Rememorying Our Connectivity Toward Embodied Spiritual Citizenship (Day 1)

How can we discuss spiritual citizenship for emancipation when the concept of citizen itself is rooted in the modern binary logic of citizens vs. non-citizens within the geo-political boundary of nation-state? How does spiritual citizenship work with our everyday material-embodied interactions with neo/colonial, historical, and social structures and conditions of life such as modernity, capitalism, settler colonialism, racism, patriarchy, heteronormativity, nativist nationalism, etc.? These questions challenge the divide/separation between citizens vs. non-citizens as well as materiality and spirituality. By working with these questions, I introduce transformative spirituality as plural ways of knowing and being (onto-epistemology) that are historically and geopolitically contextualized rather than universal. When our spirituality is grounded in a people, place, and history of communities, we can learn how transformative spirituality has always been a dynamic and inherent part of various communities’ work toward peace and justice. By rememorying our connectivity and honoring these practices and lessons shared, we then participate in embodied spiritual citizenship.
