Individuals will self-select photographs that feel meaningful to them and explore their story through the photographs and creative tools provided. This will be a very experiential workshop and a container for sharing, openness, empathy, vulnerability, and strength in shared storytelling. You will develop deeper connections and relationships. They are exploring what gives you strength or holds you back today. Experience the power of Points Of You experiential tools. Come with an open mind and an open heart. Be prepared to put coaching skills to good use in cultivating trust and safety, listening actively, and maintaining presence to evoke new awareness in self and others.
This program will focus heavily on two parts of our well-being practices in a changing and challenging world and making connections with empathy. This workshop connects head and heart and gut through the use of intuitive music and photography to unlock perspectives in self and others that so easily remain hidden and support empowerment and positive self-image and self-talk. It will be a safe space to share and explore as much, or as little is comfortable for each individual. Full participation is not mandatory but invited. Individuals would benefit just by being present.
A cornerstone of the Points of You® method is the interaction between the right brain, the intuitive and emotional half of the brain, and the left brain focused on logic and analysis. This occurs when we look at a photograph and a word simultaneously or listen to music in stillness.
