Europe: Peace Starts With Me Vision Online Workshop

Prepared by Blessed family Department EU

This workshop was planned to happen in July in the UK but due to the Coronavirus crisis we decided to do it online. This projected was initiated by Rafael Guignard in cooperation with the European Blessed Family Department. In a very short time Orlande Schenk managed to bring an amazing team together that worked really well to make this workshop a beautiful experience. Even with a very short notice 40 participants from all over Europe came together for this 1st Peace Starts With Me Vision Online workshop.

This workshop helped all participants to build an inspiring and harmonious life vision and mission through learning success principles, a thorough goal setting process and deep personal introspection. During the workshop the participants wrote down very clearly their beliefs, vision, purpose and strategies in 12 Life Categories representing the 3 Great Blessings and brought it all together into one final harmonious life vision. This process helps to have create clear vision of the life we want to live that is clearly aligned with our beliefs, values and purpose. Creating this vision helps to find inspiration, clarity and clear decision making in daily life. Rafael Guignard who helped the participants through the process is a certified life and performance coach applying these principles in his own life in the past few years.

Here is the schedule with the 12 Life Categories explored during the workshop:

In every session there was a presentation containing a goal setting process, success principles, personal experiences, examples and questions to reflect on. Each time the participants had time for individual reflection time, pair sharing (at home or in break out groups), sharing insights with the whole group and questions and answers. This process of experiential learning is very effective because participants learn through principles, examples, self-reflection and sharing with each other.

It’s amazing how this very interactive workshop went so well over Zoom creating a beautiful and inspiring atmosphere and great relationships between the participants. Each session was very inspiring and insightful but the most powerful one was at the end when the participants went through a deep visualization exercise to see how they life could look life 5 years from now if they would accomplish all their visions and goals. Many participants had the feeling to really experience it like it was happening in the present moment.

The workshop participants are now part of private facebook group where they have access to all the recordings and can share their breakthroughs, challenges and resources with each other.

For those who are interested it is possible to get access to this group and recording to go through it like an online course. It is also possible to participate in weekly live coaching calls and to participate in the next level Peace Starts With Me Mastery Training. You will receive more information on these programs soon.
