What's your Foundry dream? We invite you to do this guided meditation. It is designed to let your subconscious lead you into an imagined future in which the Foundry site is saved, and transformed into something wonderful — something that's exactly right for the community, the City, the Province, and Canada. 

Below is a link to the recording of the guided meditation. Find a place you can be comfortable; you can sit or even lie down while you imagine. Have a notebook and pen or pencil or keypad nearby, so that you can take notes immediately after your dream without disturbing the mood.

And if you're willing, we'd love you to share your Foundry Dream with others. Email it to us at [email protected] we will build it into a compilation of Foundry Dreams. If you would also like to post it on social media, hashtag it #FoundryDream so we can find it.

Guided Meditation (Written)

We recommend using the audio, but if you prefer written instructions, here they are.

  • Find a place where you can relax and be free of distractions. 
  • Take three slow, deep breaths.
  • Now pretend it is five years in the future. The Foundry has been transformed into something wonderful! 
  • Imagine going to the Foundry site. Are you walking? Riding a bicycle? Rolling up in a wheelchair?
  • Enter a building, and take a few moments to look around. What do you see? 
  • What sounds do you hear? 
  • What are you here to do? 
  • Imagine moving around the site. What else do you see? What do your other senses encounter?
  • Take one last look around.. The Foundry in your dream is like this because of the work you and others in the community have invested. Take a moment to feel gratitude for this beautiful place.
  • Now say goodbye — for now — to your Foundry Dream.
