"Self-Empowerment" Collage Workshop with Dee Gray - Saturday, July 17th
"Self-Empowerment" Collage Workshop
Instructor: Dee Gray
When: Saturday, July 17th
Class Fee: $110
This workshop is based on the premise that our thoughts and beliefs create the conditions of our life. To bring about changes in those beliefs and any subsequent changes in our life requires that we first become aware of, and then have an understanding of, the actions needed to bring about changes associated to those beliefs.
Most beliefs are learned behavior and they most often reside in the subconscious. We are usually made aware of them when they manifest in our life through experience, both good and bad. Although it can be enlightening or discouraging, it need not ever be in vain. Tapping into that self awareness, provoking new avenues of thought through visual association and creative expression can be an incredibly effective way to provoke change. We hope this Self-Empowerment collage workshop becomes an avenue for you to consciously create more of what you desire in your life.
WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES: To achieve greater awareness of ones’ core beliefs while opening a creative door and crafting new beliefs in support of those currently held and by adding or modifying that belief structure in a more positive way.
You will tap into your highest potential for creativity and positive change in your life as you experience the power of a healing art that you can reflect on each time you see what you have created.
