thoughts about a community art project...
it's called growing compassion.
my hope is that it continues to inspire compassion as it hangs on the wall at the center for creative resources in houston, tx.
i collected messages and art on small squares of paper from the 2017 compassion fest and NAMI houston walk.
people visiting the booths were asked if they would like to make some art and write a compassionate message to themselves, others, and/or the community.
the messages were tied so that they move freely and both sides of the cards are visible.
"A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life."
they say to practice self-compassion is to treat yourself like you would treat a beloved friend.
join us friday, april 28th from 7 to 8:30 pm at yogaleena studio to learn how to cultivate positive emotions toward yourself.
research has found that people who practice self-compassion are more resilient, less reactive, and have a healthier self-concept.
registration in advance is recommended on the yogaleena website.
see you there.
