COLLECTIVE
INACTION
PRACTICE
We began Inactivity practice in an online format during the lockdown, when we already got tired of being forced to adopt new conditions, of an abundance
of events, information and permanent uncertainty, and of an high disturbing
context. For three months we have met weekly. Regular practice allowed us to disconnect from all affairs at least once a week for an hour, to create a special space of silence and inaction. After the lockdown, we continued to add the collective experience in an offline format.

We understand Inaction as a phenomenon, a prerequisite for an action. Our interest is to make this practice collective in order to expand the experience: as in our variation of action, we can find a variation of our inaction.

Within this framework, Inaction can be expressed as a rejection of the usual course of things and overaction. At this moment we have the will and come closer to our real self, to our real needs. Through the Inaction practice, we observe how inaction lives in a body, what actions our body chooses to be inactive, and shared the bodily experience of doing nothing.
