The purpose of my talk is to disrupt the status quo of exclusionary and confining narratives of the individual and community by engaging in an introspective practice of exploration of the atma to unravel the intricate threads of my identities. My complete story establishes the significance of critically examining the self and the profound impact such inquiry continues to have on my choices. I aim to connect you to an alternative, decolonized notion of self and other, expanding the limited Western concept of ‘identity.’ Through personal narratives, I describe the challenges of balancing the atma amidst overwhelming, dominant narratives of unprecedented power.
