The agenda follows a path similar to the labyrinth, guiding participants from the everyday world to a point of inspiration at the center of the self, and then back again to the outside world with new awareness.
The format is flexible, but goes something like this:
Welcome – Nametag activity to set the tone for warmth and fun
Opening Ceremony - A simple ritual to create a space apart from everyday experiences
Connecting with each other and with an inspirational resource

Guided Reflection or Meditation
A pleasant inner journey

Embellish the doll figure
The love card or tag - A card or gift tag to accompany the doll
Guidance and ideas for writing the card/tag
