Emotions don't take place in a thought bubble over our heads. They're electrochemical messengers that race throughout our bodies and move us to action. When we know how we FEEL, it's easier to figure out what to DO. Yet many of us struggle to put our feelings into words and have trouble benefitting from the information they provide.
This deck can help by bringing common emotions vividly to life on separate, beautifully illustrated cards. It s a tried-and-true toolbox that helps you answer the fundamental question, How do I feel?
Your inner wisdom speaks in the language of emotion. Being able to put your feelings into words helps you find your way home to who you truly are.

Pick-a-Postcard: Metaphors for Life Reflection Deck
Genre: Purpose & Priority
Cards: 40 Guidebook: 2
Transcend the traditional sharing circle and reflection conversation with the power of metaphoric imagery. People often find it easier to express themselves through a picture or symbol rather than through verbal means. Because participants can talk about the object or image rather than about themselves directly, they express thoughts that would otherwise be left unsaid. The thoughts, ideas and connections inspired by the imagery lead to broader and deeper reflection sessions because metaphors and symbols stimulate multiple areas of the brain and involve all senses. This approach can be especially helpful for more introverted or reluctant group members.
This tool is useful for both individual and collaborative reflection and is used in restorative circles and appreciations, group norms conversations, and goal setting.
• Facilitate strong beginnings and optimistic endings to group work or coaching sessions.
• Inspire meaningful engagement, reflection and dialogue that goes beyond traditional verbal techniques.
• Spark creative writing, exploration of personal or group strengths or goals.
