We're usually familiar with our own way of thinking, how we make sense of reality and what we value. A festival is an opportunity to explore new perspectives. When we do, we uncover new insights, new ways of knowing and new aspects of ourselves.
Throughout the Rebel Wisdom Festival, we encourage you to experiment with different ways of seeing the world and yourself. We've created a list of archetypes (symbols that represent different ways of being) to help you do this. Some of them may be familiar and comfortable, others less so. We invite you to try on different archetypes throughout the festival and play with what it's like to connect with the world and others through a different set of eyes. If one of them calls to you, you can use it as your Zoom profile picture. Change it throughout the two days as much as you like. It lets others know what archetype you're currently playing with, and vice versa.
Hover over the image to get a short description and press 'Choose' if you like the sound of it, then save it to your device and set it as your Zoom profile picture. You can also find all of the files in Meeting Pulse. Have fun!

What the f*ck is going on? We have a new series premiering in 20 minutes asking this question, exploring how we arrive at truth and make sense of reality. Starting with a look back at one of the attempts to answer the question, the Intellectual Dark Web. youtu.be/VkKnOEQlwl4
