I was recently
certified as a True Colors facilitator. True Colors is a color version
of the Myers Briggs indicator. The founder of True Colors, Don Lowry liked
using color as a metaphor to translate complicated personality theory into
It was kind of a no
brainer marrying True Colors with Be Brave. Lose the Beige, since there is a
fun color centric focus to the process of identifying your color spectrum.
While Be Brave. Lose the Beige is not just about color, I liked the idea
of using color as a metaphor in our quest for self discovery. Yes, even
at our “age” as Lady Boomers, there is still room for self discovery and
increased self awareness.
Jackie, and I have been conducting a four week study during Lent. The Lenten
season provides an excellent opportunity for journeying into the wilderness of
your selves and gaining an appreciation for your own skills, talents and
abilities, as well as that of those around you. Once our participants
(and there have been at least 25) identified their true colors (blue, orange,
green, or gold), we encouraged them to engage in a “brightening” exercise in
which they illustrated their color spectrum. The following are a couple
of photos of our Lady Boomers’ art work.
As an an avowed
“Blue”, I have loved listening to the stories from our Lady Boomers and
beholding their creative efforts. I look forward to more.
