James Welsby – Ultimate Form

An Iso-somatic Session

Something that I’ve learned from doing drag is that we can change and shape shift all the time. I don’t see drag as just an exterior change, but a state that is invited into the body. It can be a state that sees you in your power harnessing the amplification or contrast that the alter ego can provide. This meditation invites you to “mindcast” a transformative aesthetic through imagined makeup and costume to deliver the power of drag into your raw body, and explore the possibility of an “ultimate form.”

Minimum price: $1.50
