2014 is coming.
And with that comes the opportunity to welcome it in an intentional way and to get really clear about what it is you want from the year.
I start my new year with three vital intention setting exercises.
First, I choose a word for the new year.
Then, I make a vision board (or two– sometimes I do separate ones for my professional and personal lives).
Finally, I write a wellness prescription with all the ways that I want to take care of myself over the course of the year.
These three practices come about after some very thoughtful, guided reflection.
Because these rituals have so impacted my life, several years ago, I launched visionSPARK: because intention matters, a new year workshop that invites participants to dream about their new year and set their intentions together with gentle and supportive guidance and fun creative claiming.
So not only is 2014 coming but so is visionSPARK!
Last year, my two visionSPARK workshops sold out and so this year I’ve added two additional options: a third date (an evening for those who can’t miss work and want to preserve their weekend time) and a virtual date.
And I want you to join me.
visionSPARK:: because intention matters
Every new year begins with our vision for it. But dreaming about it isn’t enough.
Vision has to be captured, inspiration alighted, and intention set.
At visionSPARK, you’ll capture your ideal life’s vision not just in conversation and words but in a tangible, inspirational vision board. You’ll imagine the possibilities in a pre-workshop workbook, gather inspiration, and then create your vision with thoughtful support during the workshop. You’ll leave with an inspirational board to display, a touchstone word to root you and reinforce your commitment during the year, a gentle call to action to guide you and the motivation to manifest the life you imagine.
What do past participants have to say about visionSPARK?
Driving to the VisionSPARK workshop on a cold, sunny morning, I noticed that frost covered everything on both sides of the road. I felt similarly frozen — my goals, creativity, and my ability to enjoy the good things in my life were at a standstill. Rosie’s welcoming presence, her insistence that we all deserved to and could live up to our full potential, and the support of the other participants, were the encouragement I needed to start moving forward again. We talked about ways we could be more intentional in the new year and chose words and images to guide us. Rosie shows you how to open your mind and heart to the possibilities of your own life. In a few short hours, we learned how to identify, then neutralize, the fear and negativity that stood between us and our desires. The “vision board” I made that day continues to inspire me like a friend would, reminding me that everything I want to do is within reach. Thanks to VisionSPARK, I’ve been more creative, more willing to step out of my comfort zone, and kinder to myself in general. Signing up for one of Rosie’s workshops is one of the best gifts you can give yourself! ~Lisa Rubenson
Vision Spark was a wonderful opportunity for me to take time to focus on what I wanted and needed for the upcoming year. Having time away from daily tasks was especially helpful, because I can’t ever seem to find the time or motivation to do self-reflection at home — this forced me to do it! I also enjoyed the opportunity to hear other women’s experiences and struggles and find encouragement. Rosie is incredibly kind and wise and insightful, and really helped keep us open to new ideas but also on task. Her blog is a daily source of wonder!
Rosie is gentle and engaging and her guidance and questions were thought provoking. The length of the class was just right. The setting was WONDERFUL. I walked away with a good start to approaching the rest of the year.
I attended Rosie’s VisionSPARK 2012 workshop with the hopes of setting some clearer work goals for myself. Those hopes were met and far surpassed. Just by spending time with Rosie I felt smarter, more grounded, and more capable. One of her coolest gifts is the ability to listen to women and extract the truth about what they are feeling. I think this has something to do with her amazing insight and incredible vocabulary. My intention for 2012 was to write a book but I was blocked. Three hours at VisionSPARK and the next day I had a title and complete outline. I’ve been cruising ever since. Rosie is like a modern day shaman and midwife; she sees your best potential and then helps you deliver it to the world. ~Michelle Icard
The vision spark workshop was amazing. I had never done something like this so I was really not sure what to expect. I have already signed up for the next TWO. For me, Rosie provided a fun, creative, inspiring, safe environment to explore. All the women shared and offered help and advice. I am so glad I just took the plunge and signed up. ~Colleen
A new friend posted the opportunity to participate in Rosie’s 2012 Vision Spark Workshop. I was drawn to the idea of making a commitment to myself. Not a New Years Resolution; but a challenge. One that required taking stock of my strengths. In this workshop I was able to focus not only on myself, but at the same time recognize and appreciate the unique talents of each person. That VISION was built on Rosie’s ability to SPARK living with purpose. ~Mary Rose Taylor
