“Creating my positive self” Workshop |1pm, Zoom
Can a magazine/newspaper create a life change? This is the question we will try to answer by participating in this workshop.
Images born emotions, emotions expressed by words, words can create a new pattern of thinking, a new pattern of living. Positive words can create a meaningful and fulfilling living.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring out our creativity and our imagination in order to create a unique visual board of our “positive” self and our “dream” life. This board will be used as a new perspective of thinking and manifesting of what we want to achieve in our lives.
The workshop will be divided into two parts. The first part will include the creation of a unique visual board using pictures of magazines, newspaper, scissors, A4 Paper which the participant will choose according to his interests, his needs and his life expectations for a positive future. The second part will include a short creative writing activity based on the visual boards that we will make in the first part.
The whole process will be like a journey of creating a new positive pattern of thinking and action based on the pictures the participants will choose as the medium for a positive change they want to bring into their lives.
