The 2018 visioning workshop is radical and different from how I’ve ever organized it. It will have two major focal points, with hands-on solo, small-group, and large-group exercises for clear application, plus plenty of time for Q-and-A to make sure your specific reality is addressed and you feel equipped to apply anything you’re interested in experimenting with or adopting. The day will culminate as always in a creative vision-boarding exercise, that will (for return participants) include both familiar and new components. (Of course, I’ll invite you to approach all of it with beginner’s mind.)
Focal point #1: Make your primary focus to feel good. Is that what you did in 2017? Hey, people felt bad A LOT in 2017. I’m bent on doing my part to invite everyone to organize 2018 around feeling good. This feel-good focus is not random in terms of visioning and creating the life (and world!) you want. A central tenet in the teachings on Law of Attraction from Abraham-Hicks is that if you PRIORITIZE minding your feeling states, everything changes. If you truly make it your business day in and day out, now and now and now, to pay attention to how you feel and scooch toward feeling good, you’ll be able to create from that place, which means you’ll create in the most inspired way, with effortlessness and nonresistance leading the way. (For anyone getting nervous already, I’ll be addressing how it’s actually the opposite of selfish and self-absorbed to give so much focus to feeling good.)
Focal point #2, the increased-self-awareness piece of the workshop, centers around the Enneagram teachings on the three instincts. We’ll look at this revelatory information that you may find shocking--it so clarifies how you can trip yourself up in going for and aligning with the life you want. Know your instinctual blind spot and understand how it holds you back, and how to heal and counter that. Harness your primary instinct in the healthiest, most balanced way, in order to keep moving toward what you want to be and create. I predict you will LOVE the clear light this shines on your particular get-in-your-own-way tendencies that baffle you. It also further illuminates the healing and growth process you’ve been in over the years.
I’ll explain and support you to understand the 3 instincts at the workshop. You must come knowing your Enneagram type and understanding what it means about you and the unique ways you express and inhabit the set of characteristics that universally go with that type. I’ll give roughly 30 minutes of email and/or phone time before the workshop to anyone who isn’t already very clearly and solidly typed or anyone who wants to delve into her type more deeply. This is included in the price.
The vision-boarding aspect of the workshop is a silent activity (with no-lyrics music in the background supporting a dreamy experience) that takes a good 3 hours of the day to allow each participant to get in the zone and play with images and feelings that allow authentic expression. It's not an art project, though it invites and allows your artistic self to come out and play. It also provides a sort of right-brain bath that's fun and absorbing and supports your thinking self to Get Out of the Way. What isn't all thought-out and understood can reveal itself, symbols can sneak in, colors and themes can surprise you, and much more. You'll gain the most if you love the process and let go of what product will come of it. I invite you to drop your ideas of vision-boarding and come in fresh to see what can happen. This year's collaging exercise will ask you to organize your image- and word-hunting around FEELING GOOD and to drop an agenda of expressing goals for the year or for your life pictorially or of seeking to somehow represent all aspects of who you are or want to be in your becoming.
