Masks: the face of the unconscious
Guest Speaker: Andrea Nersesian
Join us in this Friday lecture, about the masks we and others project and how by utilizing therapeutic arts practices we may explore and understand the many different masks that we wear. In the up coming workshop (following the lecture) we will take the time to identify what aspects of ourselves that we keep hidden and parts of us that are emerging.
This is an exploration into a new way of being ourselves in various expressions. Mask making is a powerful way to begin to understand our preferred ways of being. Together we will gently explore this terrain with curiosity.
“The ego confuses itself with the façade personality (which is of course in reality only that part of the personality that is tailored to fit the collective), and forgets that it possesses aspects which run counter to the persona. ~ Carl Jung
