Megwyn White
Megwyn is the curator and mastermind around the Embodiment Through Art Project, a
group space inside of Facebook that is focused on catalyzing creativity
and intimacy through artistic sharing. Megwyn has been dubbed by many as
a "digital shaman" that has a magical ability to bring people through
some of their darkest moments into the rapture and revelation of art. 
She has completely redefined the possibilities of collaboration and
sharing inside of the Facebook medium, and is also leading the movement
around what is being called “Digital Intimacy.” Whether it’s teaching
people how to express their voice in relation to their poetry or
writing, or guiding people to create digital art that journeys into the
subterranean layers of the subconscious, or bringing people together to
share as a collective in the most raw vulnerable way, Megwyn has a knack
for making it happen.  Her true gift lies in her ability to see
into the essence of people and gently draw out that essence into
powerful forms of expression. The Embodied Art Project is now a growing
and thriving movement whose central theme lies in the imperative of art
as a means of bringing together higher forms of consciousness while
accessing the primordial wisdom of the body.

Periodic panel discussions on various cutting-edge topics, followed by live performance and interactive embodiment activities are the hallmarks of our Salons.  

We kicked off our Salons in 2013 with a panel discussion on the life of Coco Chanel, exploring the questions of what is the new woman of our era, and what does it look like to be successful while remaining feminine.
