EGAKU Participant Interviews
Painting helped me organize my thoughts
- it felt like clearing the fog of my mind
Founder & Representative Director
Will Lab Inc.
Going back to my core essence,
"painting" a new life with courage
The richness of diverse perspectives
inspired me deeply every time
Painting helps me focus on myself, rather
than comparing myself to other people
Looking inside myself and being honest
with myself - that's been liberating
Experiencing art as something personal, something that belongs to me
– that’s an amazing feeling
Global cosmetics company
I've always wanted to be true to myself, to have the confidence to be myself. EGAKU gave me that confidence.
Education management company
Noticing those small changes in myself - I think that's helped me build confidence.
Manager, Corporate Strategy
Global healthcare company
Taking the time to look inward and engage with our deeper selves - I think that's something we all need to do from time to time.
It's helped me understand myself better, and also transformed my relationships with people around me into much deeper, nourishing connections.
Office management company
These days I'm less anxious about pleasing other people. It's an empowering feeling.
Multinational IT company
You never know what's going to happen, what you're going to draw… That's why I feel it brings out the real me.
Giving myself permission to slow down and focus on myself rather than constantly thinking about what was going on around me. Making time for self-reflection - that was a revelation.
Global business consulting company
I now have a clearer vision for my company and what I want to do.
I'm not sure I've changed. It's been a process of freeing myself from my self-limiting beliefs, of rediscovering something that's been there all the time.
