Lynn V. Andrews
Visioning has become a lost art for many. Joyce Schwarz’s book is a profound re-entry into the ancient process of seeing the mystery before it happens. A great read.

Doctor - Matthew B. James
Vision boards are an example of one of the key and fundamental practices in ancient Hawaiian Huna that was a part of focus on creating a positive future. Joyce has captured the essence of this in a clear and concise approach to modern thinking.

    The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life is a uniqu

    The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life is a unique "left-brain" approach to a "right-brain" activity. Author Joyce Schwarz captures not only the magic of vision boards with exquisite color photos but details the process of creating successful vision boards.

    For those like myself who often approach tasks with the left-brain first, Joyce walks us through the process of visioning and visualization. She distinguishes between the two activities and offers practical explanations and examples. This is followed by simple and practical exercises on creating a personal vision statement. With this firm foundation and understanding, one can then proceed to create their vision and vision board.

    Joyce offers an alternative to the all-encompassing life vision board to making vision boards for various areas of your life. She offers chapters on vision boards for relationships, gratitude, health and well-being. I found this approach to be less intimidating than creating one vision board that would cover all life areas.

    Case studies, the stories and examples of various vision boards, really set this book apart from others I have read. Hearing about real life experiences and seeing others' vision boards is truly inspiring. These make creating a vision board less intimidating. They show there is no right or wrong board.

    This book can be read many times and each time you will find a new tidbit and piece of wisdom calling out to you. This is a definite addition for the "self-help" or "self-discovery" bookshelf.

    “The Vision Board” by Joyce Schwarz is a fun book that features innovative tips on creating animated vision boards. The use of affirmations by Scott Adams (Dilbert Creator on page 78) andJim Carrey’spast visualization exercise(page 87) are only a couple of the fascinating examples used in this book. The information tidbit that caught my attention the most was the unique feature of keeping a journal of the future (page 90). “The Vision Board” by Joyce Schwarz is a light-hearted book that is recommended for those who feel an urge to combine personal goals with pictorial images.

    Clarifying your Vision!
    I first came across The Vision Board book by Joyce Schwarz on audio and was so intrigued I bought the book. Ms Schwarz lays out the information in a very understandable and encouraging way. It' believable and the thought of creating a vision board to design your dream life is inspiring and doable. Each time I read the book I find something new..often times, I have wonderful Aha! moments. This books takes you on a journey to fulfilling your dreams..one step at a time. She encourages you not to fear and doubt that you can have what you want in life. Putting it in pictures/images is a great way to reconnect often with your dream. Great book!
