DESIGNING YOUR LIFE FOR WOMEN
ONE MONTH VIRTUAL JOURNEY
May 22 – June 26, 2021
Engage in a one-month journey with a group of women who have come together to work on the most important design project of all – your life.
Taught by Kathy Davies, Managing Director of the Stanford Life Design Lab and Susan Burnett, certified DYL Master Instructor and longtime business executive, this innovative digital solution gives you the opportunity to learn and practice ideas and tools contained in the NYT bestselling Designing Your Life, How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life in a life design community.
You will participate in 3 highly interactive virtual workshops where we will work together real-time to reframe dysfunctional beliefs, explore the social and personal narratives that shape us, and dig into design tools to increase your creativity and confidence. We will use breakout discussions, and online ideation tools to share and collaborate. We will heighten a mindful awareness of where you are now, use design tools for balance and energy and improvements, practice ways to frame problems and get unstuck, gain insights into honing your decision making, and design three possible future paths – Odyssey Plans – for your life.
Between virtual workshops, the DYL app will support your journey with additional material and tools, space for reflection, and social features to share and gain insights from your community.
The virtual journey price is $950. The following items are included in the price:
- 3 highly interactive zoom sessions where you will talk with other participants about your life and life design tools.
- Enrollment in the DYL Life Design App, specifically designed to support your one month experience with daily learning and action.
- Digital tools and worksheets to support your assessments and reflections.
- A 1.5 hour post retreat call with the instructors and fellow participants for follow-up and coaching.
