Spiritual Midwifery, By Ina May Gaskin, Book Publishing Company, 1976, 480 pages, paperback, ISBN: 1570671044

Spiritual Midwifery, now in its fourth printing, is a must read for students of midwifery but it is also an influential history of the counter culture. Ina May Gaskin and her husband Stephen Gaskin are founding members of The Farm in Summertown, TN, one of the longest running communes in the United States. The Farm was founded in 1971, Ina May published Spiritual Midwifery, in 1975 to document of the beginning of the Farm and the development of a successful out of hospital birth center, one of the first in the US. The book describes how the Farm was settled and how soon after there was a need for safe and secure medical care for pregnant and birthing women. The Farm Midwives learned how to be midwives out of necessity. An understanding local doctor aided them along with their education. The Midwives have gone on to deliver thousands of babies and are still practicing today.

The majority of the book is a collection of birth stories from the women of the Farm. The fourth edition has added birth stories from the Old Amish Families near the Farm whom some of the Midwives worked with, and birth stories from people who came to the Farm just to give birth. The book also includes a practical section for midwifery students with how-to skills infused with the Farm philosophy of home birth.

Ina May’s writing makes this book special, particularly in the way she frames the material. Although she never set out to be a midwife, she pays close attention to the way words affect how women perceive not only labor, but also their bodies in general. In the book, she weaves a powerful history of a group of people creating their own place in the world, calmly and peacefully, and how communication through specific language and touch plays a vital part in the success of their endeavors. There are also amazing photos of women giving birth.

The Library of Radiant Optimism for Let's Re-Make the World began with a mutual fascination for books from the late 1960s and early 1970s that shared the aesthetic and ethics of self-publication and self-education. These how-to books document cultural practices from the founding and maintence of communal living spaces and growing your own organic garden, to early sustainable design initiatives and home-birthing. The people and projects represented in the books selected for inclusion in the Library paved the way for today's environmental movement and sustainable design culture. The counterculture of this time took seriously the task of building the world they wanted to see.

The Book of the Month Club is an opportunity for us to share some newly selected titles with you. Each month during 2010, we will be scanning and uploading a new book to our website. Books that are hard to find, or particularly capture the spirit of the Library, will be selected to share with you during the Book of the Month Club project.

We begin welcoming Library patrons on January 15, 2010.

The Book of the Month Club is realized in collaboration with basekamp.
BASEKAMP team: 18:56:39
btw, stephen wright is co-host since he's co-organizing Plausible Artworlds with us in 2010 ]smiley
Brett Bloom: 18:56:59
oh yeah, thanks stephen

Charas, The Improbable Dome Builders, By Syeus Mottel, Drake Publishers, Inc., 1973, 191 pages, hardback, ISBN: 0-87749-490-8

“This book is dedicated to everything that is.” This simple dedication begins Charas, the Improbable Dome Builders. The book is a document of a Lower East Side community and their struggle to build a geodesic dome, beginning in the early 1960s with struggling New York City street life and systemic racism. Several men who would become CHARAS members led or were involved in gangs and moved in and out of prison while watching friends and loved ones succumb to drugs and violence. Carlos “Chino” Garcia and Angelo Gonzalez, Jr. two friends from the Lower East Side and involved in gang life from an early age, start the CHARAS story.

Angelo, after serving a long jail sentence and Chino, after spending a year in Puerto Rico at the request of the NYPD, meet up again in their old neighborhood with the idea to do something for their community. The two men were inspired by Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society plan which sought to eliminate poverty and racial injustice in America. Talking at a party they joked that they would start the “Real Great Society” in their neighborhood. The joking led to long discussions drawing in friends and neighbors in an apartment space on East 6th Street. Finally, the group was able to obtain the entire building as a meeting and organizing place to launch the Real Great Society in earnest. Much of what the Real Great Society project was about was developing community autonomy through self-directed economic and education projects. The project managed to do a lot for the neighborhood forming several businesses and setting up several storefront schools for teaching reading and basic math in East Harlem and the Lower East Side.

This project brought national attention to the Lower East Side. Despite its initial successes the group continued to do research and work toward finding the answer to affordable housing. This led them to contact R. Buckminster Fuller, after Chino learned of his design work. Fuller came and spoke at the Real Great Society loft to a rapt audience. This meeting led to the formation of CHARAS, an acronym of the first names of the original six members of the group, committed to implementing Fuller’s ideas for housing in their community.

The original idea was to build a dome in upstate New York so that city dwellers could experience fresh air. Budgetary constraints forced the group to begin building on an abandoned lot in the city. The group worked closely with Fuller’s assistant Michael Ben Eli, a PhD student in London at the time who often traveled with Fuller. In a strange collapsing of scale, Ben Eli commuted from London to the Lower East Side to teach the CHARAS members and friends about the applied geometry of dome building. Several CHARAS members had not graduated from high school and had a skeptical attitude to teacher student relationships. According to the book, there was a long period for CHARAS members and Ben Eli as the learned to communicate with each other. The commitment to the idea finally led to the building of a dome.

Marriage, childbirth, death, and the need to work to support families form the backdrop of the CHARAS story to build a dome house. The process as described in the book is long and arduous and the dome house does not clearly produce lasting change in the community. Rather the process initiated by the former gang members of creating alternatives to poverty and the violence of street life through collective work is the most salient aspect of the book. The book includes an introduction by Fuller and plans for dome building in appendix. Domes were a touchstone for liberation through design, and captured the imagination of many people; this is one of the more interesting stories of their impact on radical culture.
Jonathan Wagener: 18:57:11
mattadams: 18:58:30
been reading about / watching tons of buckminster fuller this week. nice!
Bonnie: 18:58:42
cool matt
Bonnie: 18:58:48
you will love this download then
Aharon: 18:59:19
how is a book of a month become such a book..???
BASEKAMP team: 19:00:52
hi carolyn & henken
Aharon: 19:00:53
..but surely one of the creteria is how you chose/selct/curate these..?
Bonnie: 19:01:11
how do you mean Aharon?
Bonnie: 19:01:35
we select titles that we are interested in and fit the criteria of the Library
Bonnie: 19:02:24
And criteria for the Library are-books from the late 60s early 70s that are often "how-to" books.
Bonnie: 19:03:00
They are also often self published, but not always and they express some idea about building up another culture or way of doing things
Aharon: 19:03:02
@bonnie you have a range of books to be chosen as book of the month, surely, someone somehow chose it..?
Bonnie: 19:03:46
yes we have a range.  We have been wanting to add Charas to the Library itself for awhile
Bonnie: 19:04:09
so we saw this as a perfect opportunity to both add it to the Library and to put up a scan of the book as well
Bonnie: 19:04:35
does that help?
Aharon: 19:05:41
hummm.. did i hear that u chose a book from a range of them each month..?
Bonnie: 19:05:53
Aharon: 19:06:10
who makes that selection/choice?
Bonnie: 19:06:16
we do together
Aharon: 19:06:29
i c.. thanks! smiley
Bonnie: 19:06:43
cool  smiley
Jonathan Wagener: 19:07:02
Very interesting
BASEKAMP team: 19:07:16
hi cecilia
Jonathan Wagener: 19:07:22
What do u do about copyright?
Cecilia Guida: 19:08:08
copyright??? and you? let me think and know what you're talking about
Aharon: 19:08:09
another thing.. i wonder if this can be elaborated by ppl, i have not heard the term "counter culture" for a veeeeeeeeeeeery loooooooooong time.... Do u use this term because it was a rather used one at times these books were made..?
stephen wright: 19:08:30
I have a question. I'm of two minds about "how-to" books. Growing up in the 70s, my parents had all sorts of these books around: user's guides to this that and the other thing. Joy of Sex. Build your own log cabin. How to tie flies. How to catch salmon. The anarchists handbook... I always figured that those books came too late. Kind of like Hegel's owl, that flies only with the coming of dusk. I mean, the action was relevant before the book spelled it out for everyone, by which point the cutting edge had moved on. -----
BASEKAMP team: 19:08:55
So stephen has a question, then Michael has a question after that
Aharon: 19:09:18
i had 1 b4.. smiley
Bonnie: 19:09:33
That's is an interesting thought Stephen. I wonder if that's why we feel the need to draw attention to these titles for a new generation, because perhaps there is time to "how-to"
BASEKAMP team: 19:09:38
oh, yes - aharon first
BASEKAMP team: 19:09:42
then stephen
BASEKAMP team: 19:09:44
then michael
BASEKAMP team: 19:09:53
keeping a queue smiley
Jonathan Wagener: 19:10:16
Bonnie: 19:10:52
thanks basekamp team
BASEKAMP team: 19:11:17
then greg
Aharon: 19:11:43
ok.. i get that.. it is contextual.. smiley
Bonnie: 19:11:56
Aharon: 19:12:45
..and another one.. I wonder.. u just mentioned that u publish books as well as gathering/collecting in your library.. am just wondering if indeed this is a library or a "library"..
Bonnie: 19:14:21
you mean do we lend the titles out like a regular library?
Aharon: 19:15:10
in a sense that titles are produced by you(??) getting lended out/avaliable to download..
stephen wright: 19:15:36
the urban homesteading case is a good example of how recalling usership 's potential is empowering
BASEKAMP team: 19:16:39
the next question in queue was from Michael
Bonnie: 19:16:45
So, it's two-fold. We collect the book titles and share them through reviews online and the PDFs (Book of the Month.) But also, we self-publish our own titles-reviews of the books, or documents of projects that we have done
BASEKAMP team: 19:17:56
B&B you guys could take pics and make a pdf out of thost if it's too fragine to scan
Bonnie: 19:18:09
that's a good idea
Aharon: 19:18:16
i c.. so in that case am wondering why you call yourselves a library? it seems like this is not a description but more of a metaphor in the "as if" sense of a metaphor..
BASEKAMP team: 19:20:57
Guys, was that the first time you've visited that island as part of Continental Drift?
BASEKAMP team: 19:21:14
that was a quick Q i guess --
BASEKAMP team: 19:21:26
Greg is in queue for the next question

I'm curious who your audience is or if you have a target audienceand if you market your projects if at all. Maybe it was already answered earlier-
BASEKAMP team: 19:26:37
So Henken is next in queue unless there was another one we missed?
Bonnie: 19:26:45
BASEKAMP team: 19:27:02

Bonnie: 19:27:44
Bonnie: 19:28:34
stephen wright: 19:29:10
I totally agree with your point about re-evalutating the 60s, taking back their work from its dismissal, and repurposing the hard work that was done.

But don't you need to expand -- geographically -- what you mean by the 60s.

hey henken
Bonnie: 19:31:35
@stephen you mean will we include books that are from other regions and the counter cultural activity that happened there?
Aharon: 19:32:03
hummm... in terms of paw.. would you say that your artistic practice is curative..?  with an emphasis on curation of the "counter culture" lit within a library metaphor..???
Henken Bean: 19:32:21
Hey scrap!
Bonnie: 19:34:00
I think @aharon should be the next in the cue yes?

Hi Alan
BASEKAMP team: 19:34:14
adding you to the call now
Aharon: 19:34:17
thanks! @bonnie
stephen wright: 19:34:43
While you answer the other questions, let me contextualize mine: I live in France, and May '68 in this country is a secularly sacred moment of contestation; it changed everything (and opened the door to gentrification). But not only that, and here as in the States, the radical and caustic edge of that movement needs to be reposessed. But what about Mexico? Argentina? Turkey? India? The global spirit to do things differently and to do them oneself was very powerful. So I think you might want to consider that in choosing your titles of the month.
Henken Bean: 19:35:01
Yes thank you!
BASEKAMP team: 19:36:01
Alan btw, there werre lots of hellos to you after adding to the text chat & before you got on audio  smiley

not fully researched-- but I work in the International Center of Photography Library and there is a radical self-reliance spirit that seems to come out in Eastern European solidarity movements of late 80's/90's
Aharon: 19:38:09

Bonnie: 19:38:39
BASEKAMP team: 19:38:53
hey alan - you got in the call!
stephen wright: 19:39:54
the problem is that south american counter culture was crushed and exterminated by american imperialism
mattadams: 19:39:54
pura vida!
Aharon: 19:40:51
hummm.. to follow on the question regarding your project as a paw.. you mentioned that you use stuff from your project in your daily lives, then added that in art contexts as well.. In a sense you did there a seperation between "life" and "art".. I wonder, in that case, what are the contexts you define as "art"???
stephen wright: 19:41:01
great! thanks
Bonnie: 19:41:29
you are welcome

any brooklyn affiliates? we run some of our own inititives as "noetic lab school for noosphere" but not reaching a growing population and would rather have discussions for "creatively/collaboratively envisioning new futures" than  just high-brow Art discussions (such as bhqfu). thanks BASEKAMP and RADIANT OPTIMISTS!!
