throw your dog a bone:
quieting the critic, waking the dreamer
What if you could distract your inner critic from dissing and dogging your dreams? How would it feel to give yourself a respite from the needling negativity?
Coming Out of Quarantine
Now that the world is no longer in lockdown mode, what long-held dreams might you dust off:
swimming with the dolphins in Maui
moving to Paris for a year with your partner to reignite the magic
investing in the future: stop renting and buy the home of your dreams
starting to paint with watercolors in retirement
taking a Caribbean cooking class and learn how to make Jamaican Jerk Chicken
writing the science fiction novel you've been meaning to write for a decade
joining Toastmasters so you can give an amazing toast at your niece’s wedding in the spring
buying a second-hand RV and drive cross county via the Blue Highways
What We’ll Do
First, I will guide you through a process of generating your list of big dreams. Then, through a series of engaging and focused exercises, you will quickly drop into an expanded and creative mindset. The exercises, in essence, are the bone you will throw your inner critic. The exercises keep the critic busy while, subliminally, your more undaunted self does the deeper work of clearing the way to envisioning a more fulfilled and purposeful life. The exercises are the gateway that will ultimately allow you to:
intuitively create from the moment
experiment with free association
write from the senses and the magic of memory
access your intuition and imagination boldly
What You’ll Get
Humming with the sense of your own innate potency and potential elicited by the spontaneity of the exercises, you will then return to your dream list. Channeling your newfound clarity and creativity you will envision an action plan for one of your dreams that you can easily and purposefully execute.
Who Is this Workshop For?
