The work of the Werklund School of Education is learning. Research is an engaging way of learning what is not already yet known, or probing what is already known but in new ways. Within the Werklund School of Education, the research conducted by our professors and students is incredibly diverse.
(In Search of Fearlessness Research Institute, 2019-02-23) Fisher, R. M.
This FearTalk 4 (in a series) is Part 1, with a Part 2 to follow, where R. Michael Fisher hosts an emergent authentic dialogue with two women who have thought deeply about the divine feminine, slow activism and scholarship, as well as exploring their own fear, anxiety and the context of how women are particularly susceptible to the pathological patriarchy as part of everyday living. As artists and researchers they explore the role of art as medicine, the role of dreams, imagination, and intuitions of hauntings and many other topics that are part of an emancipatory process working with intuitive darkness as transformation. This FearTalk 4 is dedicated to Dr. Carl Leggo, UBC for his inspiring work over many years, and may his recovery from cancer proceed in healing ways for all involved.
