Written through story, prose, poetry, analysis and offering case-studies, methodologies, practices and generative questions the book expresses and contributes to the (co) creation of a new language of liberation. This is an enfleshed language in which there is a return of the world to the word, of the body to the text, and of the heart/womb to thought. This is a language of the political in which a new political subjectivity that is multiple, deeply relational and becoming is formed.
The book offers a window onto the complexities and depths of the wounding enacted by patriarchal capitalist coloniality through these stories but it also offers, through sharing and conceptualising prefigurative and dialogical co-creation of critique, the gift of practices of healing as emancipation, and the conditions of possibility for our collective liberation.
In her visionary, transformational book, Sara C. Motta risks the personal, birthing new-yet-ancient (ancestral) modes of knowing, being, and becoming that profoundly challenge conventional western epistemology, ontology, and metaphysics. Using poetry, prose, prayers, conversations, guided visualizations, ceremonies, rituals, case studies, and more, she offers a revolutionary, heretical alternative to modernity’s spirit phobia. Her embodied wor(l)ds demonstrate the generative power of multiplicity, interconnectivity, and the erotic. Liminal Subjects invites readers to fully embrace our enfleshed, trauma-inflected, bruised-yet-becoming-whole selves; listen with raw openness to our exiled inner and outer selves; access our bodies’ sacred wisdom; speak new stories into existence; and enact radical modes of decolonial love.
