Bucket filling “movement” This tone set has been brought into classrooms and churches around the country for many years. What is the “bucket”? The bucket represents your mental and emotional self. How do you feel when your bucket is full? You feel more confident, secure, calm, patient and friendly. Your thoughts are positive and you expect positive results. When your bucket is overflowing you experience an intense happiness that can spread to those around you. Barbara Salvaggi Youth & Family Coordinator at Portland Unity recently finished the summers curriculum using this series, Marelu Greco, Seattle Unity’s Youth & Family coordinator also has extensive experience in this.
