Talking to Yourself

BY RAY FENWICK
@ VOL 16 ON DEC 05, 2013

Artist-of-all-sorts Ray Fenwick speaks to a crowd and to you (if you listen) about talking to one's self. He points out the fact that our voice is a huge part of our identity, but in many cases we don't acknowledge that it is the embodiment of our thoughts while still remaining a function of our body. Because our voice is at the crossroads of our psychological and physiological being, it can be surreal and disconcerting to practice, but Ray encourages us all to see what comes out!

BY KRISTOPHER BANNER
@ VOL 26 ON SEP 29, 2016

“Does somebody with 10 out of 10 confidence always succeed? Never fail? Never procrastinate? Always trust themselves? I don’t believe that.”

Kristopher Banner was home sick watching day time TV when he had an epiphany about how people perceive confidence. He shares what he learned by looking to others—and inside himself—for opportunities to pick away at self-doubt.
