Kasàlaction

The word was inspired by the motto “From poetry to action” in the logo, which underlines the invitation not only to practice contemporary kasàlà, but also to exercise a double action:

  • individually : to make oneself a better person ;
  • collectively: to contribute to making the world more fraternal, more human.
In these General Regulations, Kasàlaction is the short form for “Kasàlaction: association of practitioners of kasàlà”.

To poetise life means to sharpen one’s senses and awareness to perceive it in its splendour, to marvel at and experience the joy that is at the heart of life, despite the challenges of various kinds.
Poetising life is an approach, or rather a posture, which consists in discovering the flavour of life, in participating in its natural movement, a spiral movement, initiated at conception by the meeting of an ovum and a spermatozoon, cells carrying complex heritages and continuing their development by incessant enrichment on various levels, according to laws, perhaps algorithms, which go beyond us.

To poetise life is to perceive and present it to our fellow human beings in its mysterious dimension and to celebrate it in its different manifestations with a sense of gratitude.
Finally, to poetise life is to become aware of our power: the power to change, to grow and to give meaning to things, starting with life itself.

But we should note that life is often harsh, and that human beings do not necessarily have the skills to make society or the earth a pleasant and welcoming place for all and even for themselves. The double violence – against the other and against oneself – is constantly and everywhere being perceived. For example, the domination of human groups by others is a source of stereotypes that hinder dialogue and cohabitation, just as the extent of distress in the various strata of society is a constant source of exclusion and suffering.

Recognising, on the one hand, the advantage for citizens to be in connection for individual and collective well-being and, on the other hand, contemporary kasàlà as a word of connection, an art of being alive and an art of defending human dignity based on the concept of ubuntu or the art of being human, we, the practitioners of kasàlà from diverse backgrounds, commit ourselves to contribute to the improvement of living together. We are driven by a sense of responsibility and humanity towards the society in which we live. We act by means of lively writing accessible to all, which leads to a word proclaimed in public and disseminated on social networks. Our speech is accompanied by the embodiment of it in our posture in the world.

This is what our action in the world consists of. This is what we mean by “moving from poetry to action” and what the term “Kasàlaction” summarises.
