Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Are you always climbing mountains? Always putting yourself in stressful situations that require all of your skill, all of your determination, all of your energy just to get over the top and back down to level ground? And when you get back to level ground, do you quickly start the anxiety-provoking climb over again? Are you a perfectionist in some area of your life? Your parenting, your relationships, your art, where no matter how hard you try, no matter how much progress you make, it doesn’t feel enough? Welcome to “The Art of Enough”, a podcast and art series that can help you understand the causes of feeling not enough and provide some guidance on how psychology, neuroscience and creative process can help you transcend this and other problematic emotion. The Art of Enough is a personal, transformational art-making project. The process is much like my previous works where I used a multi-disciplinary, psychology driven creative process to become aware of, and then transcend, limiting patterns of emotions and behavior. Creative process is core of my work; it’s a place where I seek freedom and spontaneity through acting, movement, voice exercises, therapeutic photography, video techniques, writing explorations and mindfulness practices.

In the first podcast we explored how my adult feelings of not being enough started in childhood. I explained that when I was a young child my father had a series of bipolar episodes that forced him to leave the house.

In this podcast. we are going to explore...
