The goal of this discussion is to explain and depathologize the causes and symptoms of trauma, both acute trauma (e.g., car accident, sexual assault) and developmental/relational trauma (e.g., childhood abandonment, emotional neglect).

Trauma is epidemic and widely misunderstood, which leads to judgment of self and others, lapses in empathy, and the perpetuation of erroneous beliefs and problematic behavioral and relational patterns that could otherwise be resolved if we understood more about the nature of trauma and its effects on the body.

We will also introduce some treatment options and routes for self-care that can help resolve the ...

A salon series focused on near term opportunities for influencing or setting precedents. This month's inaugural salon will use the thought experiment of a lunar power station to introduce and explore key challenges and questions that will be faced.

Consider a solar power station on the moon near a peak of eternal light. Who or what entity, if any, gives permission? How would it be owned, how it would it be financed, what mechanisms or rights would be available to users? Who would get to use it, and what currencies would be used to pay for those services, etc ...

Could saving the world be a game? Oh yeah it can. But you have to do it right.

There is a new era of environmental change emerging. The planet is being covered in sensors that are acting like digital eyes and ears, giving us unprecedented data about the earth like never before.

Like a “Fitbit for the planet” we can use this data to unveil environmental impacts that we never had access to before, and use it in new and innovative ways to tap into the motivational core of humans so we can really start to drive measurable change.

This is a support circle for people practicing or wishing to practice RA. Living out anarchist principles in a world full of rules, coercion and privatization is tough, and and relationship anarchists face different sets of struggles and issues.
