Next Vision Board Workshop
March 16, 7:00-9:00
917 W. Savidge Street, Suite #37
Spring Lake, MI 49456

For our next face-to-face vision board session, the topic for March will be “Spring Cleaning”.  We will start the session with thoughtful questioning and discussion.

  • With spring just begining to appear, what clutter do you wish to clean out in your physical space?
  • What clutter do you wish to clean out from your inner-space?
  • How do you make room for the new?

Then, we will all create a vision board! All supplies will be provided. Your vision can focus on the “spring cleaning” discussion, or it might go in a completely different direction…where ever the soul leads!

917 W. Savidge Street, Suite #37
Spring Lake, MI 49456

A vision board workshop with Susan Loughrin is available every month.  Join us for the next face-to-face vision board session in February. The topic will be Hibernation.

We will start the session with thoughtful questioning and discussion. 

Definition: Hibernation occurs with exposure to low temperatures and occurs principally during winter seasons when there are lengthy periods of low environmental temperatures.  A state of greatly slowed metabolism and low body temperature in winter in certain animals.

  • During these cold winter months, how have your daily routines been effected? 
  • Do you notice a sense of “hibernation” during the winter months?  What do you notice? 

Then, we will all create a vision board!  All supplies will be provided.  Your vision can focus on the “hibernation” discussion, or it might go in a completely different direction…where ever the soul leads!

December Vision Board Workshop

16 12 2010

What a special, wonderful evening.

We reflected on the year…what were the highlights?  What did we notice overall for the year?  Then, we discussed how those noticings connected to the greater picture of our lives, moving us forward.

Once we began creating our vision boards, the ideas and dreams we sought came through in the images and words we found.  It is interesting to note that some of us connect more with words, some with images, and some a combination of both.  How exciting to know that we are all on our unique path discovering together!

Two poems were read during the “setting of intention” at the start of the session.  Here they are below:

Robert Frost (1874–1963).  Mountain Interval.  1920.
 
1. The Road Not Taken
 

 
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;         5
 
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,         10
 
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.         15
 
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.         20

 

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

-Robert Frost, 1923

Vision Board Workshop~Bounty

19 11 2010

The discussion for November’s session revolved around “bounty”.  

The energy is wonderful during these Vision Board Workshops!  It is delightful learning and connecting with others.

Where is there abundance in your life right now?  From the small group discussions we heard the myriad of ways that others are discovering the “bounty” in their lives.  We discovered that even though we come from different experiences, we can find wonder in the day-to-day riches of our lives.

The ever-present laughter and conversation as we created our unique vision boards is so warming to the soul!  Looking at images, being reminded of what someone said in the discussion, sharing images with one another and holding close those images that are personal and important kept us busy for about an hour! 

Sharing the final images brings about a sense of “uniqueness”.  While some put their images directly onto the board and shared, others shared the images they had pulled, but will attach later, and others took the images they have found and put them into a folder for later contemplation. 

Whichever way is chosen is just right for that person. 

Thank you for sharing the evening of Vison Board Workshops!  What a joy to know you all!  If you take a photo of your vision board and wish to share it, click here:  http://tinyurl.com/2dq5xbk

The next Vision Board Workshop is December 15 from 7:00-9:00.  Looking forward to seeing you there!
