Adam Baltieri’s (b. 1988, California) practice wants to evoke in everyday life the spaciousness of being. While embodying humanistic values on a pragmatic level, his work may be insightfully approached by reversing the imperceptive formula “humans have freedom.” In other words, his creative work is witness to freedom’s having humans and concerns the mystery.
Adam studied philosophy and has a bachelor's degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a master's degree from Freie Universität, Berlin. His engagement with Martin Heidegger had to do with the relationship between truth and freedom, and rediscovering philosophy as original experience.
Among other things, Adam practices yoga and is enlightened by select wisdom from traditions historically associated with the Indian Subcontinent, the Himalayas and East Asia. He is a proponent of combining Western therapeutic psychology and Eastern awareness practices to facilitate the gracious unfolding of personal life and the integration of something mysterious and more than personal.
