Enjoy an inspirational vision boarding workshop day with Ali and Finn from The Positive Planner, that will leave you feeling uplifted, focused and excited about your future.

Your day of vision boarding, writing and crafting is the perfect way to bring mental clarity to your goals, wants, desires and needs.

This workshop is about allowing yourself the space and time to really focus on what makes your soul happy. Maybe you have a life long ambition to do something but have never known where to begin? Perhaps you want to shake things up and take your life in a new direction? Could it be your house is in need of a re-vamp? Or are you desperate for a holiday but have no idea what you really desire from some time away? Is 2019 is the year you take the plunge and set up your own business, make “that” move or write your first book? If you relate to any or all of these then a vision boarding workshop will be the perfect opportunity to spend a day focusing on you.

You will be gently eased in to the workshop with a supportive guided visualisation exercise to ground and centre you, leading calmly into the vision boarding process. Prompts and ideas of questions will be shared to help you tap into your true authentic self.

Once your board is complete you will begin the embroidery element of the workshop… You will be asked to think of a word that best describes your board as a way of cementing the meaning and intentions in your mind.

By the end of the day you should have a set positive goals which will be the framework to support you to take the small day by day steps to realise your bigger vision.

The workshop includes a light lunch, drinks and snacks throughout the day and a copy of the Positive Planner or Positive Bullet Diary (value £23/£24) to take away with you.
