What is a dreamboard?

A dreamboard, also called a “vision board”, is a collage of images that are meant to creatively visualize and connect you to your life goals. Some people like creating digital versions of their dreamboards, but we recommend the “analog” cut-and-paste version to allow serendipity to fully work its magic into the process.

 

What exactly is a “Dreamboarding” workshop?

“Dreamboarding” is a three-hour creativity session where participants will be asked to take part in a visualization exercise, make their own dreamboards, and process the contents of their dreamboards to better understand their goals, priorities, and motivations. There are no right or wrong answers, and nobody will be forced to share details that they wish to keep to themselves.

 

Is the “Dreamboarding” workshop only for writers?

The “Dreamboarding” workshop is open to writers and non-writers alike, both young and old. Even teenagers may attend the event!

 

How I can benefit from the activity?

At the very least, making a dreamboard can help you visualize your goals. (And what you can visualize, you can more easily achieve!) On a deeper level, the regular practice of dreamboarding can help you better see underlying patterns in your life, understand your priorities and motivations, and be more inspired to take charge of your own future.

A New Year, A New Way of Goal-Setting Through Dreamboarding

It’s typical to start another year with a new set of resolutions, but have you tried creating your own dreamboard?

Dreamboarding is a more creative way to visualize what you want to happen in your life. By making your own dreamboard through crafting a collage of images that resonate with you, you will better understand your goals, priorities, and motivations. Isn’t that a more fun way to begin 2013?

Instead of making another list of resolutions, sign-up for the “Dreamboarding” session of Writer’s Block Philippines (WBP) on February 23, 2013 (Saturday), 1:00 to 4:00 pm at COWO Coworking Asia, G/F Suntree Building, 27 Sapphire Road, Ortigas, Pasig. This event is open to writers and non-writers alike, and even teenagers may join in on the fun.

Ana Santos, one of the founders of WBP, says, “Some people like creating digital versions of their dreamboards, but we recommend the ‘analog’ cut-and-paste version to allow serendipity to fully work its magic into the process.”

Participants will be given enough time to produce their own dreamboards during the event. “Although the dreamboard is something personal since you’ll be pouring your hopes and dreams there, nobody will be forced to share details that they wish to keep to themselves,” reveals Nikka Sarthou-Lainez, another WBP co-founder.  Aside from visualizing your goals, the regular practice of dreamboarding can help you better understand your priorities and motivations, as well as inspire you to take charge of your own future.

According to WBP co-founder, Niña Terol-Zialcita, “Like any other workshop that you may have already attended, the Dreamboarding workshop will only be as effective as you make it. You get what you put into it. That said, the main ingredients for “success” in this workshop are: an open mind and an attitude of genuine learning and sharing.”

Start the year right in 2013 and register early. The fee is P1,300, inclusive of food and workshop materials.
