Courage to Change the World Through Presence: Color Expression
Today in MSKSI School of Awake, we discuss color therapy as an area of holistic healing that uses color in an attempt to affect our mood, emotions, and possibly even our health. There are different ways to incorporate color therapy into your life and to use intentional color association to affect daily and situational mood and emotions. Also, we discussed the power of color in the foods we eat (Eating the Rainbow) and the nutritional value and natural antioxidants that help our bodies heal and grow. Finally, we identified our most influential power hue and discovered ways to incorporate it into our lives more fully!
