“Gratitude is the single most important ingredient
to living a successful fulfilled life.

A further sneak peak into a Life Enhancement Coaching/The Desire Map Workshop

Meaning & Connections

The opening/introduction of the workshop and the creating of the altar,  all form part of Block 1 of the Life Design 101 featuring The Desire Map Workshop. This was covered in the previous blog.  In this week’s blog, we take a sneak peak into Block 2 and specifically, Meaning & Connections.

Having kicked off our shoes in Block 1, we now begin to feel the raw earth beneath our feet, metaphorically speaking, as we move into Meaning and Connections – Block 2.

Meaning and Connections – begins with a brief ‘limbering up’  or ‘warming up’ session to support attendees in tapping a little deeper into their feelings – specifically moving from the head into the heart. 

From warming up to digging deep –  this session will focus on exploring where each of the attendees is – in terms of gratitude and dissatisfaction – in major life areas.

The 5 key life areas considered, being –

-Livelihood & Lifestyle
-Relationships & Society
-Body & Wellness
_Essence & Spirituality
-Creativity & Learning

This session will involve group work and some solo work in the The Desire Map workbook.  (The workbook is provided to attendees at the beginning of the workshop).

 There is no feedback or commentary on anything shared in this session.
Anything shared is to be witnessed only.
There is no critiquing and there is no judgement.

Following the solo work, attendees will return to the group.  There will then be some discussion and sharing. Attendees are encouraged to share with the group, but sharing is optional.

The aim of this segment of the workshop, is to stir up feelings to get clarity about attendees’ desires.  Getting clear on what we don’t want (through working on dissatisfaction) often can assist attendees in knowing what they do want.

There is a strong focus on appreciation, during this workshop segment.

As we discuss appreciation, Clare, as the workshop facilitator, will  also  present an additional segment on gratitude.  This will include how the practice of gratitude can bring about significant positive changes to daily life.  The aim is to support attendees moving on beyond the workshop.

Upon completion of Meaning and Connections, there is a short break before we embark upon Discovery, being Block 3.
