GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a spot in Heidi Swapp’s upcoming The Art Of Observation 12-wee workshop at Big Picture Classes.

We have all heard about the unexamined life and its worth…when Socrates taught his students to challenge the norm and question the world, the outcome was his death – a high price to pay! Are you ready to challenge your norm and look at your life in a new and exciting way?

Questions are the creative acts of intelligence. It is through asking questions and figuring out the answers along the way that we learn to value and cherish the life that we live. Novelist Thomas Berger said, “The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge.”

Asking questions and making observations in our life and in the world around us will help us to appreciate the beauty and wonder that is our everyday. Life is CRAZY! It’s busy and full, and complicated and dramatic! It’s up and down; there are beautiful triumphant moments, and heartbreaking disappointments—somehow, all combined, they equal something wonderful and worth remembering.

Register and read rest of description here.

This 12 week workshop runs from April 5-June 27. Cost is $99.

    Great giveaways! They all look fantastic. I may buy the 2peas one win or not! I’ve also been looking at Heidi’s class, but the cost is too much for me right now. I keep thinking of how my kids’ younger years are a blur to me now and to avoid that happening with today’s memories, I need to learn how to ‘observe’ Thanks for the chance to win!
