Dina Bataineh is passionate about learning. After completing a graduate degree in sustainable development, she became disenchanted with modernity and institutions and questioned whether she had gained anything beyond the tools and means to better compete within a historically exploitative and unjust system. Dina came together with friend and former colleague Reef Fakhouri to begin a homegrown learning medium called Taghmees Social Kitchen. Combining the ingredients of people, food, and fabric, they engage in community learning, honouring people’s lived experiences. They use stories as a source of meaning creation and shared learning in the hope of collectively walking more steadily towards wellness and wisdom. Their process is one of doing, reflecting, and doing again (hopefully better) while asking questions regarding our consuming in mind and body: how does that reflect on our spirit as means of healing relations in ourselves, to each other, and within our larger interconnected body.
