We’ll also explore strategies for understanding and letting go of our judgmental inner voices, so you can build self-compassion and reconnect with the unique beauty within you.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” Eleanor Roosevelt once said. What are your big dreams? Are you moving towards them – or did you get a little lost along the way?

In the busyness of everyday life, it’s easy to become disconnected from our dreams. Sometimes we stop dreaming altogether and get stuck thinking small, caught up in the stories we tell ourselves. 

In this Beyond Story workshop, you’ll reconnect with forgotten dreams and discover new ones through painting and drawing. Experienced StoryArtist Raymond Lim will also share his own story about how creativity helped him discover and reach for his dreams.
