At the Shabbaton, Rav Elisha held a session on using part of birkot hashachar (the morning blessings) to reflect our true, ideal selves. We looked at the wording in ״הי נשמה שנתת בי טהורה היא״ and “מודה אני״ and reflected on what it meant to be recreated fresh every morning. Then, we created abstract paintings of ourselves in our Truest Form. For myself, I tried to capture the free, wild nature of my soul that I feel is sometimes too consumed with seeking order and structure.
