VISION BOARDS


CREATE THE VISION

VISION BOARDS


CREATE THE VISION

 

CREATE THE VISION

Explore what the future has in store.  Gain  clarity, confidence and commitment to the path you're taking by making a Vision Board.  

More like a vision quest than a goal-setting exercise, a Vision Board gives you the big picture; a large collage of beautiful and emotive images, providing a remarkable source of inspiration, guidance and serendipity in the month's ahead. 

Working at the subconscious level, the Vision Board is the bridge between your deepest desires and their manifestation.  The Vision Board is the  creative tool we use to awaken your right-brain and the power of the active imagination to explore such weighty questions as:

  • What should I be doing with  my life?
  • Where do I belong?
  • Where should I go?
  • What do I need to be happy and feel most authentic?
  • What is the path will deliver my greatest fulfilment?

VISION BOARD WORKSHOP

Being part of a group offline in a workshop is exponentially greater than making a vision board on your own on-line.   Why?

Working alone or chatting to a friend it's too easy to be distracted by the controlling left-brain, which either spoils the game by decides what your vision should look like and find pictures to represent it.   Or gets bored, declares the game over and your Vision Board is left unfinished.   

In a Vision Board Workshop its the role of the group leader to set up the ideal conditions for creativity and breakthrough, by-passing the left-brain gate-keeper to drop deeply into the realms of the super-conscious.  

AGENDA

  • Welcome, mingling and refreshments
  • Body-centred meditation to come to stillness
  • Creative warm-ups to awaken the intuition 
  • Oodles of time to choose images for your board
  • Gallery tour to appreciate the diversity of creativity

DATES

SPRING 2018

  • Saturday 17th March
  • Sunday 22nd April

SUMMER 2018

  • Sunday 20th May
  • Sunday 24th June
  • Sunday 15th July

The workshop runs from 10am - 2pm.

The workshops are usually held in different venues in Buckinghamshire.

The workshop leader is Mary Nondé - The Creativity Coach

The price is £125.  £65 for students and retired.  Includes expert facilitation, art materials and refreshments.  Plus pre-workshop clarification coaching call to clarify your intentions and best outcomes.

BOOKING

To book your place - or to ask any questions - please contact us below.   We'll send you the Booking form and a Welcome letter.  Thank you.

OTHER WORKSHOP OPTIONS

Not everyone can travel to south Buckinghamshire for the Vision Board Workshop, even though it's a string of beautiful towns along the River Thames.   Perhaps you'd prefer me to travel to you for a private workshop instead - and to include your partner.  Or commission a workshop for your peers, family and friends on your own turf. 

 The VIP Vision Board Workshop - one-to-one includes post-workshop Empowerment Coaching to unlock the wisdom of the Vision Board  

The Friendship Group Vision Board Workshop - gather a group of friends and take the creative journey together but make individual boards  

The Family Vision Board Workshop ensures everyone's needs are heard and the family rallied around a common cause by creating a vision board together

The Couple's Vision Board Workshop - the ideal way to ensure both needs are honoured while providing a focus for the life you're creating  together

The Corporate Vision Board Workshop works well as a team-away day to stimulate creativity and empower the individual while encouraging more engagement with the team and greater contribution to the organisation.

“I’ve participated in four of Mary’s Vision Board Workshops over the years and held one for my Company. The workshops provide a great space in which to reflect and explore what your future has in store."

FENG SHUI


LIVE THE VISION

FENG SHUI


LIVE THE VISION

 

LIVE THE VISION

Feng Shui is both the art and science of living mindfully.  It's  an ancient, universal practice that has as much validity today as it did thousands of years ago when  first documented. 

Once you've created your Vision Board, it's time to mindfully create the best, most nurturing environment for your vision to unfold. 

Feng Shui informs us how to make space for  new developments and to fabricate an environment aligned to success so you’re not pushing uphill to achieve your aspirations.

Just like acupuncture removes the blocks which impeded the free-flow of energy (chi) in the body, the act of rearranging your environment achieves the same and can transform your life.

Everyone under the same roof benefits whether they understand the methodology of Feng Shui or not.

CONSULTATION

During a Feng Shui consultation we assess the flow of life-force energy (chi) in the living and working space and how to harness it  more effectively to enhance the well-being, creativity and wealth of the home or enterprise.  The process includes:

  • Pre-consultation diagnostic - by telephone.  To understand the nature of the problem and to benchmark outcomes
  • On-site assessment - Feng Shui adjustments and enhancements are made in situ.  Further recommendations are given to be implemented later.
  • Post-visit - depending on the size of the task this includes a report and always any telephone clarification
  • Check and balance  - a follow-up visit monitor the results and to advise on next steps

FEES

The fee is determined by the size or the property and the scale of the project.  

Fees start at £350 for an initial home visit and rise to £1,970 for a 2-day visit.   Plus travel expenses. outside a 10-mile radius.

For a business or organisation a half-day project is £980, a full-day £1,700 and a 2-day task £3,500.   Plus travel expenses. outside a 10-mile radius.

Projects of day-long duration require overnight accommodation.

"Thank you for your detailed and informative Feng Shui report - and for sending it so promptly.  It was very useful to have before the staff meeting, and before our site progress meeting and the architect was really interested too. 

Your visit was timed perfectly to enable us to ‘tweak’ some of the materials we were using to more directly support the elemental aspects of the site.  It has also given us a good ‘steer’ for choosing the finishing touches to bring everything together. 

This process added another dimension to the whole building project, making it more meaningful – and somehow bringing it to ‘life’.  It has also raised our awareness to the energy of, and our intentions for, this new home for our ‘new’ business.

It felt like a very creative time we spent together, on site and in discussion before and after your visit, and I really appreciated your input.  It stimulated lots of ideas and took us in new directions too that I know will benefit the space. "

 
“Within days of taking Mary’s advice and making  easy yet significant changes to my relationship area in my home, I met the man of my dreams.   Having been single for 9 years, this feels more than a  coincidence,. The follow up emails with further insights were really appreciated. " 
Helen, Executive Coach, Bucks
 
“Mary’s skill in Feng Shui helped us to make quick, inexpensive but striking changes, which transformed our home from cool and unapproachable into warm and homely; a place people wanted to purchase.  We were overwhelmed with viewings and had a number of offers in quick succession.”
Nicola, Education Advisor, South Wales.

WHY A RETREAT

When too many plates are spinning it's hard to decide which ones to drop. 
Making time for yourself is both a rare luxury and a much needed necessity.  
SOUL ALIVE allows you to take a step back to reassess  your life through creativity, mindfulness and laughter.

You'll be part of a small, confidential group in a safe and nurturing environment.
Everything you need is taken care of, which leaves you free to focus on yourself and enjoy your new friends. 

A TIMELY ESCAPE

No telephone, no emails, no internet - unplug, switch off and open up for 7 whole days. 
Get out of the fray and enjoy some quality time in glorious sunshine for reflection Slow it down and take a break from technology, your job, the children, your partner Relax and explore some beautiful natural landscapes and soak up the local history and culture. Regroup from an uber-busy lifestyle and declutter a busy mind.

We have the exclusive use of Villa La Pena - a spacious and secluded luxurious property on the southern most tip of the Iberian peninsula. The retreat is fully inclusive with the exception of your return flights.

SOUL ALIVE takes you on a transformational journey.  Expertly-facilitated by Mary Nondé - The Creativity Coach - to create a safe container while group camaraderie provides you with support and encouragement.

SEVEN-DAY ESCAPE

If you've been operating at full throttle, the SOUL ALIVE RETREAT is the time to re-focus your attention inwards and listen to the wisdom of your heart.  This quiet voice can so easily get drowned out in a frantic outer world, yet it's the best barometer you have to gauge your well-being.   Each facilitated movement session, creative arts workshops and daily excursions  designed to awaken your creativity and build on previous discoveries.   

PREPARATION

The programme begins in advance of the Retreat to prepare you for the best outcome. The pre-Retreat telephone coaching to help you be mindfully aware of where you're starting from and your best outcomes. 

If you are able to attend the Vision Board Workshop before the Retreat that's advisable and start to build a bridge between your deepest desires and their manifestation.  If you've made a Vision Board before it doesn't matter because you'll discover what's alive in you presently that you might be ignoring.   You can also opt for post-Retreat coaching to consolidate your discoveries and integrate these insights into your daily life.

"I really enjoyed my time away and appreciated the amount of effort and time Mary gave us.  I came back with a more decisive attitude and I can now see the direction my life is taking.  I'm no longer afraid of what's to come, which had left me in a state of inertia prior.  Mary gave of herself 100%.  She helped me to feel as free as a bird at times and allowed me to tap into the creative side I didn't even know I had.  I was very grateful."
