Make a Dream Incubator! THIS SUNDAY 8th JUNE

Hatch your plans and ideas on this inspiring one day workshop from The Flying Club:
SUNDAY 8th JUNE. 10:30 – 5pm 

BLACK BOX – Make an ‘Incubator for your Hopes and Dreams
and work with creative visualization to use it effectively.
£55. Simple lunch provided
box3
Some of you may be familiar with Vision Boards or Dream Boards as valuable visualization tools.

A Dream Incubator is that – and more – in fabulous 3D, conveniently inside a box!
Drawing inspiration from shrines, paper art and shadow boxes you will create a magical personal world inside a box. (Cardboard boxes will be provided, bring a tin, little suitcase, wooden treasure box or cigar box if you prefer).

When open the dream incubator becomes a physical focus for your hopes and dreams, a tangible representation of where you are going, a vision board/shrine, inspiring you to pay attention to your intentions and visualize your dreams into actions.

When closed it will continue to incubate your highest visions, powered by the magic of positive imagination and laws of attraction.

During the day in my beautiful studio you will:
*Identify an intention for your Incubator – you may have a clear goal in mind, or a theme, or want to be open and allow inspiration to come through the objects and images you use.
*Decorate the inside of the box with found images, drawings and symbolic objects, fairy lights will be provided to illuminate your vision! (visit my Pinterest page for some inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/xgristx/box-worlds/ )
*Enjoy a delicious soup + salad lunch (please inform me of any special dietary requirements)
*Write personal affirmations to visualize your dreams into reality
*Kick-start your creativity and have fun!

All aboard for FLYING SOUP 3 – Thurs 27th Feb.

hostesses

I’m looking forward to welcoming you all aboard again for
FLYING SOUP 3, this Thursday 27th March, 7 – 9pm

Session 3 – CHECK IN
In this session we battle through some turbulence – as we look back over sessions 1 and 2 and think:
‘That’s all very well but …’
We will examine our dreams and ideas and why it is maybe completely and utterly impossible,
RIDICULOUS even for us to actually really consider doing anything about them  – EVER!
The plane will probably nosedive, oxygen masks will almost certainly drop from above our heads, however we are in the safe hands of an experienced Pilot, there are efficient Stewardesses on board to keep the atmosphere calm (and administer warmth, humour and Gin as required)

We will certainly make it through the clouds and emerge safely into clear blue skies, ready for adventure, not a drop of soup spilt!

Can’t wait!

(This course of FLYING SOUP is now FULL.
If you didn’t make it on board this one, please get in touch via the FLYING SOUP HOW TO BOOK PAGE to be added to the waiting list for future flights x)

CATCH-UP and join FLYING SOUP 2 – Thurs 27th Feb.

If you missed the first FLYING SOUP and would like to join us for
FLYING SOUP 2, next Thursday 27th Feb, 7 – 9pm
You can still catch up. (More about FLYING SOUP HERE!)

Here are some notes from Session 1:

FLYING SOUP FEB 2014 SESSION 1 Catch-up notes.
The Flying Club is about reconnecting us with our joy and creativity.

It is a gentle process that reminds and kindly provokes us to be our best selves, to get out of our own way, be VERY nice to ourselves and begin to value and honour our ideas, hopes and dreams.

Session 1 was about checking our navigations systems and having a think about about where we might want to go.

The following exercises are best done FAST to avoid the temptation to over-think them. There are no right or wrong answers, often the seemingly small or silly answers hold potency and insights.

1. IT MATTERS
a.
Starting with the words ‘It matters to me that ….’, write a list 20 things that matter to you.
From your personal ethics to sock-drawer management, don’t edit anything out. They can be things you already have or do, as well as items, qualities, feeling that you’d like more of.
(NB. In ALL Flying Club exercises we take it as given that other people and the rest of the world are all alright  – we want to hear about YOU).

b. Write another list of 20 ‘It matters to me that ….’s

c. Write 20 x ‘It doesn’t matter to me AT ALL that ….’s

Now look at the ‘It doesn’t matter’ list and check for worthiness , for example I could have written:
‘It doesn’t matter to me at all that I don’t have a guitar-shaped swimming pool’.
If, when I read it back I feel that actually it really does matter and I won’t feel complete + successful until I do own one – I’ll move that item up into the ‘it matters’ list!

Then double check the ‘It matters’ lists too for worthiness, ‘shoulds’ and ‘oughts’ and move any offenders down to ‘It doesn’t matter’ list or edit them out.

Everything you write in the Flying Soup sessions is confidential and you won’t be asked to share anything you don’t want to.

d. Choose 3 from each list that jump out for you and highlight them. Notice any that have have a special resonance.

e. Write:
IT MATTERS HOW I FEEL.
I MATTER.
Write it big + beautiful.

These lists are non-negotiable navigational tools. They matter to you. You chose them. Believe yourself and honour them.

2. Brochure Photo.
Take an imaginary snap-shot of yourself in the future feeling fantastic, relaxed and contented. Everything has worked out spectacularly well …

a. Describe the physical place (you don’t have to know where it is and you don’t have to worry about the practicalities of you being there!)
… write what it smells like, tastes like, what colour, feel, sounds, look, weather breeze … as much minute detail as possible.

b. Describe yourself in this photo, how you feel, look, sound, smell …

Enjoy yourself!
Please bring your notes to FLYING SOUP on Thursday 27th Feb, 7 – 9pm.

Looking forward to flying with you.

Flying Soup – Flying again this Thursday 28th Feb!

If you think:
It’s too late
I can’t afford the life I really want
I don’t have time
I should be grateful for what I’ve got, not ask for more
It’s too selfish
I’m too fat/thin/daft/sensible/old/young
(or any other limiting thoughts) …
Then this journey is for you

Isobel will help you to explore, define and expand your ideas and bring clarity to your aims. You are invited to kick old habits and discover new creative approaches.FLYINGsoup2013

The second session of FLYING SOUP (Thursday 28th Feb 2013) will deal with ‘oughts’ – how to tame or banish them … and we will also consider ‘what if it all goes horribly RIGHT!’ …

Discover techniques for minimizing ‘ought to’ and maximize ‘LOVE TO!’
Explore fantastic possible outcomes for your ideas and see what happens when you do.

FLYING SOUP is a monthly event at Bom-Banes, Brighton.
It is adapted from The Flying Club creative coaching program.
Each individual session will cover an aspect from The Flying Club program and will work in its own right.

See you there x
