"So, here we are. What can we give to the world? Finding purpose is a conscious practice. For some, it takes time. It takes introspection. It goes beyond leading a happy life and explores leading a fulfilling life. At its core, purpose is rooted in the reassurance that we belong here, even when we feel uprooted. And when life is arid, we find a way to respect and be grateful for the diversity that continues to thrive around us.
Finding purpose is about slowing down, grounding ourselves in a sense of place, crafting a conscious life. It’s about discovering what connects us to each other, and to this common ground that is our home." Elisabeth Ladwig

"Conscious Life" displays a surreal and imaginative piece of art. It portrays an individual who is at one with nature, their dress being made of pieces of prick pear cacti. The person's torso and arms are covered in bright pink flowers, with additional flowers adorning their wavy hair, suggesting a harmonious integration with the flora. They are holding an open lizard in their hands. The setting is a desert landscape with muted tones, featuring a variety of desert plants, including yucca and saguaro cacti, under a pale blue sky. This artwork fuses elements of the human form with those of the natural environment, creating a dreamlike tableau that invites contemplation of the connection between humans and the earth.
