感到日子難熬,卻有著大自然的節奏,在個人療癒及社會轉化間,大家可否找一個安全的空間,一起圍爐,拿着你的柴火來燒,好好哀悼?

所以,創傷同學會的山地與表演藝術治療師朋友頌恩,想營造承載的群體空間,逢24節氣在線上來個圍爐,點起火,在亂世中學習不同的ritual,在黑暗不見𥌓光之時,彼此看見。

是日大寒,我們不知會有什麼大事發生。但冬去春來,我們在2月3日,立春相見。

活動日期及時間:24節氣當天(請見圖中日子)8pm-10pm

參加方法:暫時將會是線上活動,我們會在活動前一兩天把線上連結傳給你,請先報名參加:

▌報名表:https://bit.ly/woodtofire

收費:我們不想以消費的態度看待圍爐,但想能量要互換,你可報讀我們的課程,邀請朋友參加,捐款給我們支持「一白展覽」,支持年輕人報讀我們的課程等。(留意我們的消息)

為何在 24 節氣?
中國傳統的24節氣,根據太陽在黃道的位置,而定下四時的節令,農民也以此定下耕作的節奏。刻意選取24節氣圍聚,提醒我們與萬民共生,本是大自然的一部分,受其滋養。24節氣中的大節令,我們會線上圍聚;其餘的則以小組相聚,疫情若許可,我們可面對面相見。留意我們的宣傳啦。

圍爐做什麼?
每次圍爐圈我們參照不同信仰的儀式,理論系統的練習,包括 Joanna Macy 提出的Spiral of the Great Turning,Ignatius of loyola 的默觀練習 ,Jem Bendell 提出的 deep adaptation,結合不同活動,鍛練如何在亂世中修行而不離地,在burnout 和絶望之際找到新視野。

這段日子,我們很迷失。
世界更瘋狂,黑夜更漫長,白色更恐怖,
舊創猶在,還未復元,新傷又來,
這些日子要到幾時?
為何信仰無法承托?

過去一年的經驗,猶如九級大地震後遍地裂痕,我們既有的世界觀被重繫,身體像被撕裂,支持走下去的信念似在倒塌。

要在破裂的世界,找到出路,也許我們不是要修補,而是勇敢細看每一道裂痕打開了什麼世界,容讓自己陷入迷失,發現出路,finding our ways by becoming lost。

誠邀迷惘的你,成為自我研究員,在即將來臨的春天,以大自然為材料,以表達藝術治療的方法,一起在裂縫中尋找出路。研究成果或心得,將收集成文,於線上發表,有助社群集體抗逆力研究。

假如你如此相信,這計劃是為你而設的,期待你參與:
–  參與社會運動期間經歷信仰衝擊,開始問一些沒有太多人願意聽的問題
–  願意相信你的個人經驗、想法、感受、聲音,也相信集體智慧
–  面對未知,樂意跟同路人分享你沒有答案的問題
–  尋求新問題、新挑戰,回應你想帶來的社會轉化
–  願意坦誠面對自己在參與研究過程中勾起的情緒、傷痛或回憶

假如你有以下信念,這計劃暫不適合你: 
– 如果你已經很清楚自己在社會轉化的角色,有鮮明的方法與目標
– 如果你的立場無法接受其他不同意見
– 如果你相信批判或理性思考是唯一找到答案的方法
– 如果你需要一對一的輔導治療,這個計劃應未能滿足你

From June 2019 till now, Hongkongers have been surrounded by loads of information of the Movement and undergone many incidents. We may be overwhelmed, difficult to digest and hard to share feelings with others. Friends at overseas could only receive scenes of conflicts and might not understand core values and spirits of the Movement.

Therefore, We hope to find appropriate means of recording historical contexts and mottos of the Movement. Activists' memories and emotions could be transformed into an inborn language of drawing. Drawings can reflect history of 2019 and will be kept decently.

What participants need to prepare is one sentence. Words could be from friends' casual conversation, news or online platforms. For you and the Movement, those contents are crucial. They might once evoke your nerves, remind your feelings and stories, as well as bring you new meanings. Participants will be given a large blank paper and record words and memories by recurring drawing.

We have been organizing the workshop for 8 times in July and August 2020. Experiences were all amazing so that we decide to keep running the event. The scale of it is 2-4 people ( which depends on the current policy of social gathering ban). The Arts instructor will lead the session and guide you to transform your own memories and emotions.

Targets: All who owns strong feelings towards 2019 Hong Kong's anti-extradition movement. Positions of the Movement and art skills are not restrictions. If you got some profound feelings and wish to leave them as history, please join us.
 
Date:
5/9 (SAT, 2 – 5 pm)
6/9 (SUN, 2 – 5 pm)
12/9 (SAT, 2 – 5 pm)
19/9 (SAT, 2 – 5 pm)
26/9 (SAT, 2 – 5 pm)
 
Venue: Tai Po ( address details will send to successful applicants )
 
Activity: Reserve 3-hour for yourself, record a sentence which rock your soul and finish the drawing with the guidance of arts instructors. The creative work is not showing your art skills. The most important thing is to reflect feelings of this year.
 
Remarks:
*Each session only opens for 2-4 people. Please avoid no-shows. If you need to be absent because of urgent issues, please inform us *at least 2 working days before* or ask friends to take your place.
*Names will not be marked on the work as this is the art-piece created by all Hongkongers.
*Contact details of participants will be deleted after the end of the workshops.
*Please dress up with clothing which allows to get dirt.
*Because of COVID-19, we restrict the scale of the workshop. If you still worry the health issue, please think twice before submitting the application.

The workshop includes 4 sessions: introduction of Narrative Practice, skills of listening and questioning, methodology of recording and rearranging people's stories. Specially designed for journalists, writers and those wanna record history.

Our body is like a narrative of us: she records our experience in her own ways, and speaks to us with low but vigorous voices, with a vague but diligent tone.

In the past year, we may have many tough experiences suppressed in our bodies but hard to be shared with others. Can such mental wounds created in our bodies be cured without telling others? In this connection, we launched a trial Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) course in March this year. TRE uses a somatic approach to deal with trauma: by triggering limb vibrations through exercises, it effectively releases the pressure hidden in our bodies.

Summer has returned and the pressure continues to increase with the temperature. We decided to introduce a TRE online course to Hong Kong people. The TRE online course is held by Michelle and Ching, TRE international certified instructors from Singapore, as well as Lilian, a Hong Kong person living in Singapore. The TRE online course comprises six lessons, covering both theory and practice in equal emphasis. The online course will be conducted in the form of small groups so that each participant can experience the TRE and learn how to help people around to release their pressure one by one.

 

Stories of people are the prototype of our history. In the past year, the stories in everyday livings of each Hong Kong person (no matter where you were or have been) are the basic elements weaving our history, no matter how trivial of such stories. Such stories should not be covered by the arguments in our society.

We have launched a scheme inviting 100 Hong Kong people to share with his/her story at this moment to review the occasions happened in past year.

The scheme is undergoing and we discover tremendous efforts are needed. We therefore seek for your help in the following two ways:

I. Being our storyteller:
1. Complete the questionnaire namely “100 pieces of story from 100 Hong Kong people in this specific year”( Click here )

2. Tell us your story with an item representing your story for two hours (we will record your story in a way as you wish)

3. You may also introduce one of your friends to participate the scheme

4. Our artist Humchuk will tailor-make a zine of your story and give you as a gift.

II. Being our supporter:
1. We need at least HKD100,000 to support the necessary manpower, resources and exhibition spaces for the scheme. Any remaining funding will be used to organize extra exhibitions in Hong Kong or overseas.

2. We also expected to organize art and storytelling workshops during the exhibition period to saturate the experience of Hong Kong people in past year. In addition, we will make a video to deeply record the stories from 10 selected storytellers. Your support on the materials, tutors, filming, editing and post-production expenses is highly appreciated.

3. If you would like to be a supporter of us (e.g. donation, offering exhibition spaces, becoming a volunteer of us), or if you would like to understand more about the scheme, you are welcomed to fill in the form and return to us .( Click here )

If you present the donation receipt, irrespective of the donation amount, you can visit the exhibition for free and we will offer you a small souvenir.

Let's record our own history. Please join us.

“I didn’t come out last time.”
“Yes, I don’t have the gut to go to the frontline.”
“If I ran faster, I would not have caused my companion being caught by the police.”
“In fact, I become a citizen journalist because I don’t have the gut to stand at the frontline and can’t afford the consequence of being caught by the police.”
“I was safe because I returned to home earlier. I cried immediately when I saw my companion was being beaten up in the livestream.”

Sometimes, we want to live as usual. We spend our best efforts to close our hearts by isolating the complaints and suppressing the confusions in our hearts, with the aim to avoid any disturbance caused by the fluctuation of any negative emotion in our hearts.

However, sometimes, we are ashamed of our incompetence. We feel sad since we fail to meet our own expectations and we criticize ourselves harshly so as to urge ourselves to reform.

Such struggles in our hearts make us exhausted…how can we untie these knots in our hearts?

On 21 June 2020 (Sunday), Ah Chi and Ruby, the tutors of T2T, and Mika Maniwa will talk with Hong Kong people about how to “get alone with a stern me”, about listening the self-criticism and blaming in our hearts and about understanding how to guide our actions.

We will explore the voice of the self-criticism in our hearts: what experience from our life does it come from and what pain in our hearts does it bear; how can it push you to do more and better while it is bitter, harsh and contemptuous?

// Bio of Mika Maniwa //
Mika Maniwa has been teaching NVC and leading practice groups for over twelve years in Vancouver, Canada. She shares the relational language of NVC with information about our nervous systems to help people cultivate more self-compassion, resilience and warm community. She has been exploring how NVC can be used to share power and address issues of social location, privilege and internalized oppression in order to create more equitable systems in organizations.

Speakers: Mika Maniwa, Chi and Ruby (T2T Tutors)
Time: 21 June (Sunday) 10:30am – 12:30pm
How to attend: Online
Language: Bilingual (English, Cantonese)
Size: 70 people
Fee: HKD800 / HKD500 / HKD250 / Optional (pay according to your wishes, all fees collected will be used to support T2T’s work)

Summer returns with an oppressive atmosphere where a storm is about to burst. 2020 is even more suffocating than 2019.

How to live freely in a place where freedom has been deprived? How to stay calm and determined in the seemingly endless night?

Is the yellow economic circle merely a close market among a small group of people or a uniting force? What enlightenment can be gained?

When it grows darker and darker and we do not seem to find the dawn, and the social trauma seems to be worsened instead of being transformed, what can we do?

However, considering interested parties might not be able to enroll due to financial difficulties, secondary school students and undergraduates are exempted from charges.
