The W*U Hall will be tabling at the 5th Annual East Bay Anarchist Book & Conversation Event, Sat Dec 17, 10am at the Humanist Hall in Oakland. Almost 30 different tablers and lots of conversations including this one that piqued my interest, bleak as it presents:

At 12:30 PM:
The Spiritual Crisis of Anarchy

At some point, many Anarchists in North America will eventually cobble together enough experiences to gain an actual sense of self. At that point their lives will cease to be a desperate scramble to create and defend an insecure social identity, and the deeper question of how to relate to a complex universe will emerge. Their place in a reactionary teenage subculture will be revoked or refused, but sadly, most will turn to some mixture of politics, religious or secular monotheism, and humanism to seek answers. What would it mean to cultivate an amoral, anti-humanist spiritual practice that places one in direct relationship with a living world and offers the possibility of an actual Anarchist adulthood?

OUT of the BROOM CLOSET

The W*U Hall is excited to announce a new reading/discussion/practice group. It is based at the anarchist info-shop, SubRosa, on Ohlone Territory in Santa Cruz, CA. This is an in-person group, but we are making the links to the readings, discussion questions and exercises available on this page of the W*U Hall site for anyone who is interested in connecting to this work from afar, either on their own on or in a group.

The intention of this group is to meet regularly with community, share ideas, learn and practice together at the intersection of magick, spirit and politics in order to build capacity, intimacy and a framework for other branches of collaboration to be created and supported.

We’d love to hear about other groups that pop-up… let us know if you have an interest in starting one. We have offered some resources below that readings but would also be happy to chat if that’s helpful.
