Now that uncertainty is our new planetary normal, what is it like to relate to it with ever greater intimacy?
Uncertainment Lounge is not a relativistic refuge from truth-seeking or certainty, nor a panacea, or a therapy, but rather a practice space for embodied participatory knowing. Practicing together in/as the polarity of knowing and not-knowing builds capacity to turn toward the unknowable, the uncontrollable, and the mysterious as they emerge within and between us in real time.
Uncertainment Lounge has no agenda other than sensing and participating with/as dimensions of uncertainty. As with any collective inquiry, we don’t know where we’re heading, and we don’t rely on maps. We explore our real-time state experiences, befriending the generative tensions that arise, without collapsing into consensus or cliché. We gently relax the one who knows everything there is to know about uncertainty in order to meet ourselves anew.
