Annette R. Lieberman Psychoanalyst, visual artist

Every artist has a story. A selfie is a moment of this story. The aim of this course is to give the selfie context and continuity-a home. We need a home to become mindful of our artist narrative, the story we tell ourselves about ourselves. Meditation is a way to create this inner home. This course is designed to work with the challenges of establishing a routine. In-class assignments will help you to establish a three-step meditation practice for your daily life. Using insights and techniques of Jungian theory, we will explore how your personal, family and cultural history shapes your artistic narrative and how this history supports or sabotages your meditation. Your self-portrait, in the medium of your choice, can then emerge as an externalization of this internal process.
