Presence: Striving to Find Your Authentic Sense of SelfArtists being able to collaborate with psychologists makes for a unique experience. I had the pleasure of coordinating such in 2001, for a performance piece entitled Presence. Inspired by self-development work of the previous decade, it was a melding of interest, studies, written reflections and art.

Authentic sense of self, or presence, has been a point of fascination, centered on the thought that we must strive to find who we most truly are and move toward a life that speaks to that.

Inherent in engaging around sense of self is the need to incorporate multifaceted elements that define us.
