Love What You Do
Do you long to wake up in the morning with a sense of purpose and passion? Does the idea of having a deep inner knowledge of who you are and what is most important to you excite you? Would you love to engage more with the fun, creative, playful parts of you that inspire your soul?
Most of us wish to live a life we love: one that has meaning and purpose, in which our passions, talents, values and strengths all flow through both our work and personal life.
Imagine what life would be like if you were following a life-long vision that filled you with passion, curiosity and excitement.
By the end of Find What You Love, Love What You Do, you will have a deeper and more intimate sense of your Life-Calling; an answer to the question “How will I know I have had a good life?”; and greater passion and excitement about your life and your future. You will have explored and uncovered the deepest truth of your heart, bringing it out into the open to have a chance to shine.

Are you feeling stuck or burnt out, facing difficult changes, or simply yearning for something you cannot imagine having? If so, this workshop by Imagework pioneer and Skyros co-founder Dr Dina Glouberman can help you:
The secret is to educate your imagination to bring together the spiritual and the practical - learn to attend to the whisperings of your heart and soul while being grounded in the real world. You will emerge from the workshop with the clarity and confidence to take your next step in life. You will also have a magic box of tools, indeed a new way of thinking, that you can use to understand, protect, and guide yourself, not just during the workshop but for the rest of your life. If you wish, you can also form small groups to support each other and keep each other on track after the course is over.
Since you are what you imagine, if where you are is not where you want to be, why not learn to imagine better?
You have changed my life and helped me to have a second chance at living and being happy. Recent course participant.

When I did your course in Skyros in 1994, I nicknamed you the Yehudi Menuhin of therapy, and your work reminded me of a fabulous painting with a lot of fine brushstrokes. Now I feel you are actually the art gallery itself. Vivienne
