JOURNALS FROM SEVEN YEARS OF LIVING ART: 1984-1991
After each year of the Chakra Experiences, I wrote a year-end report of ideas/thoughts/feelings/events. For this film, I sung and spoke all of the saved journals, having burned tons of them in a fit of privacy about 15 years ago. My need is to share, as much as I can, my findings and also document my understanding of the endurance penances that I had given to myself. Basically I learned after 7 years, that I was re-writing Catholicism for myself; that is, I made rules that I broke and because I needed to NOT FEEL GUILTY, in general, I forgave myself and didn't feel a shred of guilt for breaking my own rules. I ended up beginning to drain guilt from my guts and bones. After those 7 years I performed it again, going down the Chakras. I would say that = successful Art. No?
