Last week, I led a small practicum from my cozy (read: tiny) apartment in Brooklyn, NY. In attendance were a few of my closest friends; we dined on pasta, broccoli, and garlic bread before diving into even meatier fare – a discussion on a Caring Economy. The most lovely part of the evening was hearing my friends express their gratitude for having a forum to speak freely without fear of judgement, and to ask questions about subject matter that can be surprisingly difficult to articulate. One woman commented that she has never felt educated enough to speak up on many of the incongruencies that have long troubled her, and that the Caring Economy presentation felt intuitive and revelatory at the same time. We so enjoyed the experience that we have decided to form a monthly discussion group where we can come together to learn, question, and plan meaningful action. I am excited to see what the future holds for our small (but mighty) group!
