Gestare Womb Retreat January 6, 2011

We gathered in Vancouver, BC, Canada for mini-co-creative retreat on Jan. 6, 2011 where Barbara, Nané and Medwyn entered the Gestare wombspace for a day of resonating threads and strings as we deepen into the rich tapestry of art, inquiry, scholarship and activism that is emerging in our matrixial co-encounters. We worked on the co-writing that is moving us towards expression of our work in the language and context of Ettinger's feminist co-relational theorizing, and recorded a group sounding capturing the resonance of our current gestating. The arrangement done by Barbara of the sounding became part of our NAPAR conference art and sound meditation.

  This sounding fetish icon was spontaneously co-created by the Gestare women during the retreat.
