Finding Meaning & Wisdom
The path to finding meaning & wisdom can mean different things to different people.
With the Wise Living Institute about to celebrate its’ second birthday (CELEBRATION TIME!), I’ve been reflecting on the inception of WLI and how I wanted it to be visually represented.
A major piece in the creation of the Wise Living Institute was the design and development of a deeply meaningful logo. Because the logo would visually represent WLI, the elements and design needed to be visual representations of the foundations, mission statement and purpose of WLI.
Several years ago, I realized I had outgrown the small bubble of my coaching practice. As a result, it was time to (re)design my passionate work in the world. And so began the process to find meaning and wisdom for my new vision.
Finding Meaning in The Inception of the Wise Living Institute Logo
Working with my team, we set the foundation for the Institute. A foundation based in the four (4) element theory of living, in following one’s innate wisdom, and that personal growth leads to one’s deep understanding of purpose and living passionately.
Next, with the mission statement finalized, it was time to design our logo. I envisioned something nature-inspired; representing the four (4) element theory of living and the cycles of nature. In addition, the logo needed to contain the elements of unity, community, and connectedness. It had to inspire growth, but also convey being rooted in one’s inner strengths.
A logo with meaningful color and a sense of fluidity and empowered femininity.
From there, it didn’t take long and with only a few edits, the logo for the Wise Living institute was created.
Finding Meaning in the Significance of the Logo
Each piece of this logo has great significance:
A Eucalyptus tree representing evolution and roots.
Moon and sun showing the cycles of nature.
And a golden ring depicting unity and spiritual connection.
In addition, the elements of the tree are symbolic of the personal growth process:
~ Eucalyptus leaves symbolize cleansing and healing power. They protect one’s sacred space and allow one to flourish in that safety, with great support.
~ Crocus flowers: represent youthfulness and happiness, and engage us to be forever curious.
All these elements evoke feelings of evolution, of growth and connectedness, and of self-awareness and self-empowerment.
Consequently, the logo conveys the WLI mission of Access Your Inner Knowing, Align with Your Purpose, Live Your truth.
