our intention

우리의

Our
Intention

Our
intention was one of transmutation

of
the space as stone

into
porous space

that
allows for gaps

that
allows for the entrance of water

We
followed the water

this
water bubbling up from the gaps in the stone

We
allowed the water to enter in, at first unseen

and
then to slowly build

into
a visible trickle

and
then into a great force of running water

We
let it guide us

through
green forest and pine

to
a calm still pool

We
allowed it to gather and collect

We
let it rise like steam into the air

Thus
we followed the spectrum of water in our ritual

Our
intention

was
to allow for trans-thinking

To
queer our space,

both
in the natural world

as
well as in the institutional one.

Our
intention was to challenge the structures

that
create and sustain violence.

To
subvert the architecture of institutions

that
add weight and gravity to those structures,

though
we acknowledge our contribution to those edifices.

And
on a personal level

we
hope we allow forgiveness for our role in that structure

To
find calm

While
on a larger level we hope that our offering focuses us

on
the life long struggle

to
break borders,

to
transgress binary structures,

to
subvert top-down approaches.

We
are always approaching

and
never reaching

our
height of gnosis.

Here
we open a portal

Here
we find ourselves lying dry on the sand

Here
we find ourselves reaching for the light

Insignificant
and significance creatures

Both
and all and either and together and both

all
at the same time

What
can we dream here ?

What
can we dream here?

What?
What? What do we want to say?

What
can we dream here?

Repository for Magical Intentions

We have created this digital repository for your magical intentions: https://hyenaz.titanpad.com/1

You can also send them via twitter: @hyenazhyenaz ‪#‎probabilitypraxis‬

Or simply bring them with you hand written.

PROBABILITY PRAXIS

Probability praxis is not about enacting any singular act of magic in a
moment, but part of envisioned long term commitment to use a continuum
of small, eminently reachable acts of magic to shift consciousness and
move energy in the world.

It is a decentralised act of magic, not
relying solely on the magical intentions of the magician but drawing on
the hopes, desires and insights of the magical circle gathered at each
performance.

We ask you therefore to meditate for 10 minutes on the following questions, and record your answers below:

[1] What would you change about the world?
[2] What would you change about yourself?
[3] What makes you feel angry?
[4] what inspires passion inside you?
