Perhaps you have lost sight of your dreams or feel like you don’t have a clear picture of what you love to do. This workshop will help you explore your passions and create a record of them for you to focus on.
The next visioning workshop will be on Saturday 15th June 2019, 11.00 – 4.30pm in Surry Hills, Sydney. Doors open at 10.30am to give you time to make a name tag, grab a cup of tea and get settled. The opening circle will begin promptly at 11.00am.
We invite you to join us for ‘Visualising your dreams’ our Vision Board Workshop. For many people New Year is when we make resolutions, by halfway through the year we can have fogotten them or been sidetracked by a busy life. The good news is it’s not too late! The middle of the year is a powerful time for reflecting and reconnecting with what you would like to grow – planting your seeds of intentions to manifest your goals and aspirations for the coming Spring. The vision board/cards will be the mirror of your feelings and a lasting ‘take home’ reminder of the processes we use in the workshop.
Thank you for a very enjoyable Vision Board workshop and for the beautiful, safe, and caring space you created. It was great to reconnect to some old dreams and create/ imagine new futures. – M.S.
A beautiful way to reconnect, nourish and ponder my innermost me! – Moira
Jade, thank you for a fabulously indulgent afternoon where I got to think about me, my dreams and seeing them in a visual format. It was absolutely delightful. – G.R.
The workshop will be held in face to face mode, in the vibrant and central inner city village of Surry Hills, Sydney NSW. We will meet upstairs at 405 Crown Street in the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre. This venue is above the iconic Surry Hills Library, which is close to public transport (both buses and train).
