I AM THAT – Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj – Tales of timeless teachings from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, the contemplation of action, reaction and response. Thinking about how we perceive, communicate and connect. Why do we classify in binaries? How does the body aid us? What energies are encapsulated through action.
The Secret Life of Fungi, Discoveries from a Hidden World – Aliya Whiteley – A great conversation about language used for describing fungi or mushrooms, how they lie between animals and plants due to their properties, making me think more about projection and how they spread through decay and growth.
ON CONNECTION – Kae Tempest – A series of stories and poems that entrap current communications and theories. The use of gratitude and freedom are talked about. I really connected with the concept of forgiveness for the self. The meaning of how you do that currently when connections with the world are limited or put through a barrier such as the internet.
