9781585420124: Visioning: Ten Steps to Designing the Life of Your Dreams

A truly visionary book based on the popular workshops of a highly acclaimed art therapist, designer, and pioneer in personal growth through creativity.

The ten steps of Visioning are a road map to the creative process applied to health, relationships, career, home, and other areas of life. The author of ten self-help classics, including the bestselling Recovery of Your Inner Child and The Power of Your Other Hand, Lucia Capacchione now offers a manual featuring ten simple steps for designing the life you've always wanted but didn't know how to achieve.

Visioning follows the same rules that inspire professional designers and demonstrates how anyone can use them in everyday living. Drawing on her experiences as a designer and corporate consultant, Capacchione applies the design principles she acquired from her own mentors: Charles Eames, Buckminster Fuller, Corita Kent, and Walt Disney. Readers learn how to apply her blueprint to their individual lives, from making a wish through "creative chaos" to realizing personal goals and dreams. With easy-to-follow and playful hands-on art activities and time-tested techniques, readers effectively grasp how to visualize their true heart's desires.

Lavishly illustrated with photos and collages, and filled with success stories, Visioning sparks "the designer within" and makes real the notion that if you can dream it, you can do it.

About the Author:

Dr. Lucia Capacchione, Ph.D., A.T.R., is an art therapist, artist, author, popular workshop leader, and corporate consultant who has worked for Hallmark, Mattel, and the Walt Disney Company. She lives near Big Sur, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

This how-to manual for "manifesting your heart's desire" will no doubt prompt memories of kindergarten collage-making for many readers. Based on her observations of engineers, architects and designers (including toy and theme park creators), Capacchione offers a framework for shepherding an idea into reality, whether the goal is to create a company mission statement, improve one's health or build a dream home. An art therapist, corporate consultant and the author of 10 books (The Creative Journal, etc.), she instructs readers on choosing a theme, gathering images and words that "grab" one's attention, finding order in the chaos, committing one's vision to paper and glue, getting feedback from others, dwelling on one's vision, getting help to implement the plan and celebrating the final result. With a tone that's both playful and serious, Capacchione provides detailed instructions and numerous exercises for working through this process. She also encourages journal writing (using both hands to engage both sides of the brain) and addresses common internal and external obstacles. Even if some of the numerous samples and stories culled from her workshops come across as a bit schematic and glib, Capacchione provides a fun and empowering approach to creativity for those willing to roll up their sleeves and play in the rich field of their desires.
