The True Self is the core or essence of the individual person. Some call it the soul. The True Self is the spark of energy that is unique to the person, the individuality and originality of the person. It contains the qualities that allow the person to carry out his or her mission in life: mission meaning what he or she brings to share with the community to create a better world. There is an innocent, childlike quality to the True Self, and yet all wisdom is contained with it. It is the person before she or he was pressured by others to be someone she or he isn't. The True Self often appears as a child or young person. The True Self exhibit takes place in the season that is energetically aligned with this Archetype,the Winter Solstice.

The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, fabric art and installation. Life Force Arts Foundation Executive Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about this theme. From explorations of the human body and the nature of a person's heart, from whimsical symbols of the artist's childhood to depictions of intense personal awakening to one's core identity, this show expands our understanding of this powerful Archetype."

Life Force Wheel:The True Self is the sixth in a series of shows called Life Force Wheel. This year-long, six show series of art exhibits and multiarts presentations explores the deep Archetypes of human existence. The Life Force Wheel is a spiritual teaching based in ancient, universal wisdom, received through inspiration by modern shamanic practitioner Joan Forest Mage. The Wheel is based in a deep awareness of our unity with all beings, and seeks to foster healthy relationships between the individual, human society, nature and the spirit realm. The six show series began on December 8, 2013 with the Teacher Archetype and concludes January 13, 2015 with the True Self Archetype. All shows will be held at Life Force Arts Center, 1609 W. Belmont, Chicago.
