Here’s what others from our community have to say about Design the Life You Love, its impact on their life, and why they recommend you attend one of our events or experiences

Ayse's Wednesday Tea Gatherings have become a highlight of my week. Her exercises transport me from the day-to-day to an open-minded space.
Her guest speakers bring perspectives and information applicable to assist me in the current challenges. I feel included in her network through the chat sharing activities. Seeing her lead the group with her design approach inspires me to creativity.

Ayse’s “Design the Life You Love” virtual coffee chat, is a weekly half hour of creative reflection with my global design team across 12 locations, on how we feel during COVID19.

Via design thinking methodologies, Ayse is stimulating a creative dialogue on how to turn current challenges into opportunities, by acknowledging our current heroes and by exploring the metamorphosis we all go through during this period. Via sketching, virtual sharing and joint reflection there is conversation, recognition and empathy for each other. Thank you Ayse for this weekly moment of deep connection and intimacy across my global team. Who could have imagined, we could achieve this virtually.

Ayse’s “Design the Life You Love” virtual tea party is a magical and magnificent way to spend an hour of quarantine with a friendly, supportive global audience.
I found it refreshing to work on constructive introspection via quick sketching exercises, rich conversation, and learning from a wise person. Ayse and team have figured out a way to transcend the limitations of the virtual medium. When her friend talked us through a meditation session, I appreciated the friend’s words entering directly into my head via headphones. You don’t get closeness like that by sitting in a large studio with an instructor.

Friends, there are ways that we can strive and grow during these unusual times. Start by attending a virtual tea party.
