Besides the obvious beauty of the dragonfly, the age-old symbolism of dragonflies is why this practice is named for them. “Having flown the earth for 300 million years, dragonflies symbolize our ability to overcome hardship. They can remind us to take time to reconnect with our own strength, courage, and happiness.” All of these pieces: strength, courage, and happiness are such important components in living your best life. The motto for Dragonfly Center for Counseling is “Embracing Change and Finding Balance”. When in flight, dragonflies have to embrace the changes that can occur in the environment in order to maintain balance during flight.
