Building A Compassionate Image

This exercise is to help you build up a compassionate image for you to work with and develop (you can have more than one if your wish, and they can change over time).  Whatever image comes  to mind,  or you choose to work  with note that  it is  your creation and therefore your own personal ideal what  you would  really  like from feeling cared for and cared about.
