Abstract: I enter the conversation and the celebration for the centenary of Paulo Freire from a feminist perspective that enhances a critical reading of political Zionism and the State of Israel as a settler colonial project in Palestine. In this paper I seek to transcend Zionist essentialist nationalist paradigms by shedding light on what it means to deconstruct the Master consciousness while “feeling at home” (Ahmed, 2006). I would like to suggest that enabling the “disorientation of encountering the world differently” (ibid.) is a learning process that involves engaging in a profound transformation of consciousness.
