An evening of visioning at Art on the Brix

Art on the Brix - Take the wheel of your life

Tuesday night, September 1st, Art on the Brix will host An Evening of Visioning: Be the Captain of your Ship

Join local life coach Michele Chaisson and myself, Alyssa Graves, for an evening away from the kiddos or other normal daily routines to devote some relaxed time envisioning the life we dream for ourselves. As a group, we’ll begin with an exercise to help us identify and discuss our values while we gather images and objects that represent what we want to manifest in our lives. When we surround ourselves with visual reminders that spark joy, our lives are more likely to match those portrayals of what bring us happiness and fulfillment.

We will provide all materials (including fun decorative elements), light snacks, one glass of wine/beer, and personal guidance to envision and create the best representation of your unique hopes and goals.

Call for more details about this process. No experience necessary. After you register, look for an email with more information about what to expect and how to prepare.
