Let this whimsical animation take you back to your childhood, when your heart was open and free, and you would fly on the wings of imagination. Laugh, cry, and come home with this inspirational animation based on the book, Bird of the Soul by Ilchi Lee, illustrated by Jisu Han.
An animation for both children and adults, Bird of the Soul addresses a complex concern with a simple message.
Most of us think of youth as a time with hardly a care in the world. As we grow up, however, we become so caught up in our hectic schedules, financial worries, family responsibilities and more, that we lose our hope and passion for life. Bird of the Soul is a simple, whimsical guide to how we can get them back.
By portraying the soul as a bird, it demonstrates the Ilchi Lee’s belief that your soul is something you have a relationship with. It's your closest relationship and one that needs to be fostered throughout your life. Ignoring your soul makes it feel caged and neglected, while giving it attention and support let's it soar and be free. To live a meaningful life, the story illustrates, you need an intimate connection with your soul.
"My heart sings to be able to tell the story of discovery of the soul with pictures," says Lee. "This is a powerful messenger of love."
The hearts of many people have already been touched by this story. Prison inmates, addiction counseling patients, troubled teens, and pediatric patients have all rediscovered hope through Bird of the Soul
