misc_none 6:00 PM  -  7:30 PM Create Your Life: Vision Board Workshop (Grades 5-12) Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:      natalie@marktwainlibrary.org
   

Most of us have fleeting ideas of what we want to be, do or have in our lives. But they remain just that: fleeting! Who has the time to get clear about what we want to create?

Everyone from Katy Perry to Oprah swears that they intentionally created outcomes by using a simple tool: Vision Boards. A Vision Board is a way to anchor your dreams and to allow the magic of manifestations to work in your life.

It’s about more than just slapping a picture onto a posterboard. It’s about getting clear on an authentic life, letting go of what’s in the way—and then clearly connecting with your dreams while designing a vision that calls to you.
