Straddling the Fence: exploring the boundary between knowing and not knowing, wanting to know and defenses against coming to know.
It can be painful to stay in the knowing and it takes energy to stay in the not knowing. This panel will explore the experience of translating from one state of knowing/not knowing to another from the perspective of the three panelists: Social Dreaming, moving between different ways of becoming including transgender, and Family Systems work. Join us to explore how we might look at the world together through creating a broader sensemaking field as we pay attention to the other on the edge of our knowing. This panel is an invitation to think together through using new frames that provoke new questions.
