Intention Setting Ceremony (Drop-In)

The beginning of a new year is often a time to reflect on changes we would like to make in ourselves and in our lives. 

With mindfulness, we are always at the beginning. We use the term "intention" instead of "resolution" or "goal". Here's why: A goal involves envisioning a future outcome, and then planning, applying discipline and working hard to achieve it. It involves living in an imagined future, not with what’s happening in the present moment. With a goal, the future is always the focus.

An intention is not oriented toward a future outcome: it is a path of practice that is focused on how you are being in the present moment. You set your intentions based on understanding what matters to you most and make a commitment to align your wordly actions with your inner values.

If you have any questions, please email or call (831) 588-9813.
