Visioning: Graphic Facilitation for Life Planning and Group Expression

Visioning is a technique that has its origins in the cave paintings of early human beings throughout the world. Ancient peoples made supplications to the powers that controlled their lives through graphic representations. Visioning permits expression of areas of the brain that direct our lives, make our plans, hold dreams and realistic goals in balance, and even call upon forces out of our control to participate in our personal realization. Visioning for individuals is a journey into the key questions that demand our attention, and a practical approach. A technique that is applicable for individuals and groups, Visioning creates one of those rare moments when it is possible to see at the same time what everyone at a meeting is thinking, a process that encourages the expression of ideas that are inclusive of the thoughts of each participant. Visioning sessions for individuals require 2 hours and a desk or table surface that is at least 3 to 4 feet wide and 4 to 6 feet in length. Visioning sessions for groups require a morning or an afternoon, and a room with at least one clear wall that is at least 16 feet long.
