Here's what our friends are saying about Dreaming In Color!

I have worked with Amy Butler Design and Hildie Dunn for a year. It has been amazing, organic and so inspiring. Hildie teaches a beautiful new way to look at your life. You learn to work from your dreams and take down the bad theories that stop you from being your best true self. Amy is open in sharing what she has learned and how it has guided her in her business and life. The pair of them together offer so much love, positive energy and guidance. It has been one of the most eye opening profound experiences of my life. - Cindy

Here are a couple of pieces that Hildie and I wrote to share a little bit more about Handel Life Coaching.

The Power of Pursuing Your Dreams ~ a fabulous description of Hildie's work as a life coach

As a life coach, I help people figure out their dreams and what they really want. There are lots of types of dreams and goals to achieve in your life. At the Handel Group®, we break down a person's life into 18 areas: relationship to self, relationships with another, character traits, family, career, time, body, spirituality, money, bad habits, community, sex, romance, home, personal space, learning, fun/adventure, health.

When I work with a client, we tackle every area of their life to make sure they are dreaming and seeing the bigger picture of what they can really have. It's about dreaming and being happy and healthy in every area of your life. Here's how to start:

  1. Grab a pen and paper and look at the list of 18 areas of life. Let yourself think deeply about what you want in your life and choose three areas you want to address and create a dream.
  2. For each area, choose one or two specific goals that you can accomplish in the next six months that would make you happy and proud.
  3. Once you have identified your dream, you are the one who can make it happen. For example, if you chose home as one of the areas you would like to improve, make a plan to find a new place to live that works better for you. If you are unable to move for financial or other reasons, redecorate your home or get rid of the clutter. There are many things you can do to create a better home for yourself, but if you don't dream, nothing will change.

Following your dreams is the act of loving life. Join me for "Dreaming in Color" - a weekend workshop packed with ideas, creative insights, and inner exploration. Or try the Handel Group's flagship workshop Design Your Life Weekend held in cities nationwide.

Love, Hildie

Discussion from Amy's web site explaining her partnership with Hildie Dunn and the Handel Group

I am partnering with my life coach Hildie Dunn to offer up some powerful teleseminars and telecourses in hopes of inspiring more of you to dream bigger and believe in your dreams. My experience with Hildie has been phenomenal - not just in terms of business and creativity, but in ALL areas of my life. I believe we are all here to shine our light and give fully of who we are. We are meant to have a life full of love, deep joy and satisfaction. The tools that I have learned with Hildie and the Handel Method® have helped me access these qualities in myself and I'm deeply grateful to have the opportunity to share them with you.

If you are an artist, creative spirit or a design entrepreneur I know you can benefit greatly from these events.

You are here for a reason and the timing is right for you to receive the support and inspiration your soul is craving. Know you are a treasure and a gift!

With All My Love,
