Vision Boards as Springboards

PDF Flyer

POSTPONED DUE TO COVID19

POSTPONED DUE TO COVID19 – New Date To Be Determined – Vision Boards as Springboards
A Full-day Immersion To Focus on Your Authentic Life and Your Ideal Outcomes
Saturday, May 2, 2020
9am-4pm
at The Stable with Heidi Gessner
$150 includes morning snack, lunch, beverages, all materials

Description: Most of us have fleeting ideas of what we want to be, do or have in our lives. But they remain just that: fleeting. After all, who has the time to intentionally get clear about what we want to create? A Vision Board is a way to sell your own ideas to yourself, to anchor to your dreams and to allow the magic of manifestation to work in your life. A Vision Board is about getting clear on your authentic life and then letting go of what’s in the way. This allows you to clearly connect with your dreams and design a vision that’s calling you.

Here’s some of what you’ll get at this retreat: Clarity on what you really want (No more settling for someone else’s dreams) • Space and time to map out your ideal outcomes in each area of your life • Connection with like-minded peers • All the tools and time to create your own powerful Vision Board (You don’t have to bring a thing) • Invitation to my EnVision Facebook Group (to receive motivational tips and share and engage with fellow retreatants) • A full day of breathing room and dream-time • A yummy lunch!

The Art of Disappearing
A retreat inspired by the poetry of Naomi Shihab Nye
Saturday, June 13 , 2020
9am-4pm

at The Stable with Claudia Fulshaw and Mandy Mizelle Norris
$150 includes morning snack, lunch, beverages, all materials

Description: Disappear for a day?! How delightful! This isn’t magic — it is a retreat away from all that keeps you distracted and occupied, a day to get lost in the poetry of Naomi Shihab Nye. A gift of time to ponder, to wander, to reflect with creative writing, and to notice what appears out of nowhere while engaged in simple art prompts. Inspired by Nye’s words, one another, and the beauty of our surroundings, we will practice the art of remembering who we are and reconnecting with what is most important to us, what is too important to forget. Presence and process over perfection. No art or writing experience is required for this guided and exploratory retreat!

Pondering, Painting & Planting Peace Poles

REGISTER!

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: June 15, 2020

Pondering, Painting & Planting Peace Poles
Wednesday, June 24, 6-8pm & Thursday, June 25, 9:30am-4:30pm
at Florence Thomas School of the Arts, West Jefferson, NC with Claudia Fulshaw
$170

Description: So what is a Peace Pole? They seem to be popping up everywhere! The Peace Pole movement started in Japan in the 1950’s in response to the bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Masahisa Goi, a philosopher, teacher and the originator of the Peace Pole, dedicated his life to spreading the message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” A classic Peace Poles bears this message, typically in different languages, on each of the four sides of the pole. At this 2-day workshop, we will learn the history of the movement as well as spend some time reflecting on peace in our lives and how we’ve been inspired by peace and peacemakers throughout history. Using this knowledge as inspiration, we will then create our own, 4′ tall Peace Pole. We will be working in an array of colors and you can choose to add the original message and/or your own thoughts, quotes, prayers, or poetry, all with the intention of spreading a little more peace, love and light in this world. All materials will be provided, including a 4′ tall by 4″ square, pressure treated, primed, wood post, a solar light cap, a stake for planting, paint, protective clear coat, templates and brushes. Assistance with design and lettering will be provided.
