The True Self is the core or essence of the individual person. Some call it the soul. The True Self is the spark of energy that is unique to the person, the individuality and originality of the person. It contains the qualities that allow the person to carry out his or her mission in life: mission meaning what he or she brings to share with the community to create a better world. There is an innocent, childlike quality to the True Self, and yet all wisdom is contained with it. It is the person before she or he was pressured by others to be someone she or he isn't. The True Self often appears as a child or young person. The True Self exhibit takes place in the season that is energetically aligned with this Archetype,the Winter Solstice.
The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, fabric art and installation. Life Force Arts Foundation Executive Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about this theme. From explorations of the human body and the nature of a person's heart, from whimsical symbols of the artist's childhood to depictions of intense personal awakening to one's core identity, this show expands our understanding of this powerful Archetype."
