The life stage of adults is typically a period of responsibility, financial concern, mundane work and a consciousness of survival. Most adults have put their personal dreams on hold, have forgotten about them or have never known what they are.
Women often have added responsibility of family and children and place themselves last in line to do what they truly wish to do.
The way we think our lives should look and be, is dictated by social conditioning rather than a sense of inner purpose. The way others have told us since childhood life what our lives should be like has shaped our world. Due to the nature of this people, often striving to be what society dictates rather than connecting with themselves and who they truly are. This causes stress, fear, anxiety and disconnect within themselves and in turn can creates people who are unhappy and filled with fears.
The workshop objective is to encourage people to explore the following through the utilisation of the Freeing Freddie the Dream Weaver.
The aim of the workshop is to guide people to assess, let go of their fears and create their true dream. This will assist them in the formation of their own concept of self and connect them with their passion and purpose in life. By doing so, they are able to find greater meaning in life when they connect to their aspirations and dreams. Releasing their fears allows the potential to create dreams
We address these questions -
-What is fear and how to deal with it?
-What are my personal fears? And where do they come from?
- How can I overcome my fears?
-What is my dream for this life?
-How to create my dream life?
-The qualities one needs for the creation of dreams and how to develop them.
-How can I take a step closer to realising my dreams and aspirations?
