Recently, I was given the opportunity to take part in a
pilot program, a mental health and substance abuse curriculum, a training for lay volunteers.

The opening activity
in "Emotional Wellbeing"
was simple and elegant,
something worth sharing here:

1. How would you describe symbolically through colors and symbols your wellbeing? Create a figure by drawing an outline of who you are. Fill in with colors and symbols.

2. On the sides of the figure, indicate the ways your spiritual being is nurtured.

3. Show/Share with one or two people your Spiritual Being picture.

4. Discuss how we are all unique in our spiritual needs and development.

In the beginning,
my drawing
looked like this...

... and tomorrow
I will share the
symbols and colors
that fill her / me.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights... 
He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, 
that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
James 1:17-18
