Dream Factory Concord Breakfast, a Wonderful Success

June 6, 2018

Concord Team

Where did it all begin? What was the passion that sparked the creation of your business?

Our passion is the Essence of our work. It serves
as a touchstone for those times when the effort is overwhelming or the results disappointing.
Recalling our initial guiding passion reminds us of the energy underneath all we’re doing.
  • We re-ignited our passion at the meeting of the Dream Factory through exploration and discussion. We heard members tell stories of their initial passion and its transformation into their current mission in their work.
Lidia Kenig-Scher, Mary Anne Cleary, Martha Schwope, Janet Kessenich,
Sarah Ford-Terrey and Punita Arora briefly shared their stories of passion turned into purposeful mission.
We expanded the focus and explored what part community plays in generating passion. 
How does the Dream Factory ignite and support your passion?

We also had an update from our Transition Team about changes for the next season of the Dream Factory Concord Community and did an exercise from The Passion Test, to explore our passions led by Lidia Scher.  

Come get passionate with us!

Sarah read this at the breakfast.



There is a vitality,
a life force,
a quickening
that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.

And If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost.
The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine
how good it is
nor how valuable it is
nor how it compares with other expressions.

It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly
to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate YOU.

Keep the channel open…
No artist is pleased…

There is no satisfaction whatever at anytime
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction
a blessed unrest that keeps us marching
and makes “us” MORE alive than the others.

Martha Graham
( – a letter to Agnes De Mille-)
