Lila Express Launch

Lila Express is about creatively reflecting on life. Lila is a Hindi word meaning “the play of life”. I am an artist and a psychologist. I have just begun documenting the stories of the everyday person and the artist, particularly their relationship with the transcendent: that sense most of us have experienced at some stage in our life when we are transported from our everyday consciousness into a deeper sense of connection with ourselves. Maslow, a psychologist, referred to this state as a “peak experience”, Jung, (a psychiatrist) referred to it as “the Self”, you and I may call it “fulfilment” or “wholeness” or many other things. I believe it is within each of us.
Lila Express will present my musings and those of the people I have the chance to connect with. As an artist with a large network of creatives and wonderful sensitive people around me, many of these musings will be visual or audio: film, fine art, photograph, interviews.
I’m looking forward to sharing this with you!
