To identify a meaningful purpose to which you can devote your time. To guide your choices when opportunities present themselves. To give your choices energy by regularly visualizing them.
Are you experiencing any of the concerns people typically have when they approach or enter retirement?
Here are a few ideas why you'll appreciate being in the workshop, why it's worth your money, and more importantly, your time.
How to decide what Savouring Life looks like for you.
This workshop will walk you step-by-step through a process to do exactly that.
What three things you MUST HAVE to live a joyful life. Without these all the riches in the world won’t make you happy.
You'll see these in the 2nd hour.
What one simple mindset change to adopt that leads to an empowering point of view. Adopt this mindset and you’ll never be the same.
It's simple but not easy. It will become easier with practice.
How to reframe your path so that you experience Life with childlike play, joy and wonder, no matter what circumstances you are experiencing.
The story you tell yourself about yourself is vitally important to give your life meaning.
How to create the next chapters of your life story, one you’ll love to live.
It's IMPERATIVE that you take responsibility for your choices. Attend this workshop to get started. It's a no brainer.
How to savour life more by doing less. Think Slow Food.
We don't have time to do all the things we'd like to do. You'll need to deliberately choose a few experiences to focus on. This workshop has you do that.
How to honour what you claim is important to you.
Here's a clue ... begin by writing it down.
Why go as far as you can from wherever you are. Think Sudoku puzzles.
How moments of courage, stepping into the unknown, present solutions to current problems and whole new vistas of possibilities.
What to do if you are optimizing the wrong things, things that don’t belong in your life?
STOP! Reflect and contemplate what does belong in your life. That's exactly what you'll do in this workshop.
How to answer Peggy Lee’s song “Is that All There Is?
Paraphrasing Elon Musk: "There have to be reasons that you get up in the morning and you want to live. Why do you want to live? What's the point? What inspires you? What do you love about the future?”
How to identify what you’d be passionate about so that you can be happier by pursuing that thing.
We'll answer this question in the 1st hour of the workshop.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm uncomfortable on ZOOM. Do I need to be seen or speak?
Absolutely not. You can choose to keep your camera and microphone turned off. You will not be called upon to share the answers you come with for yourself. Also, you can email John any questions you have and he will get back to you after the workshop.
What if I cannot print the documents you share?
You can simply use your own paper to capture all the answers you come up with. If you are willing to share your address, John will mail to you a blank IKIGAI diagram and a blank Personal North Star.
Will a recording be available?
While the workshop will be recorded, that recording is only for use by Play At Creation to improve subsequent workshops. In the future we will make portions of the recording available to participants who join the 8-week DREAM course.
Will the workshop outcomes be sufficient for me to savour life or do I need to join the DREAM course?
You will be provided everything you need to apply the three documents towards savouring life. However, if you would like to go even more deeply into the visioning process, along with a cohort of others who are are also going deeper, the DREAM course will be an excellent next step. To make it more attractive for you to take the DREAM course, your payment for the February 28th workshop will be credited towards the price of the DREAM course.
Can I get a refund after I take the workshop?
There are no refunds once the workshop starts. If you decide you do not want to participate, please email John ([email protected]) by 9am Mountain Time on February 28th, 2022. If you cannot attend the workshop for whatever reason, please cancel your registration before the fact.
