A Textbook for the Ecocene by Sarita Dougherty is a how-to guide for connecting to self, community and planet. What we pay attention to grows. To get us out of the people-dominant era called the Anthropocene, we are focusing on the ways resilience is growing and how indigenous communities have always been teaching stewardship. As we abandon institutions, economies and worldviews from the Anthropocene, we are creating our own textbooks and curricula that respond to the needs of our bodies, minds, habitats and spirits.

Here's a little more about the context and content for Textbook for the Ecocene, Sarita Dougherty's DIY PhD Dissertation:
The Ecocene is an emergent geologic era where all humyns live in reciprocity with their ecosystems again.
The Textbook for the Ecocene shares place-based medicine to support any humyn in generating an Ecocene starting exactly where they are at.
Reader-participants are invited to move any way they feel called through the 7 Chapters with practical exercises to try at home, Earth-centered theory & spirituality, and testimonios from community members who practice and create planetary liberation in their everyday lives: Johanna Iraheta, Bruje Fuego, Raquel Lemus, Patty Denisse, Jasmine Nyende, Queen Hollins and Olivia Chumacero.
The stories and words of these co-contributors are bright guides for what reciprocal living and planetary liberation look like today, right where we are starting. All co-contributors share in the proceeds of our cooperative publication.
This book was created as Sarita Dougherty's DIY PhD Dissertation, documenting 6 years of Earth and community-centered theory and praxis.
The Chapters, glossary and artwork inside hope to inspire more people to reclaim their educations, degrees and planetary destinies through creative and generative practices. We are activating the Ecocene right now, one step at a time.
