Sayings of the Wise

The mouth should have three gatekeepers: ‘Is it true’? ‘Is it kind’? and ‘Is it necessary’?

Some times we say things that are not true, we say them to please ourselves without thinking of the implications of those lies to ourselves and to others. Other times we say things that are cruel, not kind to others. Our words hurt others, sometimes intentionally and sometimes not. Many times we find ourselves uttering words that are not necessary at all, keeping quiet would have been the best solution, but we don’t. We say all the lies, unkind words and unnecessary words because our mouths do not have these gatekeepers.

The Healing Hands Project: Wisdom and Wellness through Art

We are excited to launch the #HealingHands project. The project supports interpersonal counseling, group talk therapy and psychoeducation resources to be delivered through arts, where clients learn to handcraft traditional beaded jewelry as a marketable skill. It also promotes the economic growth of grandmothers who are trained in and are implementing WHO’s mental health Gap Action Program #mhGAP. Income generated from sales of the jewelry will also support the sustainable implementation of accessible psychosocial interventions among underserved communities. Follow us @TEWWYWisdom @WisdomWellnessCollection to stay posted.
