Episode 37

Art of change: Turning stagnation into acceleration /37

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


Bec and Michele wade into some philosophical questions: What makes us who we are? Would we be different people given different experiences? Can our own self-certainty shut down the potential for new aspects of ourselves, and our art, to emerge? This conversation is thick with analogies: seeds, gardens, stagnant ponds and flowing rivers… even some babies in bath water!

Ultimately, it’s about loosening our grip on any fixed ways of thinking and doing because these can tend to hang us up and limit our options. And beyond that, it’s about learning to not just manage changes in ourselves and our art, but to actually swim in the flow of change and use it as an accelerator.
