I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last wrote! It’s high time I let you all know what I’m up to…
Chris and I sat down with our trusted (and delightfully crazy) friends and engaged in some fairly wild conversation and some actually productive brainstorming. Since then we have been mulling over all the ideas generated by our mini think tank and have been working on putting them into action.
Here are a few of the ideas floating around:
- We’ve talked a lot about how to start with a smaller group, so that those of you who are interested don’t lose out if we are unable to gather a large enough group who can all meet at the same time! While Chris’s expertise is working with teams and he’s brilliant at getting the most out of group energy, my background actually includes a lot of small groups, so we are combining forces.
- In the future we are looking to create an online program so that our community isn’t limited by their ability to commute to Winona.
- We have been revisiting Chris’s vision for Dream Sessions, which was creating a program that organizations could offer their employees. For those of you who don’t know Chris very well, one of his passions is creating healthy working environments.
- There was consensus that the name Dream Sessions is confusing. So you’ll see some rebranding in the future.
Chris and I have also been talking about how individual needs are different. Some of us are looking for meaning in our lives. Maybe we were so busy living the lives we were supposed to that we never considered the importance of living the lives we wanted. Or perhaps our dreams have changed and in this new stage of life we need to rediscover ourselves. Some of us have started along our path of dreams and are now feeling stuck. Maybe this is because we tried as hard as we could and are now discouraged, or maybe it’s because we have made several false starts and we are losing faith in ourselves.
While these are normal parts of the dream realization process, it can be very helpful to have support getting through it. Some of us are moving and shaking and are simply looking for a community of fellow dreamers. People who “get it” and people who can help brainstorm on next steps and connections.
Our first step is to connect with all of you who are interested in this kind of resource. If this is you please reach out! Hit us up with comments, and private messages. Let us know why you’re interested in group coaching. Do you prefer to meet in person, or would an interactive online program suit you better?
If you live in the Winona area and want to start right away please fill out this survey and let us know when you can meet.
