- Geekery (Science, Tech and Life Hacks)
- Session type
- Technical level
Tired of being stuck in a box and living up to the expectations of a predefined role? Looking to need less and do more? Impress less and be more? Keen to open up your life to new experiences, adventures and possibilities? And yet, achieve it all without squelching other peoples’ spirits or encroaching on their freedom?
Stories from my journey could help you get started on yours.
I will share experiences to illustrate a few ideas that guide me on the path to ‘free-spiritism’:
• Shifting Perspective • Relishing the Unexpected • Finding Beauty Everywhere • Pleasure vs Happiness • Loneliness vs Aloneness • Questioning Convention & Private Rebellion • Life On the Road & Temporary Nomadism • Staying Healthy on a Shoestring Budget • Gamified Giving
Come as you are
Hi, I’m Ananya. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I love seeing new places, and have been backpacking solo and otherwise since my mid teens. I also love yoga, street photography, urban gardening, and collecting and telling stories. I’m a film maker by education, and currently work as a user experience researcher and designer.
