Create a vision map — a collage of images and words — to reflect your goals, intentions, feelings and dreams to lead you into the new season. Participants will learn the significance of creating vision maps and the steps involved in visioning. Basic materials will be supplied; participants are invited to bring magazines, images and art supplies if they desire. You’ll have fun cutting and pasting, and you’ll go home with a fresh vision board to guide and inspire you through the coming months.

Suggested Materials: A photo or image representing the participant to be included in the collage.
