Being implies consistency. Becoming implies change. The philosopher, Heraclitus is credited with championing the notion that nothing in this world is constant except for change and becoming. Others posit that there is a pure and eternal being behind nature. It seems unlikely that either camp is exclusively correct, but our language favors the notion of consistency. We refer to ourselves as human beings, which we are. And also, we are human becomings—in process, continually unfolding, changing forevermore. The oft-quoted aphorism, “know thyself,” is then a deeply complex edict, but an important one nonetheless. There are many paths by which to explore this central question of self, and "Human Becomings" offers a few. If any of these offerings resonate with you, please be in touch with me at
