Vision Boards Retreat

Vision Boards are a powerful way of checking in with your desires and living in alignment with who you really are, thus living a fulfilling and meaningful life.

I have been running Vision Board workshops for the last five years, and personally creating vision boards for the last ten years. In this time I have seen some powerful results from the intention and visions being created.

In this workshop, we will reflect on the learnings from the past year, create a “mission statement” or “purpose”, and then create a vision board for the next year and beyond. Using the creative process to transform, a group to reflect with, and a space to connect the internal and external, we will provide an opportunity for positive change.

Vision boards are used in many ways to refocus on values, core desires and to manifest the life we want.

The idea behind this is that when you put energy into something, and when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to travel to, your life changes to match those images and those desires.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

1. I can’t draw and I’m no good at art. Can I still come to this workshop?

Yes of course you can! You don’t need any artistic talent or experience for art therapy.

The creative process is just that- a process. Art therapy intends to allow the creative process to be the focus of art making. By taking away the need to produce “art”, the pressure of making aesthetically pleasing works that will be judged dissipates. By allowing the process to be the focus, your internal messages, insights and emotions feel safe to emerge.

The often spoken about block to art making is the belief and fear that “I am not creative” or “I am not artistic” “I can’t draw” “I am bad at art”. These collective and common beliefs can hinder the benefit of creativity. It is important to look at these beliefs and where they came from. They often come from a place of perfectionism, or judgement and of external expectations. If we can accept these judgements as present in the external world, and allow them to be there, then the power they have over us in our art making process is reduced. It is possible to let go of these all together.

This work you create is for you only. It is for you to express your truth, and map your journey through this life. There is nothing wrong with you or needing improving. Every piece of art you create has its own voice, impact and expression, which are all valid! If we can create from this place, we will be able to feel even more power from the healing of the creative process.

2. I want to come but I am resistant to doing things visually because I judge what I create.

Ahh this is a good one- resistance is an old friend of mine, and I have found that resistance is an important part of the creative process. Without resistance, there is no pressure, and with manageable pressure, transformation happens. If you think about the caterpillar in the cocoon or a baby bird coming out of its hard shell, there is a great deal of resistance in the process to transforming into something new. So I am learning that resistance is okay, and sometimes it’s the cocoon faze, and sometimes its time to take chances, even if you feel you aren’t ready!

3. I want to come but I don’t have the finances to come at the moment.

If this is something you are interested in, then we can set up a payment plan. If finances are the only thing holding you back then lets chat about how we can make it work. Vision boards are a great thing to do around abundance also!

4. What do I bring with me to the workshop?

All materials are provided, so you don’t need to bring anything at all! If you do notice images or words over the next few weeks that you are drawn to, feel free to bring them along, but it is not necessary. We have plenty of varied materials to choose from! There will be a lunch break so you can either bring your lunch or purchase it at a nearby cafe.

I loved this workshop Amanda! I felt like the highlight was really the whole day and process. If I had to pick a few:

  • The opportunity to pare down the words and have the opportunity to create something from my heart.
  • The meditative process and relaxed atmosphere round the creation process.
  • Connecting to others in the group, lovely dynamic.
  • The end result!

Being in a space with others looking for a similar opportunity was inspiring. I enjoyed the whole process and sharing our boards and hearing other’s thoughts at the end. Thank you for your caring and gentle approach.

I overcame the resistance and feel the creative process was great for my mind and body.

Finding my purpose statement was very valuable. I enjoyed sharing with others and making the board!

Creating the piece – the vision board- of me and my purpose was amazing. My highlight was the part where we discovered our purpose; and your balcony!
