Blueprint Board Workshop

"The questions you asked before blueprinting were so helpful in prompting my thinking about the habits that are holding me back and the ones I want to start! I came unsure of what my goal would be, but was totally prepared by the time we started on the blueprints."
"I loved blueprint making with Saya! Before beginning the blueprint, Saya asked a bunch of rapid fire, easy-to-answer questions. While writing out my answers so quickly that I couldn’t filter or judge them, I got some unexpected and much-needed clarity. In doing that work, I was able to unlock something that’s been stuck for far too long."
"This was a wonderful way to launch (the year)! The Blueprint workshop is a Visionboard workshop, but with the plan to get there. It was a comfortable space with a lovely group of at least 20 people who hadn't met before today. Saya led the workshop with skill, humor, and empathy."
"I love feeling connected to you and that workshop and wanted to let you know that it was an (sorry to shout) EXTRAORDINARILY MEANINGFUL experience for me. I have stayed true to my blueprint and it remains a touchstone. I have fulfilled all of my goals--can you believe this?"
"I’ve taken a few of Saya’s seminars and like the others, this one did not disappoint. I love listening to Saya- she’s motivating, funny and inspiring. At the end of class I walked out with a goal setting plan and a positive energy."

This is a virtual offering.

There’s something magical that happens when you communicate your ideal life and even before that, when you’re able to actually pinpoint what your ideal life looks like. Sometimes figuring out what you want is the primary challenge and what needs to occur before figuring out steps to attain that life. It’s much easier to work towards something when you know what that something is.

With that in mind, you’re led through a variety of wheels-turning activities to shift your perspective, get you thinking about things you’ve never thought about, and break down huge, overwhelming, where do I start?! goals into realistic and doable steps. You start with a blank canvas and fill it up with visual representations of how you’ll get where you want to be. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. Romantically. Physically. Financially. Mentally. Whatever-ally. This isn’t about dreams of what you want, this is about attainment of what you want.

Worried that you don’t know where you want to go let alone how you’ll get there? Don’t be. Your facilitator Saya, aka Accessible Oprah, is a dreamboat at getting you to foreign, scary, hidden places. She’s just the right blend of comfort and challenge, of letting you be and nudging.

Craft a Blueprint Board with yummy items like glue sticks, magazines, and stickers, then share your path and hear where others are headed. An inspiring, hands-on experience to embrace Future You with a warm hug and sense of purpose and direction. Working on ourselves amongst others working on themselves is all sorts of wonderful.
