Some of Miguel’s Teaching Manifesto: ⠀ ⠀ "THIS IS WHY I TEACH CLASS:⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT IS A PRACTICE OF GENEROSITY⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE I LIKE TO CREATE A SPACE OF LEARNING AND CHALLENGE (CAN I SAY IT THAT WAY?)⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN TRANSFORMATION⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT IS HUMBLING⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT IS INTERESTING, NICE, RARE AND NERVE-RACKING TO BE IN A ROOM OF OTHERS PRACTICING SOMETHING TOGETHER⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT ALLOWS ME TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE AS BEAUTIFUL AND CAPABLE⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT STILL MAKES ME NERVOUS, WHICH MEANS I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN, WHICH MEANS I’M ALIVE⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE I AM DREAMING OF YOU NOW AS I PLAN IT, SO IT’S ALREADY BEGUN⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE AFTERWARDS I USUALLY HAVE A GOOD DAY"⠀ ——————————————————————————— ⠀ Engage in the practice of MIGUEL GUTIERREZ (NEW YORK) in our upcoming INTERRARIUM WORKSHOP.
