February 23 Workshop at Whetstone Workgroup
Vision boards have been all the rage lately. I held one myself the first week of January (here’s a write up on it in Pittsburgh Magazine). The New Year is always a good time to reflect on where we are and where we’re headed. At the request of some who couldn’t make it in January, I’ll be holding another workshop, this one on Feb. 23 at Whetstone Workgroup.
I love that this one will be closer to spring and what was once celebrated as the New Year. Did you know that the earliest New Year celebrations were held at the spring equinox? It’s no wonder we have so many events that mark this most-anticipated change of seasons. Later, the Romans celebrated March 1 as the New Year. This is all a long way of saying, let’s gather on February 23 and map out our visions for the rest of the year. Before that first crocus pokes out of the ground, you’ll have a board that reflects your year and life in “full bloom.”
About the workshop
This hands-on workshop will be limited to 12 people and provide a fun, informal space for you to create a vision board. What’s a vision board? It’s a collage of images, quotes, and objects that you assemble to provide a visual daily reminder of what’s important to you.
Snacks and drinks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your own dinner if you want something more substantial.
How to register
It’s simple. Register via the Eventbrite event page.
What to bring
This is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Board) workshop. A heavy cardstock or corkboard will work just fine, but bring any backing that appeals to you. Bring it as a blank slate and leave with a personally inspiring vision board!
Also bring along any photos, quotes, trinkets, or objects that have personal significance to you. Keep in mind that your board should focus on how you want to feel, not just things that you want or feel you “should” be pursuing. (For more on this and how visualization works, see this Huffington Post piece.)
We’ll have magazines and other supplies, but feel free to bring any of your own as well. We’ll see you on the 23rd!
