    THE STORY OF EXISTENTIAL ALCHEMY

    About Anna, The Existential Alchemist & girl in black pants...

    I teach body-positivity and inclusive classes and workshops; and was the former founder of SIZEMOLOGY Dance. My educational experiences range from movement, to performance, to sexual health & wellbeing, confidence and more - all with the every BODY budget in mind. I am also an independently contracted counselor and operations/project manager in Knoxville, Tennessee. I offer individual consultations on a wide variety of topics aimed at finding meaning in one's life - email for more information. I am the proud owner and manager of Black Pants Girls dance classes in Knoxville, TN.

     

    I have been blessed to have been an artistic director of a performance art organization and has been both a wedding planner and a unique events consultant for clients for many years. I have also performed as a Black Pants Dancer, and member of the performance art collective OOHX2 Entertainment monthly with the variety show THE OOH OOH REVUE which was a modern-style variety show that innovates performance art and vaudeville. In the end I believe 100% in developing positive body-image and health at every age, as well as working towards a healthful life even if you are a plus-size individual. I wholeheartedly believe in beauty at all sizes, ages and stages of one's life.

     

    WHAT IS AN EXISTENTIALIST?

    Existentialism is a philosophy, which sees humans, with will and consciousness and as being in a world of objects which do not have those qualities. The fact that humans are conscious of their mortality, and must make decisions about their life is what existentialism is all about. Many religions and philosophies say that human life has a meaning (or a purpose); but people who believe in existentialism think that the world and human life have no meaning unless people give them meaning. This means that we find ourselves existing in the world, and then we give ourselves meaning, or 'essence'. More simply put, the 'essence' of a human, or what makes a human a 'human', is not due to nature or uncontrollable circumstances; rather, human essence is really just what we choose to make it. This means that the only nature we as humans have is the nature we make for ourselves. As a result of this, existentialists think that the actions or choices that a person makes are very important. They believe that every person has to decide for themselves what is right and wrong, and what is good and bad.
