“We have to ideate—imagine and conceive—together. We must imagine new worlds that transition ideologies and norms, so that no one sees Black people as murderers, or brown people as terrorists and aliens, but all of us as potential cultural and economic innovators. This is a time-travel exercise for the heart. This is collaborative ideation — what are the ideas that will liberate all of us?” -adrienne marie brown
We are in a time that calls on us to awaken our imagination. IMAGINATION Calendars explore dreams of interdependent community, creative family structures, cultural resiliency, liberated land, & collective healing. What does it look like to expand your idea of what is possible? This calendar can be a tool to support you on your path to awakening your imagination, with space to articulate a monthly intention & practice, and to capture daily observations.
why start with nissan?: The 1st of Nissan marks “the head of months,” or the new year of the months. It is also the anniversary of the founding of the Jewish people upon escaping slavery in Egypt, celebrating a moment in time of our liberation as a people. The calendar starts on the 1st of Nissan as a way to honor our continued struggles and the struggles of all oppressed peoples towards liberation.
a timely form of resistance & resilience: Each month is laid out vertically with the moon cycle, prioritizing the Hebrew calendar but also including the Gregorian calendar. Includes Jewish holidays, Omer counting, Linke Fligl work days, and space for setting monthly intentions (kavanah) and practices (keva).
“…aside from different years, one of the most striking differences between the Gregorian calendar and the Hebrew calendar is the conception of time itself. There is a theory that, since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans, Jews began locating the sacred in time rather than place. As Rabbi Heschel wrote, “the Sabbaths are our great cathedrals; and our Holy of Holies [Yom Kippur] is a shrine that neither the Romans nor the Germans were able to burn.” -Jonah Aline Daniel
deets & tachlis: Calendars are a sliding scale, $12-$36 each. Order by April 14th to receive in time for Passover. Purchase includes a calendar as well as an occasional song recording on Rosh Chodesh. 10% of all Linke Fligl sales and program donations go to Schagticoke First Nations.
