Getting Started with Wishing Well
Wishing Well is a powerful ritual that allows us to instantly calm ourselves while offering love and caring to others. It’s a way to help one another when there is no physically tangible way to be helpful.
This ritual is especially helpful now, when reminders of safety, kindness, love and unity are much needed.
Wishing Well provides the developmental need for safety and reminds us of the Power of Unity: We are all in this together. This ritual is especially helpful now, when reminders of safety, kindness, love and unity are much needed.
