Embodying Degrowth for a Healing Transformation
What’s this all about?
Our starting point is that the ideology of endless growth is central to capitalist modernity, and that it is making us sick. Many of us live in the “burnout society”, a society that alienates us from each other and from deeper connections with the planet and the cosmos. We have also unconsciously internalized this ideology of growth that tells us that “more is more”, “bigger is better”.
In this Key Conversation, we want to interrogate this, and we want to explore concrete tools for healing minds, bodies and communities. We believe that doing this work is essential for radical politics to truly flourish and be effective over time.
So far, degrowth has been mostly oriented towards “outer” transformations (e.g. towards changing production, reducing resource throughputs).
It is time to make room for “inner” transformations as well!
