ID

BY NATANIA LEONGSON
@ VOL 35 ON MAR 22, 2018

Natania Leongson speaks about identity – the idea of the self, self-perception, and how people form an image of themselves that sometimes is what limits them instead of what encourages them to learn and push forward.  

She would like to give us the inspiration to shift their mindset about identity from it being a permanent or predetermined thing, to something more malleable and fluid. She challenges us to break free from the limitations of identity and embrace the plethora of possibilities that life is bursting with.

Join Jay-Ram in a moment of letting go of the illusion of fear so that we may discover our reality, and ultimately ourselves.
