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.

This is a work book on "designing" your life by accessing your heart's desire. I totally love this book and recommend it to anyone who is "searching" or wants help moving closer to their dream life. Read full review

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

User Review  - Nadeesha Cabral - Goodreads

This is a good one for a weekend retreat. Kind of not what I expected, but has some really good things you could get creative with provided you have some time. It's more like a study guide than a informative self help book. Read full review
