Vision Board Workshop

 Manifest your goals for the year ahead, by creating a Vision Board. Using powerful visualisation techniques, combined with exercises and discussion - identify and clarify your life goals - from health & fitness, to relationships and career.. We will look at how to set realistic and achievable outcomes, break these down into actions and consider obstacles.

Once aims have been clarified, choose one of your goals for the year ahead, and use this as a subject for your collage, or vision board. With help on hand from Tutor Zoe Eaton, select images and words from magazines, combined with mixed media techniques to create a beautiful image..

Your finished vision board works by 'fixing' and reinforcing your aims, whilst subconsiously informing your future decisions and actions to help realise your goals. Some research suggests that when you visualise an action, you stimulate the same brain regions as when you actually perform that action. It really can work!

There are two dates to choose from, price £10 inc materials and herbal tea.  To book please message us - places are limited.
