Drawing Yourself as a Tree

Today we will use the metaphor of a tree to learn more about ourselves. Please find some paper and drawing material. Think about your station in life and draw a tree which represents this. Think of the many different types of trees and the elements of a tree. You might want to consider a season, its root system, its foliage, its ability to bear fruit, its usefulness in the world. There is no right or wrong way to do this. A tree can serve as a powerful symbol to draw and can reflect many facets of many layers of life.

Yesterday’s exercise:  Were you able to take a risk and make a new social connection? How did it feel? Did creating the scenario and conversation on paper make it easier? Could you take more social risks this week to forge new bonds?
