Longs Peak Room (LSC)
This session will use the international best-selling guide by Marie Kondo, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing,” as a springboard to a larger conversation around finding joy and worthiness in the midst of our modern culture of consumerism. We will examine the ways tidying one’s surroundings and respecting one’s possessions can be a metaphor, and even catalyst, for a radical unlearning of the ways we seek belonging and self-worth through consumption, collection, and exhibition of material objects.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about the KonMari Method, critique their own role as a consumer, and develop a more mindful approach to their everyday lives. Participants will learn practical strategies to clearing clutter in their office, car, or home and have an opportunity to dig deeper into the emotional impact of clutter. The session will be interactive, with opportunity for discussion.
