From adrienne maree brown, as kavannah for the drinking of wine:

"Pleasure activism is about learning what it means to be satisfiable, to generate, from within and from between us, and abundance from which we can all have enough.

Part of the reason so few of us have a healthy relationship with pleasure is because a small minority of our species horads the excess of resources, creating a false scarcity and then trying to sell us joy, sell us back to ourselves...And so many of us have been trained into the delusion that we must accumulate excess, even at the cost of vast inequality, in order to view our lives as complete or successful.

A central aspect of pleasure activism is tapping into the natural abundance that exists within and between us, and between our species and the planet. Pleasure is not one of the spoils of capitalism. It is what our bodies, our human systems, are structured for; it is the aliveness and awakening, the gratitude and humility, the joy and celebration of being miraculous."
