Cultivating Intention Workshop

Everything we do begins with an intention. Our intentions are like seeds–if we ignore them, not much happens, but with some loving attention they grow and flourish. What do you want to nourish as you look towards a new year?

Guided writing, mindfulness, and reflection will all be part of this relaxing evening of self care.
