Symbols Cards (IN4575)
Simple, potent icons to illuminate almost any situation. Go where words alone cannot.
Symbols evoke profound emotions and memories, often without our making rational or conscious connections. They surround us and they help navigate through life, providing short cuts to understandings, ideas and feelings. In a therapeutic relationship, the use of visual images can assist a client to get in touch with otherwise inaccessible personal realities.
Symbols is a set of cards featuring 100 hand-drawn, iconic images that have resonance for people grappling with the big questions in life. Some of the symbols evoke difficulties and challenges (Knot, Hourglass, Question Mark, Gravestone). Others bring to mind possibilities, hopes and achievement (Trophy, Balloon, Rainbow, Bridge). Some of the symbols transcend cultures; some might feel very familiar to you, others less so.
