Session 1: 9:30am-12pm
Session 2: 1pm-3:30pm

$150 General | $125 Family level and above members

Description

Time for YOU! Explore the wild space of your personal feelings, likes and dislikes through activities from DREAM UP NOW, a soon-to-be-released workbook that supports you as you navigate emotions and learn to turn them into opportunities to reach your goals. You will grow -- and possibly discover a creative talent you didn’t know you had -- while exploring the museum’s exhibits, making music, writing (maybe a story, poem, letter, postcard, or even a song), meditating, or cutting and pasting if that’s more your speed. This workshop creates a safe space for you to become more you.
