Rehana Tejpar: Art and Social Change Jam

Rehana Tejpar: Art and Social Change JamAfter two of years of being part of the organization and facilitation team for the Toronto Jam, and nine years of being told “you should go to a Jam”, I finally accepted the generous offer and was a participant at the Art and Social Change Jam. Why did I wait so long? To be honest, I struggled with believing that I deserved the investment of time and resources for a reflective retreat. Even up to the day before I left, I was feeling guilty, thinking “What am I doing taking a retreat? I should be working!”

I’m so glad I pushed through my old scarcity thinking and followed my gut which both softly and assertively said: “Go!”

Because in the loving embrace of community, I received oceans of affirmation supporting me to be the artist I am, in all the roles I play in the world.
