Leila Rosen, Aesthetic Realism associate, writes about this upcoming Public Seminar:
Largely, people do not feel that a man and a woman have the same confusions about themselves—the same self-questionings—the same desire to be just and the same feeling of shame because one isn’t. This thrilling seminar not only can have us see that men and women’s questions are alike—it will explain one of the largest questions every person has.
We all—man and woman—want to feel we’re strong. We’d also like to be tender, considerate, kind. Most often, though, both men and women have felt our strength and tenderness cannot go together. Aesthetic Realism shows they can go together—in fact, have to if we’re going to like ourselves. That’s what consultants Carrie Wilson, Ernest DeFilippis, and Meryl Nietsch-Cooperman will explain. And they’ll show, with examples from life, music, literature, that our own question about strength and tenderness is an aesthetic question, answered in art.
There will be examples too of what men and women are learning in Aesthetic Realism consultations—the most exciting and needed education in the world!
