Event Overview

Note that there is a virtual and an in person offering of this; make sure you select the one you want! This is the in person one.

It’s not a Vision Board. It’s not a Dream Board. It’s not a Goal Board. It’s a Blueprint Board.

"I loved blueprint making with Saya! Before beginning the blueprint, Saya asked a bunch of rapid fire, easy-to-answer questions. While writing out my answers so quickly that I couldn’t filter or judge them, I got some unexpected and much-needed clarity. In doing that work, I was able to unlock something that’s been stuck for far too long."

"This was a wonderful way to launch (the year)! The Blueprint workshop is a vision board workshop, but with the plan to get there. Saya led the workshop with skill, humor, and empathy."

 "I love listening to Saya- she’s motivating, funny and inspiring. At the end of class I walked out with a goal setting plan and a positive energy.”



  • whole group wheels turning activities

  • individual blueprint board creation — we’ll listen to tunes as you reflect, cut, tape, color

  • whole group shares, steals, and inspiration to act

All materials are included. There will be a communal table where you can give and take. But it’s ok if you just take.



  • your comfiest outfit, your makeup-less face, your hot mess hair

  • slippers/cozy socks – we’ll all be going shoeless


  • any favorite school supplies or arts & crafts supplies — pens, markers, stickers, craft paper, paper cutters, etc.

  • magazines — use this as an excuse to get rid of all those old magazines piling up at home

  • any snacks or drinks you’d like for yourself or to share; indulging is encouraged

  • Notebook, diary, journal — we’ll have some note-taking time


There’s something magical that happens when you communicate your ideal life and even before that, when you’re able to actually pinpoint what your ideal life looks like. Sometimes figuring out what you want is the primary challenge and what needs to occur before figuring out steps to attain that life. It’s much easier to work towards something when you know what that something is.

With that in mind, you’re led through a variety of wheels-turning activities to shift your perspective, get you thinking about things you’ve never thought about, and break down huge, overwhelming, where do I start?! goals into realistic and doable steps. You start with a blank canvas and fill it up with visual representations of how you’ll get where you want to be. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. Romantically. Physically. Financially. Mentally. Whatever-ally. This isn’t about dreams of what you want, this is about attainment of what you want.

Worried that you don’t know where you want to go let alone how you’ll get there? Don’t be. Your facilitator Saya, aka Accessible Oprah, is a dreamboat at getting you to foreign, scary, hidden places. She’s just the right blend of comfort and challenge, of letting you be and nudging.

Craft a Blueprint Board with yummy items like glue sticks, magazines, and stickers, then share your path and hear where others are headed. An inspiring, hands-on experience to embrace Future You with a warm hug and sense of purpose and direction. Working on ourselves amongst others working on themselves is all sorts of wonderful.
