Particle Episode 22: George Quasha
Read the newsletter article here
We are humbled to be joined by George Quasha who immediately invites viewers and listeners to slow down and settle into their bodies and place and truly listen. Quasha is careful and conscious with his speech and semiotics believing in the power of language as a world-maker or world-breaker. In this regard, Quahsa speaks with "quantum awareness" understanding that, even down to the molecular level, interactions are the basis for our language and therefore our existence. Throughout this conversation he tells stories of his experiences working trans-disciplinarily as a poet, artist, musician and how those multiple places allow for open-ended understandings of the surrounding world. He discusses his own theories and revolutions rooted in his artistic and mindful practices. This is a beautiful episode to kick-start our Fall Particle Series.
