*Remember to ask participants if they are
afraid of balloon.
1st: Ask each other participant to come up with one psychological feeling which
cannot be repeated.
2nd: Provide a balloon and ask each one to write the chosen feeling on it. After
that, everyone leaves the ballon in the middle.
3rd: Invite the participants to look at the balloons and observe all written feelings.
Then, the facilitator grabs one feeling (one balloon) and passes it to one
participant with body expression regarding such emotion.
4th: Continue doing the same, passing more balloons, and ask participants to not
let any balloons touch the ground. Participants juggle those emotions for a while.
