Authority and Power
TEACHER: Erin Oke
THEME: Authority and Power
MEDITATION: Inner Strength
INTERACTIVE PRACTICE: Power Games
Power mesmerizes, corrupts, entices, repels. It brings out our inner golems, grasping for precious, my precious … In this meditation, we’ll start by connecting to our individual sources of inner strength and dignity. How is this different for each of us? Then for the interactive practice, we’ll borrow a few techniques from Brazilian activist and writer Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed to explore power dynamics through theatrical game playing.
