Some interesting insight on love

I’m really critical of what patriachal cultures have done to love. And in some ways, this thinker is exploring in a similar sense.

Some of the most important things in life are complicated in fact, but that’s because we don’t learn to deal with the complex. Complex doesn’t necessarily mean complicated, really. And love, well, that can be an amazing beautifully complex experience far from war, torture, suffering… Perhaps learning to love is one of the most important things we can learn in life! ūüôā ‚̧

More Listening work: About the book she mentions on metaphors (Metaphors We Live By), there’s a very interesting episode on the Talking People Podcast, around the patriarchal metaphor that equals discussing things to war.

And some reading: here’s an interesting article on constructive things that can be done To Stay in Love

Last, reading and listening: To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This!

Today’s Talk

Thanks for coming!

I thought nobody was going to come, and that would have been such a sad thing to do to¬† school projects like this, really. Also, we should really pay attention to constructive analysis that allow us to improve our living together, right? And it was our Grand Opening, you know, as people who have a groundbreaking feminist Coeducaci√≥n project with followers in so many different places ( ‚̧ ), not only the beginning of our celebration of the 25th anniversary. Our second celebration will be on the 25th of April, same time, same place, but this time with Eul√†lia Lled√≥ Cunill, one of the most knowledgable people in this country when it comes to language and the r-evoLution feminism is bringing about on this planet! Love and language, as our Head of Studies pointed out in her intro. Two BIG topics where every single person can contribute to positive change. Empowering subjects, because they allow us to feel we can achieve change, as we exist and use our very lives for that, not weapons or destructive ideas, attitudes, words, actions.

So a big relief to find that almost 100 people attended. The head counted you all! And we were surprised to see so many adult men coming, too (not because they were accompanying a woman they loved, I mean! ūüėÄ ) ‚̧

Any thoughts to share? ‚̧
