VISION BOARD: Manifesting the life you want

 

You have dreams, things you want, crazy ideas and hopes. Perhaps you haven’t had the time in your life to address them and now the perfect occasion has arrived!  Vision Boards are a wonderful way to bring clarity and connection to your dreams.  This workshop is the place to acknowledge your deepest desires and begin the walk towards a year of fulfillment and joy.

You will design a board, set intentions and create affirmation cards to help you stay on track along the way.  There will be a moment to meditate so you can connect with your true self and innermost desires, essential oils to help set up the mood, snacks and light refreshments to keep you awake and happy, along with other little surprises.

In this interactive workshop you will take the time to nurture your soul and mind, that are usually confronted with routine, caregiving for others or a hectic life.  Towards the end of the session you will feel relaxed and happy, leaving with a finished art journal page and practical “take-away” tips to enjoy your life to the fullest.

The world MANDALA comes from the Sanskrit language and it basically means sacred circle. People have been making mandalas throughout human history to show wholeness and harmony.  The process of creating these designs triggers areas in your brain that make you feel relaxed and at peace.
