“The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers, creative and right brain thinkers.”

- Daniel Pink, A Whole New Mind

Julie Haupert, a Dreamtraveller herself, has created and will lead this one-of-a-kind workshop. She has crafted the following description to help others anticipate this magical day, but understands that there may still be questions. If you are intrigued, and eager for more information, please email Julie at jhaupert0@gmail.com

As a Dreamtraveller, you begin a creative adventure, a way to envision your travel dreams coming true by writing a personal narrative of your travel dreams and creating a vision/dream board collage to map out your unique dreamscape. You’ll explore, through your imagination, the locations you want to discover, linking your memories, tapping into your senses, embracing your daydreams and unleashing your imagination. You’ll use maps, journals, books, and photographs to shape your experience. This clarity of your desires creates meaningful, alive viaje (travel), and enhances the awareness of oneself and your travel dreams. It is a key to opening the door to the emergence of your future authentic travel experience.

As a Dreamtraveller you are creating your personal viaggio (travel) as you have always dreamed it. It’s being willing to push yourself outside of your mind chatter, instead, indulging in the clues your senses, dreams, memories and emotional connections give you.

Dreamtraveller is an opportunity to  go beyond your daily identity, daydreaming as you design; being original, using imagery, inspiration and inventiveness. Imagining and hatching the potentiality of your future explorations while your subconscious recognizes and absorbs it.

Give yourself the time to be still and go within yourself to contemplate and to prepare your dream… fantasizing and researching your journey. Your imagination develops the story.

Use your inner clues as guides to help you explore the places you want to go. How will it look... will it be raining? What am I wearing … a warm itchy blue sweater? How will I travel... by a squealing open-air train? What colors are the leaves on the trees? Is that the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls coming from the old stone bakery down the street?  It’s November, it’s cold and the glowing amber lit windows of the bookshop feel welcoming . . . just like the windows in my grandma’s country home.

Next, create a vision- or dream-board as you continue to visualize your journey. Using your first thoughts and intuitive insights as you “see” it come alive right in front of your eyes!  Remember, you will be traveling anywhere in the world maybe even your own backyard! Put on your Ruby Slippers Dorothy!

Dreamtraveller activities are designed so participants can experience the pure pleasure of their inner process. They will blend the joy of mapping their voyage, mixing in favorite passions, invoking it’s colors to create a unique travel tapestry becoming real. There are no rules or expectations. Just let go, and be open to the transformational process of planning the resa (travel) of your dreams.  A deeply satisfying, incredibly playful and enlightening quest!
