The next “Crafting My Best Life” project was to find out what we value, distill those values into single words and put those words on painted rocks. Painting rocks is fun!
Finding the values meant answering questions like : when have you felt needed by others…, if I could muster up the courage I would …, when were you inspired…, and then condense the answers into a single word. Rocks were used because values are solid, what a great way to express that! I put the value of creativity on the big rock, because that’s so important to me now. Compassion is on the smallest rock so I can put it in my pocket and take it with me always. Hozho is a Navajo word that’s translated as “beauty” but it’s like the beauty of being in balance with the universe. Sangha means community, it’s a value learned from Buddhism. The muslin bag came with the class kit – to hold our rocks, on it I wrote I will remember.
