Creating your future – a four part workshop

Carol Emerson

We are always creating our futures; most of us just aren’t always very intentional about it. This usually means that our dreams continually seem a bit out of reach and/or that the changes we get aren’t the ones we would most prefer! Remember the old adage, “If you keep doing the same things, you’ll keep getting the same results?” Well, it’s true.

This program has been designed to help you create the life you want and to achieve those dreams you may have kept on the back burner. It is a unique mix of ancient spiritual wisdom, modern psychology and project management principles.

The workshops will take place quarterly (according to the seasons) and you may attend any or all of them. Each workshop consists of four weekly two-hour sessions, which will include meditative visioning, discussion and sharing, attunement to the energies of the season, artistic expression and (sorry) tracking. Ideally you would want to take the series as each segment brings new information and helps sustain your momentum.

I. Clearing the Path October 6, 13, 20, 27 from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

The program begins in the fall, after the completion of harvest. This is the time of year when we count our blessings and “clear the fields” to prepare for winter. The primary work of this segment is to consider what we need to let go of in order to create space for change in our lives. We will also set a schedule for dedicating time and energy to this work to keep on track.

II. Envisioning the Future January 2015, dates tbd.

In this segment we will go inward to attune to our heart’s desire(s) and discern a vision of the year 2015. This time period, just after the winter solstice, is the ideal time to attune to the “light” that is re-emerging in the world and in our awareness. We will craft a collage filled with images, words and symbols of what we want to create in the upcoming months.

III. Engaging the Energies March 2015, dates tbd.

The equinox in March marks the return of longer days and the beginning of spring. In this session we will collaborate with nature’s resurgence to fuel our work. We learn how to harness the energy of the changing phases of the moon and look for ways to bring more newness and joy into our lives.

IV. Living the Dream June 2015, dates tbd.

Summer Solstice is the energetic high point of the year. In this segment we will review our work so far and accept the blessings that have come our way. We’ll also look at ways we can continue to live our true life, nurture ourselves and share our bounty with others. The sun and the full moon play prominent roles in the work of this segment as both represent fullness, completion and radiance.
