Workshop Activity: Rediscovering Childhood Aspirations

What gripped the participants the most with Brian was his intuitive storytelling, which gradually became evident in his exercise. Brian introduces a reflective exercise titled, “What did you want to be when you grew up?”

This activity invites participants to delve into their earliest memories and aspirations, encouraging them to consider why those dreams were meaningful to them and what joy they continue to bring. The participants then shared what they wanted to be and discussed together. Not only did it encourage participants to tell their own stories, but it helped them to connect with others through a less conventional yet impactful manner.

This ongoing reflection helps individuals better understand their evolving desires and aspirations, fostering a deeper connection with themselves and, by extension, with others.

Brian continues to inspire and engage, making every interaction a memorable experience. Join him in rediscovering joy and inspiration through his unique blend of creativity and thoughtful reflection.
