What is the Butterfly Ship Adventure Project 

EMWA Butterfly ship adventure project can built in a group setting or alone in the home environment. You build your own 3-d vision board in the form of a ship. It is designed to build self-esteem and distraction from fear and negative thoughts. Each kit consist of precut wooden pieces that are sanded and ready to assembly, colored, butterfly sails and a step by step guided workbook are included.

Who is the Project for? 

The program is designed to be used by a variety of populations. It is:

  • For women undergoing treatment for cancer and for cancer survivors.

  • For women in transition seeking a new direction and purpose in life.

  • For children to ease the anxiety and fear around their parent with cancer.

How the Project works

  • The project provides women with the opportunity to experience the transforming power of their own imagination and creativity through building a butterfly ship.

  • The ship consists of precut wooden pieces that are sanded and ready for assembly.  No sharp tools or cutting are required.  No woodworking experience is required.

  • The ship has seven butterfly sails. The butterfly is a symbol of beauty and transformation and will create positive emotions that will, like the wind, help carry your hopes and fears to a manageable state.

  • The program allows women to tailor these and add their own unique goals.

> Nourish Your Spirit

> Nourish Your Mind

> Nourish Your Body

> Support Team / Friends

> Value

> Vision

> Laughter

After completion, they will color a paper ship  and create their first goal to fit their personalities.  They will then be able to use as template to paint ship or varnish ship at home. The butterflies included are used as sails and represent their goals and dreams.

" I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop! I’m a newbie and Cindy’s warm and welcoming way instantly put me at ease. The project was fun and I was so proud of the beautiful wooden Butterfly Ship I made. What a wonderful takeaway to remind me of the day’s adventure and those to come! The accompanying workbook was excellent! I loved having thought-provoking questions and journaling space all in one book... Laura
