Salon duc Tape – Global Reciprocity – June 12th, 2020
Moving towards Global Reciprocity and lessons for this moment in time
At the salon on June 12th, FCCAN Coordinator Shirley Man-Kin Coenen will give a brief presentation about a course titled “Global Reciprocity” that she participated in last year at the Ayni Institute. In a short amount of time, we’ll touch on the history of our earth from an indigenous, Andean perspective and consider a few vital lessons Shirley gleaned from her teachers that apply to the current moment we find ourselves in.
Shirley (she/her) identifies as a multiracial, south Asian-American woman of color. In addition to her work with FCCAN, Shirley teaches yoga. She spends a lot of her time trying to meld together two separate worlds – the body work/spiritual realm and social movement organizing. She’s combining her skills and knowledge from ethnic studies, women and gender studies and community organizing with her deepest passions (meditation, buddhism and yoga) to try to create something that can be transformative, healing and (gasp) pleasurable for her community. Outside of this work, Shirley enjoys spooning with her dogs, biking around town, dancing, and reading books.
