Actively shape your Future with the Tapestry of my Life© method

Changes are part of our life. To make seasons of change a success , we need to take the time to consciously look at and evaluate a situation. This results in clarity, strength and confidence for a fresh start.


During everyday life we are so busy most of the time that we don’t have the peace of mind to sort out our thoughts and think them through until the end.


Stop the rat race for three hours and actively shape your future. 


Identify the strengths, competences, character traits and values that have positively impacted your life to clearly see the potential of your future.



The Tapestry of my Life method has proven very successful in the following situations:


  • I’m having a crisis and need to see clearly again.
  • I need peace and quiet to be able to sort through my thoughts.
  • My job is unfulfilling – how will I survive this until retirement?
  • My work situation has radically changed – what shall I do?
  • I need to find a work-life balance.
  • I will soon be retiring – what will I do with my time then?
  • I must learn to relax.
  • What gives me joy?
  • How can I become more resilient?
  • We are empty nesters – what now?



What to expect from the workshop:


Step 1:

A certified coach will help you to evaluate your biography. You will look at the different periods of your life and remember the good moments that have filled you with joy. A simple symbol will help you to highlight these moments on your tapestry.


Over time you will recognize recurring motives that have impacted your life in a positive way.


Step 2:

This compilation of positive moments will give you the courage to actively and consciously shape your future. You will formulate desires and goals that will help you get started.

I’m so happy that my wife has remembered our common dream.

It has once again become our common theme and it provides us direction no matter what obstacles lie ahead.

It was important to see the times at which I excelled most at my job, and how many years are still left to be filled. It was also good to visualize the goals we have in common and what we can/need to do today to achieve them.

I have been made aware to all of this through the tapestry of my life and continue to work on myself every day. – C.E

Simply gave me a good overview of the past and the future of my life by providing a strong foundation. Thank you so much! – G.O.

It opened my eyes to the fact I need to prepare myself for my pension far more. It also gave me clarity over all the good options I have with my skill set. – F.B.

While drawing, different images came up that I wasn’t aware of before. The fact that my father had invested so much into me at the young age of five is something I will forever be grateful for. I was only able to see this connection through the use of illustration and symbols. Thank you. –  A.B.
