BUTTERFLIES and BUTTONS

COURAGE JOURNEY

Butterflies are a strong metaphor for re-birth, hope, change and endurance. A number of workshop participants used butterfly imagery in their masks. We see a correlation between the astounding Monarch butterfly migrations and the personal journey’s of many of the participants.

The Buttons recall a participant’s way of managing the tasks she didn’t want to do – a ‘coloured button’ reward, a visual motivator for a completed task. Self-help or self-care are important factors in maintaining balance. Establishing routines and rituals to support well-being are some worthy examples of self-care.
