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 virtual one.

You’ll need an internet connection and the free Zoom app. You are encouraged to turn on your video to make community more community'esque but being on camera is not required. You should be able to attend live; this is not a replay offering. Times are CDT. 


"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.”

It's not a Vision Board. It's not a Dream Board. It's not a Goal Board. It’s a Blueprint Board. Craft the life you WILL have this year.

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 where you’ll actually go? 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.
