This is a year long program based on DeAnna Radaj's first book, Designing the Life of Your Dreams from the Outside In. In this course, she takes you through HOW to set goals & intentions to help you design/create the life that YOU dream of & the steps on how to implement the desired changes into your space/environment. Through Integrative Lifestyle Design principles, DeAnna takes you through the creation of a Vision Board & clutter-busting to explaining HOW your environment affects your health (mental, physical & emotional), relationships & goal achievement. Did you know that WHERE your stuff accumulates can show where you are blocked in your life? It does!
So...join us on this year journey to designing the life you dream of or pick a module or 2 (or 3...or 4!) to get started. Make time for you on the FIRST SATURDAY of the month from 9:30a-11a. Coffee & breakfast will be served.
Cost for the ENTIRE 12 modules: $249.00 Cost for SINGLE modules: $25.00

We will also look at how to create a personal altar (a 3d vision board if you will), how they've been used in a historical context & the importance of each in everyday life. Then offer tips on how you can use what you’ve learned and figure out how to create your own altars-placement, color and accessories-that will maximize whatever Life Area you’d like to work on (activate) by what you’ve learned about Feng Shui!
November: Gratitude & Forgiveness-Focusing on the Family Life Area
As we get into the height of holiday celebrations & the innundation of Norman Rockwell pictures of family bliss, many of us start to feel guilt, shame or depression at the thought of family get-togethers due to their family "not measuring up" to what society states your family SHOULD be like or how you SHOULD be celebrating the holiday. In this workshop we will focus on the Family Life Area & how to create a harmonious space (living room, family room & dining room through color, space-planning, element & personal symbols (ex: what picture frame is perfect for family photos)
