Dragons Unitegma

The first week of this program seemed too good to be true. We had met each other four days before, but it felt like we’d known each other for years. Over time, however, the group started to separate and cliques were formed. Tension got to the point where in the middle of our second week, the I-team felt like they needed to intervene as a part of our mid course reflection. they planned a discussion about it that was to last up to one hour, but it ended lasting three. At first the discussion was slow and awkward but overtime, we share our feelings and were all working together to be the united group we once were. A feeling of compassion overtook me and I needed to express it in some way; it ended up being a drawing. I am forever grateful for the Land of The Dragon that gave us the opportunity to learn about empathy.
