#22 – Praxis: Combining Action and Reflection – 50 things that help me heal
Praxis is putting theory into action, but for Freire it’s really about how (the elements) you put it into action, and that is what blew my mind!
I have found my healing, and a lot of it in politically charged works. This being one of them. Deeply healing and mind/heart/womb transforming. I am so grateful for his work!
I learned this concept from Paulo Freire’s “Pedagogy of the Oppressed.”
“Paulo Freire defines praxis in Pedagogy of the Oppressed as “reflection and action upon the world in order to transform it.” Through praxis, oppressed people can acquire a critical awareness of their own condition, and, with their allies, struggle for liberation.”
