Let's chew on life's big questions together!

Please feel free to follow the various challenges in whatever order you see fit, and above all enjoy yourself!

This group discussion is for members only.

Group Description

SoulPancake is a movement to chew on life's big questions. It's a space to tackle art, philosophy, creativity, and spirituality, and ultimately, soulpancake is about you - the thinkers, artists, poets and misfits who seek to stamp out stigmas, shake up truths, and redefine what it means to be human.

Inspired by the SoulPancake movement, this group will tackle 52 weeks of challenges found in the SoulPancake book to see just how alive we all are (and hopefully inspire some brilliant photography along the way). Every week for one year, the group will tackle a challenge and allow their experience in doing so to inspire a photograph. Some challenges are relatively easy, some are extremely difficult. But all are intended to make you more fully aware of the world around you and your place in it. Some very easily inspire photography concepts, while others will be a little tougher. Creativity in satisfying challenges is encouraged.

We will also have ongoing discussion threads tackling difficult questions, concepts and themes from the SoulPancake book. Discussion is intended to challenge your opinions, emotions and perceptions. Our members are encouraged to both take part in the weekly challenges and weekly photos as well as participate in ongoing open discussion in the forums.

We will not tolerate any form of disrespect in this group. This group is about coming together and raising the bar both for our photography and in our interactions with the people and the world around us. In other words, if you're an ass to someone else, your ass is out of here.
