Abundance Box Workshop!

Intentional Desires: An Abundance Box Workshop
Facilitated by Courtney Putnam, MFA, LMP, CRP

Date: Winter Solstice 2007 (Saturday, December 22)
Time: 3:00-6:00pm
Location: Rising Bird Healing Arts

Abundance [n]: great amount or supply; bounty, fortune, plentitude, prosperity, thriving

What do you want in your life? Better health? A terrific job? Creative energy? Strong relationships? Financial security?

Join me for an afternoon of envisioning your own abundance. In this hands-on workshop, you will explore your dreams and goals and create an abundance box as a visual representation of what you wish to manifest in your life. This is a time for thinking big, pulling your ingenious ideas out of the cobwebs of your mind, and giving life to your desires!

The purpose of an abundance box is to channel your intentions, goals, and visions into a symbolic artifact. Inside this box you will place small objects that characterize the things you wish to actualize. Think about what aspect of your life you would like to give a little positive intention. Are there goals and dreams you are ready to make real?

In this workshop you will create your very own abundance box and fill it with objects that represent what you hope to bring to life. We will also explore some principles of Feng Shui, which may enhance or inform the intention and placement of your box. Using a Feng Shui bagua (map) as your guide, you will determine where your box is best placed in your own home.

You bring (if you wish): Any significant images, symbols, or objects with which to 1) decorate your box, and to 2) place inside your box. I provide: Boxes of varying shapes and sizes, art supplies, collage supplies and decorative papers. Tea and light snacks will be provided.

Courtney, did you get my email about the henna workshop, too? Wanted to let you know -- and anyone who might come to the henna workshop via you -- that we are offering discount registration for $25/person... if that makes sense? Anyway, I'm checking in with Hawk know about your Dec 22nd class. I'd love to take it, but Winter Solstice is his birthday, so not sure what he is visioning for the day. But an Abundance Box sounds dreamy!!
