In case you have trouble reading the questions, I'm listing them here:
1. What makes you happy?….. in 5 words or less….?
2. What is your favourite movie, book or both?
3. Which talent would you most like to have?
4. Which words or phrases do you overuse most?
5. If you could go anywhere in the world for a creative retreat where might it be?
I love the possibilities this type of exercise has. It's another way of manifesting dreams, of bringing new experiences into your life consciously. I've never done this with creative imagery other than a dream board using magazine pictures, but I have had experience with writing out how I would like my future to evolve through journaling. I've been amazed at the synchronicity of outcomes. These types of exercises are really quite powerful.
Please pardon my expletive, but I'm afraid I do use them in the privacy of my car and home to let off steam and frustration.
Question 4 was particularly difficult for me because I am a bibliophile and movie watcher. It's almost impossible to choose a favorite. I love to learn, so whatever my current immersion is I will have stacks of books on the subject: writing, marketing, InDesign, Photoshop, personal growth, and more. I spend an inordinate number of hours watching movies. I love movies that focus on the underdog-makes-good and relationship reconciliation. Marilyn, one of my classmates, mentioned several other movies I really love here.
And question 5 was hard to nail down because there are lots of places I'd like to visit, but I went to Vancouver Island about 10 years ago and really loved it there. I think it would be a fabulous place to have a creative retreat.
Thanks Kim and Xanthe for all that you packed into this course.
