“The whole world lies before us like a great quarry before the architect. Everything outside is only material, (and I would even include the outer layer of the self in this term,) but deep down in this core there is this creative power, the capacity to create what is to be and the urge to tolerate no let down until we have given it shape in one way or another, either outside ourselves, or in our own person.” Johann Wolfgang Goethe
Janneke NEX Agustin has always worked with the invisible, the Universe, God, seen and unseen beings – whatever name we may be comfortable to call her/him/them. As an artist, a writer, a performer, an educator, an organizer and as a Filipina, it was (is) but natural to call out into no-thingness, Bathala and bahala na in creating or manifesting out of that often invisible inspiration.
In the recent years, what was mostly unconscious she learned to be more conscious of:
to serve as an instrument of what wishes to express itself in the material or even ephemeral form through the skills, talents, and ideas she was gifted with.
Given her multiple interests and capacities, Nex continued (and continues) to venture into the unknown, hoping to contribute to solving the pressing concerns of her family, community, and her beloved country – the Philippines.
Through Conscious Heart Creations, she wishes to reach out to more people – individuals, organizations, companies and communities – to serve, educate, and create a better self, country and world. Creating her own unique path and staying the course with passion, compassion and commitment to her vision and intuition.
Nex has worked with communities and children in various parts of the country and in Mozambique, Africa. She prefers working with people on the ground, especially those who lack access to creative, empowering and healing education. Her creative works, organized events, volunteer work and consultancies reflect her advocacies and perspectives in life.
