Gretchen Martens

Vision Boarding to Happiness


We went to the vision board parties and we update our vision boards every year. We post motivational quotes on the fridge and affirmations on our bathroom mirrors. So, why do so many of us struggle to find happiness? Gretchen has always believed that we are not defined by our circumstances. We are defined by our heart, our soul, and our spirit. We are whole, perfect, and complete wherever we are at on our life’s journey. Gretchen’s research in Bhutan, the country that launched the global happiness movement, validated her belief that true happiness comes from inside. In this interactive workshop with Gretchen, you will learn how you can begin to cultivate authentic, resilient happiness.

  • We will explore the different meanings of happiness and how they can detract from our own sense of happiness
  • We will begin to create personal definitions of happiness that reflect our values and deepest desires
  • We will share practices that create a happiness mindset
  • We will create Happiness Vision Boards that align with our deepest Selves

Favorite Relaxation Tip

Place your hands in prayer position in front of your heart center. Close your eyes. Take four deep breaths in and out, doing four counts in and four counts out. Sit quietly for a minute or two, allowing yourself to be enfolded in the peace and gentleness of the present.
