Rappahannock weekender, Michael Shea will discuss:
Art, Consciousness, Ethics, and Social Media
Art is a vehicle of self-expression. Mental health utilizes art as a tool to understand symbols, dreams, express feelings, and increase awareness. Technology and the expansion of art in digital platforms and social media has re-surfaced a need to discuss boundaries, consciousness, and ethics of self-expression with civility. Michael’s remarks will offer thoughts for consideration and discussion based on his experience as an Integrative Psychotherapist, a performing artist, and as a “seeker” of knowledge and wisdom.
