Vision Boards for 2017

Saturday, January 7th
10am to 4pm
For Goodness Sake, Truckee

Creating yearly vision boards is a very powerful tool. The idea is to surround yourself with images of what you hope to achieve and what you want to become in 2017. By invoking these images into our sensory experiences, life will engage with us to manifest our ideas. Come focus your dreams into reality!


  • No experience necessary
  • All materials provided
  • Bring a potluck dish to share
  • Pre-registration required

Facilitator: Susie Alexader
Suggested donation: $10-$25

"My personal experience with making vision boards has been energetically compelling. The results are almost supernatural and I am constantly blown away by the power of focus."

"The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them"

by Brooke Bishop

“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.”
