VANCOUVER START-A-CONVERSATION SPRING WORKSHOP 2017
DISCOVERY CHAT CARDS USED AT THE END OF A TRAINING SESSION
"When Laurel invited me to choose a card from her deck of Discovery cards I
was drawn to the beautiful photo of a sunflower. Sunflowers are known to
track the sun and I chose it as a reminder to always face the sun and look
to the brighter side. The card has found its home on my vision board where
I can see it, and be reminded of its message, daily."
"I loved the activity of choosing a card at the end of our class. It gave us something to remember the class by as well as the people we had shared the experience with. It was really interesting hearing why other people chose the cards they did - everyone went for something different, and everyone had a story about why they had chosen that particular card! For example, someone picked up a card with an image of an old typewriter on it, as they had done a lot of writing when they were younger, and it reminded them of the passion they had for writing. It was very moving to hear this person talk about her old passion, and have that connection with something she had loved to do. It's a really cool way to get a glimpse of someone's life in a fun and informal setting, and I would recommend the activity as a great ice-breaker!"
"I picked this card because I love seeing the sun rise and set, and because this card reminded me of hope. The idea that every day a new day dawns and we get to start over or try again - we're given that opportunity every day. It's a beautiful picture, and I have it on my wall so I see it every morning and have that reminder that whatever happens, the sun will be there again tomorrow."
“I loved many of your cards but this one really attracted my attention mostly because of the spark in the tree. For me, it represented a “spark of hope”, exactly what I needed the day I chose it and at this time in my life. I also love the fact that the card is mixing light and darkness, the fine balance between both is also something that really resonates with me. Peace, quiet and mystery and some other words that come to mind when I look at it.” Coaching Student
