1. HALF DAY SEMINAR: Brainstorm Party: Achieving Your Heart's Desire (Which May Have Seemed Impossible).

This is a group participation effort based on Barbara Sher's book, Wishcraft. Bring to the party the idea of the thing you most want to HAVE, DO or BE. Each person will have the brainstorming support of the rest of the group and come away with an achievable plan or step to take. Nothing is impossible. By the end of the party everyone should come away with a do-able plan or resource or contact for making their heart's desire a reality.

Here's how it works. Let's say Linda's heart's desire is to take 6 month sabbatical from work to write a cookbook, but doesn't have a quiet place to write, can't afford to pay rent while she's not working, and doesn't have an equipped kitchen where she can test recipes. My heart's desire is to have someone to cook delicious meals for me that are nutritious so I don't have to cook and can feel pampered every day. I have an extra bedroom with access to office equipment I can offer Linda in exchange for being her food "guinea pig." Nancy's a fan of Norm Abrams (The New Yankee Workshop on PBS) and wants to learn simple woodworking and carpentry as her next career, but needs to continue working full-time as nurse which she dislikes just to have an income. Linda remembers that her Uncle Joe is thinking of closing down his hand made furniture business because he wants to retire and has no sons who want to carry on his work. Linda will ask her uncle to offer Nancy an opportunity to be an unpaid apprentice in his shop on weekends, and perhaps one day Nancy will take over Joe's workshop, allowing Joe to feel that he has left a legacy behind. And so it goes for each of the 12 people in the room. Be a part of this exciting, sharing experience where each person receives from the group. (Coffee, tea and cookies will be served.)

Facilitator: Creative thinker, Andrea Reynolds, has achieved many of her dreams simply by deciding, seeking, and asking: study at Oxford University, travel throughout South America, living at the posh Sutton Place Hotel, starting a publishing company to publish books, working with millionaire clients, negotiating a contract for Margaret Atwood, being interviewed by Sir David Frost, living in London, England, living in Toronto, Canada, being recognized as an expert in the national press and press, finding her long-lost brother, owning her own Bed and Breakfast business, etc. Now she wants to help you achieve your dreams.
