Mindcamp Choice Session Description
Creativity as a path to liberation
Mind U sessionRadical self expression is the practice of unapologetically expressing one’s identity, culture, experiences, personality, spirit, emotions and thoughts, not limited to a specific medium, person, field or artform. Radical self expression is also a process of deconstructing and unraveling the ‘self’, understanding the mind, body and spirit connection, as well as how ‘self’ is interlaced with ancestral, familial, social and cultural layers. This process interrogates, analyzes and examines ‘self’ through expression, as a way to curiously question our relationship to ourselves, people, places, things, the planet and the cosmos. Practicing radical self expression as a path to liberation explores the relationship between being alive and feeling alive.
