Jamie's Top Tips for hosting an Event
- Decide what you want to do - in this case, host a dreamboard circle
- Find an ally, one good friend (or sister - thank you, Shannon!) who will definitely be there with you to have fun.
- Plan the event activities and get supplies.
- Set a date, time and place.
- Be generous in your invitations. Be inclusive.
- Host the event, knowing that at minimum you and your friend are going to have a great time together.
Be generous in your invitations.
- Let go of trying to decide in advance who would be interested or great for your group. Instead, be free and abundant in your invitations and trust that the right people will turn up.
- Don't give up or be discouraged by sour or dismissive responses. You never know what seeds will be planted or are already stirring. The very people who poo-poo'd dreamboards just might join the circle one day.
- Trust your intuition. Don't hesitate to invite someone you just met or only know slightly. If you'd like them to be there, make the invitation.
- Let the invitation spread. Encourage people to bring a friend or pass along the invitation to anyone they think might enjoy making dreamboards or meeting new friends. Be open to who shows up.
- Stay unattached to the guest list. If it turns out that your circle is just you and your friend, awesome! You're going to have a great time intimately sharing your dreams and sipping tea or margueritas.
Full Moon Dreamboard Circles are powerful, creative communities, and I'd love to support you in creating one. I'm thinking it would be great to hold a free teleseminar on the topic. I'd share with you some Dreamboard Circle tips and you can ask me any questions you might have. Sound good?
NOTE: Our next online Full Moon Dreamboard Circle is on Tuesday, July 7th. If you're in the Toronto Area, you can join me for Dreamboard making on Sunday, July 5th. Click here for details. I can't wait to share the Full Buck Moon with you!
