One of the many big reveals I made at the end of April was that I will be teaching, along with a fabulous team of artists, at the Creatives Celebrating Sisterhood Retreat in April of 2013. I can’t tell you how excited I am about the retreat! Some mornings as I wake up and step out of bed, it is the very first thing on my mind.
This morning was one of those days. I awoke with a deep desire to share with you a bit about the workshop I am teaching. Passport to Dreams Come True is a blending of several loves of mine: journaling, paper dolls, bookmaking, and dreamcasting.
I suppose dreamcasting might be a odd concept to some. For me it means taking a seedling of a dream and looking into the future to help plan out how best to nurture and tend to it; it also means understanding the many courses a dream might take and how to make shifts that will help your heart get what it needs. You might also call it goal setting, but isn’t this so much more interesting!?
During the Passport to Dreams Come True, I will be introducing techniques for quieting the restless mind so that you can tune into the desires of your heart. I will offer a series of visual journaling exercises which when combined with simple bookmaking techniques will give you a guide for where your dream might grow. Together we will explore the landscape of bringing a dream to fruition, the unexpected turns, the disappointments and exhilarating highs. In the end, you will have the beginnings of a booklet to turn to as your dream takes on its own life and ongoing exercises to add to it in order to document the journey to its becoming.
Class members will be encouraged to share in small circles, so not only will you walk away with your own inner wisdom but just might gain from the insight of another. Sharing is always voluntary. This workshop will be designed to value your unique creative process.
This class will offer you the opportunity to create a really cool, personalized art book. The techniques are flexible and can be used through out the course of life. They serve as a fun and creative way to dive into dreams that have been quietly waiting their turn or to jump start an old journey that has lost a bit of its vigor.
