Vision Board Party

Dawne Horizons Spiritual Spa & Healing Center, LLC.
17606 Main Street #204 Dumfries, VA 22026 United States
About the Event
As we prepare for the new year, many of us make resolutions in hopes of bettering ourselves and achieving our goals. We plan to eat healthier, exercise more, spend time with loved ones, and take a much-needed vacation. In addition to making resolutions, some of us create vision boards, hoping that by manifesting the pictures of our desires we will be more likely to achieve them. While writing down our goals and aspirations is important, it's equally essential to Get The Vision FROM God. Writing The Vision and Making It Plain is Scriptural, but without seeking God's guidance, we run the risk of working or confessing in vain. That's why the Dreams & Vision Workshop offers an opportunity to encounter God and receive the vision He has for your life. Join us in creating a roadmap for your future with God as your guide.

Stone Hill Amphitheatre 40 Spring Wish Lane Flint Hill, VA 22627 United States
About the Event
When it comes to musical works that evoke images and feelings, there are few examples quite as captivating as those created by Mendelssohn, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, and Liszt. These composers explore the boundaries of sound to encapsulate a singular theme and weave a tapestry of emotions. Fantasy by Mendelssohn and Sonata No. 2 by Rachmaninoff are excellent examples of the artistry behind multi-movement works. With a singular thread woven throughout, these pieces take listeners on a journey that is both fantastical and mesmerizing. On the other hand, Debussy and Liszt's pieces are just as captivating, but they invoke specific images and places chosen by the composer. Whether it's an imaginary world or a scene from real life, these composers transport listeners to another place and time. The art of music is truly extraordinary, and these composers are masters in their craft.
