This essay introduces a methodological praxis for those seeking a radically ecological approach to excavate relational narratives, experiences, and subjectivities that have been miniaturized through history and habituated practices. Through the progressive use of a MAP methodology (Movement, Art, and Poiesis) that seeks to question the body through movement, artistic expression, and invitation of poiesis, practitioners are encouraged to seek a form of catharsis that promises not release, but social change. The resulting cartographies are verbal representations for approaching an ecological level of understanding of broken, disrupted, and otherwise hegemonically damaged histories of relations.
