Experientials Vol. 12

These weeks are going by so fast. I can't believe that it is almost November and that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I will be ready for the break...

So in this experiential we were supposed to think of a time when we felt powerful and then have a dialog with a partner about it using open questions. I had a hard time thinking of a time that I felt powerful because it is not a word I usually associate with myself, so I think that it actually has more to do with a time that I felt successful.

This one was a really quick one. We had a piece of paper and then folded it into eighths. Our teacher then prompted us to draw a quick gesture in each square as she read out an emotion. From left to right they are, top row: anger, fear, joy and sadness; bottom row: disgust, acceptance, anticipation and surprise. We were then asked to pick out two that seemed to be at odds with each other and try to create a picture with the two of them. In my combined image I used sadness and acceptance and tried to create a harmony between the two. I think that this could symbolize the needing to be held when you are sad, or also being accepted in spite of your sadness (or being allowed to feel sadness and not always having to be happy). It was an interesting exercise.

So that was my day in a nutshell...
